I began work so early because of my unsettling anticipation for the game. Well, thanks to that I got most all of the not so important stuff out of the way so that on release day I was able to write the core walkthrough with little distraction. I had gotten a lot of the information from the Playstation 2 version such as the playable characters list. 12/07/01 - Pre-release version, worked out the ASCII contents listing, design, and cast list. Later added Drivers and Vehicles list as well as some passengers. 01/07/02 - Added introduction, FAQs, modes, extras, some tips, missions, and some other small changes. Finally released it. 01/11/02 - Added sub-sections to the Road Rage chapter. Also added some information on the missions. Hopefully next update will have a walkthrough for each one, or at least some. Oh yeah, I also added in a bit about the Head to Head mode of play, I can't believe I forgot that! 01/14/02 - Huge breakthrough this weekend. Me and my friends discovered 12 new cheat codes this weekend! We heard a rumor about one code for the PS2 version and we tried about a million things and finally founds some, then some more, then some more! Look in chapter XII. Extras & Goodies for the complete list. 01/28/02 - Added another 2 codes, as well as some more information on the missions. New chapter added as well, Chapter XI. is for Routes and Shortcuts. I will try to be as in depth as I can. This guide is still nowhere near where I want it to be. ________________________________________________________________________ ____________ _/Introduction\_________________________________________________________ It seems throughout the years The Simpsons license has been attached to some pretty bad games. In the early days on the NES we had some fun with Bart Vs. The Space Mutants, but then Bart Meets Radioactive Man was terribly dissapointing. Bart Vs. The World wasn't so bad, but it just didn't seem to fill up my expectations cup. The Nintendo Gameboy had many uncomfortable Simpsons ventures as well, that I'd rather not go into, it's just too painful. When other systems came out, so did the games, such as Virtual Bart, and Bart's Nightmare. I think it would be safe to say that 'Nightmare' would be fitting for both titles, which are nothing more than a collection of near impossible mini-games. There was one beautiful ray of light that burst through the cloud of bad games, and that was simply titled The Simpsons. It was an arcade release, and sadly, it was never ported. Still, with the splendor of this game, I grew new hope for America's Favorite Family in the world of video games. A hope that I wouldn't let be burst by the fun, yet horribly short romp through Simpson's Wrestling. I knew The Simpsons would prevail, and unleash an entertaining hit for a console, and with this title, I am glad to report I will be enjoying my Simpsons gaming desires at home, not at the arcade! ________________________________________________________________________ ________________ _/Controls & Story\_____________________________________________________ Analog Stick: Steering X: Stop/Reverse D.

Good luck! ________________________________________________________________________ ________ _/The Cast\_____________________________________________________________ No, they're not all playable, just those who appear in the game, full names included.

Here we have our main course. The mission, raise one million dollars to buy the public transportation system back from C.M. Burns. Taxi people around to make the money, but don't worry... it will take you plenty of time to do this. You also get to unlock more areas and drivers. SUNDAY DRIVE: You cannot earn money, or unlock areas in this mode. But you can drive around and learn the areas finding shortcuts, hidden routes, and the such. Doing this may help you out significantly in Road Rage mode. You know what they say... practice makes perfect. CHALLENGE MODE: 10 missions, with different drivers. Once you complete them all you get the reward of The Homer. See "Extras & Goodies" section for more on this vehicle. HEAD TO HEAD: Set the goal of $5,000, $10,000, or $15,000 in this split screen race for fares. You and a friend will race for a passenger. Passengers can be stolen from one another by ramming your opponent. He who delivers the passenger gets the full fare. ________________________________________________________________________ _________ _/Road Rage\____________________________________________________________ [A. Hints] There's more than meets the eye. Look for paths not shown on the map for some handy short cuts that will raise your fares and help with the time. Take out Burns' bus stop vestibules to add 2 seconds to your time. Learn your pickups. More often then not, passengers at the same location want to go to the same destination. Learn where they want to go for some big money fares. Although it's fun to try out the new characters, don't forget that unlocking new locations can mean bigger fares. Use the handbrake with the gas while turning to make fast, sharp turns, or to turn around 180 degrees in a rush. Or get Homer and have some fun making donuts on Flanders lawn. Tire marks on the grass (not left by you) usually indicate a shortcut! [B. Road Rage/Safe Trips] Occasionally a passenger will request one of two things: "Avoid traffic for bonus" (Safe Trip) or "Destroy stuff for bonus" (Road Rage) Safe Trip: Make it to the destination hitting no more than 2 cars and you will get a $250 bonus plus 5 seconds, regardless of your trip timer! Road Rage: Destroy 16 things (mail boxes, trees, lamp posts, etc) before the destination to get a $1,000 bonus plus 5 seconds, regardless of your trip timer! [C. Rating System] After each round you are rated by how much money you earned. The rating system is based on the following chart: $0 Loser $1 - $999 Grandma $1,000 - $2,999 Timid $3,000 - $4,999 Destructive $5,000 - $6,999 Reckless $7,000 - $9,999 Insane $10,000 - $12,499 Speed Freak $12,500 - $14,999 Gazelle $15,000+ Madman [D. Trip Timer] Each passenger has a set amount of time to get to his/her location. This is indicated in the Trip Timer. You will recieve a rating and possibly a tip depending on how much time is left on the trip timer. SLOW 0% to 20% of the trip timer left, No reward NORMAL From 21% up to 35% of the trip timer left, Reward of 1 second FAST 36% or better left on the trip timer, Reward of 3 seconds [E. Progress] Throughout the game, you have goals set. When you reach each goal you can unlock your choice of another driver, or another location. You start off with 5 of 17 drivers, and 1 of 6 locations. To unlock your reward you must meet your goal. Goals are set at: $1K, $10K, $30K, $50K, $75K, $100K, $125K, $150K, $200K, $250K, $300K, then in $100K incriments until you reach the final goal of $1,000,000. ________________________________________________________________________ ___________________ _/Mission Walkthrough\__________________________________________________ 01: Willies Paper Shredder Guide Willie through the streets of Springfield to take out all of the 'Springfield Shopper' Newspaper stands you can find.

I will try to be as in depth as I can. Evergreen Terrace: Information coming soon. Entertainment District: Information coming soon. Springfield Dam: ROUTE: At the start of the level, drive over to the far right and make your first pickup. They should want to go the Jittery Joes, otherwise you got the wrong one. Now, go up the road a bit and make cut left underneath the billboard to go up a hill. At the top you will want to go left to the dropoff. Pickup the nearest passenger (if you stopped right they should just get in.) They will either want to go to the dam (cont. A), the home for the interesting (cont. B), or kamp krusty (cont. C.) So head up the hill from Jittery Joe's and then cut right at the fork and... GOTO CONT. A, B, or C. CONT. A: After you stop at the dam, pick up the nearest passenger, they will want to go to Rancho Relaxo, so turn left off of the dam and into the water. Now go up the hill on the left and into the dropoff, make sure to spin out so you are facing the exit. GOTO CONT. D. CONT. B: Drive to the end of the dam, and make the dropoff. Pick up the person standing on the corner, they will want to go the Builders Shack, so make a fast U-turn and head back across the dam, and make sure to go RIGHT at the fork, up the hill and to the dropoff. Pick up the nearest passenger who will want to go to Rancho Relaxo. So back down the hill and once on the dam, drive off to the left, and into the water. Now take the hill on the left up and into the dropoff, make sure to spin out so you are facing the exit. GOTO CONT. D. CONT. C: Drive across the dam and make a sharp right and pull up to the dropoff. Now make a quick U-turn and pick up the person on the corner near the dam. They will want to go to the Builders Shack, so go across the dam, and make sure to go RIGHT at the fork, up the hill and to the dropoff. Pick up the nearest passenger who will want to go to Rancho Relaxo. So back down the hill and once on the dam, drive off to the left, and into the water. Now take the hill on the left up and into the dropoff, make sure to spin out so you are facing the exit. GOTO CONT. D. CONT. D: Drive out and pickup the passenger on your RIGHT. They will want to go to TNT Storage, so now, turn a sharp left and back into the water. Drive UP the dam, diagonally toward the right, when on top, make sure to take the LEFT fork for the dropoff. The next passenger should just get right in. They will want to go to the Stonecutters Lodge, so from here continue up the road and it will merge into another road at the top of the hill. Go around a few turns and after you pass Jittery Joes (on your left) you will make a right, but just keep going straight heading toward the billboard and you will probably take a huge drop (unless you go slow enough to go down the hill) now just continue down the road 'til you get to the lodge. Pull into the driveway so it's easier to pickup your next passenger, who is the same one as the first. Now just continue with this route until you run out of time. Nuclear Power Plant: Information coming soon. Downtown: Information coming soon. Springfield Mountains: Information coming soon. ________________________________________________________________________ ________________ _/Extras & Goodies\_____________________________________________________ Holiday Characters: Set your Game Cube's internal clock to the following dates to unlock Holiday Characters!

A:Check the drivers list. Q:Is ______ in the game? A:Check the cast list. Most of them are also passengers, but not all so, compare the cast list to the passenger list to see who you can't pick up. Q:How do I unlock the "?" character? A:See Extras & Goodies section- Holiday Characters. Q:What is the difference between the easy/medium/hard settings? A:The easier the setting, the more time you get. BUT, the harder the setting, the more money you earn per person. Q:I'm stuck on _______ mission, can you help me? A:See the mission walkthrough section. Q:Are there any cheat codes? A:YES! 13 to be exact. These were actually discovered by me and my friends. I heard a rumor about a camera angle cheat for the ps2 version, that had something to do with the shoulder buttons, so I figured we could mess around with that and we started getting sounds. Just took a while before some things started happening such as nighttime mode, and driving as Smithers. ________________________________________________________________________ _______ _/Credits\______________________________________________________________ All names, companies, and products are trademark and/or copywritten property of their parent companies.
