LEVEL:    College
MINIGMAE: Tennis
WHERE:    Tennis Courts
HOW:      Hit the ball and score points

You play someone called Bjorn. Serve by pressing any button and use the 
D-Pad to control yourself. Use X to swing back. The closer you are to 
the ball when you swing, the faster the ball goes. If you notice, he 
will almost hit the ball back to you every time. The only time you can 
score points is if you do a fast hit, plus left or right, this will 
cause it to go to the side very fast and he wont be able to get it. You 
need to win 4 points before he wins 4 points. Try and avoid slow hits, 
and always move to where the ball is going to go and try and get a fast 
hit to win a point.

LEVEL:    College
MINIGAME: Garbage days
WHERE:    In the garbage truck
HOW:      Go up the ramps and collect the money

Hop in the garabage truck, and then the minigame Grabage days will come 
up. Money will appear on the wires above you. Use the ramps and do vert 
tricks and get some money. There is like millions of cash actually on 
the wires, but sadly it only lets you collect a certain amoun tbefore 
it's says "You have collected all the money available for this 
minigame," even if there are more cash above you on the wires. You can 
transfer between the garbage trucks if you want to, but the money can be 
gotten any way in the amount of time, for example, you could go to the 
parking garage and jump onto the wires to collect some of the money.

LEVEL:    College
MINIGAME: Wire Grinding
WHERE:    Lip trick transformer box
HOW:      Grind the electric wires

Look away from the colliesium heading up the road. Keep going up and you 
will reach a sporting good store, just after this on the left will be an 
opening with a little ramp, lip trick the power box to start the 
minigame. Don't hold the lip trick for long. You will see that the power 
lines above you light up and a percentage goes up. Go up tho the car-
park, and grind one of those electric wires and try and get the 
percentage down to 0 in green. Keep grinding the powered ones. Try to 
stay on the powerlines unless the lines end. I done this by luck, as I 
accidently fell, and it still counted that i was on the powerline.

LEVEL:    San-fransisco
MINIGAME: Save the seals
WHERE:    Look through viewfinder
HOW:      Continuously tap the X button  

Go to the pier to get this one, and you will see two viewfinders. To 
start the mini-game, head to the viewfinder on the left. The other ones 
show prisoners in a cell running around, I think that is at alcatraz. 
Anyway, if you love button bashing, then this is your type of minigame, 
and game actually. What you have to do is continually tap the X button 
to help the seals get away from the shark. To do this continuosly press 
the X button, but don't hold. Keep doing it until you win. You will need 
to learn button bashing for this, so play some games where you need to 
do it, this game is an examppe of one actaully, well it hurts my fingers 
playing this.

LEVEL:    Alcatraz
MINIGAME: Baseball
WHERE:    Little baseball pitch
HOW:      Hit the ball

THe minigame is found on the baseball field near where you get the pro 
score challenge. Also, it is near that big target range that bag sets 
up, but he will only be ther if you can complete the dunk 30 tourists 
objective. All you have to do is hit the ball, sounds simple. Well 
really it is. Just let the ggghhhhhooooosssstttt pitch the ball and then 
just time it right and whack the ball back over his head. To score 
money, the ball must go up in the air and over the wall or whatever. You 
get $25 per good shot, so this game can keep you entertained for awhile 
on hand.

LEVEL:    London
MINIGAME: Bitch slapping
WHERE:    Under the bridge
HOW:      Pick the winner

Really, this is a boring minigame, it involves nothing at all as in 
movement, all you have to do is pick the winner. Yawn. The pimp can be 
found under the bridge, near the section where you are tought the 
flatland tricks by the pro skater. Press O next to the pimp to start 
this. For me, I always bet on the lady on the left. Press left to choose 
her, or press right to select the other slut. The fight will begin. 
There really isn't any strategy for this, because the winner is always 
random. If you win, yay! If you lose, go away and come back. The 
minigame can be repeated afew times.

LEVEL:    Zoo
MINIGAME: Charging rhinos
WHERE:    Rhino's cage
HOW:      Pick the winner

This can be found in the rhinos cage, it really isn't a cage, it's got a 
trench thing around the outside which is used as a vert rampp. Go up to 
the zoo keeper that is by the rhinis. This is once again boring, all you 
do is pick the winner, nothing to do with using your skateboard or 
anything like that. All you have to do is pick the winner. Either the 
left rhini, the right rhino, or both of them to fall down. You have a 
%33.33 chance of winning. The winner(s) are random, so pick which one 
you want to. You lose NO money if you don't pick the winner.

LEVEL:    Zoo
MINIGAME: Catch the eggs
WHERE:    Bird avery
HOW:      Catch the eggs as they fall down

The 'How' explains it all. Just simply catch the eggs as they fall down. 
But really, it isn't that simple, it requires GREAT co-ordination of the 
eyes. Start the minigame, and then keep your eyes peeled on the screen, 
do not take them off, if someone offers you 1 million dollars while your 
playing this, tell them to piss off, this mini-game is more importent. 
Keep em peeled. When you seem something move on the screen, move your 
player that way, the bird eggs can drop very quickly, so keep your eyes 
peeled. Keep moving your player left to right catching the eggs that 
fall down.

LEVEL:    Zoo
MINIGAME: monkey Poo Dodge
WHERE:    Through door near giraffes
HOW:      Dodge the monkey poo as they throw it (eww)

To find the giraffes cage, it is just neat to the snakc bar, on the 
opposite side than the rhino and elephant cage. Go through the door. The 
monkeys through poo mat you, and you simply have to dodge it for 30 
seconds. Saty where you are, and when you see a monkey winding up for a 
shot with there poo, move out the way. Sometimes they wont even throw 
the poo directly at you, just avoid wherever it is thrown. Only the 
first monkey will through it at the start, but as time passes on, the 
second monkey will throw, and then all the monkeys will throw the poo 
making it harder.

LEVEL:    Carnival
MINIGAME: Log Sawing Compeition
WHERE:    Log sawing place
HOW:      Saw through the log

From the start of the level, head left to where the logs are and speak 
to the guy. To saw through the law, use left to saw left, and right to 
saw back right. Get the timing right of when you have made a clean scut, 
so then you can move the saw back to get a better cut. So press left to 
move the saw away from you and press right to move it back towards you. 
When you cut through a log, press the X button to replace it. Keep 
cutting through all the logs until a note comes up on screen saying that 
you have either won, or lost. Unfortuantely, there is no money given out 
for this mini-game.

LEVEL:    Carnival
MINIGAME: Target Shooting
WHERE:    Target side-show
HOW:      Hit the targets

From the strt, head left and hug the wall. Go around to the sideshows 
and find the shooting one. The target will move by itself, it is just 
your job to press the right button. When the cross-hair moves over 
something with a button picture on it, press that button. It's as simple 
as that to do. Don't waste shots, and try to actually just aim for the 
one traget and keep waiting until the cursor moves over it. Money ios 
paid for when you hit the target. But also, stationary targets are less 
points that moving targets. You get a ranking at the end as well, keep 
playing it until you can get really good and not miss a shot.
