Spooktown's Tricks and Treats

Posted by Sir Max on October 28, 2016 at 2:00 PM

Ah, what a wonderful week! Just take a moment to step outside and smell the dead flowers, swarming bats, and observe that truly beautiful gloom that's covering the whole town. It's that time of year again: Time for the Spooktown Curse!



I've decided that this year, instead of being fearful of the scares and spooks that I may or may not have brought upon us those many years ago, it's best just to embrace it. It's just like what they always say: "If you can't beat the curse, give up and give in to your new lifestyle!" I mean, they probably say that. I think I read it in a magazine once. Might be paraphrasing.

Let me give you a rundown of what this curse actually entails:

  • As if our decorations weren't spooky enough, the sky has gone into full gloom from the curse. (I say we just pretend it's part of the decorations.)
  • This funny wizard guy named Jack O' Kazam has spread mysterious bags all around Toontown. Something about jellybeans and potential of some sort of trick that'll affect your friends too. The risk is worth it for some extra beans, right?
  • Every Toon who hits all of the Toontown Trick or Treat hot spots listed in our riddle will be cursed with a very stylish Pumpkin Head!


See? Spooky stuff can be fun. It's all about what you make of it! I bet that Jack O' Kazam guy isn't even a real wizard and has just been duping us year after year. My money says he's a weatherman. Besides, no one has even seen him around this year.

I bet that means he's calling off the curse for next year. I mean, it's not like he's going into hiding so he can cook up something even worse for the future... Right?

October 28, 2016 [ttr-beta-v1.13.0 (patch)]

Features:
• Halloween is upon us! The Spooktown Curse has returned, giving Toons who get treats a little trick as well until November 1st.

• Spooky Bean Bags are scattered throughout the town. Pick one up to get a spooky spell, but beware -- the results are not always quite as sweet as candy!

Tweaks:
• Macs now display a warning about the audio bug. A fix for this crash is in the works!

Bugfixes:
• ToonFest Fireworks now spawn correctly.

Love Trick and Treating in TTR. Though the pumpkin head curse is still huffing and puffing when we run, lol. Love the decorations and the seasonal gloom!

Awesome! Can't wait to spook some of the toons of toontown.... errr... Spooktown? Either way, Happy Halloween!!! Also, hope the pumpkin heads dont do same as last year (as well as the snowman heads). They kept going poof! when you walked on the streets over and over.

Wizards can be a trick or a treat! Be careful with those bags toons!

Sir Trickalot said on October 29, 2016 at 6:44 AM
If he hasn't been heard of yet, I bet Jack O' Kazam is cooking up something horrible for us.... Anyway, Happy Halloween all!

Barney Wondersnout said on October 29, 2016 at 7:28 AM
I really like the pumpkin head it looks cool. But, yeah... what about that Jack 'o' whatshisname? He must've gone into hiding.... he could even be behind you!

Toon said on October 29, 2016 at 8:17 AM
Don't be too sure, Sir Max... especially with ToonFest running with Spooktown, Jack O' Kazam's probably gonna cook up something spooky new ideas to respond to it.

Flappy Mcpow said on October 29, 2016 at 9:17 AM
I think this year I'm gonna be a little more safer and not go trick or treating at EVERY shop. That last year was the last time I get a pumpkin on my head. But it's worst during the winter. Yeesh! Don't even get me STARTED on those snowmen heads!

Cool Pinky said on October 29, 2016 at 9:25 AM
Happy Halloween Toontown! Spooktown is back! :D

Midnight Blossom said on October 29, 2016 at 10:22 AM

Cool Rosie Hulasocks said on October 29, 2016 at 10:23 PM
Woah last time i ever trust a wizard for real!

Funky Barnaclepoof said on October 30, 2016 at 12:43 PM
That is very spooky, maybe it's time to stop worrying too much about the cogs and relax with some jellybeans.

Maximum Slider said on October 30, 2016 at 1:35 PM

I found a spooky bean bag! I can't believe it. I missed Halloween last year so I made sure to make time this year. I am so glad I did. The spooky bean bag gave me a Halloween unite that turned me and a group of toons invisible for a little while. What a great trick or treat! Thanks TTR gang for all the hard work you are doing!
