Table of Contents
Fulfill demands of Tom and his friends to complete activities. Tap on the speech bubble that appears above a character.
You will find different icons in each speech bubble. These icons pertain to a particular activity. Tap on an icon and the character will move closer to an object that’s connected with that activity. Tap on the object or drag and drop the character onto the object to start an activity.
For example, if you tap on the spoon and fork icon above Angela, it means she is hungry. Just tap on it and she will be on the dining table. Now tap on the spoon and fork icon above the food bowl and drag and drop delish food items to feed her.
When Tom and his friends perform certain activities, such as playing a sport, conversing with a friend, playing an indoor game, singing etc. You will get bus tokens and stars upon completion. Just tap and hold a character and drag him/her towards a toy or a certain object to begin performing an activity.
When an activity ends, rewards appear inside transparent bubbles. Tap on bubbles to collect your rewards.
Stars fill the star meter (more on this later) and bus tokens are used to fill the bus stop sign board located on the street.
When the sign board fills up, just drag one of the characters onto the bus. You will be taken to a trip to the nearby supermarket, where you can get lots of goody bags that may contain toys/games and costumes. You may also obtain important items, such as healing items for the medicine cabinet and food.
The above basic guide is for those who have just started playing My Talking Tom Friends game on their Android devices. Read on for more tips and tricks to get rewards:
Activities that Grant Rewards
There are two kinds of activities – Basic and fun. The latter lets you play with toys, games and engage in various hobbies such as singing and playing the electric guitar. Activity icons appears as speech bubbles above a character.
Completing the following basic activities doesn’t grant rewards:
– Eating food (Appears as fork and spoon in the speech bubble above a character)
– Going to the Loo (Flush toilet)
– Taking medicines (Big Plus sign)
– Bathing in the bath tub (Shower)
– Sleeping (Crescent Moon)
However, you will have to complete the above tasks (in case they appear as speech bubbles above a character) if you want Tom and his buddies to perform other tasks. You just can’t drag a character to a toy or game if he/she demands food or wants to go to the loo. They will flat-out refuse to perform any other task until you have completed their basic tasks as shown on their speech bubbles.
Any speech bubble that does not have the above basic activity icons grant some kind of a rewards, such as stars or bus tokens.
A speech bubble above a character can have a guitar icon, a board game icon, washing machine, bath tub, teddy bear etc. All these activities grant some kind of reward after completion. You just have to tap on such an icon to move your character closer to that object and then drag and drop that character over the object to start the activity.
Fill the Star Progress Meter to get Goodie Bags
In My Talking Tom Friends game, you can earn stars by completing non-basic activities. Read the above paragraph to get a list of basic and non-basic tasks.
You earn a star after completing a fun task, such as playing an indoor game, using the mic, playing soccer (a soccer ball appears above a character), skateboarding etc.
When a task is completed, a star appears inside a transparent speech bubble above a character. Tap on it to collect it.
Stars fill the star progress meter. Tap on the green chalkboard in the living room to access star meters of each character. The green board is located just beside the smart TV.
You will notice certain icons above stars. These icons also appear beside the green completion bar above a character when he/she performs a non-basic activity. There are six icons or categories as shown in the above screenshot:
– Jigsaw puzzle (Indoor sport such as snakes and ladders board game)
– Soccer ball (outdoor sport such as soccer, skateboarding)
– Trowel (gardening, cooking)
– Kitty Faces (chatting with a fellow character)
– Art palette and paintbrush (hobbies such as singing, playing the guitar etc.)
Complete a task that belongs to one of the above categories to earn star tokens. These tokens fill a star meter on the green chalkboard. If Tom completes a task, it will fill his star progress meter. If Angela completes a task, her star will be filled.
When a star is full, you will receive a goodie bag. Make sure you change characters from the bottom-left corner of the screen to check their progress. Each character has a different star progress bar, so make sure you check a character’s star progress and complete an activity which is linked to a category to get stars.
Example: If there’s a speech bubble with a skateboard above Tom, it means that Tom wants to play with the skateboard. Drag him to the skateboard or just tap on the skateboard icon and then drag him over the toy.
While he is playing with it, you will notice a tiny soccer ball icon beside the green completion bar above him. This means that the skateboard belongs to the soccer ball category or outdoor sport category. When the task finishes, the star tokens you will receive will fill up the star meter under the soccer ball icon on the green board. Keep playing with the skateboard to receive more tokens until the star fills up.
When one star out of the three stars under the soccer ball icon fills up, you will receive a goodie bag. Tap on the bag to get your rewards. The goodie bag contains coins, 500 bus tokens and an item. The item will be used to complete a basic/fun activity.
