a non tappable Grem-Alien?

Had it happen last night. Cleared everything else out, closed out and opened Tapped Out again. Got the little bugger that time.

    Both of these glitches have happened to me at least four times, including twice just this morning. Three times a gremalien just sat there and was untappable, and one time I chased one until he disappeared. If I exit the game and restart, the one just sitting there is gone.

    I don't think you have to restart the game. Just head over to your Krustyland or a neighbor and come back. That should re-synchronize your game.

    Good to know.
    glad its not just me. It was just really frustrating tapping the crap out of it, and getting nothing lol.
    thanks all

    I have chased a speedy little bugger around tapping madly at him and he seemed to dissapear, but I figured out that this little guy was running to attack a character. It appears that some of these face huggers will run at high speed across half of your town to attack someone, and while they are running, you can't pop them.

    I had this happen several times. Once I kept chasing it, it finally latched onto a face. Then I could tap it. It looked different than the regular aliens, I don't think it was a regular grem alien, although I thought it was when I was chasing it.

    I had two sitting there next to eachother just now. Drooling, glaring, and hyperventilating.

    It has happened to me twice so far. The second time I noticed it was when I tapped a gremalien and a rigelian at the same time. Since then I've been careful not to tap a gremalien if he's overlapping a rigelian and it hasn't happened again so far.

    Yeah this has happened to me a few times now too, it leads to copious amounts of vulgarity.

    I've had this happen as well and I think I have figured out when it happens. I notice that this only happens when the grem-alien is touched by the shockwave caused by tapping a rigellian. I haven't had a grem-alien freeze on me since I've been careful to tap him only when there are no rigellians nearby.

    Edit: Just realized HQmer beat me to it :D
