That's what it does.
Huh. I finally got this app, and I find that you cannot play it offline. Since I don't have wi-fi at home, I can't play.
Oh well, Angry Birds is fun.
I FINALLY go Zoot!!! It took me 7 tries!!!
I went to the mall, which has wi-fi, and noodled around with this for a while. It's cute, but it'd be better if I could play it at home, so I could put it down when a long task is running and come back when it's done. Oh well. Anyhow, my code is 33322992KG, should you want to see my messy stage.
Weellll technically you can. You do not have to have the game running for it to run the timer for whatever it is you are doing. You can go somewhere with wifi, start it, do whatever you need to do, exit the game and leave. Return later to someplace with wifi after the time is up and there you go.
Unless I misunderstood what you mean
You misunderstood what I mean. That's good advice, letting the timer run between game sessions, and that's what I've done. However, what I mean is instead if having to go somewhere for the purpose of mooching Wi-fi, and having, say, an hour to play, if I could play in little bits and drabs at home, all casual-like, I could get more done with less time-killing. Say I had three sequential one-hour tasks, I could start one, go off and rip up some ostrich feathers, log back in, start the next, go hot-glue those feathers down, check back in, and so on. I could do it in the background. I don't often feel like going somewhere for the express reason of playing a game.
(Also, breeding Muppets is weird.)
I've gotten Beaker and Zoot but have had a heck of a time getting Rizzo or Walter. Also been trying for the last week. Have truthfully lost some interest in the game.
I did too. I'm using the correct combinations and they purposely give me the wrong Muppets. I've lost interest in waiting three hours at a time to see that I got another Jax Strumley. I will not spend my diamonds on that!
The annoying thing is, you can't cancel a digitization while it's in process. I already memorized all the Muppet's movements by now, so I can tell which is what during the digitization. When I realize it's the wrong combination, I can't cancel in middle of the process.
This app obviously must do something right because I do keep coming back to it pretty much everyday, though the "My Singing Monsters" mechanics do feel a touch shoehorned onto the Muppets. I've gotten into a pretty consistent pattern of loading it up once before lunch, and then again right before I go to bed. With all that time in between sessions, the timers don't ever really get in the way, even the twelve hour ones. It's not much of a game, but it is fun to keep track of.
Incidentally, I've found that's is pretty easy to tell if HARV-E is going to spit out the Muppet you want since the ones you're going for pretty much invariably take longer to load up than the wrong ones. When going for Gonzo or whoever, if you get a four hour wait time you know it won't be Gonzo, but if it's twelve hours, you know you've got him, before he ever even makes it to the digitizer. It doesn't actually save any time, of course, but at least you know right away...
Well after a week of trying and failing, it looks like i FINALLY have Beaker genereating for the kitchen. (12 hour digitizing compared to 6 hour or even 30 min). Funny thing is there were certain Muppets who would not even come close to digitizing, but soon as I downloaded an update last night, all of a sudden my first try after that worked lol.
Now hopefully it works the same way to net me Rizzo and Walter (and afterwards Kermit for the kitchen) because I have been having just as little luck with them as I ws having with Beaker.
I actually really like this game. It seems sort of "easier" to get stuff than it is in The Simpsons Tapped Out game, so I like that lol. I just got Mahna Mahna for my main stage, I just need Fozzie now.
I wish there wasn't a "cap" on the amount of money that your characters make, that way if I'm really busy they'll still make a lot of money. I don't keep up and keep checking every time I think a Muppet might be done.
Well a few hours ago I downloaded this app. I was surprised to see that it's a free app (I guess they assume they'll make up the difference with the items that require real money). I picked the user name Minor Muppetz.
So far I've gotten Animal, Sam, and Rowlf. I think I'm on level five, though only Animal is above level 1 (I've got him to level 3).
You have to give four feedings to a Muppet to level them up. I always automatically bring them all up to level 4 when I get them all.
Funny thing..when I tried to use the word puppet in the name of my muppet group it told me to not use inappropriate language and to keep it classy
That is weird. I can't even get how that would make sense for them...
There's an episode of the Jim Henson Hour titled (IIRC) "Secrets of the Muppets" in which the camera pulls back, revealing the puppeteers, and the Muppets completely freak out. They can't stand the concept of being puppets. I believe Gonzo says not to use the P-word. Maybe that's where that came from.
Well I've got Animal, Rowlf, Sam, Floyd, Durwood Clapper, Harv-E (does he count as a character?), and now I'm digitizing some rats. Last night I was waiting for Harv-E to come up with someone to be digitized, and as I was waiting I found that I could buy Floyd.... Only for that to take a long time and when the Harv-E was ready to digitize someone it was unable to digitize until Floyd was ready.
And what's the deal with so many new characters in this? I'd rather see Lew Zeland, Crazy Harry, Lips, Thog, and others than new characters. In a way, it's like The Jim Henson Hour or Muppets Tonight, except that it has all of the main characters and most of the main supporting characters, but the fan favorites have been replaced with new characters. On Tough Pigs some have said that it's so if you have to make multiple characters you can do so with the new ones and not have to have multiple Kermits and so on (and to have some characters you want to sell). Which makes sense, but shouldn't that be taken care of with generic penguins, rats, chickens, frogs, pigs, and so on?
I wonder if all upcoming udates have been planned and designed in advance, or if they have to finish them and show them later. Could they add characters like Link Hogthrob and Sweetums (assuming they aren't already planned) after all the initial characters are included?
I got the archs backdrop. Has anybody who purchased a backdrop ever switched back to the bare wall or other backdrops? I would like to go back to the bare wall sometime, but don't know if it'll cost anything.
Wouldn't it be cool if there was a backdrop full of television monitors, so we could have a Jim Henson Hour-type stage?
I've noticed that pretty much all of the original characters are musicians or singers. With so many musical characters, it's a shame I haven't heard anything about whether Dr. Teeth or Janice are in the game (I figure they'll eventually be unlocked), not to mention Lips, Marvin Suggs and the Muppaphones, Bobby Benson and his baby band, Geri and the Atrics, and others.
I must say, I'm glad I've stuck with this game long enough to get Rizzo onstage, because his vocals are absolutely hilarious!
