V) Where to Find Collectables & What They Do

This section may be a little confusing.  Listen, first I will tell you the collectable, 
then where to go to get it, finally what the item does in the game.

-	Principal Skinner "Spanky's" Keys
-	Go to Moe's Tavern.  Click on the Bar.  Click on the pink box.  In there are keys 
        with a tag the says 'SPANKY.'  Click them and they are yours.
-	The keys allow you to go into Principal Skinner's office at the Springfield 
        Elementary School.

-	Bart's Map of the School
-	Go into the Simpson's house.  Then go into Bart's room.  Look under his bead.  
        Notice the piece of paper tucked in the top?  Get it!
-	This allows you to click those inaccessible lockers in the elementary school's 
        hallways.  You should go there.

-	Bart's Reminder
-	Go to the lockers, which you should now be able to open.  (If you got Bart's Map 
        of the School.)  Open the left locker.  On the door should be a pleasant reminder.  
        Why don't you go and take it.  Look around a little, oh, and don't forget to check 
        the right locker too.
-	You can now open the bottom drawer in the drawers in Grandpa's room at the 
        Springfield Retirement Castle.  Doesn't sound like much but you should go there.

-	StoneCutters' Ring
-	Go to the Springfield Retirement Castle.  (Make sure you got Bart's Reminder!)  
        Click on the drawer.  Open the bottom one, which couldn't be opened until now.  
        In there you'll see the StoneCutters' Ring.  Get it!
-	If you have gotten (in order) Bart's Map of the School, Bart's Reminder, and the 
        StoneCutters' Ring, you will now be able to enter the StoneCutter's lair.

-	Krusty's Keys
-	Go into the Town Hall.  Once you're in their click on Mayor Quimby's desk.  In the 
        middle drawer (hmm, the one with all the $money$ with it, yes, how interesting) 
        you'll see some keys pop out of the corner.  Grab 'em.
-	You now have access to Krusty's Dressing Room in Krustylu Studios.

-	StoneCutters' Book
-	Go to the StoneCutter's Lair.  Here you can find two things.  First, click on the 
        desk thing where Homer is.  You get a more zoomed in view.  See that green book?  
        Grab it and keep it!
-	If you go into the Flander's house, the Devil will possess Rod and Todd. Thanks to 
        [email protected] & [email protected]

-	Monty Burns' Keys
-	Still in the StoneCutters' Lair?  If not go there and zoom in on the desk thing 
        Homer is on.  Click the desk a second time for another zoomed in view.  You should 
        see a case on the shelf.  In there you'll find Monty Burns' Keys.  And of course, 
        get 'em!
-	You now have full permission to enter the washroom from Monty Burns' office.

-	Map of Lisa's Classroom
-	Go into Lisa's classroom in Springfield Elementary.  In there click on Miss 
        Hoover's desk.  Open the top right drawer.  Get the piece of paper in there and 
        it's yours!
-	This allows you to go into Miss Hoover's bottom right hand drawer. (hint* hint*)

-	Gerbil Food
-	Go into Miss Hoover's room at the Springfield Elementary and click on her desk.  
        If you got the Map of Lisa's Classroom (above) you can open the bottom right had 
        drawer.  Open it and grab the gerbil food.
-	Once you grab this, you can zoom into the gerbil area in the same room.  
        (Not really that exciting)

-	A Poem
-	Go into the Simpson's house and then in Marge & Homer's Bedroom.  
        Click on the drawer closest to you to zoom in.  Open the right side.  Pick up 
        the "Be-Sharps so that you can see better.  Under the Butterfinger rapper is a 
        piece of paper, that's the poem. Thanks to [email protected] and many others.
-	The poem allows you to click on the lever at Sector 7G in the Nuclear Power 
        Plant.  You have to be able to pull on the lever to play the Donut Toss Game. 
        (see Mini Games)


VI) Mini Games

This section talks about all the mini games.  First will be the game name, then where to 
find it, and finally special information about the game.

-	Apoom
-	Go to the Kwik-E-Mart.  Once inside, click on the door behind Apu and get ready to 
-	In here you try to kill the bullies.  You have three weapons, a broom, a shotgun, 
        and a 'kill gun'.  The only one that actually kills them is the 'kill gun'.    
        You can change weapons by hitting the keypad,   [1]= Broom   [2]= Shotgun 	
        [3]= 'kill gun'   you can also hit the corresponding number on the screen.  

-	Donut Toss
-	Go to the power plant.  Go into Sector 7G.  Click on the handle. (Note: must have 
        gotten the Poem.)  Click on the rope that falls down.  Click on the light that pops 
        out.  Finally click on the donuts.  Play away!
-	All you really do is through the donuts at Homer's station and explode it.

-	Slingshot Game
-	Go into the Simpson's House.  Go into Bart's Room.  Click on his desk.  Open the 
        drawer farthest to the left.  Grab the slingshot to play!
-	You get 25 shots.  Aim and shoot at the picture of Sideshow Bob.

-	Balloon Toss
-	Go into the Simpson's House.  Go to the back yard.  Go up the tree house.  Grab a 
        water balloon and play!
-	Aim at the people (and things!) and drop a water balloon.  Some hits have 
        interesting reactions.

-	Bar Game
-	Go into the Flanders' House.  (No not Moe's Bar!)  Click on the bar.  Then click on 
        the Holy Water and begin!
-	Shake the Holy Water and spray the items on Flanders' shelves.  You have to shake 
        the water or else nothing happens, check this out:
        0 shakes - Gets you NOTHING!
        1 shake - Sprays, but doesn't get you to the bar.
        2 shakes - Is a bottom row hit!
        3 shakes - Is a top row hit!

-	Bear Cracker Toss
-	(Note: this isn't really a mini game, but I consider it one.)  Go into the Aztec 
        Theatre.  Click on the red box that has the yellow bear on it, it's in the trash.
-	Now you have a cracker.  Just click on it to toss it into the audience.  It will 
        randomly hit someone and they will react to it.


VII) Noiseland Arcade

As you know, Noiseland Arcade has four more mini games that you can play.  This is a 
run-through of them.

-	Larry the Looter
-	Okay, this game is just completely impossible.  No matter what, once you steal the 
        three items, you'll get your head blown of by that dude.  No hint, no tips, it's 
        just an impossible game.

-	Smite of the Bumblebee
-	The object is self-explanatory.  Just throw the tomatoes at Bumblebee Man and kill 
        him.  It takes three hits to kill.  A tip would be to get the hand ahead of 
        Bumblebee Man and then throw the tomato.  It makes the game a little simpler.  
        See if you can get a 3 out of 3.

-	Krusty's Carnival of Kash
-	This game is tough.  Your have 4 tries.  What you have to do is drop the coin in 
        Krusty's mouth.  There's not really any tips, its just timing that's the key.  
        Try to get a 4 out of 4; it's not as easy as you think.

-	Super Slugfest
-	Possibly the most fun game Noiseland has, a boxing game.  And if it isn't obvious, 
        the object is to knock the other player down.  You can be either player one or 
        player two.  They both have different controls, here the are:

Player 1 (red trunks)
Main Buttons:      		A, S, D, Z, X
Uppercut:			X, X, W
Punch around the ring:	        X, D, A,
Special:     			D, (wait) D (wait) Z

Player 2 (purple trunks)
Main Buttons:			8, 4, 5, 6, 0, 2
Uppercut:			2, 2, 8
Punch around the ring:	        2, 6, 4
Special:			6, (wait) 6, (wait) 0

Note: Special can only be done when opponent is on last four bars in health


VII) All 75 Cards!

Ok, there is a rare set of Springfield Community Cards lurking around Springfield.  Your 
job is to collect all 75.  You start out with number 1, the title card, then once you 
collect the other 73, you atomically the 75th card.  Sound easy?  There is about one card 
in each of the 17 places to visit.  BUT NOT IN EVERY PLACE!  But there is a little catch 
that makes things easier.  Lets say I collect the card under the foot of Maggie's crib, 
(*hint, *hint) if I leave the Simpson's house and come back later, there will be another 
card there!!!  This doesn't work with all places though.  Later I hope to put up a list of

found.  But until then, HAPPY HUNTIN'!

Bad news!  There is only 1 cheat/code.  But the good news is that it is very useful.  Here 
it is:
?	Location Select:
?	When you are playing get out the map.  Hold SHIFT + V + S, (to remember it, just 
        remember ALT, plus the first letter of Virtual and Springfield) then double-click

        very useful when you want to go to, oh let's say, Krustylu Studios from, oh, the 
        Power Plant.
