                            1.1  Game Details
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    This version of Road Rage came out on June 26, 2003, one and a half
    years after the Gamecube, PS2, and Xbox versions.
    
    Developed by Altron and released by Fox Interactive/THQ.
    
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
                          1.2  Burns Strikes Again
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Springfield. City on the move. Or is it? The once bustling burb 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 billfold of every
    Johnny Commuter and Janie Buspass in the fair town. The dastardly
    devil has even converted the buses to nuclear power and given his
    drivers free reign to wreak havoc on this hamlet's 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 braving the bumper-to-bumper mayhem to provide
    shuttle service for the stranded citizenry and earn themselves $1
    million. Will these chivalrous chauffeurs, these vigilante valets
    bring down Montgomery's mass transit monopoly? Or will evil keep
    its grip on the wheel?
    
    Only time will tell...
    
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
                              1.3  The Drivers
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    No, the drivers are not your "professional" cabbie drivers. It's the
    average Springfield citizen, taking the reigns of vigilante justice
    into his or her own hands.
    
    Vehicle ratings are based on a scale from 1 to 5
    
    
    +=+=+=+=
       Homer
    +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+
    The patriarch of the Simpson family. When he's not sleeping during
    nuclear meltdowns he likes to knock back a few cold ones at Moe's
    Tavern.
    
    Vehicles:
    
    [Family Sedan]
    
    The family sedan is your above average vehicle. The stats are all up
    there, and it's ok for all modes.
    
    Acceleration...4
    Top speed......4
    Handling.......4
    
    
    [The Car Built for Homer]
    
    The Homer is almost as good as the family sedan, but not quite. It's
    turning is a bit off, and the acceleration is a bit slower as well.
    
    Acceleration...3
    Top speed......4
    Handling.......3
    
    
    +=+=+=+
       Lisa
    +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+
    Lisa, Springfield's answer to a question no one asked. You'll hear
    her opinions whether you like it or not. Lisa likes to do homework
    and play the saxophone.
    
    Vehicles:
    
    [Elec Taurus]
    
    The Elec Taurus is a good little car, but not for speed. The top
    speed and acceleration are both low, but the handling is up there.
    Good for avoiding traffic and such.
    
    Acceleration...2
    Top speed......3
    Handling.......4
    
    
    +=+=+=+
       Bart
    +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+
    The little hellion, known as "boy" to Homer. Together they start most
    of the Simpson family's adventures. Bart likes to skateboard and
    make fun of Principal "Big Butt" Skinner.
    
    Vehicles:
    
    [Soap Box Racer]
    
    The soap box racer is so very close to the family sedan, but the
    acceleration sort of kills it. Still a good one.
    
    Acceleration...3
    Top speed......4
    Handling.......4
    
    
    +=+=+=+=
       Marge
    +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+
    The voice of reason and calm within the family. Though Marge is a
    rational woman, she often gets caught up in crazy situations. She
    likes to spend her time folding.
    
    Vehicles:
    
    [Canyonero]
    
    This thing is SLOW, but it's a tank. It has good handling and can run
    through most road objects without a problem.
    
    Acceleration...2
    Top speed......2
    Handling.......4
    
    
    +=+=+=+=+
       Grampa
    +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+
    Grampa Abe Simpson might be the real patriarch of the Simpson family,
    but who cares? He's old. Now he spends his time dating older women
    and sitting at the staring window.
    
    Vehicles:
    
    [Cart]
    
    Grampa's cart is definitely one of the best vehicles in the game. It
    has the speed and handling to get the big money.
    
    Acceleration...3
    Top speed......4
    Handling.......5
    
    
    +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+
       Groundskeeper Willie
    +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+
    Ay, it's one of Springfield's best grounds maintenance technicians
    (janitor). This laddy is your average Scottish man, who enjoys good
    beer, a good rake, and a good greasin'.
    
    Vehicles:
    
    [Tractor]
    
    The tractor is slow, has ok handling, and it's not even a tank! There
    are better vehicles than this.
    
    Acceleration...2
    Top speed......3
    Handling.......3
    
    
    +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+
       Krusty the Clown
    +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+
    It's a laugh a minute with this clown, but only on camera. Off the
    camera he's a lonely, bitter drunk who enjoys cheap porn and betting.
    
    Vehicles: 
    
    [Krusty's Clown Car]
    
    The clown car is fairly average. If you've gone as far as Krusty it
    would be best to stick with Grampa.
    
    Acceleration...3
    Top speed......3
    Handling.......4
    
    
    +=+=+=+=
       Snake
    +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+
    Need some crime committed? Snake is your man. He'll burn down
    orphanages, blow up buses full of nuns, and even smoke inside a
    Kwik-E-Mart. What a psycho...
    
    Vehicles:
    
    [Lil Bandit]
    
    Lil Bandit is fast, but the bad handling can be a problem on the
    tight turns. I leave it up to you.
    
    Acceleration...4
    Top speed......5
    Handling.......2
    
    
    +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=
       Professor Frink
    +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+
    The good professor is Springfield's resident genius. Aside from
    inventing all kinds of crazy things, Frink is into Xena and other
    "nerdy" ventures.
    
    Vehicles:
    
    [Flying Car]
    
    Oh Frink, what've they done to you? Frink was the best choice in the
    first Road Rage games, but now he's one of the slowest ones.
    
    Acceleration...2
    Top speed......3
    Handling.......3
    
    
    +=+=+=+
       Otto
    +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+
    "Uh, Otto's not here man." Yup, Otto's way out there. He digs 80s
    speed metal, he drives a school bus, and he sleeps in abandoned
    houses.
    
    Vehicles:
    
    [School Bus]
    
    Otto's school bus is a tank, so of course it's sort of slow.
    
    Acceleration...1
    Top speed......3
    Handling.......2
    
    
    +=+=+=+=+
       Barney
    +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+
    Hey, who said drunks don't contribute to society? Barney has been
    around for 40 years, and in that time he has streaked, drunk beer,
    and... oh, he was the Plow King!
    
    Vehicles:
    
    [Plow King]
    
    Now, I'm not sure if I got this right. Barney's Plow King is a tank,
    and has good top speed? I tried it, and it does seem so. Plow King
    is great for Performance mode.
    
    Acceleration...2
    Top speed......4
    Handling.......2
    
    
    +=+=+=
       Moe
    +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+
    Oh, Moe. All he has going for him is a dank old tavern and his
    filthy sedan. Sure he can't get a woman, but who needs a woman when
    you have drunks to watch over every night.
    
    Vehicles:
    
    [Sedan]
    
    Moe's sedan isn't the best. It's slow, and the handling could use
    some work. If you need a sedan, stick to Homer's.
    
    Acceleration...2
    Top speed......3
    Handling.......3
    
    
    +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+
       Chief Wiggum
    +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+
    Constable Wiggum, the short and pudgy arm of the law in Springfield.
    Sitting is a good thing with this guy. Sitting, and enjoying a large
    box of donuts.
    
    Vehicles:
    
    [Cop Car]
    
    Wiggum's cop car is about average. There are better vehicles than this.
    
    Acceleration...3
    Top speed......4
    Handling.......3
    
    
    +=+=+=
       Apu
    +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+
    Apu has been Springfield's reliable (and expensive) food supplier
    for years. Now that he's married and has eight children, he's
    learned to only work 18 hours a day.
    
    Vehicles:
    
    [Sports Car]
    
    The sports car is the best vehicle, hands down. Although the
    acceleration is average, the perfect top speed and handling make
    Apu's vehicle the best.
    
    Acceleration...3
    Top speed......5
    Handling.......5
    
    
    +=+=+=+=+=+=
       Mr. Burns
    +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+
    Mr. Burns is the most evil man in the evilest part of Springfield,
    and his latest scheme proves it. He enjoys sucking the blood of
    young boys and burning money.
    
    Vehicles (only in Performance and Sunday Drive):
    
    [Limousine]
    
    Although the limousine is tied with Homer's family sedan as the
    second best vehicle, it's only available after you have earned 1
    million dollars.
    
    Acceleration...4
    Top speed......4

    Best Driver
    +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+
    
    The best place to start is with the best driver. There are a total
    of 19 drivers, though you may have to unlock everyone after Grampa
    by earning cash.
    
    Since you can't choose who you unlock, the best driver from the
    beginning is Grampa. He has great speed and handling, when compared
    to some of the other early drivers.
    
    The ninth driver you can unlock is Apu, and his speed is just a bit
    better than Grampa's. You will want to stick with him for the rest
    of the game.

    Fare Bonuses
    +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+
    
    After you pick up a passenger you may get a bonus objective.
    
    Hit Cars or Objects
    
     For this bonus you will have to hit a certain amount of cars or
     objects as you drive to the drop point. It's not too difficult, but
     hitting stuff can waste a lot of time.
    
     Mad Trip...$300 and 5 seconds
    
    
    Avoid Traffic
    
     This bonus requires that you not hit ANY cars. Not a single one. If
     you do hit a car, you won't get the bonus.
    
     Safe Trip...$350 and 3 seconds
    
    
    +=+=+=+=+=+
    Drop Points
    +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+
    
    Drop points are square spots where your passengers will want to be
    dropped off. These drop points never change, and you can actually
    get an idea of where they are by going to Options > Extras > Course
    Layout (must be unlocked in Mission Mode).
    
    There are several bonuses when you reach a drop point.
    
    Arrival speed
    
     Fast......$100 and 3 seconds
     Average...$50 and 1 second
     Slow......$25
    
    
    Distance (from center)
    
     Just!.....$500 and 3 seconds
     Near......$100 and 1 second
     Average...$50
     Far.......$25
    
    
    +=+=+=+=+
    Locations
    +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+
    
    Evergreen Terrace
    
     It's Anytown USA, home to the Simpsons and wholesome family values.
     This area is the one you start with, but getting fares can be pretty
     tough. The drop points only have ONE entrance, so you have to make
     sure and follow the yellow path on the map. Keep your eyes open for
     the orange orbs that circle the drop points.
    
    
    Entertainment District
    
     This is the spot where Springfield's citizens go to enjoy 
     themselves. Entertainment District is FLAT. There's not much else
     to say about it. All of the drop points are in open areas, so they
     aren't as difficult to reach as the drop points in Evergreen Terrace.
    
    
    Springfield Dam
    
     Ah, there's nothing like a little bit of nature mixed with cold
     concrete and steel. This place is like a total opposite of
     Entertainment District. There are huge hills, lots of curves, and
     varying terrain. Although the drop points will usually be far apart,
     the trip will get you loads of cash.
    
    
    Down Town
    
     Down town's the spot to find Springfield's bustling and busy
     businesses. This place is practically a clone of Entertainment
     District. It's flat, and the drop points are out in the open.
    
    
    Country Road
    
     It's Springfield's back country, where you can find the Springfield
     power plant, the country, and the beach. This area reminds me a lot
     of Evergreen Terrace and Springfield Dam. 
    
     The upper and right sides are mostly flat, but have some hills.
     Some of the drop points are enclosed, so remember to follow the
     yellow paths on the map.
    
     The lower area is like Springfield Dam, with different terrain and
     wide open drop points. Overall, this area is real profitable. The
     long trips will make for a lot of cash.
    
    
    Springfield Mountains
    
     It's... more of Springfield's natural wonders. This is also the
     home of Burns' mansion. This area is sort of like Springfield Dam
     or Country Road, but with less hills and more jumps. The only way
     to jump the gaps is with the yellow arrows on the ground. It's a
     good area for cash, but not as good Country Road or Springfield Dam.

    +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+
    
    The best driver in Performance mode is up to the player. In
    Performance mode you have to crash into stuff and jump over stuff,
    and different drivers have different advantages.
    
    Apu's speed can help when going for the big jumps, or if you're
    trying to crash into as many things as possible. On the other end
    of the spectrum would be someone like Barney. His Plow King is
    massive, and you can literally plow through everything without a
    problem.
    
    So it's up to you. 
    
    
    +=+=+=+=+=
    Passengers
    +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+
    
    You will get to choose a passenger out of 21 possible candidates.
    Each passenger will have his or her own preferences, and if you want
    to get as much cash as possible you'll have to remember those
    preferences.
    
    There are 5 levels of preference for each passenger, and four
    different tasks.
    
    
    Tasks
    
     Jump..........Determines how well a passenger enjoys jumps.
     Hit cars......Shows if your passenger likes hitting cars.
     Hit lifes.....Shows if a passenger likes hitting sidewalk stuff.
     Hit objects...Shows if a passenger likes hitting objects.
    
    
    Preferences
    
     Loves it..........Loves doing that task.
     Likes it..........Likes doing that task.
     Indifferent.......Doesn't really care about the task.
     Doesn't like it...Doesn't like the task.
     Hates it..........Hates the task.
    
    ALERT! ALERT! One more important thing. If you do something your
    passenger doesn't like the meter at the top will get depleted.
    
    
    +=+=+=+=+=+=
    Road Bonuses
    +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+
    
    There will be three types of bonuses as you drive around the different
    stages.
    
    
    Jump Bonus
     Grab the wings to do a long jump. The lighter vehicles will go
     further than big vehicles.
    
    Speed Bonus
     The speed bonus looks like a blue gun. The faster you hit it, the
     more points you get.
    
    Horn bonus
     This thing is a horn with orange orbs circling around it.
    
    
    +=+=+=+=+=+=+
    Chain Bonuses
    +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+
    
    Chain bonuses are easy to get. You start a chain whenever you do any
    of the tricks for money. If you do another type of trick it will
    immediately start a chain bonus.
    
    Chain bonuses can go on as long as there's tricks to do. The money
    will continue to multiply based on the length of the chain.
    
    
    +=+=+=+=+
    Locations
    +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+
    
    I COULD list every location like in the Road Rage section above, but
    why? This is just like the Best Driver category.
    
    It doesn't matter what stage you choose, because they will all have
    plenty of bonuses and others things to crash into. It's a free for
    all, so GO NUTS!

    ===== 4.0 MODES FOR FUN ============================================
    
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
                              4.1  Sunday Drive
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Objective: Have fun!
    
    
    Yup, all you can do here is drive around aimlessly and look at the
    sights. I'd list the locations... but it's more fun to explore on
    your own.
    
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
                              4.2  Mission Mode
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Objective: Help the Springfield citizens accomplish various tasks.
    
    
    +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=
    Mission 1: Willie's Paper Shredder
    +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+
    
    Mr. Burns has taken over the Springfield newspaper and filled it
    with pro-Burns propaganda. Willie won't stand for it! Now Willie
    must knock over 12 newspaper boxes in 1 minute to show Burns up.
    
    It's fairly simple, as long as you follow the newspaper boxes. They
    will all be lit up by blue orbs, so start by going straight ahead
    and knocking out the first one.
    
    Keep going straight and knock over the next two boxes, then take a
    right at the next intersection. This will lead on a curved street,
    and if you stay on this street you'll find the rest of the newspaper
    boxes.
    
    Don't get fooled when you see a small split in the road near the end.
    Stick to the right side.
    
    
    +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=
    Mission 2: Professor's Challenge
    +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+
    
    Professor Frink is trying to make his hovercraft fly, so he has to
    bounce on the clouds and stay in the air longer than 15 seconds!
    
    The main point of this one is to remain in the air by hitting the
    clouds along the way. There isn't much else to explain.
    
    Make sure to avoid hitting those gray borders.
    
    
    =+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+
    Mission 3: Barney's Rage
    +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+
    
    Barney is at it again, and now he's totally wasted. He feels like
    taking out his drunken rage on the town mascots.
    
    This mission is just like the Willie mission, so all you have to do
    is drive around and knock over the mascots in 45 seconds.
    
    Drive up and hit the first mascot, then make a right turn. Go straight
    up the street and you'll find the next four mascots along the way.
    
    Make a left at the fifth mascot and there will be two dirt blocks with
    small pools in them. Drive through the first block and hit the two
    mascots, then make a sharp left to find two more mascots, for a total
    of nine.
    
    Make a sharp right and go back to that first block and you'll find
    the tenth mascot at the far corner. Make a right turn. You'll see
    the eleventh straight ahead, then make another right and go straight
    to eventually find the final mascot.
    
    
    +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=
    Mission 4: Otto's Driving Test
    +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+
    
    Otto is taking his weekly (court-ordered) driving test, and he has
    to obtain 20 flags in 50 seconds AND complete the course to get it.
    
    This mission is a tough one. I mean the tasks are easy when they are
    separate, but you have to collect 20 flags AND complete the course.
    
    First, try not to let go of A. Acceleration is the key to reach the
    end of the course.
    
    You might also want to use the R1 button to make the tight turns and
    avoid slowing down. It also helps to slide into the flags while
    facing the next direction.
    
    Now, I recommend you DO NOT miss any of the first nineteen flags
    along the way. After you get the nineteenth flag the road will split,
    but going to the left for those two flags is a huge waste of time.
    Just get the nineteen, then take the right branch to get the
    twentieth.
    
    Try to pass the jump in the road with more than fifteen seconds on
    the clock.
    
    This one will just take practice to beat.
    
    
    +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+
    Mission 5: Snake Escapes!
    +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+
    
    Snake is on the run from the law, but first he must take a shortcut
    across an old road in 1 minute and 45 seconds.
    
    This one is simple, just a race across a long and twisting road.
    They give you plenty of time, so don't even try to speed on the
    tight turns. Slow and steady, man.
    
    There will be a couple of shortcuts as well. After the first turn
    there will be three spots to make a left turn. The first left is a
    trap, but the second is the one to take. Use R1 to make a sharp turn
    and make the second left.
    
    A bit further after that left turn there will be a dirt track and a
    bridge on the right. Take the bridge because it's shorter, but make
    sure to slow down and make the right turn at the end.
    
    When you get to the three forks in the road, go down the center
    bridge.
    
    And finally, the map in the corner can be a big help. Keep an eye on
    it.
    
    
    +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+
    Mission 6: Moe's Taxi
    +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+
    
    Homer hit the bottle pretty hard tonight, and now Moe has to be a
    pal and take him home before Marge finds out... in 1 minute and
    50 seconds!
    
    You are given plenty of time in this one, so don't worry about that.
    But there are many paths to take. The best rule I have is STICK TO
    THE RIGHT SIDE. The right paths will always lead you in the correct
    direction.
    
    When you get to the part with the jumps, jump to the right. The
    platforms will lead you to the next road.
    
    When you get to the neighborhood area, stick to the right side again.
    The path at the bottom of the map will lead you straight to the
    Simpson house.
    
    
    +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=
    Mission 7: Donuts Rain
    +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+
    
    A donut truck has been spotted at the top of a cliff, driving
    erratically. Donuts are flying all about, and Chief Wiggum must
    collect enough evidence in 30 seconds.
    
    This mission is extremely easy. All you gave to do is drive around
    and collect donuts, 3500 points of them. Each donut has a point
    value, and if you collect more than one in a row they are Chained
    together for bonus points.
    
    Here is a breakdown of the points:
    
    Dark chocolate sprinkles...200
    Chocolate sprinkles........180
    Dark chocolate.............160
    Glazed.....................140
    Half glazed................120
    Half chocolate.............100
    Light chocolate............80
    Plain......................50
    
    Try to line up several donuts and get them all at once, so you can
    get more bonus points.
    
    
    +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=
    Mission 8: Not The Trees
    +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+
    
    Logging companies have been chopping down trees in Redwood Forest,
    and Lisa won't stand for it. She has decided that knocking over 8
    piles of wood will disrupt their operations.
    
    The 8 piles of wood are on a very specific path. Go straight ahead
    to find the first one, and keep following the road. You'll run into
    the second one after crossing a bridge.
    
    Make an immediate left turn after grabbing the second pile, you
    should cross over a railroad. Make a right at the next intersection
    and go straight to find the next wood pile.
    
    Keep following this main road and you'll get the next two wood piles.
    Make a left turn when this road ends and you should cross over a
    concrete bridge.
    
    Grab the next wood pile that appears and go into the tunnel on the
    right. It will be short, and you'll end up near Burns' mansion. You
    should now have 6 wood piles.
    
    As soon as you come out of the tunnel there will be some small
    concrete paths on the left. DO NOT go into the first path, go into
    the second path on the left. It will be easy to spot because there
    will be a wood pile right there.
    
    Go to the end of this path to find the last wood pile.
    
    
    +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=
    Mission 9: Circus Training
    +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+
    
    Krusty is training to be the best clown he can be, and he has to
    navigate a treacherous series of events to collect 3 star items in
    3 minutes and 45 seconds.
    
    There will be a straight road, and three roads that you can turn
    into on the left. They are event 1, event 2, and event 3 from
    beginning to end.
    
    Event 1 is a simple obstacle course. Just follow the path and you
    should be fine, but look out for the spot with a jump and a path to
    the right. DO NOT make the jump, take the path to the right. After
    you grab the star, turn around and go straight to exit this event.
    
    Event 2 is a ball balancing course. Drive straight ahead and you'll
    be thrown onto a ball. Let go of A immediately and hold B (reverse).
    This is how you maneuver with the ball. Remember not to bump into
    anything, or you will fall off.
    
    Turn left and go to the path on the right, then follow the path.
    Make the first right you see, then make the first left turn. Follow
    this path to reach the star, then turn around and follow that path
    to exit event 2.
    
    Event 3 will be an obstacle involving slippery surfaces and fire
    rings. The best way to maneuver through the ice path is to use the
    R1 button. Hold it to make sharp turns, but be careful not to turn
    too far.
    
    The fire rings don't really cause any damage, but they do disable
    you for a few seconds. Try not to get hit or you may fall off.
    
    After grabbing the third star you can turn around to find the exit.
    Go back to the main path and take a left, and follow it to reach the
    end of the course.
    
    
    +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=
    Mission 10: Burns' Arena
    +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+
    
    Homer is sick of taking crap from Mr. Burns, so he has decided to
    break all 10 statues in his garden in 50 seconds.
    
    What can I say? They give you 50 seconds to knock out 10 statues,
    which is a piece of cake. Burns' limo can get in the way, but it's
    no big deal.
    
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
                              4.3  Head to Head
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Objective: Compete against a fellow player for the mad cash.
    
    
    Oy, what's to say about this? You hook up two Gameboy Advance systems,
    put Road Rage into one of them, and choose Head to Head.
    
    The two players then compete to drop off passengers, and can even
    steal passengers from one another. It's a nice way for the kids to
    let out aggression.
