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! ________________________________________________________________________ ________________ _/Controls & Story\_____________________________________________________ Analog Stick: Steering X: Stop/Reverse D.

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. ________________________________________________________________________ ___________________ _/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. 02: Homer On The Run Drive as Bart, sneeking Homer back to work at the Power Plant.
