SciFi: Act 2 Walkthrough

In an obscure reference lies the culprit to the mystery behind all this event. Who are the robots working for? Find out right after the jump in the walkthrough of Act 2 of the SciFi event!

After completing Dark Matter Pt. 7 and starting act 2 the story continues.

Smack to the Future Pt. 1

Stephen Hawking starts

Stephen Hawking: There’s something strange about this wormhole from another dimension.
Wiggum: How so?
Stephen Hawking: Robots are emerging at a rate of ten thousand kilotonnes per hour. But the mass of the remote universes is only decreasing at a rate of one microgram per century!
Homer: This is America, sir! I’ll kindly remind you not to use the metric system unless you want your face punched off.
Stephen Hawking: Let’s examine the robot guts more closely. Hey Sky Finger! Play with your funbots!

Task: Tap a Robot

Lisa: What are those things popping out between the microprocessor and the steam valve?
Stephen Hawking: They’re chronons! The quantum of time!
Professor Frink: Of course, that explains everything! I’m assuming.
Stephen Hawking: Don’t you see? The robots aren’t coming from another space. They’re coming from another time!
Alternate Evil Homer: Crafty!

Smack to the Future Pt. 2

Stephen Hawking starts

Stephen Hawking: Based on the polarization and general demeanor of the chronons, I deduce that these robots are invading from the future.
Lisa: Aha! Then we’ve just got to wait until the robots are built, then stop them before they come!
Stephen Hawking: Exactly. But that might not be for hours, or even centuries.
Professor Frink: B’hoy! Let’s use donuts to speed up time!
Stephen Hawking: In what universe does that make even the slightest bit of sense?

Task: Make Alternate Homers Plunder the Multiverse
If the user has Bart: Task: Make Bart Slingshot Chronons Into the Black Hole
Task: Make Lisa Wait for the Robots to be Built [x5]
Time: 4h
Location: PolyVac

System Message: While these Alternate Homers are visiting your Springfield, keep sending them to Plunder the Future!

Smack to the Future Pt. 3

Stephen Hawking starts

Stephen Hawking: Bart? Have you been shooting chronons at the black hole?
Bart: Probably. I shoot a lot of stuff at a lot of things.
Stephen Hawking: This is incredible! You’ve opened up a gateway to the future. We need to send a scouting party through, to ascertain what fate awaits us.
Stephen Hawking: Professor Frink, you’re not helping much around here. Lead this ragtag band of Homers on a journey of scientific exploration.
Homer: With a side order of plundering!

Task: Make Stephen Hawking Chair-Butt Frink Into the Future
If the user has Professor Frink: Task: Make Frink Get Chair-Butted Into the Future
Time: 8h
Location: PolyVac
Task: Make Alternate Homers Plunder The Future [x5]
Time: 4h
Location: PolyVac

Homer: And… we’re back.
Stephen Hawking: Did you locate the future source of the robot army?
Homer: No, we totally forgot about that. But we sure plundered everything that wasn’t nailed down!
Alternate Kingsized Homer: They nail things down in the future because stuff tends to hover.
Lisa: Wait, where’s Professor Frink? He didn’t come back!
Stephen Hawking: He must have become stuck somewhere in the distant future. Act 3, most likely.

Smack to the Future Pt. 4

Stephen Hawking starts

Marge: I hate to nag, but I’m still being stabbed by robots from the future. Ow! Does anyone have a tourniquet?
Stephen Hawking: Hmm. Maybe we can turn this time tunnel to our advantage.
Stephen Hawking: I’ll use the parts from the smashed evil robots to build GOOD robots. Then I’ll send them into the future to stop the evil robots before they travel to the past!
Lisa: Hooray! We will have been saved!
Stephen Hawking: I’ll just bolt these robot scraps together, like so, then program in the three laws of robotics.
Ned: Heavens to heckaroonie, that won’t work! If you want goodness, the program you need is “GOTO 10.”
Ned: The Ten Commandments, that is!

Task: Make Ned Teach the Old Testament to New Robots
Time: 8h
Location: PolyVac

Smack to the Future Pt. 5

Stephen Hawking starts

Stephen Hawking: There, I’ve got all three laws of robotics programmed in.
Ned: Hold your horsies! I’m still sermonizing about the Ten Commandments, plus I threw in a couple extras about not coveting thy neighbor’s premium items.
Stephen Hawking: What is wrong with you people? You’re prattling on while I’m trying to save your lives and your universe!
Ned: …and thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s Barney’s Bowlarama, and… done. Okily dokily, now you can save us.
Stephen Hawking: The illogic of the human race never ceases to enrage me. Now gather up some chronons to propel these robots to the future!

Task: Gather Chronons by Tapping Robots [x5]

Smack to the Future Pt. 6

Stephen Hawking starts

Stephen Hawking: The good robots are fully functional and ready to enter the time hole.
Herman: Hold on there, citizen. The evil robot militia is heavily armed with top quality pikes and daggers. And one’s packing a trident.
Marge: Ow! Ow! Ow!
Herman: Yeah, that guy. If we want our good, patriotic robots to stand a fighting chance, we’ve got to arm them with exactly identical weaponry.

Task: Make Stephen Hawking Arm the Good Robots with Weapons
Time: 8h
Location: Police Station

Smack to the Future Pt. 7

Stephen Hawking starts

Stephen Hawking: If nobody has any further objections, I’ll be saving the universe now.
Rev. Lovejoy: Hurry, hurry! After one final prayer.
Rev. Lovejoy: Oh mighty Sky Finger, cradle these robot souls in the loving bosom of your fingertip.
Stephen Hawking: Now?
Rev. Lovejoy: Amen.
Stephen Hawking: Now?
Rev. Lovejoy: Hurry up!
Stephen Hawking: Robots! Into the time breach!

Task: Make Stephen Hawking Send Good Robots to the Future
Time: 8h
Location: PolyVac
Task: Make Evil Homer Scheme
Time: 4h
Location: PolyVac

Marge: It didn’t work! In fact, there are even more evil robots now! And they’re equally well armed! Ow ow ow!
Herman: Was that the trident?
Marge: No, just three ordinary javelins.

Smack to the Future Pt. 8

Lisa starts

Lisa: Why didn’t your plan work, Professor?
Stephen Hawking: It appears there was a polarity error in my computation of the chronon spin matrix.
Alternate Barbarian Homer: Blarrrgh?
Stephen Hawking: My army of good robots didn’t go to the future… they went to the past!
Comic Book Guy: Uh, hello? That makes no sense. If they went to the past, we would have seen them come out.
Lisa: We did see them come out! The robots we just sent into the time hole WERE the robots that attacked us in the past!
Ned: But the robots we built were good, God-fearing robots! What would make them turn evil?
Comic Book Guy: There’s only one logical answer. Somebody must have sabotaged their programming. But who?

Task: Make Evil Homer’s Eyes Dart Side-to-Side Suspiciously
Time: 4h
Location: PolyVac

Smack to the Future Pt. 9

Homer starts

Homer: Oh my God, I know who did it! It had to be Evil Homer! He’s been scheming and scheming!
Homer: Plus his eyes were darting suspiciously, and he’s got the word “EVIL” right there in his name!
Alternate Evil Homer: What, I? How preposterous. Admittedly, I’ve been scheming… but about something completely unrelated, and yet to be revealed.
Homer: Then who did it?
Lisa: Hang on… there was someone else trying to control the robots with ten, count them, TEN commandments!
Lisa: It was Ned Flanders! He must have converted the robots into religious zealots, programmed to punish the sins of humanity!
Ned: Gosh, I guess it WAS me. Well, forgive and forget, right? I believe that’s in the Bible. Right after “an eye for an eye.”

Task: Make Ned Hide From an Angry Mob
Time: 8h
Location: PolyVac

Smack to the Future Pt. 10

Stephen Hawking starts

Rev. Lovejoy: Kill Ned! He used love and prayer to turn the robots into murder machines!
Alternate Strongman Homer: I still say it was Evil Homer!
Rev. Lovejoy: Kill someone! Anyone!
Stephen Hawking: Stop it! It wasn’t Ned, and it wasn’t Evil Homer.
Stephen Hawking: It was… me!
Marge: *gasp* Why, Professor? Why did you send evil robots to attack us in the past?
Stephen Hawking: Why not?
Comic Book Guy: Checkmate.
Stephen Hawking: You people drove me insane! Everything you do and say is totally anti-science. My sympathy lies with the reasonable, rational killbots.
Robot: And we like Professor Hawking, because he doesn’t have a weird human accent.
Homer: You won’t get away with this, Hawking! Save us, mighty Sky Finger! Smash the robots!
Stephen Hawking: Go ahead! I’ll just use the pieces to make even more robots! That’s why they’ll never stop coming!
Comic Book Guy: Curses. Unlike most time travel stories, this one has no logical flaws whatsoever. We are defeated.
Homer: I’m not giving up that easily. Fight, everyone! Fight for my very life!
