 II.  STORY
=============================================================================
Hello, fellow humans!

Bartholomew J. Simpson here, with a very important secret:  SPACE MUTANTS ARE 
INVADING SPRINGFIELD!

That's right, man!  A buncha slimy, horrible, totally gross and putrid 
monsters are taking over the bodies of the people who live here and they 
wanna build a weapon that's gonna take over the entire planet!

Pretty cool huh?  Anyway, yours truly is the only one who can see 'em 'cause 
of my X-Ray glasses - so it's up to me to stop 'em!  I've gotta spraypaint 
things, get radical on my skateboard, use my trusty slingshot and in general, 
behave like a nuisance, man.

Plus, with evil dudes like Nelson the bully and Sideshow Bob getting in my 
way, it's a good thing I've got the rest of the Simpsons to help me out!

So if you're a decent person, a patriot and somebody who cares about this 
sorry planet, you'll do the right thing.  Save the Earth!  PLAY THIS GAME!

Thanks, man.

 IV.  GAMEPLAY
=============================================================================
The Status Screen gives you the information you need to complete the levels.  
The information display include the following.

Member Portrait:  In each level, one of the Simpsons will help Bart out 
against the boss of the level.  The person is indicated by his/her portrait 
followed by blank spaces.  The blank spaces will spell out that member's name 
as Bart collects more proof of the alien invaders.

In order to get the family member to help you, convincing proof must first be 
obtained.  You can get the proof by jumping on the head of people who have 
been taking over by the aliens.  This will cause them to drop proof of their 
existence that you must pick up before it disappears.  Each time you get one, 
a letter in the name of one of the Simpsons appears under his/her picture.  
Spell out his/her name completely to gain his/her assistance.

# of Hits Left:  The Bart Head icons to the right of the Simpsons family 
member's head show how many hits Bart has in his current life.  Bart dies 
when both are gone.

Current Item:  To the right of the Bart Head icons is the name of the item 
from your inventory that you are currently holding.  If you have more than 
one of that item, a number to the right displays the quantity.

Score:  Your current score.
Lives:  The number of lives Bart has.  The game is over when you lose the 
        last life.
Time :  The amount of time you have to complete the level.  You will lose a 
        life if you haven't completed a level before the time runs out.
Goals:  The number of goals you must meet before you can fight the boss of 
        the level.


=============================================================================
 V.  BART'S ARSENAL
=============================================================================
---------
 Weapons
---------
Bart is only allowed to shoot at goals and anything else that is firing or 
throwing something at him.  The way to get weapons is to pick them up as you 
go along, so keep your eyes peeled.  Bart can only use these weapons in the 
level he finds them in.  After Bart's collected a weapon, he carries it with 
him at all times until the ammo is used up.  Bart can pick up and carry as 
many weapons as he can find.

Spraypaint
You can find these cans on the streets of Springfield.  Bart will need them 
to change the color of some of the purple objects, so don't waste paint!

Slingshot
There are plenty of these around the Krustyland Amusement Park.  You get 12 
shots with each one.

Dart Gun
Find these on display at the Natural History Museum.  Each one has 12 shots.

--------------------
 Other Useful Items
--------------------
X-ray Specs
Use these to see which person's body has been taken over by the aliens.

Coins
Bart starts out the game with 10 coins.  Coins buy items, make phone calls, 
play games, and for every 15 coins you collect, you will get an extra life.  
For each extra life gained in this manner, you will lose 10 coins.

Wrench
Useful for opening fire hydrants.

Key
Use it at the Springfield Retirement Home to warp back to Moe's Tavern.

Whistle
Use this at the Springfield Retirement Home to call Grandpa.

Magnet
Used to rig the spinning wheel game in your favor.

Cherry Bomb
These small explosives can scare animals.

Rockets
These sparklers will launch up high in the sky.  Bart can use them to scare 
animals, hit windows, and cause other trouble.  Just make sure to use them 
quickly as the fuse won't stay lit forever.

Pause
Use this to pause/resume the game.

Sound Test
A hidden item that lets you sample the sounds in the game.


=============================================================================
 VI.  FRIENDS AND FOES
=============================================================================
----------------
 Bart's Friends

Bart's dad will watch out for him at the museum, and at the plant, too, but
only if Bart finds him some boxes of donuts.

=============================================================================
 VII.  WALKTHROUGH
=============================================================================
This walkthrough will guide you through each level, but it is not the only 
solution so feel free to follow as much/little as you want.  I assume that 
you will use the X-ray Specs to find out who is an alien.  Note that the 
family members are not required to defeat the bosses.  They make the battles 
easier though (possible exception is Marge).  Each level also has more goals 
you can get than required so you can skip a few.

This walkthrough is for the NES version of the game although it may be used 
for any version of the game.  While the other versions are practically 
identical, there are some things that only apply to the NES version.  Listed 
below are the NES "exclusives."  Everything else remains the same with only 
graphical differences among the different versions.

1.  "RK" sign.
2.  Barney's Bowlarama can only be lit up by any part of the sign.
3.  Level 2's signs "RW", "AW", "KW", and "JW".

----------------------------------
 Level 1:  Streets of Springfield
----------------------------------
Goal   :  Collect 24 purple objects
Boss   :  Nelson
Helper :  Maggie

Jump on the trash can to get the Krusty Head on top of the theater.  Now head 
right.  Jump on top of the window sill to the left of Moe's Tavern to reach 
the can of spray paint.  Spray the Space Mutant 4 poster.  Now go to the 
right.  Use the phone to the right of Moe's Tavern by selecting the coin and 
using it.  You'll notice that the aliens to the right of the phone 
disappeared as soon as you made the call.  After the phone call, Moe will 
emerge from the door.  Spray him and he'll charge at you.  Jump to avoid 
getting hit.  Now jump on top of the phone booth.  From there, jump onto the 
clothesline.  Walk across it and you'll knock off the clothes that are 
hanging on the line.  This covers up the two purple objects in the yard.  Now 
get off the clothesline by walking off the left side.  Walk over to the 
right, stopping when you are under the bush that is to the right of the 
purple objects you just covered up.  Now jump and a Krusty Head will pop out 
of the bush and fly off to the right.  Catch it before it falls through the 
sidewalk.  Now head to the right and spray the trash can.  Keep spraying it 
until it changes color.  Then use it to grab the spray can on the second 
floor window.  Now head right.  Don't jump at the first bush because a bee 
will emerge and try to sting you.  However, do jump at the second bush, to 
the left of the aliens, as it contains a coin.  The bush to its right also 
contains a coin.  The last bush to the right contains a coin, but it will fly 
out toward the left.

After grabbing the coins, enter Tool World and buy both the key and the 
wrench.  Spray the fire hydrant.  Notice how the awning says "Wet Paint?"  
Use the wrench on the hydrant to splash water on the awning which washes off 
the paint.  Now get on top of Tool World's sign to spray the flower vase.  
Next, stand on top of the window of Tool World's door.  From there jump to 
the left but try to position yourself just to the right of the bush that is 
to the left of Tool World.  If you did it correctly, you should land and 
stand on top of the green grass.  Press DOWN to drop down.  A sign that reads 
"RK" will drop down.  Grab it to get an extra life.  Now head to the right to 
Mel's Novelty Shop.  Buy a cherry bomb and 6 (more if you need practice) 
rockets.  Now spray the flower vase on the second floor window above the 
door.  There's a Krusty Head two windows to the right.  Now buy the whistle 
and magnet from Toys "N" Stuff.  Spray the flower vase on the window above 
the door.  There's a spray can to the right.  Now head right.  In front of 
Candy Most Dandy is a ball.  Walk into it and it will start rolling to the 
right.  Jump on it when it rolls under the paint can above the awning.  It 
will fly up and knock over the paint can which spills paint onto the awning.  
Don't worry if you missed.  Just spray the trash can to the right and then 
use it to knock over the paint yourself.  Next, jump across the window sills 
to the flower vase on the left.  Slowly walk off the sill's left edge so you 
land on the white canopy above the door.  Now spray the flower vase.  Head 
right to the pet store.  Stand on the display window.  Use a cherry bomb to 
scare the purple bird away.  Then spray the flower vase above.

By now, the timer should read around 450 seconds or so.  Head back to the 
movie theater.  You should make it back before the timer reads 400.  Now wait 
for the timer to reach 400 seconds.  At 400, a purple clothed kid will come 
out of the theater.  Spray him and then jump to avoid getting hit.  As a side 
note, another kid will come out when the timer reaches 200 seconds.  Anyway, 
go left and spray the trash can you passed by from the beginning of the game.  
Now head back to the pet shop.  The bush to the right has a coin in it.  To 
the right is a sign on the grass that says "Keep Off."  Jump on it and you'll 
notice that you can stand on the grass.  Walk to the right and a purple 
uniformed police officer will be walking around.  Spray him before he leaves.  
Jump out of the way to avoid getting hit.  Now to the right is the statue of 
Jebediah Springfield.  You'll notice the purple bird on the statue's 
shoulder.  Stand on the first sidewalk crack to the left of the statue.  Now 
use a rocket.  It will hit and scare the bird.  Jump on across the barricades 
and some coins will pop out.  You'll ride the skateboard now.  Stay at the 
topmost level of the sidewalk by pushing UP.  Jump over the four sets of dogs 
that get in your way.  Now red and blue aliens will be in your way.  Jump 
over the third blue alien to grab the spray can that's above it.  Jump over 
the next blue alien afterwards.  Now count the bushes.  The 6th bush will 
contain a Krusty Head.  From this point on you won't have to worry about 
jumping over obstacles as long as you stay on the top level.  You will have 
to jump occasionally to avoid Jimbo Jones though.  Head right when you reach 
the end.

Spray the bird bath between the two aliens.  To the right is Barney's 
Bowlarama.  Use a rocket to light the sign.  Now run to the right and you 
will be able to run under the three aliens that jump up and down.  Avoid the 
first bush because it has a bee in it.  The bushes around the aliens jumping 
up and down have coins.  The right bush will send a coin in both directions.  
You'll have to be fast to grab both of them.  Now go right and you'll be in 
front of the Kwik E Mart.  Position yourself on top of the first sidewalk 
crack to the left of the green trash cans in the background.  Use a rocket 
and it should hit the "E" in the sign.  A Krusty Head worth 3 extra lives 
will pop up.  Grabbing it will also give you a sound test in your inventory.  
You can use it to sample the sounds from the game.  Now go right and spray 
the bird bath.  Go right some more and you'll be at the Springfield 
Retirement Home.  Stand on the first sidewalk crack to the left of the 
building.  Fire a rocket and you'll hit the purple window shade.  You should 
have all the goals completed now.  If not, then to the right will be two more 
window shades.  To hit the second window shade, stand at the right side of 
the Springfield Retirement Home's sign but make sure you don't pass the sign.  
Fire the rocket from there.  To hit the third window shade, stand just a 
little bit to the right of the first sidewalk crack to the left of the red 
alien.  Fire the rocket from there.  If you want another goal, you can use 
the key at the retirement home's door to warp back to Moe's Tavern.  The 
timer should read 200 by now so you can spray the kid at the theater.  
However you should have enough goals so that won't be necessary.  Head right 
and stop at the last window of the retirement home.  Use the whistle and 
Grandpa will open the window and drop 8 coins down.  Catch them before they 
fall through the ground.  Now head right.  If you have enough goals, you'll 
fight the boss.  If not, a barricade will be in your way.

Boss:  Nelson

Nelson will jump up and down causing the ground to shake.  Jump to avoid 
getting stunned.  He will also throw water balloons at you.  Just stay on the 
far left side and throw balloons at him.  Jump when Nelson throws his own 
balloons at you.  It will take 8 hits before Nelson is defeated.  If you have 
Maggie, she will roll bowling balls towards you.  Jump and touch them to send 
them back at Nelson but be careful not to get hit by Nelson's balloons when 
you're jumping.  It will take 4 hits to defeat Nelson in this way.  Use a 
combination of both to put an end to Nelson even faster.


-------------------------------------
 Level 2:  Springfield Shopping Mall
-------------------------------------
Goal   :  Collect 25 hats
Boss   :  3 Men (sub boss), Ms. Botz
Helper :  Marge

The mall consists of 4 floors.  At the end of each floor is a sub boss 
guarding the escalator up.  Once you go up, you can't go back down so grab 
everything the first time through.  In this level, you'll have to collect 25 
hats.  You can also knock hats off of people you see by hitting them from 
below.  If you hit them on the head, the hat will not come off.  Grab the hat 
that's above the ash can.  Go right and grab another hat but watch out for 
the bouncing donuts.  Next, avoid the marshmallows.  Grab the hat next to 
them.  Avoid two more donuts and you'll be in front of a wet cement pit.  One 
false step and you're dead.  Jump onto the first candy bar platform.  From 
there, jump to the second one.  Now jump up three times on the second candy 
bar platform and it will float across the pit.  You can also jump across the 
pit but that's more difficult.  Grab the Krusty Head on the other side.  Jump 
on the ash can and grab the coin that pops out.  Jump on it once more to get 
a Krusty Head to pop out.  Now grab the hat to the left.  Head right and you 
may want to skip the hat above the candy canes since it is hard to get 
without getting hit.  You can grab it by jumping when the candy cane is at 
its lowest position.  Keep heading right and you'll run into some aliens.  
After the aliens is the sub boss.  He'll try to throw hard candy at you.  
Knock his hat off first.  Then jump on his head three times to defeat him.  
Grab the hat next to the escalator and head for the next floor.

Avoid the pair of sneakers.  Then jump on the ash can.  Now hold DOWN for 2 
seconds and you'll fall down into a hidden room containing 5 hats.  Hold DOWN 
on the ash can in the room to exit.  Now grab the hat to the left of the can.  
Head right until you see another ash can.  Avoid the pair of high heels when 
it gets close.  Jump onto it.  Now jump 2 times.  The next three jumps will 
produce 1 coin each.  Then get off the can.  Jump back onto it.  Jump 2 more 
times.  The next four jumps will produce 1 hat each.  Jump off.  Jump back 
onto it.  Jump 4 more times.  The next jump will produce a Jebediah Head.  
Jump off.  Jump back onto it.  Jump 4 more times.  The next jump will produce 
a Krusty Head.  Jump off.  Jump back onto it.  Jump 10 more times.  The next 
four jumps will produce the signs "RW", "AW", "KW", and "JW" respectively.  
Each sign counts as 1 coin.  Here's the breakdown of the jumps if you're 
still confused.

Action                Result
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Jump onto can         --
Jump 2x               --

Jump 2x               --
Jump 4x               1 hat per jump
Jump off/onto can     --

Jump 1x               Jebediah Head
Jump off/onto can     --
Jump 4x               --
Jump 1x               Krusty Head

Jump 10x              --
Jump 4x               Signs "RW", "AW", "KW", and "JW" (each one is a coin)

Now head right.  Jump on the next ash can twice to get two coins.  Head 
right.  Avoid the cleats and grab the hat.  Grab the Krusty Head and run to 
the right.  Don't stop and you will be able to run under the jumping cleats.  
Keep running and you'll run under some leather boots.  Don't run under the 
third boot because you will get hit.  Proceed to the right some more.  Jump 
on the ash can to get a coin.  Then avoid the spring shoes before you grab 
the hat.  Jump on the next ash can to get another coin.  Avoid the spring 
shoes one more time and grab the hat.  Keep going right and you will fight 
the sub boss.  He's in a big shoe this time.  He will try to jump and squash 
you.  Like the sub boss from before, knock his hat off first.  Then jump on 
his head three times to defeat him.  Grab the hats and you should now have 
enough to meet the goal.  There's plenty of hats upstairs so don't worry if 
you don't have enough.  Now head upstairs.

Jump over the alien as it is moving down to get the hat to the right.  Do the 
same for the next hat.  Now you will come across another ash can.  Jump on it 
and a coin will pop out.  Be careful not to touch the aliens as you chase it.  
Grab it and jump on the can again to make another coin pop out.  Grab it and 
jump on the ash can one more time to get a Krusty Head to pop out.  Grab it 
and then grab the hat to the right if you haven't already done so.  Run to 
the right.  Jump over the box with the woman's feet and run under the box 
with the woman's head.  Grab the Krusty Head at the end.  Now there will be 
some rabbits jumping in and out of a magician's hat.  Grab them without 
touching the rabbits.  Head right where you'll find another ash can that you 
can jump on for a coin.  Watch out for the neck ties though.  To the right is 
another ash can that you can jump on for a coin.  Now you'll come across 
another wet cement pit.  There's no shortcut here so you'll have to carefully 
jump across the magician's wands.  Jump straight up on the rightmost wand to 
make a Jebediah head appear.  Jump onto the wand to the left to grab it and 
head right.  On the other side are some rings that you must jump through.  
Don't touch them or you'll get hurt unless you have the Jebediah Head.  Now 
dodge the magician's wands that are moving up and down.  The ash can between 
the wands has two coins and a Krusty Head you can get by jumping three times.  
Run to the right to fight the sub boss.  This time he will disappear and 
reappear at different locations.  Like all the others, just knock his hat off 
and then jump on his head three times.  Grab the hat and if you have enough 
hats, you will head up the escalator.  If not, then you'll have to backtrack 
to the stores and wait for people wearing hats to pass by.  Upstairs you'll 
fight the boss.

Boss:  Ms. Botz
She will run across the top dropping suitcases down at you.  Jump on top of 
them to send them back up at her.  Five hits will put Ms. Botz out of 
commission.  Marge is of no help in this battle because she will throw rocks 
which knock away the suitcases that you need to hit Ms. Botz with.  Therefore 
try to avoid getting her if you can.


-------------------------------------
 Level 3:  Krustyland Amusement Park
-------------------------------------
Goal   :  Collect 40 balloons
Boss   :  Sideshow Bob
Helper :  Lisa

Bart will now have to collect balloons.  Many will be floating in the air so 
use the slingshot to get them.  Grab the first 2 balloons by the tent.  Head 
right and you'll come across some carnival games that you can play for 1 coin 
each.  You'll get a Krusty Head for winning each game so make sure you play 
them all.  In the first game, you'll have to hit 3 heads in a row to win.  It 
can be horizontal, vertical, or even diagonal.  I suggest you try to hit the 
top row since it is easier than the others.  Practice timing the jumps and 
throws to hit the heads.  Now move on to the next game, the wheel.  Use the 
magnet that you bought from the first level BEFORE you play.  Now pick any 
number.  The magnet will rig the game, thus you are guaranteed to win.  Move 
to the next game which is to pop the balloons.  The colors change each time 
but you'll have to hit either 3 red or 3 blue balloons.  Make sure you can 
hit the balloons at all three heights.  The final game is the shooting 
gallery.  You have 10 seconds and 20 shots to score 100 points.  The timer 
won't start until you make the first shot.  White ducks are worth 10 points.  
Circles are worth 20 points.  Stars are worth 30 points.  Red ducks are worth 
40 points.

Head right and grab the balloons on the tent.  Dodge the bombs that Adil 
throws at you as you head right.  Grab the balloon and slingshot.  Jump to 
avoid the clown that will run at you.  Climb up the ladder.  Use the 
slingshot to defeat Adil at the top.  Now stand where Adil used to be and 
jump to the left.  Land on the plank to ring the bell.  Grab the Jebediah 
Head that appears and then run to the right and grab the 3 coins that fell 
down after you rang the bell.  You can climb back up and do this for more 
coins and more extra lives.  Head right and grab the balloons.  Then, watch 
out for the bombs that the jester throws at you.  Hit the target with your 
slingshot to dunk the jester.  Grab the slingshot.  Head over to the right to 
grab another 2 balloons by the tent.  Now enter the Fun House.

You'll now have to open all the doors in 30 seconds.  You don't have to win 
but you will get 4 balloons if you win.  Opening certain doors will either 
open or close other doors depending on if the other doors were open or 
closed.  Here's how the doors work.  The timer won't start until you open a 
door.

     1  2  3

     4  5  6

     7  8  9

Open Door #     Result
---------------------------------------
1               Open/close doors 1,3,7
3               Open/close doors 1,3,9
7               Open/close doors 1,7,9
9               Open/close doors 3,7,9
2               Open/close doors 1,2,3
4               Open/close doors 1,4,7
6               Open/close doors 3,6,9
8               Open/close doors 7,8,9
5               Open/close doors 2,4,5,6,8

As you can see, opening the middle doors (2,4,6,8) will open or close the 
horizontally/vertically adjacent doors.  Opening the corner doors (1,3,7,9) 
will open or close the horizontally/vertically opposite corner doors.  
Opening door 5 will open or close the doors horizontally/vertically adjacent 
to it.  Let's try an example.  I'll let X stand for closed doors and O stand 
for open doors.

X  O  O       X  X  O       O  X  X       X  X  X       O  O  O

O  X  X  -->  X  O  O  -->  X  O  O  -->  O  O  O  -->  O  O  O

O  X  O       O  O  O       X  O  O       O  O  O       O  O  O

Open          Open          Open          Open
Door 5        Door 1        Door 4        Door 2

Basically the trick is to isolate the doors so the last door you need to open 
is either in a row or in an "L" shape so you can use the corner doors to open 
them.  You'll get four balloons if you win.  Now head to the right where 
you'll find a huge pit and some pipes that make a "hissing" noise.  The noise 
is from the air from the pipes.  There's two ways to cross.  The slower but 
safer way to cross is to wait until the first pipe blows air before you jump 
above it.  The air will keep you floating.  Now slowly move to the right.  
You can lightly tap RIGHT so Bart will slowly move towards the right.  If you 
did it correctly, Bart will move with enough speed so that the pipes will 
blow air when Bart moves above them.  Don't go too fast or too slow because 
if the pipe stops blowing air, then you will fall into the pit and die.  The 
fast and risky way to cross is to position yourself in front of the first pit 
that is to the right of the Itchy & Scratchy doors.  Then do a super jump 
(hold A+B) to the right and immediately do another one when you land AND 
still hold A+B so you'll keep moving fast.  You should be pressing RIGHT the 
entire time.  Your momentum will be enough to carry you over the pit assuming 
you jumped right when the pipe's "hissing" started and held the buttons down.  
If not, then you will fall short of the last platform and die.  On the other 
side, head right.  Jump on the platforms up to the next screen.  Now get on 
top of the platform that is above Krusty's right hair.  Now walk off the 
right side and you'll land on Krusty's mouth.  Jump to grab the Krusty Head 
and you'll enter a hidden room.  Grab the 5 coins and leave.  Now you will be 
outside the mouth again only there will be a red platform that you can use to 
jump to the right.  Head right to leave the Fun House.

Grab the slingshot outside.  Then grab the two balloons by the tent.  Go to 
the right until you see the ferris wheel.  Jump on top of the tent.  From 
there, jump onto one of the carts on the ferris wheel.  It will take you to 
the next screen up.  When you reach the top of the ferris wheel, jump 
straight up and you should fall onto the Krusty Head that's in the middle of 
the ferris wheel.  Now jump to the right and head right to fight the boss if 
you have enough balloons.  If not, then you can either wait for balloons to 
slowly float in the sky or you can use the tent to the right of the ferris 
wheel to warp back to the beginning.  Just stand at the tent window and press 
DOWN.  You'll go into the tent and come out of another tent.  The order is 
from the leftmost tent to the rightmost tent.  When you have enough balloons, 
just head back to fight the boss.

Boss:  Sideshow Bob
Krusty's former sidekick will jump around trying to squash you.  His feet are 
his weakness so jump on them when he lands.  Five hits will defeat Bob.  Lisa 
is useful in this battle because she will rain bowling balls on Bob's head 
from above.  If they hit him, he will get dizzy which exposes his feet for a 
longer time than normal.


-------------------------------------------------
 Level 4:  Springfield Museum of Natural History
-------------------------------------------------
Goal   :  Collect 6 exit signs
Boss   :  Venus Fly Trap (sub boss), Mummy (sub boss), Dinosaur (sub boss), 
          Dr. Marvin Monroe
Helper :  Homer

This is probably the easiest and hardest level in the game.  It's easy 
because you only need to collect 6 exit signs.  It's hard because the level 
has many pits to cross and is more about survival than anything else.  You'll 
need to conserve the dart gun ammo too because ammo is limited.  Head right.  
Jump over the laser.  Jump on the display case three times to get the Krusty 
Head to come out.  Now jump to the picture frame on the left.  Wait for the 
alien to move out of the way before you jump.  Jump to the dart gun.  Use the 
dart gun to get the exit sign to the left.  Now grab the coin that came out 
of the picture frame with the alien.  Jump on the picture frame to the right 
of the display case to get another coin.  Head right.  There will be a laser 
moving from four different heights.  Starting with the topmost laser being 
laser #1 and the lowest being #4, the order is:  2,3,1,4.  Jump when the 
laser #1 flashes.  Do the same thing for the next laser.  Grab the coins in 
the display case by jumping on it.  Shoot the exit sign to the right.  The 
next laser only goes top or bottom.  When the top flashes, jump through.

You'll now be in the jungle.  Avoid the spiders on the ground and climb up 
the tree.  Jump to the left to grab the dart gun.  Climb back up the tree and 
stand on the top rightmost branch.  Jump across the pit of quicksand.  Jump 
across the next tree and you should be standing at the far right branch of 
the tree in front of the water.  Wait for the crocodile to emerge from the 
water.  Then jump onto its head.  Ride the crocodiles across the water.  
Watch out for falling stones.  One false step and you're dead.  On the other 
side shoot the monkey in the tree three times to defeat it.  Then grab the 
dart gun.  Jump across the quicksand pit.  On the other side, walk under the 
spiders.  Now you'll face the first sub boss of the level:  Venus Fly Trap.  
Dodge the rock it spits at you.  Then jump behind it.  It can't hit you 
anymore so just jump on it three times to defeat it.  Now use the dart gun to 
get the exit sign to the left.  You'll see an exit sign above the laser to 
the right that you can't reach.  Head right and get the Jebediah Head from 
the display case.  Jump onto the picture frame with the alien in it.  From 
there, jump and grab the exit sign.  The Jebediah Head will protect you from 
the laser.  Now quickly run to the right and you should be able to pass both 
lasers before your invincibility wears off.  Grab the Krusty Head in the 
display case.  Grab the dart gun to the left of the case.  Now jump onto the 
picture frame to the right.  Stand on the right edge and shoot the exit sign.  
Now head right.  Jump over the laser.

You'll now be heading to the Egyptian exhibit.  The floor should consist of 
gray stones.  DON'T JUMP ON THEM YET!  The gray stones are fake.  You will 
fall to your death if you jump on them.  Wait for a stone to turn red before 
you jump on it.  Follow the red stones across the floor.  On the other side 
is a huge pit.  The stones in the wall will come out and form steps you can 
jump on to cross.  The stones will come out and disappear in a short time so 
jump when you see the platform.  There will be green hands trying to knock 
you into the pit.  On the other side of the pit will be snake baskets.  Jump 
over the cobras and watch out for the three floor spikes.  Then head right.  
You've seemed to have reached a dead end.  What's worse is that scarabs are 
raining down from the sky.  To proceed, you'll have to elevate the brown 
stone pillar in the middle of the floor.  You can do so by jumping at the 
statues and grabbing the ankhs that pop out.  Grab six of them and then jump 
on the stone pillar.  The screen will shake and rubble will fall down.  Avoid 
the rubble and head right once the stone pillar sinks back into the floor.  
Watch out for the three floor spikes.  Now jump over the two dogs to fight 
the sub boss.  The mummy will throw its bandages at you.  Jump on its head 
three times to defeat it.

Head right.  Grab the Jebediah Head from the display case.  Then grab the 
dart gun on the picture frame to the left.  To get both exit signs you must 
jump and fire a dart from the picture frame.  Run to the left so the exit 
signs shows up before the dart flies off the screen.  Now jump on the two 
picture frames to the right of the display case to get a coin from each.  
Then get the Krusty Head from the display case.  Grab the dart gun from the 
picture frame to the right.  Now pass through the laser to enter the dinosaur 
exhibit.  Run to the right to avoid the meteorites that fall from the sky.  
When you reach the river, wait for the rock to float down.  Use it to jump 
across the river.  On the other side head right until you reach the tar pits.  
One false step and you'll sink to your death.  Jump across the skeletons and 
the dinosaur heads while avoiding the pterodactyls and tar bubbles.  Take 
your time and you shouldn't have too much difficulty crossing.  Just watch 
out for the pterodactyls.  At the end of the tar pits is another sub boss, 
the dinosaur.  It will spit a fireball at you.  Avoid the fireball and then 
walk to the far right.  You can't hit the dinosaur at this height so jump to 
the right to land on ledge 1.  Then jump straight up to land on ledge 2.  
Although it looks like there is no solid ground, you will in fact land on 
solid ground.  You should be standing in front of the dinosaur's nose.  Now 
jump from there onto the dinosaur's head.  You'll ricochet off.  Try to land 
on top of its head.  Wait for the beast to spit a fireball out before you 
jump back down.  Now do this two more times to defeat the dinosaur.

               -)  <-- ledge 2
             -)
              -)
               -)  <-- ledge 1
             -)
------------)      <-- ground level

Now jump onto the dinosaur's back.  Jump and grab the exit sign to the right.  
The display case has nothing this time.  Walk past the two lasers which both 
use the 2,3,1,4 order.  Now fight the boss of the level.

Boss:  Dr. Marvin Monroe

The doctor will send shocking pulses of electricity on the floor towards you.  
Jump to avoid them.  Then quickly counter with three stomps on Monroe's head.  
This will put an end to his medical practice.  Homer is a big help in the 
fight since he drops towels to stop the electricity.


-------------------------------------------
 Level 5:  Springfield Nuclear Power Plant
-------------------------------------------
Goal   :  Collect 16 power rods
Boss   :  None
Helper :  All the Simpsons

In this final level, all the Simpsons will be on hand to assist you.  Homer 
will eliminate all the onscreen enemies but you'll need a box of donuts to 
summon him.  Marge will take any rods you're carrying at that moment to the 
basement.  Lisa tells you the combination for each floor although you can 
figure it out by trial and error too.  Maggie plays an important role so keep 
an eye out for her.  Her location is random every time you play so search 
everywhere.  You'll need to collect 16 power rods and return them to the 
basement.  However, you can only carry 4 at a time so you'll need to make 
several trips.  The plant is divided into 6 floors (B, 1-5).

Before we begin, let me remind you to keep an eye out for Maggie.  Remember 
her location when you find her.  From the 1st floor elevator, go right.  Lisa 
will give you the combination for the 1st floor (14).  Grab the rod.  Head 
left now.  Use the combination "14" to open the door.  Grab the box of 
donuts.  Keep going left until you reach the door.  Grab the rod.  Go 
upstairs to the 2nd floor.  Grab the Krusty Head.  Head right and grab the 
rod.  Go upstairs to the 4th floor.  Grab the box of donuts.  Go upstairs to 
the 5th floor.  Grab the rod to the right.  Now go downstairs to the 3rd 
floor.  Grab the box of donuts and head right.  Use the combination "11" to 
pass.  When you reach the elevator, Marge will take your rods away.  Take the 
elevator to the 2nd floor.  Head left and Lisa will give you the combination 
for the 2nd floor (32).  Keep going left to reach another elevator.  This 
elevator only goes to the 2nd or 4th floors.  Take it to the 4th floor.  Head 
right and grab the rod.  Now head left and grab the rod there.  Lisa will 
give you the combination for the 4th floor (41).  Now take the elevator back 
down to the 2nd floor.  Head right to the elevator.  Take it up to the 4th 
floor.  Grab the Krusty Head and the rod to the right.  Now take the elevator 
up to the 5th floor.  Go left and use the combination "21" to pass.  Grab the 
rod on the other side.  Now head back to the elevator.  Go down to the 
basement.  You are halfway done now.

Go to the 2nd floor.  Go right and use the combination "32" to pass.  Go 
upstairs to the 3rd floor.  Grab the rod.  Now go upstairs to the 4th floor.  
Head left and use the combination "41" to pass.  Grab the rod on the other 
side.  Head back to the stairs.  Go upstairs to the 5th floor.  Grab the box 
of donuts to the left.  Now go downstairs to the 1st floor.  Grab the rod to 
the right of the stairs.  Now go back upstairs to the 2nd floor.  Go left to 
reach the elevator.  Go down to the basement.  Now go back up to the 2nd 
floor.  Head for the stairs to the right.  Go downstairs to the 1st floor.  
Head left to reach an elevator.  This elevator only goes to the 1st, 3rd, and 
5th floors.  Take the elevator to the 3rd floor.  Grab the rod to the right.  
Go left and Lisa will give you the combination for the 3rd floor (11).  Grab 
the rod next to her.  Now head back to the elevator and take it up to the 5th 
floor.  Grab the Krusty Head.  Head right and Lisa will give you the 
combination for the 5th floor (21).  Grab the rod next to her.  Now head 
left.  Grab the rod that you find there.  Head back for the elevator.  Go 
down to the 1st floor.  Head right and take the stairs up to the 2nd floor.  
Go left to the elevator.  Take the elevator to the basement.  You've now 
found 15 of the 16 rods.  However, you'll notice that the entire power plant 
has been searched.  So where is the 16th rod?  Well, remember that I said to 
keep an eye out for Maggie?  Well, her pacifier is the 16th rod.  Her 
location is random each time you play but since I covered the entire plant, 
you should have passed by her at some point.  Just walk up to her.  She'll 
throw the 16th rod (pacifier) into the reactor and the game is finished.


=============================================================================
 VIII.  TIPS AND CODES
=============================================================================
------
 Tips
------
Try jumping on things, around things, and on top of things.  You never know 
what will turn up.

In Springfield, try to discover what ledges Bart can stand on.  Jump to the 
left of the awning that says "Wet Paint" to discover a hidden ledge.  Press 
down to drop down and receive a 1-up.

Moviegoers will come out of the theater at 2 and 4 p.m.  Spray them!

There are lots of ways to get rid of purple-colored objects.  Be creative and 
experiment.

At the mall, Bart can't jump on a lollipop if its stick is pointed straight 
up or down.

Press and hold DOWN on the second ash can on the mall's 2nd floor to enter a 
hidden hat room.  Other ash can's hide coins and other things.  Jump many 
times to make them appear.

To easily cross the pit of wet cement, jump on the second candy wrapper 3 
times.  It will float across the pit.

There are warp zones in level 1 and 3.  In level 1, use the key at the 
Springfield Retirement Home's front door to warp back to Moe's Tavern.  This 
is useful to spray the moviegoers.  In level 3, use the ticket booth near the 
end of Krustyland to warp back to the first tent.
