_/Version History\______________________________________________________ 
  I began work on this on 12/07/01, even though the release date for the 
game is late December here in North America. 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.

_/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!

nuclear buses. The citizens of Springfield must now taxi each other 
around to raise the $1,000,000 needed to buy it back! Good luck!

_/Modes of Play\________________________________________________________   
ROAD RAGE: 
Mmm... road rage. 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.

_/Road Rage 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.
