For expected updates see the FAQ Plans section. 2.0 - 12/7/03 - Made BIG changes today Updated the art at the top and added the Playable Characters And Vehicles section. 3.0 - 15/12/06 - This will probably be the final update to this guide. I have done some formatting but I've changed not a word of the content. Added new and more basic section headers. File Size is around 74kb. Final- 21/02/08 - Removed ASCII at top of guide. Remove the "Vehicles" section of the guide as it didn't really serve a purpose. This is the final update without question. This update is basically to update the guide and remove the unneeded bits. I've also spell-check this as I was possibly the most mis-spelled document ever. File size is 53kbs. ============================================================================ =2= INTRODUCTION ============================================================================ Hello and welcome to my Simpsons Road Rage FAQ. This was a difficult guide to compile, the game doesn't really lend itself to a solid walkthrough-type guide. However, it is now complete in its entirety and there will be no further updates. Thanks a lot to all whole take the time to read this FAQ. This guide contains near everything that you will need to know about this game. For this reason I won't be taking contributions or answering queries by email. ============================================================================ =3= STORY ============================================================================ Springfield. City on the move- or is it? This once-bustling borough has been brought to a stand-still by the malignant magnate C. Montgomery Burns. The man who owns the nuclear power plant has bought out the Springfield Transit Corporation and is sapping the wallet of every Johnny Commuter and Janie Buspass in this fair town. The dastardly devil has even converted the buses to nuclear power and has given his drivers free reign to wreak havoc on this hamlets otherwise sleepy streets. But look out, Mr. Burns- the good people of Springfield are rising up to take on your transportation tyranny. They're arming themselves with their cars and are braving the bumper-to-bumper mayhem to provide a shuttle service for the stranded citizenry. Will these chivalrous chauffeurs, these vigilante valets bring down Montgomery's mass transport monopoly, or will evil keep it's grip on the wheel? Only time will tell. ============================================================================ =4= GAME BASIC ============================================================================ =-=-=-=-=-=-=-= GAME CONTROLS =-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Accelerate..............X button or Right analog stick up Stop/Reverse............................................O Steering.......................D-Pad or Left analog stick Handbrake....................................Square or R2 Horn.......................................Triangle or L1 Look Back..............................................L2 Reset Vehicle......................................Select Pause Game...................................Start Button =-=-=-=-=-=-= GAME SCREEN =-=-=-=-=-=-= This is the screen on which you play the game. I will explain the different sections to you. In the top left hand corner, in yellow is the game time remaining. When this has expired, you will get the 'end of game' screen. Below the game time is the money which you have earned so far. Next to both of these is the 'trip timer'. When this expires, your current fare will leave the vehicle. A constant sound will be heard when you have only 10 seconds left. A hand is in the top center of the screen. This hand points in the direction you need to go to deliver your current fare. When you get more experienced with the game, you find yourself using this less and less. In the top right hand corner is your Road Rage/Safe Trip status. In the bottom left is the town map. Find your way around using this. =-=-=-=-=-=-=- PAUSE SCREEN =-=-=-=-=-=-=- In the pause screen, there are many options. Select continue to resume the game. Select Sound Settings to adjust your music, SFX and dialog volumes. You can also select your preferred camera angle, turn the vibration on/off, restart your current run or quit to the main menu. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- GETTING A FARE =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- To get a fare, stop inside the flashing blue rings around a character. They will get in and tell you where they want to go, and you must get them to their destination before the 'trip timer' expires. The destination area is marked with golden lights. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- EARNING EXTRA TIME AND MONEY =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- There are many different ways to earn money and extra time. Here are the ways to do so- * Every second of a trip is worth about $10 * Every second left on the 'trip timer', when a fare is complete earns you bonus cash. * If you fail to get a passenger to their destination on time, you still keep the cash earned from that trip so far. * You can earn extra time and money for the speed of a trip. The tip boundaries are- Slow Trip- Between 0% and 20% of trip timer left= +$25 +0 seconds Normal Trip- Between 21% and 35% of time timer left= +$50 + 1 second Fast Trip- 36%+ of trip timer left= +$100 +3 seconds * If you crash into the green 'Burns Transit Bus Stops', you will receive +2 seconds. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- ROAD RAGE AND SAFE TRIPS =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- You can also earn extra money by the way of Road Rage or Safe Trip. If a white sign saying 'Avoid traffic for bonus' appears when you pick up a passenger, you can earn a 'Safe Trip' bonus. Simply hit less than 3 vehicles on your trip to earn the bonus. When you get to the destination, you will receive the bonus which is +$250 and +5 seconds. If a red sign 'Destroy stuff for bonus' appears, when you pick up a passenger, then you can earn a 'Road Rage' bonus. Destroy the number of listed objects, before the end of the trip. If you do this, the Road Rage bonus is +$1000 and +5 seconds. Here is a list of destroyable objects- Trees, lamp posts, mail boxes, fire hydrants, road signs, fences, bus stops, barrels, barriers, boxes, telephone boxes, tyres, fruit stalls, small huts, benches, chairs, gnomes, statues, gravestones. ============================================================================ =5A= MAIN MENU ============================================================================ There are 5 options in the main menu, they are- =-=-=-=-=-= ROAD RAGE =-=-=-=-=-= Beat the clock to deliver passengers, make money and earn rewards. =-=-=-=-=-=-=- SUNDAY DRIVE -=-=-=-=-=-=-= Explore Springfield at your own pace. =-=-=-=-=-=-= MISSON MODE -=-=-=-=-=-=- Help your favourite characters achieve their goals before time runs out. =-=-=-=-=-=-=- HEAD TO HEAD -=-=-=-=-=-=-= Compete head to head to deliver passengers to their destinations. =-=-=-=-= OPTIONS =-=-=-=-= Load saved games, choose skill level, configure controller and other options. ============================================================================ =6A= ROAD RAGE MODE ============================================================================ Select 'Road Rage' and you will be asked to select a driver.

It has all the ingredients for good, wholesome family living: Springfield Elementary School, Springfield Community Church and Springfield Retirement Castle.

Thanks to Bart, Lisa and his own brother Sideshow Bob, he failed- but the flimsy dam collapsed anyway. The hearty people of Springfield rallied, and the new dam stands as a symbol of the towns pride and resilience. take some time to explore it and it's scenic environs, including Mayor Quimby's Mansion, Kamp Krusty and Rancho Relaxo.

That tingling in your bones? Well yes, that's partly because of the radiation, but mainly because you're in Burn's territory now! The Springfield Nuclear Power Plant dominates the landscape here, from It's main office to it's giant turbines, to the cut-off valve that Homer plugged with his ample frame, thus averting a nuclear meltdown. And then there's the fuel rod and nuclear waste storage areas. Is it me or does the Springfield Isotopes baseball field (property of C. Montgomery Burns) seem to be just a bit to green? =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- PLACES OF INTEREST -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Main Gate, Turbines, Cut-Off Valve, Run-Off Stream, Emergency Generator, Leftorium, Baseball Diamond, Community Centre, Springfield Mall. ============================================================================ =6F= DOWNTOWN ============================================================================ =-=-=-=-=-=-= DESCRIPTION =-=-=-=-=-=-= Perhaps no song has captured the sprit of downtown Springfield better than 'Springfield, Springfield' by Bart Simpson and Millhouse Van Houten. 'Springfield, Springfield, it's a hell of a town: the schoolyard's up and the shopping malls down. The stray dogs go to the animal pound.' Besides the security of having the police station nearby, downtown Springfield also has some good shopping- stop by the Android's Dungeon for the latest issue of Radioactive Man, or get some genuine WWII-era weaponry at Herman's Military Antiques.

Then head for the beauty and serenity of the Springfield Mountains! Take in sweeping, panoramic views of downtown Springfield while cruising with your sweetie to Inspiration Point.

This option will appear on the End Of Game Screen. When you have $1,000,000 you will unlock the End Of Game Movie. ============================================================================ =9= SUNDAY DRIVE ============================================================================ When you have selected Sunday Drive mode you will need to select your character. Once you have done so you will need to select your starting location. When you both your character and your starting location, you will begin your Sunday Drive. In Sunday Drive mode you can browse the town at your leisure. There is no time limit and you don't earn fares, though you still pick up passengers. This also means that there are no Road Rage or Safe Trip bonuses. As there is no time Burns Transit Bus Stops do not give you the extra 2 seconds, as in Road Rage Mode. Sunday Drive is useful for two main reasons. One is that if you are new to the game, you can learn how to play. And two, is that you can learn a whole manner of shortcuts and side alleys that do not appear on the map, that could make your trips quicker. Also you can find the locations of things such as Burns Transit Bus Stops, to earn those extra seconds. ============================================================================ =10= MISSION MODE ============================================================================ =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= MISSION MODE SCREEN =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= On the mission mode screen , there is the trip timer, your mission status and the area map. In mission mode you must complete certain tasks with a character, in a set time. If you complete all 10 missions, then you will be rewarded with 'Car Built For Homer'. Now when you select Homer you will have the choice to drive the Family Sedan or Car Built For Homer. I have given each mission a difficulty rating out of 5. 5 being the hardest, 1 the easiest. The things which you must knock over are surrounded by the small neon blue rings as passengers are. ============================================================================ =10A= MISSION 1 - WILLIE'S PAPER SHREDDER ============================================================================ DIFFICULTY - 2/5 TIME ALLOWED - 1 minute =-=-=-=-=-=-= DESCRIPTION =-=-=-=-=-=-= Mr Burns has bought up the Springfield Shopper and filled it pro-transit propaganda.

If you don't get to the fare first, don't worry because if you crash into your opponent at a good speed, the fare will come and hop in your car. You can also lose fares in the same. The game is only finished when a player reaches the target target earnings selected before the game. * Note when you pick up the passenger, a flag appears in the top right hand corner. ============================================================================ =12= OPTIONS ============================================================================ =-=-=-=-=-= LOAD GAME =-=-=-=-=-= Select this option and you can load up a previously saved game, or start and entirely new game. =-=-=-=-=- CONTROLS -=-=-=-=-= Here you can set your controller configuration to Configuration 1 or Configuration 2. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= GAME DIFFICULTY =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Here you can set the game difficulty.
