The Simpsons: Hit & Run Tips
Back to top
Okay on your way to the Power Plant you will encounter a Alien Car. Well when
it comes at you it shoudl miss you for some reason giving you a perfect
opportunity to accelerate off as fast as possible and get away from it. On
your return to the school with the Chemical Waste in the car use all known
shortcuts and basically do what i said in mission 5 to avoid hitting things
and to use the shortcuts. If you are having problems going through the
Cemtary cos you keep hitting the side i say go slowly up the hill / ramp and
just clear it, this will give you enough time to control your landing and
get through the gap.

As you start
you should find it quite easy to get to the Power Plant first just avoid a Hit
and Run cos they are a pain in the ass. Read the hint i wrote above about the
Chemical Waste and when you are all ready to set off then go. Go through the
little farm and then over the mud hill to the Flames of Death. Go through the
caravans and over the Cemtary and when you go past the Simpsons House a Alien
Car will appear. Go right and through someones drive where the tool [wrench]
is. Actually go around the Krusty Glass and not through it cos you will crash
into the Alien Car if you do so i advice not too. Its quite simple to lose the
Alien Car but once you have done that you only have 30 seconds to get to the
School Playground, You might want to delibretly let the Alien Car follow you
for a bit so you can drive closer to the school and still ahve 30 seconds. When
the Alien Car is gone drive like crazy to the school and try your best to avoid
traffic. When going up the little ramp to the School Playground go slowly or
you will lose control and crash into the fence. Good Luck.

When you get Hit and run (that's when it says "Hit and Run" on the screen, when damage meter is red) go inside a house, a store, or anything accessible to go inside in. The cops will try to get in, but they'll either explode, or go away. Use this especially on non-timed missions, so you won't get busted and lose 50 coins.
Go to Mr.Burns's with a car go in his house and go through the buzz cola sign keep going straight then youre at a checkerboard full of money everywhere

In Level 2 with Bart, mission 4, where you need to destroy all cell phone users, instead of using the Honor Roller, Bart's rocket car, use the Mr. Plow truck, or, even better, the Plow King. They won't get destroyed as quick, and the cell phone users will get destroyed quicker.
Set the date on the GameCube's internal clock to Christmas (12/25). When you enter the game's menu screen (Homer snoozing on the couch), Homer will be dressed in a Santa suit and there will be a Christmas tree in the corner of the room.
In a mission where you are required to destroy a vehicle, one of the best cars to use would be Marge's Canynaro. If however you don't have a Canyenaro car because you haven't beaten level 4, just use a normal car and try to hit them into the sides. Let them go ahead of you then cut around a corner and collide into the side of them and keep driving so they end up hitting a wall. This can cause a lot of damage if done correctly.

With any race mision, evade mission, or destroy missions, you can use the YYXX code. (Its the 1 hit vehicle explosion code) You can use it to eliminate the competition in any kind of race, destroy a vehicle way more quicker in the destroy missions, and destroy a car then drive away in an evade mission.

If the police are after you, pause the game, go to misson select, and choose a mission in a different level. The police will be gone.
Set the date on the GameCube's internal clock to New Year's Day (1/1). Various game changes will occur to reflect the holiday.
If you are having trouble with a mission, keep failing until a third option pops up on the fail screen called ''Skip''. Pressing this automaticaly advances you to the next mission

When playing the game, and if you are near zombies, remember that zombies count in hit and run too. That means that if you run one over, that's more yellow on the meter before you get some police cars trying to chase you down.

I discovered this when I had already beaten the game the first time. What you do is crash alot of cars and cause enough destruction until you do get a Hit and Run. Then, immediately go to mission select and select any mission from the list (I'm not sure if you have to stay on the same level or not). When the mission loads up, you'll notice your Hit and Run meter is still flashing as though the cops are chasing you, yet there are no cops! Jump in your vehicle before the meter runs back down and start smashing! The meter will continue to refill and stay flashing, but you will NOT get a Hit and Run and the cops will NOT chase you! Now you can destroy as many cars and items as you want for some quick cash - this was vital for me in completing the game quickly to 100%. Just don't let that meter fall below the flashing point or you'll have to repeat the whole process!
Boot up your game and go into system settings / options. Now go to the time settings and change the date to various special days of the year. Like 25th December or 31st October or to 31st December and you should see some suprising features changed in the game.

To drive a flaming car you first have to choose the car you want. Then crash it until the smoke coming out of your car is black. Then go to a phone and select the car you chose. It should say ''damaged: 100 percent.'' If not crash a bit more. If it does say 100 percent, choose the car. The car will be on fire and you can drive it around, but if you hit anything it will explode.
First go to the options menu and use the cheat for \"Press horn to jump\". Hold R+L and type the following xxxy.
On level three, drive to the observatory and follow the road down the hill till you find a pond with a waterfall. Then drive and face the pond with the waterfall opposite from the ocean, then use Z to jump into the pond. You will re-spawn on a ledge but don\'t move. Then push jump one more time and you should land in the ocean. You can drive around forever and one of my favorite things to do is get the speedometer code and both faster car codes and drive up as far as you can go out into the ocean and rev the motor and see how fast you can go. I think the highest is 700! And if you want to get out just go to mission select. NOTE: All the codes are on this site as well as one other on neoseeker...
My friend Nick found this cheat and if you have any problems or questions contact me at Timmy_Wrinkle@Yahoo.com
First at the main menu go to options and hold L+R and press Y, Y, X, X. You should hear a beeping sound. Then press Y, A, Y, A. You should hear the beeping again. Then go to any level and drive around with any car. Try to hit as many other cars as possible. Every car you hit should give you ten coins when without hurting your car. The cars you hit will blow up in one hit which is sort of funny. Trust me I have over 10,000 coins.

To get to Mr.Burns' backyard in the first level WITH a car, you will need the horn jump cheat. Go to the part where the entrance to Mr.Burns' backyard is blocked off and make sure your car is FACING the roadblock or else you'll probably bounce off a wall or something. If you do this properly, you'll be driving in Mr.Burns' backyard. If you get a Hit & Run, don't worry. The cops can't get you from the backyard. Just make sure you don't leave the backyard the same way you came in with the Hit & Run in effect, or else the cops will come and kick your ass.
