The Simpsons: Hit & Run takes players on a trip through the colorful streets of Springfield in a mission-based racing game with the
ability to continue objectives on foot. Something is amiss in Springfield, as strange crop circles have been reported and people
are suddenly disappearing. After Homer notices a mysterious satellite-equipped van parked outside his home, he takes it upon
himself to discover the truth behind these unsettling events. A total of 17 characters are available for the mission-based driving
sequences, with Homer, Marge, Lisa, Bart, and Apu able to leave their cars and enter such buildings as Moe's Tavern, the
Kwik-E-Mart, Kamp Krusty, and the Springfield Power Plant. To lend a degree of authenticity to the game, the animated show's
original cast recorded the voice-overs for their respective characters
Gameplay: Hit & Run has seven levels, each with missions and a unique plot. The player can only control one specific character in
each level. The game's playable characters are Homer Simpson, Bart Simpson, Lisa Simpson, Marge Simpson, and Apu
Nahasapeemapetilon. When travelling by foot, the player character can walk, run, and perform several attacks: a normal kick, a
jumping kick, and a smashing move. To drive, the player can either commandeer one of the vehicles that litter the road, a
feature taken from Grand Theft Auto 3,or use a phone booth to select a car. The game's driving missions are also similar to those
of Grand Theft Auto 3. In both games, the player races against other characters, collects items before a timer runs out, and
wreck other cars.
From the Manufacturer: The Simpsons Hit & Run is a mission-based driving game featuring out-of-the-car platform action, the
interactive world of Springfield,and the signature humor of the Simpsons. To create the most authentic Simpsons game yet,
dialogue and story were crafted by writers from The Simpsons television show and all character voices are supplied by the actual
cast. In the roles of Homer, Bart, Lisa, Marge, and Apu, players explore seven large levels by car or on foot and compete in more
than 56 missions. In addition to the GTA-style driving action, Simpsons fans will also find tons of hidden pick-ups containing trivia
material from the show's 300-plus episodes.
