Introduction Lets be honest here, there's never been a half-way decent Simpsons game on a home console... until now. Although it may have got reasonably harsh criticism from the so-called experts, to a Simpsons nut, this game is everything they could have ever asked for. Its blindly obvious that the developers were very much aware of the Simpsons world when they made this game, which gives the game a good lot of depth in the different locations you will come across. Sure, the absence of some peoples favorite character may annoy them, but think of how many characters there are in Springfield. It would take a year just to put them all in. Lets be happy with what we have, and hope that the Simpsons Skateboarding lives up to the now higher expectations. Anyway, that's enough, time to get on with the FAQ. 2. LOCATIONS The many locations of Springfield are split into 6 sections. Below is a list of all the different locations in each level. I have intentionally left out the unimportant throw away buildings, which repeat in a number of levels, for example the RX drugs shop. Anywho, If you know of anywhere I have left out, feel free to e-mail me at [email protected], and I'll gladly add it in the next update, with full credit to you. 2.1 Evergreen Terrace The first level you are given access to in Evergreen Terrace. This is essentially a warm-up level to get some practice in. Its an alright level, but not particularly big, and there isn't much to see. Still, it gets a solid 3/5. Barriers of the Level To prevent you from going to the next level, there are different types of barriers in your way, in Evergreen Terrace, there is a wall made of rubbish, similar to the one in "A Tale of Two Springfields" Sight-seers guide The Presidents Mansion Flanders house Burlesque house Kwik E Mart Java The Hut Patty and Selma's Principal Skinners house Jittery Joes Coffee Shop Joes Garage Springfield Elementary Willie's shack Lullabuy Water Hole 1st Church of Springfield Springfield Retirement Castle Krusty Burger Springfield Grocery Store Gas station Waylon Smithers apartment Krabappels apartment Baby Sitters Wiggum's house Lovejoys house Molemans house 2.2 Entertainment District The second level features many well-known locations from the show, including Moe's Tavern and Noiseland arcade, as well as shops only die-hard Simpsons fans would remember. This level gets a 4/5 from me Barriers of the Level There are "Road Closed" barriers, nothing too special Sight-seers guide Moe's Tavern King Toots Krusty Burger Googolplex Java the Hut Gas Station The Duff Brewery Duff Blimp Chez Guevara Placio de Dansa Cubana Barneys Bowlarama Nails 4 U Springfield Pet Shop Royal Majesty "for the obese or gangly gentleman" Taxidermy by Cletus Grandmas World Big Bad Brians Bagels Mellow Vibes Tea The Lucky Stiff Funeral Home Spuds Irish Cuisine The Lawn Depot Fancy Tire Princess Opal Potions, Hexes and Fax Machine Merry Widow Insurance Co.

Butterfat Ice Cream Parlor Big T Burgers and Fries Noiseland Arcade Tattoo Parlor 2.3 Springfield Dam The Dam is home to all of the out of town places the Simpson Family have visited in the past, like Kamp Krusty and Rancho Relaxo. A fairly good level, although initially hard to navigate. 3/5 Barriers of the Level There are two lorrys blocking the road, one of which is a Duff lorry Sight-seers guide Stonecutters HQ Jittery Joes K- Radio Workers Shack Interesting Home Rancho Relaxo Quimby's Mansion Kamp Krusty TNT Storage 2.4 Springfield Nuclear Power Plant Springfield Nuclear is in my opinion a very bitty level. The only main attractions are the Plant and the Springfield Mall. Still, spotting all the familiar shop names in the mall is interesting, but overall, the level is a non- event. 2/5 Barriers of the Level Again, just a lorry Sight-seers guide Gas Station Lard Lad Donuts Springfield Nuclear Power Plant Baseball Diamond Springfield Community Center Springfield Mall House of Hammers Granny's Burgers Blotto Gelato Happy Market Worthless Junk Under a Buck All Things Swedish Cost - Mo The Vast Waistband Philips Glass Emporium Shaylas Toys Ransom Notes Malaria Zone Greasy Hut Its a Wonderful Knife Nicks Bowling Shop All Creatures Great and Cheap The Left Banque Dr Nick Rivieras Clinic The Modest Tea Co. The Leftorium House of No Refunds Shop Popular Books Canyon of The Dolls Plundering Petes Thongs 4 U The Eye and Toe Piercery Try 'N Save Plant Run Off Stream Sticky Lube 2.5 Downtown Personally, this is my favourite level. Its a sightseers dream, with many great references to "Marge Vs The Monorail" like the remains of the short lived Monorail, as well as giant Simpson family balloons hanging from the Sky. A definite 5/5 for this massive level Barriers of the Level Hehe, there's a fallen over sugar lorry blocking downtown. "If food stuffs should touch the ground, said food stuffs shall be turned over to the village idiot." Since i don't see him around, start shoveling!

An ok level, and being able to drive through Mr Burns estate is a nice touch. 3/5 Barriers of the Level Blocking off this level are rocks and trees, and a turned over lorry, carrying trees.
