To get through the game faster by skipping levels,
try and fail a mission five times. Then, try again and fail. You
will be given "Yes", "No", and "Skip"
choices to try again. Select "Skip" to advance faster
through the game.
Ride an ATV or Quad
You can find an ATV or Quad to ride at the trailer
park in Homer's and Marge's levels. It is between two trailers
at the far end.
In Marge's level, go to the trailer park short cut then go near
the end of it. You will see a card floating on the top of the
trailer. Go on the left side of it and you will see a blue ATV.
Drive a boat car
In level 3, the boat car can be found on the C. Spanker,
where there are two big boxes next to one big box. Go up, then
into the extremely large box on top of the two other extremely
Drive the monorail
In Bart's first level, go to the entrance/exit to the
highway. Where there is a split road, go to the right and up the
stairs. You will see a monorail. Go to the front car and press
[Triangle] to drive the first monorail car around.
Drive a monster truck
When on Apu's level, you can get a monster truck, Go
to Springfield Stadium. Directly next to the fountain is a green
When playing as Lisa, drive any car to the pier and
look for the huge oil tanker with a Globex sign on one side with
a jump in front of it. Jump through the Globex sign and drive
to the top. Do not drive off. Park your car next to the little
gap/walkway on the left. Hop out and run up to the first set of
crates. Hop up to the very top and shimmy around the ledge. Inside
the top crate is the Nightboat.
Drive pink Cadillac
On level 6 with Bart, drive to Planet Hype (right at
the beginning of the docks, there is a revolving planet there)
and go on the roof. The Pink Cadillac is crashed into the front
of the building in a little slot (facing the Squidport sign).
Fall off the front of Planet Hype, land on the Cadillac, get in,
and drive it.
Drive RC car
On the final level as Homer, drive to where the firetruck
is a long ramp. As you jump off it, look off to the side. You
will see a little car with an antenna. Slowly drive up past where
the truck attaches to the ladder/ramp then drive fast towards
the building with mildew under the roof. You could also climb
up the other firetruck that is in the wreckage next to the building.
Jump on the ladder, then go up to the top of the firetruck. Next,
go over the side of the roof with the horizontal wood, then to
the top of the roof with the RC car.
On top of the Krusty Burger on Homer's final mission, drive your
car up the fire truck ladder. Try to land on the top of the Krusty
Burger. Get out of your car and you will see what looks like a
remote control car. You can actually drive it around town.
Drive a rocket car
In Homer's first level, drive to the power plant at
the back of the town. Then, drive through the power plant. Once
you reach the end, keep going along the road and on the left,
in front of one of the big gold houses near Mr. Burns' mansion,
you will find a blue and white rocket car that you can drive around.
Drive road vehicles
To drive another person's vehicle, walk up to it, press
[Triangle], and drive. This is a lot quicker than standing
on its roof. When in the vehicle, notice that the person that
was originally driver is still there. Your character will be in
the passenger side and you are not controlling them. This happens
sometimes with vehicles that you get from a phone (for example,
Mr. Burns' limo that Smithers is driving).
When you are in missions and get stuck, instead of
reversing and then turning and driving forward, press [Select].
Your car should restart on the road.
Multi-player racing game
Collect all the cards in one level to unlock the multi-player
racing mini game.
On Homer's first level, drive into the nuclear power
plant. You will soon find a blocked passage. Get out of your car,
jump on the metal things, and double jump then press [Square]
to break it. Inside are more than 100 coins. When in, hit all
of the chess people, get the coins, and knock down the trees for
a nice amount of coins. Note: This place is huge and you cannot
get your car in it.
At the power plant, go to Homer's workplace. Press
[Triangle] on the switch.
Watch an arcade game
When playing as Homer or Marge, go to the Kwik E Mart
and walk up to the arcade games behind Apu. Press [Triangle]
and you will be able to watch an arcade game.
Fix car damage
When your car blows up and you need it back quickly,
get in the wreck and drive into a wrench. This will return your
car to its original form.
Beating Smithers to Mr. Burns
To beat Smithers to Mr. Burns in the last mission in
level 1, purchase the Duff Truck from Gil and use it in the race.
Immediately when the level starts, drive it so it is facing the
entrance booth and stop it halfway between the fence and the booth.
Immediately exit from the car. Borrow a car that is driving into
or out of the plant to drive to Mr. Burns while Smithers keeps
trying to get the truck out of the way. If done correctly, he
will not be able to do so.
Enable the "Instant vehicle explosions" code. As soon
as the race starts, drive into Mr. Smithers. He will explode,
and you can then just drive to Mr. Burns.
Delivering toxic waste
On the mission in the level 7 where you have to deliver
toxic waste, use any car you can hijack the one that you use to
pick up the toxic waste. Then, get into a fast car or anything
else and drive to the school. Now you do not have to worry about
exploding the toxic waste. You should see the civilian car driving
with the toxic waste on the back. Just get into it and complete
Drive Skinner's sedan back to the
On the last part of the mission, get out from there
and go back to talk to Dr. Nick. From there, collect Skinner's
meds and walk back to the arcade. The clock will not start as
you have not gotten into a vehicle yet.
The moon from Abe's Odyssey
In Bart's level 2, go down to where the shipwreck and
the red is running into the water at the Squidport. Look at where
the lighthouse is shining. When the light faces backwards, it
will shine on the moon that is in Abe's Odyssey, with the hand
print on it.
Clueless mission: Easy completion
In level 3 in the Clueless mission (the second one
where you talk to Milhouse a lot), drive your car to Wall E. Weasle's.
Then, talk to Milhouse at the Noiseland Arcade. When you get into
your vehicle, you will have already be there. Then, before you
talk to Milhouse, drive to Planet Hype. Then, go back and talk
to Milhouse. Run to your vehicle and enter it. The vehicle should
be at Planet Hype. You should have completed the task. Then, before
you talk to Milhouse again, drive to the Springfield sign. Run
back and talk to Milhouse. Then, run to your vehicle. Enter it,
and you should now be done with this task. Exit the vehicle then
talk to Milhouse to complete the mission. Note: This only works
if you do it before you talk to Milhouse.
Get the rocket car in front of one of the mansions.
After you drive around and it gets destroyed, make sure you remember
where you left it. Then, look for one of the wrenches and get
it while out of a car. The rocket car will now return. You can
smash it again and keep getting money as many times as desired.
Enable the "Invincibility" and "Instant vehicle
explosions" codes. Drive around town, hitting all the cars
you can. You will get $10 for every car that you explode. Note:
This will cause a hit and run; watch out for the cops.
One of the best ways to get money is to smash cars/objects and
collect the coins, but you will inevitably get a Hit And Run and
have to avoid the cops. There is a way to avoid this and collect
all the coins desired. First, intentionally incite a Hit And Run.
Next, press [Start] and go to the mission selection screen.
Choose any mission. When you return to the game, the police lights
are still flashing around the radar but there are no police chasing
you. You can smash up everything in sight for as long desired
and no police will ever bother you. The only thing you have to
do is keep the police lights flashing around the radar. If you
let the Hit And Run end, you will have to start the trick over
Enable the "Instant vehicle explosions" code then crash
some cars. You should get some coins for each car.
Look for Buzz Cola boxes, vending machines, and Wasp cameras and
destroy them. You will get about 30 coins from each of them.
Kick Buzz Cola boxes or vending machines twice and they will not
explode. Return later and you can kick them two more times for
more coins. Note: You have to drive far away after the two kicks
or when you return it will explode.
Enable the "Instant vehicle explosions" and "Very
Fast car" codes. While driving, bump into the cars which
will give you money. Keep on doing this and you will eventually
get a Hit And Run. The cops will begin chasing you. Keep going
as out of control as much as possible but still move and bump
into cars. When the police try to bust you, they will have to
touch and thus explode and also give you money. Keep doing this
and you will not get caught unless you stop moving.
In Homer's level, go to the tobacco fields where you help Cletus.
Run over all of the stalks of tobacco with a car. Note: This will
also give you a Hit And Run, so do not stay too long.
To a lot of the Buzz Cola coins, get a very fast car with good
handling. Drive around Springfield repeatedly until you get the
desired amount of coins. While you are driving, go slow enough
but not too much to find cola boxes, cola glass billboards, and
cola vending machines to get the coins.
Easy bonus race wins
Enable the "Instant vehicle explosions" code,
then find and start a race. Destroy your opponents. Once this
is done, you should be the only one on the track.
Win all street races
Enable the "Instant vehicle explosion" and
"Invincibility" codes then enter a street race. Bump
into all the racing cars and they should explode. If done correctly,
you will win every street race that you enter.
On level 3 with Lisa you will do the Clueless mission.
When you meet Milhouse at the docks, he will tell you to drive
to the Springfield sign. Before you talk to him, drive your car
north of Milhouse to the Itchy Scratchy shop. Then, go talk to
him. When he is done talking, they will tell you to ''Get in your
vehicle''. Run to the Itchy Scratchy shop and get into your vehicle.
The timer will start and you will have more time.
When given a timed task, the timer will not start until you get
in the car. Try the level on foot and the timer should not start.
Easy mission completion
Note: This trick only works with missions that ask
you to find a car and travel to a location in a limited amount
of time. When you cannot complete a level because time runs out
before you can reach a location, just find out where the location
is and fail the mission. Then, try the same mission again, but
run to the location instead of driving there. The timer will not
start counting down until you enter a vehicle.
For some of the missions (for example, Clueless) where you are
instructed to get in your car, before the mission starts park
your car in front of the check point. Then, talk to the person
you are supposed to speak with. After talking to the person, jump
on a car traveling in the direction of where you parked your car
and ride it to your destination. Note: Do not hijack the car --
just hop on top of it. The car will keep going.
In any level, look for a glass window with Krusty's
face and the words "Buzz Cola" on it. If you drive through
it, it is usually a shortcut to get to where you need to go. Sometimes
it reveals a hidden area.
When you are about to start a new game, go to options
menu and enable the "Fast cars" and "Red brick
car" codes. In Homer's first level, get the rocket car and
it will be the little red brick car. Get in it then hold [L1]
until you are at a complete stop. Keep [L1] held and you
will start to skid flames for a moment.
On any mini-race (bonus game), you can get a special
speed boost. Once you have started the race, press [L3].
It should give you a nice advantage over your opponent. Note:
This only works once or twice -- use it wisely. It is recommended
that you use it just as the race starts.
Decrease Hit And Run meter
When you are almost going to activate the Hit And Run,
get out of your car and borrow the first car you can find. Do
not drive one from the telephone. Then, quickly get out and enter
your car again. The Hit And Run meter will reach zero.
When you reach Hit And Run status, get out of you car and walk
into a building. Wait until your Hit And Run meter goes down,
then leave and get back in your car.
The easiest way to get away from the cops is to jump out of your
car and go into a house or store. This works best in level 1 with
Homer, as you can go into the Kwik-e-Mart or the Simpson's home.
Enable the "Instant vehicle explosions" and "Invincibility"
codes. When you accidentally activate the Hit And Run meter, just
remain still inside the car. When the police touches you, they
will explode before you get busted and your car will not explode.
Get a ride
Go to any level (Homer's first level recommended).
Stand in the middle of the road and when a car appears, jump onto
its hood then jump again onto the roof. It will take you all around
If you hop on top of any of the cars in level 1, they will give
you a free ride and Homer will do a dancing motion. Often, they
will lead you to the races.
Blow up police cars
Enable the "Invincibility" and "Instant
vehicle explosions" codes. Park your car next to a passenger
and get out. Start kicking them until you get a Hit And Run. When
a police car arrives, get into your car and you will not get busted.
The police cars will get blown up.
Avoiding the police
Enable the "Super jumps" and "Invincibility"
codes. When you get a hit and run, constantly jump to avoid them.
If you enable the "Instant vehicle explosions" code,
you will be able to destroy them if you jump and land on a car.
This trick is also useful for avoiding the mob, etc.
Alternate character reactions
When you buy different costumes, in each level the
character you select will react differently when you allow him
or her to remain idle. For example, choosing Bartman will have
Bart jump up and fly around for a few seconds.
Seriously damaged car
On Homer's final levels, drive the 70's car to the
yellow bridge that reads "Evergreen Terrace and Power Plant".
Speed out of the cemetery, drive onto the bridge, and ram the
car into the railings on the right-hand side the bridge to get
them merged into each other. Get out from the car and watch it
fall. If it does not fall, push it. Make sure it falls directly
next to the bridge. It will then appear from the purple water.
Merge through the road completely damaged almost exploded. This
also happens when the "Invincibility" code is enabled.
Drive in a flaming car
To drive around in a car that is on fire, order it
from the phone booth. Then, keep crashing it into walls until
it starts to smoke black. Check in the phone booth to see its
damage. If it is not 100%, keep stomping on it ([X], [X],
[Square]). Keep checking the phone booth so you do not accidentally
blow it up. When it gets to 100% (meaning that last stomp brought
it up to 100%), note that it has not exploded. Order it again
from the phone booth. The car will appear in front of you, on
fire. You can drive it around, but the slightest touch will blow
To drive around in a vehicle that is on fire, order it from the
phone booth. Then, keep crashing it into walls until it starts
to emit black smoke. Check in the phone booth to see its damage.
If it is not 100%, keep stomping on it. Keep checking the phone
booth so you do not accidentally blow it up. When it gets to 100%,
order it again from the phone booth. The car will appear in front
of you, on fire. Save and quit, then go to the options screen
and enable in the "Invincibility" code. Then resume
the game, order the 100% damaged vehicle, and you can now drive
in a vehicle that is on fire and cannot blow up.
Drive a wreck
Enable the "Invincibility" and the "Instant
vehicle explosions" codes. Then, destroy any vehicle on the
road. You can now drive the charred wreck that remains. Note:
This car is very slow.
Jump out of your car as it blows up. Return to the wreck and press
[Y]. You will be able to drive around in the wreck, with
Note: When driving a wreck, it seems to go faster while in reverse.
Getting out of jams
When you hit a truck in the rear, it will not move.
To get out, lightly tap [Circle]. You will hear a non-stop
screeching noise. Press the D-Pad in the direction that
you want to gom then accelerate. You will get out of the jam.
To have a very fast car, hold down the [Gas] +
[Reverse] + [Brake] until the smoke turns black and
you see flames on bottom of your tires. This can only be done
with some cars. Release everything except [Gas] and you should
go very fast.
180 degree turn
While driving fast, hold [L1] and turn the Analog-stick
as much as possible. You should end up with about a 180 degree
Glitch: Everyone in nuclear power plant
Enable the "Super jumps" and "Very fast"
codes. Go to the nuclear power plant and get to the long hallway
where all the pictures of Mr. Burns are located. Face away from
the plant and towards the city. Then, back up and ramp into the
city through the ceiling. To restore things to normal, start a
Glitch: Drive underwater
In the level 3 (Lisa's level), drive to where the big
Springfield sign (like the Hollywood sign) is located. There is
a bridge going over some water at that location. Enable the "Super
jumps" and "Invincibility" codesHump into the water
that faces out to the sea. Your car should go underwater, but
you will not drown. You can drive out to sea, and it will be as
if you are driving on air. Note: You can also get out of the car,
but if you jump you will either have to start a mission again
or restart the PlayStation2.
Enable the "Super jumps" code, then drive to the bridge
in the first level near the power plant and Cletus' shack. Drive
onto it, then face the water while still remaining in your car.
Drive back until you hit the side of the bridge. When no cars
are coming, drive forward. Then, when you are about to hit the
side of the bridge, press [R3] to "super jump".
You will fly into the water. Your car will fall under the water,
and you can drive around from there. Note: To get out, drive towards
Glitch: Fall through sofa
In Marge's second level, go to the top floor of Mr.
Burns' mansion. Kick one of the sofas into the middle of the street
until it floats at a small angle. Jump up on the higher end and
you should slide to the other end. You will fall out the bottom
of the couch. Note: This requires a lot of patience and skill.
Glitch: Invincible Mr. Burns
Select the "There's Something About Monty"
mission in Homer's second level. Drive to the power plant and
climb the wreckage to Mr. Burns's office. Walk through the falling
floor tiles to Mr. Burns. Start kicking him towards the falling
tiles until you both fall in. When you reappear on the deck, walk
to Mr. Burns's desk. There will be an exclamation mark where Mr.
Burns was, but you will not be able to see or feel him. Press
[Triangle] to begin the next mission. Mr. Burns will reappear
and will give you the mission intro.
Glitch: Flaming skid marks
This trick requires the open wheel race car and the
"Invincibility" code. Find a wide open space, such
as a large parking lot. Hold [Square] + [X] + [Left]
or [Right]. Eventually, your skid marks will catch on fire
for a short distance behind you. Note: This will not work with
other cars, or on any surface besides blacktop.
Glitch: Invisible smoking ATV
In Marge's level, get the ATV in the trailer park then
go to Mr. Burns' house. Go inside and drive the ATV up the steps
and into his room. Drive the ATV by the middle table. Get off,
and in the right corner is a gag switch. Hit it, and the ATV will
flip with the table and you will see smoke coming from nowhere.
Note: You cannot get your ATV back.
Glitch: Drive burning vehicles
Get any vehicle from any phone booth and start ramming
a wall with it. Keep doing this until you know the smoke will
not get darker. Get out of your vehicle and go to the phone booth
again to check its damage. It should be at 100%, but still not
destroyed. If it is, call it. The vehicle will now be on fire
but still driveable. If it is not, it should be very close to
100%; ram it into a wall much more gently until it is at 100%.
A burning vehicle cannot endure any damage -- be very careful
when driving one.
Alternately, enable the "Invincibility" code. Get any
vehicle from any phone booth and put it in a corner. Find another
vehicle and start ramming your vehicle with it. Even if your vehicle
is invincible, it can still be damaged if you are not in it. Keep
doing this until you know the smoke will not get any darker. Get
out of the "borrowed" vehicle and go to the phone booth
again to check your vehicle's damage. It should be at 100%, but
still not destroyed. If it is, call it. The vehicle will be on
fire but still will be driveable. If it is not, it should be very
close to 100% -- ram it much more gently until iti s at 100%.
Stay with same vehicles or costumes
in certain missions
If you want to stay with the same vehicle or costumes
in certain missions (for example, level 3 mission 5), go to the
person who you usually start the mission with. Then, go to the
place where you get the vehicle or costume. The game will instruct
you to either get in your vehicle or go to the part of town where
the costume is needed. Then, change to the vehicle or costume
desired. When you go to your destination or get in a different
vehicle, the system will think you have the appropriate vehicle
or costume for the mission, when in fact you will have a completely
