I dedicate this FAQ to Jesse "Snow Dragon" Eubanks.  You have been (and are)
a good friend, so I dedicate this to you as you start taking big steps in
life out into the unknown.  Good luck man, and remember that you still owe
Dave and I a visit! ;)

This one is dedicated to the Angry Video Game Nerd (aka James Rolfe) as 
well, as his reviewing old NES games makes me remember why I got into FAQ 
writing in the first place; to tribute the oldschool NES library.  He and I 
may use different methodologies in our glorifying of the Nintendo 
Entertainment System, but we both love what is definitely the greatest video 
game system ever made.

Also, for Cougar, Howler, and Koonce.  I miss you, and I hope you are living
it up in the afterlife as you did in this world.  You will always be in my 
memories, and you will never be forgotten.

1) The following is taken directly from the Bart vs. The Space Mutants 
   Instruction Booklet and is in no way the work of Brian P. Sulpher:


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.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
---------------------------------Controls-----------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

2) This section will examine the controls to use to save the entire world from
   the twisted efforts of the diabolical Space Mutants!


D-Pad...: LEFT and RIGHT will move Bart in the corresponding direction 
          pressed.  UP is used to enter doors and elevators, while DOWN will
          allow Bart to exit door and elevators.

SELECT..: Cycles through the Items that Bart has in his possession.

START...: Makes use of the selected Item.

A Button: Press this to leap into the air, holding it down to jump a bit
          higher.  When held down, Bart can run by pressing LEFT or RIGHT.
          Pressed with the B Button will cause Bart to use a very high jump.

B Button: If a Spray Can or weapon are in Bart's possession, he can shoot 
          them with this.  He also can use keypads/elevators in the power 
          plant.  Pressed with the A Button will cause Bart to use a very 
          high jump.

----------------------------------Basics------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

3) This section will go over some basics of the gameplay, outlining how to
   better understand how the game operates.


                                 o-------o
                                 | Goals |
                                 o-------o

On each level, Bart must obtain a certain amount of items, which the Space
Mutants need to complete their taking over of the world.  ON each level it 
is a different object, so pay attention to what the Space Mutants have to
say before each level.  If the Goal counter is NOT 0 when the end of the 
level is reached, then a barrier will appear to block Bart from advancing,
forcing him to backtrack and try to find some missed Goals.


                                 o-------o
                                 | Coins |
                                 o-------o

These have two purposes in the game; the first is for buying stuff/playing
games, and the second is to gain extra lives.  For an extra life, Bart must
collect a total of 15 Coins, which must all still be in his possession (ie 
not spent to that point), and the number of Coins he has will drop down to
5.


                             o----------------o
                             | Family Members |
                             o----------------o

In each of the first four levels Bart can get a family member to assist him
in his quest, but he must first knock out enough aliens in disguise (scan 
with the X-Ray Specs to make sure they are in disguise or just regular 
humans, who are to be left alone) to reveal evidence of the Spacer Mutants 
presence (in the form of small spheres that drop to the ground), spelling 
out the name of the family member on that particular level, which will get 
them to assist Bart in his battles with the Boss of each area.  The final 
level will have each Simpson contributing to the cause in their own way.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------Walkthrough---------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

4) This section will cover the various levels, looking at Items Needed (note
   this is minimal requirements, extra is always good to have if at all 
   possible), Enemies, and the Walkthrough.

                               ~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Bee....: Hiding in some bushes, these foes will pop out and zoom right at
         Bart for disturbing their peaceful concealment.

Dogs...: Found marching along in pairs when Bart is skateboarding, they will
         try to run into the eldest Simpson child in an effort to hurt him.
         Note that Cherry Bombs and Whistle blasts will also intrigue these
         beasts, drawing a solitary canine into the area to try and attack 
         Bart.

Glondip: The four legged foes will patrol on the ground, moving back and 
         forth along the ground, attempting to force Bart into going past
         their ambushes with great care.

Mutants: Human beings that have been overtaken by the Space Mutants, they
         walk along as a normal human would.  To tell if they are Mutants,
         use the X-Ray Specs to scan them, killing them off by jumping on
         their heads, driving them off and gaining some proof of their
         presence (to get the level's family member on your side).

Zebloid: Coming in both red and blue varieties, these one eyed foes will try
         to occupy areas where Bart will have to try and bypass their 
         blockades with tricky jumps and small walking areas.

                             ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
                           ~~~~ Walkthrough ~~~~
                             ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Start off by going right to take a moving leap off of the top of the 
trashcan, vaulting through the air to the right, snagging the Krusty The 
Clown Icon for a 1-Up.  Continue on to the right to go past the theatre, 
moving through the Zebloid blockade, jumping onto the window near Moe's Bar,
leaping out to the left to snag the Spray Can, followed by leaping up near 
the right-most Zebloid and spraying the purple Space Mutants 4 sign.  Work
back to the left to the first trashcan in the game, spray painting it red 
(keep spraying until it changes colour), followed by back to the right,
going past Moe's Bar, and then using the pay phone (select a coin and use 
it).  After the call infuriates Moe, spray the guy who comes out of the bar,
jumping up on top of the phone booth to avoid getting damaged by his 
reckless charge, and run right across the line to cover up two more purple 
objects.

Keep leaping across the window ledges to get a second Spray Can, dropping
down to spray the trashcan below to make it not purple.  Head right and do
not leap in front of the first bush (it hides a Bee), but do leap in front
of the second, third, and last bush in this area, getting the Coins that 
they hide, carefully dodging the Zebloids in the process.  Enter Tool World 
and purchase a Wrench and a Key (though this is optional, it is a good 
back-up in case some of the stunts Bart has to pull in this level fail), 
followed by turning the Wrench on the nearby fire hydrant to spray the wet
paint off of the awning, making sure to spraypaint the fire hydrant 
afterwards.  Jump onto the nearby window ledge and go jump onto the window 
in the door, leaping onto the higher ledge, jumping up to spray the 
flowerpot, leading into Bart going to Mel's Novelty Hut, where he should buy
a single Cherry Bomb and SIX Rockets (feel free to get extra if you are a 
poor shot, but save your money otherwise and only get six).

Use the window ledge to leap onto the window on Mel's door, jumping to the
right to get a clear shot at the flowerpot on the ledge, followed by going
right under the Zebloid to get the Krusty The Clown Icon for a 1-Up.  Go 
down to the sidewalk, moving into the Toys 'N Stuff to buy a Whistle and a 
Magnet, followed by using the window ledges here to get onto the window of 
the door, drilling the flowerpot with some red paint before going right past
the blue Zebloids, grabbing an insurance Spray Can from the window ledge.  
Head right, ignoring the ball on the ground (though it can be used to hit 
the can of paint above, it is not necessary) to spray the trashcan before
bouncing up to the window ledge above, leaping left (hitting the can of 
paint, taking care of the purple awning) to get onto the ledge where a 
flowerpot resides, so to spray it Bart must jump off the ledge and land on 
the window in the door, leaping up to spray said flowerpot.

Go right to the front window of the pet shop, getting onto the ledge before
using the Cherry Bomb to scare away the purple bird, which will also bring a
Dog into the area, so be careful.  leap past the Zebloid and use the window
on the door, getting to the higher ledge, where a leap and a well aimed 
spray of red paint will take care of the flowerpot.  Go right to leap up at 
the first bush, tracking the Coin that flies out as it heads left, followed
by leaping onto the grass in the background (near the sign), running right 
to drop off of the grass, spraying the purple cop, followed by hopping back
onto the grass, using the extra height to leap over the charging foe as he 
runs off the screen.  Head right a tad to see a purple bird resting on the 
the outstretched arm of the statue of Jebediah Springfield, so position Bart
directly on the second crack in the sidewalk to the left of the bases of the
statue, letting a Rocket fly (activate it, then step forward to light the 
fuse), sending the Rocket upwards in an arc to send the bird off.

Jump onto the skateboard and leap the approaching sets of Dogs, positioning 
Bart at the top of the sidewalk, leaping the Zebloids as you approach them, 
grabbing another Spray Can while doing so.  Once the Zebloids start to 
position themselves in the middle of the sidewalk, Jimbo Jones will enter
the sidewalk, and he will attempt to run into Bart.  Avoid him by going full
speed to the right, leaping into the air every time Jimbo draws near from 
behind, though no action is needed when he attacks from the front.  Once 
past the barrier, move off to the right to spray the birdbath in between the
Zebloids, followed by using a Rocket just short of the next Zebloid set, 
launching said Rocket into Barney's Bowlorama sign, turning it red.  
Continue moving to the right to pass under the three Zebloids with a running
gait, remembering to NOT jump in front of the bush (as it contains a Bee),
but keep an eye out along the bushes by the two Zebloids for Coins that fly
both left and right.  When the next duo of Zebloids appear, stand right
beside them and launch a Rocket at the "E" in Kwik-E-Mart, running under the
Zebloids to catch the Krusty The Clown Icon for a 3-Up (and the Sound Test
item)!

On the right is a patrolling Glondip, so walk behind it as it moves right,
spraying the birdbath to change it to red before retreating to the left, 
followed by going over the Glondip to find the Springfield Retirement Home,
where three purple shades will need to be hit with Rockets, each one 
counting as a Goal.  Now, if the walkthrough has been followed correctly, 
enough Goals will have been collected.  However, if some Goals have been
missed, now it is time to use the Key on the door of the Retirement Home, as
it will send Bart back to the Movie Theatre, where two potential Goals can 
be obtained, with a person wearing purple will exit when the timer hits 400 
and 200, so spray the kid, leaping over the charging foe that dashes 
outwards.  Finally, one last trick remains in the Retirement Home, as Bart 
should go to the right side of the building, standing under the last column
of windows, blowing on the Whistle, which will reveal Grandpa Simpson, who 
will begin to toss Coins (which disappear as they hit the sidewalk), so 
collect as many as possible while they fall.  When you are ready, head to 
the right, entering into the BOSS FIGHT!

                             ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
                           ~~~~ Nelson Muntz ~~~~
                             ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Nelson Muntz is the biggest and baddest bully Bart has ever faced, and he is
back to torture Bart once more.  Muntz attacks by flinging water balloons 
through the air in an arc, trying to hit Bart, and he can also freeze Bart
in place temporarily by stomping the ground after he leaps.  Bart should 
leap into the air to avoid the paralyzing earthquake while flinging his own
water balloons back at Nelson (use the B Button to do so), jumping to avoid
the incoming water balloons.  If M-A-G-G-I-E is spelled out, Bart's baby 
sister will float in the sky, throwing bowling balls to the left, where Bart
can leap up to smack them towards Nelson.  It takes 8 water balloons or 3 
bowling balls to defeat the bully, though a combination of the two will take
him down even faster.  Defeat this badass to move on to the Springfield
Shopping Mall!

                               ~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Candy Cane..........: Moving up and down, Candy Canes will try to get Bart 
                      as he runs and leaps around the hypnotizingly coloured
                      foes.

Diaper..............: Often appearing in groups, Diapers will bounce around,
                      looking to hit Bart in the face.  It is best to 
                      carefully bypass the pseudo obstacle course that they
                      create.

Donut...............: Appearing in pairs, these fried dough rings will 
                      bounce across the mall floor, looking to strike Bart.
                      Run under them as they bounce along, staying grounded 
                      as leaping over them is not a very smart thing to do.

Glondip.............: The four legged foes will bounce up and down, looking
                      to land upon the head of our hero.

Magician's Assistant: A victim of her boss, her leg will come at Bart first,
                      followed by her hopping upper body.

Marshmallow.........: Like Glondips, Marshmallows bounce around and try to 
                      strike Bart, so pass by them carefully.

Mutants.............: Human beings that have been overtaken by the Space 
                      Mutants, they walk along as a normal human would.  To 
                      tell if they are Mutants, use the X-Ray Specs to scan 
                      them, killing them off by jumping on their heads, 
                      driving them off and gaining some proof of their 
                      presence (to get the level's family member on your 
                      side).

Neckties............: Floating along the third floor, they will continually
                      move higher into the air, so hang back to let them 
                      float away.

Rabbit..............: Leaping in and out of magician hats, run under them to
                      get past and to get a hat.

Ring................: Careful leaps through these floating obstacles is the 
                      only way past, so use the Super Jump to make it 
                      through their openings.

Shoes...............: Coming in many types, they hop, prance, run, and 
                      moonwalk at Bart, trying to damage the youth.  Avoid 
                      them as best as possible, using trashcans when 
                      possible to aid in avoiding them.

Wands...............: Much like Candy Canes, Wands move up and down and try
                      to physically hurt Bart.  Move under them and leap 
                      over them, not messing around with them too much.

                             ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
                           ~~~~ Walkthrough ~~~~
                             ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Keep in mind that some humans (mutant possessed or not) can be wearing a 
hat, so to gain possession of said hat, simply jump up and hit the hat from 
below, followed by stomping the mutant or avoiding the head of the human 
(X-Ray Specs should be used before jumping on them).  Use the trashcan as a
stepping stone to go after the hat floating above, followed by going right 
to find a hat on the ground, just short of two bouncing Donuts.  After 
getting past a second Donut pair, bouncing Diapers must be passed by going 
under and jumping over the possessed objects, arriving at another hat.  Go 
under the incoming Donuts to find a large swathe of wet cement (which kills
in one touch), so make the leap onto the floating Candy ahead, and then onto
the second Candy.  At this point a decision is needed, as an easy 
shortcut can be taken here (recommended, as the regular way is rather 
difficult) or the regular way across can be done, remembering that the 
Lollipop ledges can only be stepped on if the stick portion is not pointing
directly up or down.

Taking the floating Candy is the best way to go, so leap up and down on it 
three times to make it suddenly start off towards the right, where Bart can 
try to get two hats as he goes along, followed by waiting for the end of the
trip, as he can leap off the falling Candy to the right, grabbing a Krusty 
The Clown Icon for a 1-Up.  Head right and go under the two Donuts, jumping 
onto the trashcan to release a Coin, then leap onto it again to release a
Krusty The Clown Icon.  After getting the hat using the trashcan as a 
stepping stone, move right to go under and leap over some Candy Canes, 
grabbing a hat with a well placed leap, facing off with Glondips and a
Marshmallow before running into a Mutant!  The Mutant wears a hat (feel free
to knock it off from below) and will run to a spot on the floor, throwing a 
penny at Bart, followed by moving to do the same thing once more.  Hit him 
three times on the head to knock him out for good, allowing Bart to use the 
escalator as a stepping stone to get the hat that is floating nearby before 
riding the escalator up to the next floor.

Avoid the Shoes and leap off the trashcan to get the hat, returning to the
trashcan, holding DOWN on it to land in a special room with five hats!  
Return to the mall by the same method on the trashcan here, heading right 
once more to avoid more Shoes, reaching another trashcan, which also 
possesses a very odd quality.  Follow the instructions laid out here, and a
bevy of prizes will belong to Bart:


   i. Jump onto the can, leaping five times in a row (the last three hops
      release one Coin each, so go grab them quickly).

  ii. Jump back onto the can, leaping six times in a row (the four hops
      release one hat each, so grab them quickly).

 iii. Jump back onto the can, leaping five times in a row, releasing a
      Jebediah Head (grab it immediately).

  iv. Jump back onto the can, leaping five times in a row, releasing a 
      Krusty The Clown Icon (snag it as soon as it appears).

   v. Return to the can one final time, leaping fourteen times in a row
      (the last four hops release a sign each, so grab them quickly as they
      are worth one Coin each).

With all of this finished off, move right once again while dodging the 
various shoes that attack, getting two Coins out of the next trashcan with
repeated leaps, and then go through the hopping shoe brigade, grabbing a hat
along the way, snagging a Krusty The Clown Icon that is out in the open.  
Avoid the Shoes that will continue to plague Bart's path, grabbing hats 
(also watching out for more hats to remove from humans/mutants that are 
shopping), reaching The Mutant!  The Mutant has returned, this time hopping
about in a huge shoe, looking to tread allover Bart.  Knock the hat off of
his head at the start of the bout, followed by bouncing of his head after he
lands, staying right beside him as he only hops to the side, never up and 
down.  Land three hits, grabbing the remaining hats on the floor (use the 
escalator as a stepping stone to get the higher ones), moving up to the
next floor when ready.

Two Glondips move up and down under a heat each here, so large leaps will 
grab the hats and avoid the foes, reaching a trashcan that releases one 
Coin, following it carefully past the Glondips, returning for another Coin,
and then return one final time to get a Krusty The Clown Icon.  Next up are
Magician's Assistants (lower body followed the upper body) to get past, 
finding a Krusty The Clown Icon to increase your life stock, followed by
some hats with Rabbits hopping in out of them, so grab the hats when the 
Rabbits leap high into the air.  A Glondip attacks next, then two rabbits 
(more hats to get), followed by a shopping area (more Mutant proof to get if
needed), which also has two trashcans (one Coin each) as well as attacking 
Neckties.  When the wet cement pool is reached, leap carefully across the 
floating platforms, jumping straight up on the last one to reveal a Jebediah
Head, using it to run past the Rings to find Wands that move up and down 
(like Candy Canes).  Grab a Coin each from the trashcans in this stretch,
reaching the end of the floor, facing off with The Mutant once final 
time!  Knock his hat off at the start of the bout, then get ready to react
to his disappearance/reappearance style, landing his head right as he begins
to attack with his playing card projectile.  Hit him three times to finish
him off, moving right to find one more hat and heads up the escalator to the
next floor.

Head right here to find the BOSS FIGHT!

                               ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The Babysitter Bandit must have thought upgrading to theft from the mall in 
the confusion was a good idea, but she did not count on seeing Bart Simpson
again!  She will attack by lobbing down suitcases full of stolen goods at 
Bart, attempting to knock him silly, so Bart must avoid these objects, 
leaping onto them to send them back up at Ms. Botz.  If M-A-R-G-E is spelled
out, Marge will help out here by knocking some of the suitcases away, which 
seems like a negative, but she will typically pick off the second of two 
suitcases that Ms. Botz tries to drop very close together, which can prove 
to be very dangerous for Bart, so she is not entirely useless as she may 
first appear.  Land five hits to send his Ms. Botz packing, finishing the
level to move onto Krustyland Amusement Park!

Adil...: The spy disguised as an exchange student is back, tossing Bombs all
         over the place.  Avoid the Bombs, either avoiding him or hitting 
         him with the Slingshot to defeat him.

Barrel.: Rolls along the ground, so jump over them as they come forward.

Bird...: Flying through the air around the massive tower near the Strongman 
         portion of the midway, they are looking to pierce Bart with their
         sharp beaks.  Not fast at all, they are easily avoided.

Clown..: Hopping up and down in place, running forward, or falling from 
         above, these entertainers seem more intent on hurting Bart than 
         making him laugh.  Pass under them/jump over them when they leap
         to see them run away.

Glondip: The four legged foes will patrol on the ground, moving back and 
         forth along the ground, attempting to force Bart into going past
         their ambushes with great care.

Note that in this level balloons float across the sky periodically, which 
can be busted by jumping into them from a roof of a tent or with a 
Slingshot.  Start out by jumping onto the window of the tent, busting the 
two balloons floating nearby, followed by passing under the Clowns around 
the games, which all hold great prizes, so play by pressing UP to initiate 
the games (at the price of one Coin per play).

                                 ==========
                                 3 In A Row
                                 ==========

Objective: Knock down three heads in a row (horizontal, vertical, or 
           diagonal) to win, with the easiest three to hit are the top
           three heads (use a full jump and throw at the peak of the jump).

Prize....: Krusty The Clown Icon and 5 Coins.

                                ============
                                Lucky Number
                                ============

Objective: Pick a number and hope the wheel lands on your number.  Well, you
           can cheat on this game by using the Magnet before you play, as 
           that will assure that the game goes your way.

Prize....: Krusty The Clown Icon and 5 Coins.

                                 ==========
                                 3 Balloons
                                 ==========

Objective: Pop three Balloons of the colour indicated by the game (Red or
           Blue) with only three darts.  Note that each Balloon popped 
           counts towards your overall GOAL total for the level.

Prize....: Krusty The Clown Icon and 5 Coins.

                              ===============
                              Target Shooting
                              ===============

Objective: With 20 shots, Bart has 10 seconds (after his initial shot) to
           score 100 points by shooting the following targets: 
           White Ducks=====> 10 Points
           Circle Targets==> 20 Points
           Stars===========> 30 Points
           Red Ducks=======> 40 Points

Prize....: Krusty The Clown Icon and 5 Coins.

After these distractions, go right to leap a Glondip, busting the balloons
above the tent, and then avoid the bombs from the Adil, snagging the 
Slingshot off the wall, turning it on the kid to eliminate him (also very 
useful for picking off stray balloons in the sky above).  Grab the balloon
the big guy is holding, followed by climbing the ladder ahead (avoid the 
Birds and grab balloons), reaching the very top, where Adil should be 
ignored as Bart leaps off the tower to the left, falling down to hit the 
see-saw at the bottom, ringing the bell here to get a Jebediah Head, 
followed by running to the right to get the three Coins that fell from the 
bell. 

Head right and go through the bombs tossed by the Clown in the dunk tank, 
followed by avoiding the Glondip from the tent window, leaping off the roof
to grab a second Slingshot.  Deal with the Barrels and Glondips while 
shooting at Balloons above, reaching one more tent with two Balloons, 
followed by going into the main tent.  In here is a game with doors to go
through, with the goal of opening each door once.  It is not required to
pull this off, BUT it will yield four balloons (1/10th of all required goals
for the level), so do the following actions: 

Door Numbers

 1   2   3      i. Open Door 8.
               ii. Open Door 9.
 4   5   6    iii. Open Door 7.
               iv. Open Door 3.
 7   8   9

Move on to the right, locating some organ pipes that blow air in the air,
which Bart must float across to advance.  The air will slowly move along
the organ pipes (left to right), so start floating along, moving forward at
a very slow pace, using the Coins that pop out of the pipes as an indicator
to move forward (try to time the advancement over to the next set of pipes 
to coincide with the Coins reaching the peak of their flight).  Watch out 
for Clowns on the far side, walking along to find an absolutely MASSIVE
Krusty The Clown head (complete with eyes that trail Bart), so start leaping
around the ledges in front of it, watching out for balloons to pop and for 
falling bombs.  When the red platform between Krusty's eyes is reached, leap
onto it and then leap off the side, pulling Bart back so he will land 
directly under the platform in Krusty's mouth.  With the Krusty The Clown
Icon in your possession, jump right onto the red ledge there, followed by
leaping to the right immediately (as this ledge disappears after a second or
two), finding Clowns as the final obstacle for Bart to bypass to exit the 
Big Top.

Get the Slingshot outside the tent, dodging the Clowns and Glondips that 
will be attacking in this area, popping more balloons (especially the ones
attached to the small tent).  When the ferris wheel is reached, ride on the
carriages to get over the large pit, noting that a Krusty The Clown Icon can
be obtained by dropping onto the central axle of the ferris wheel.  Once on
the far side, an interesting phenomenon can be used to go back in the level,
as the window on the right of the double windowed tent can be used as a warp
(hold DOWN on the window to go back to the first window in the area).  If 
Bart stays on the windows of the tent, he can keep warping along by holding 
DOWN at each new locale, reaching the spot in the level he wishes to go back
to.  However, this is only really useful if you are lacking balloons to be
able to reach the end of the level, and balloons are numerous enough that it
should not be necessary.

Head over to the right to find the BOSS FIGHT!

                             ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
                           ~~~~ Sideshow Bob ~~~~
                             ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The evil, former sidekick of Krusty The Clown has come back for Bart, using 
his connections to get on the grounds of the amusement park.  Bob will bound
across the screen, attempting to squish Bart with his enormous feet.  Bart 
will have to stomp on the rather sensitive feet of the big man to hurt him.
If L-I-S-A is spelled out, Bart's brainy sister will be on a trapeze above 
the showdown, dropping down bowling balls periodically, in an attempt to hit
Bob (if successful, Sideshow will be vulnerable for an extra second or two 
on the next two or three jumps).  Land five toe stomping leaps, and Bob will
once again be sent back to jail, while Bart is off to the Springfield Museum
Of Natural History!

Cobra........: Hiding in baskets, the poisonous snakes will attempt to bite
               Bart as he tries to leap over the large snakes.

Crocodile....: The leather backed baddies will actually help Bart out by
               giving him a lift across the large expanse of water in the 
               jungle area.

Dinosaur.....: The massive monstrosity of the pit in the prehistoric wing
               will attack by spitting out fireballs at Bart.  Bart will 
               need to scale the two invisible ledges in front of the beast,
               jumping onto the head to damage him.  Land three hits to
               take the foe out.

Glondip......: The four legged foes will patrol on the ground, moving back 
               and forth along the ground, attempting to force Bart into 
               going past their ambushes with great care.

Hands........: Patrolling the pit under the moving brick wall in the 
               Egyptian wing, these green oddities will attempt to knock 
               Bart off into the deep chasm below.

Jackal.......: Egyptian guardians, they patrol by the tombs that the museum
               possesses.  Run under them as they leap about.

Monkey.......: Throwing rocks through the jungle area, he will be directly 
               in Bart's way after the pond has been crossed.  Hit him with
               three rounds from the Dart Gun to bring his reign of terror 
               to an end.

Mummy........: In the Egyptian Wing, this bandage tossing monster will take
               three hits on the head to be destroyed.  It is best to hit 
               him once, then retreat back to leap the bandages, then return
               to attack anew.

Mutants......: Human beings that have been overtaken by the Space Mutants, 
               they walk along as a normal human would.  To tell if they are
               Mutants, use the X-Ray Specs to scan them, killing them off 
               by jumping on their heads, driving them off and gaining some 
               proof of their presence (to get the level's family member on 
               your side).

Pterodactyl..: Patrolling the tar pits, these flying terrors will try to ram
               Bart into the black substance, looking to entomb him there 
               forever.  It is best to just avoid these menaces.

Spider.......: Found in the jungle portion of the museum, they crawl along 
               the ground, chasing Bart down, but they will not enter into 
               another spider’s territory, so use this to your advantage.

Spikes.......:  Appearing as a trap in the Egyptian section of the museum, 
                careful movements are needed to get through their area.

Tarantula....: These large spiders will appear in groups, moving up and down
               to block Bart's path.  Either leap over them or walk under 
               them, but they can not be killed, so save your Dart Gun ammo.

Venus Flytrap: This overgrown plant will spit rocks across the screen to try
               and hit Bart.  Advance at a walk and leap over each rock 
               attack, jumping on the head of the foe, landing behind it,
               followed by repeating the attack twice more for the victory.

Zebloid......: Coming in both red and blue varieties, these one eyed foes 
               will try to occupy areas where Bart will have to try and 
               bypass their blockades with tricky jumps and small walking 
               areas.

                             ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
                           ~~~~ Walkthrough ~~~~
                             ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This level is not difficult for the amount of Goals (which it totals in at a
measly six), but rather for the long stretches of tough jumps, tough 
obstacles, and bevy of mini bosses that populate the museum.  Start out by 
going right under the Zebloid, leaping on the glass display case three times
to collect the Krusty The Clown Icon, followed by jumping left across the
painting ledges to find a Dart Gun, shooting the exit sign on the left 
immediately afterwards.  Head left under the two Zebloids (watch out for a
lone Glondip that patrols the entire floor of this section of the museum),
running into a laser security system (go forward and leap when the highest 
bar is on, as it will change to the lowest while Bart is in danger of taking
a hit), going through a second laser security set the same way, and then
make use of repeated jumps to get the Coins from the display case.  Leap to
the right, taking the exit sign down with your hands, continuing to the 
right to go through one more laser security system (same pattern as previous
two), which will land Bart in a very real to life jungle setting!

Spiders will come after Bart, leap over them while en route to a tree 
branch, where Bart should remain until the Dragonfly goes off screen, at
which point Bart should take a huge leap off the tree to the left, snagging 
a second Dart Gun (careful to not land on a Spider) before returning to that
tree, hopping across the branches (avoid the Dragonflies that attack) to 
reach a pond of water.  Wait for the Crocodile to surface, jumping onto his
head, and then do your best Pitfall Harry impersonation, riding across the
pond by hopping across the Crocodiles, avoiding the falling rocks, reaching
the far side of the pond safely.  Jump over the spider and run to the right,
scaling the tree quickly, and rapidly pump three Dart Gun rounds into the 
Monkey, knocking him out.

Leap off of the tree to the left to get another Dart Gun, returning to the
same tree to go jump across the quicksand (watch out for the Dragonfly at 
the next tree), arriving at a series of Tarantulas that are moving up and 
down (walk under or leap over).  Head right from there to find the Venus Fly
Trap, which requires three jumps on the head to defeat.  Walk forward and 
leap over the rocks it spits out, leaping onto the head, landing behind it,
then repeat the jump on head and land behind twice more to destroy it!

Using the stalk from the Venus Fly Trap, leap up and shoot the exit sign on
the left before going over the laser, under the Zebloid, and onto the glass
case, where Bart should ignore (for now) the Jebediah Head inside, and 
instead go left, positioning Bart where the Zebloid can not hit him, and 
Bart can then safely leap up to shoot another exit sign with the Dart Gun.
Go and collect the Jebediah Head, running through the laser security sets to
avoid having to do it the traditional way, grabbing a Krusty The Clown Icon
from the case, snag yet another Dart Gun, and then go right onto the 
painting ledge with the Zebloid, carefully moving right enough to see the 
exit sign above the door, leaving one last laser security set to bypass, but
only step on the first tile of the grey floor ahead.

The floor tiles will glow red for Bart, which indicates that they are safe 
to step on, so leap across the floor, noting that Bart will need to 
backtrack a couple times before reaching the far side.  As soon as he does 
reach the far side, a new challenge will appear, as bricks will begin to 
stick out of the brick wall ahead, so hop onto each one as it appears, 
leaping high into the air to avoid the Hands that pop out of the pit and try
to hit Bart.  Keep leaping carefully through the winding path, leaping 
across the last gap (it looks a bit long, but no more bricks will appear, so
just let Bart fly off with reckless abandon).

Cobras are the next challenge, so Bart must carefully leap past each one, 
which also happens to be the same way for Bart to get past the Spikes and 
into an apparent dead end where Spiders reign down from the roof.  The way 
to advance is to leap up and touch the heads of the statues in the 
background, making an ankh pop out for Bart to collect, with each one 
forcing the column in the middle of the floor upwards.  Collect six of them 
while dodging the Spiders, and then position Bart on the column, making the 
room rumble (dodge the falling rocks during this time), and once the column 
is completely back into the floor, head right as the way is now clear.

Leap over more Spikes (use the ledge by the statue to take a super jump over
the entire set) to find some Jackals to pass under as they leap around, 
running smack into a full fledged mummy who flings bandages across the 
screen to try and peg Bart.  Hop on the head of the Mummy three times to 
defeat the ancient Egyptian, but it is typically best to retreat after 
landing a hit, hopping the bandage attack, and then renew the attack, as the
foe will often get you if you are greedy and keep attacking constantly.

Head over the laser security system to move past yet another security 
system, reaching a case with a Jebediah Head.  Pop it out of there, jump up 
into the air and fire off a couple rounds from the Dart Gun towards the 
left (from the painting ledge where a Dart Gun sits), and then hold left to
see if the  darts make contact with one or both of the exit signs (this 
should be enough to get Bart to the boss now).  Head to the right, dodging
Zebloids and a stray Glondip, grabbing a Krusty The Clown Icon from the glass
case, followed by grabbing the next Dart Gun, using it on an exit sign on 
the right.  All that remains in this section is to leap over one last 
security system, putting Bart into a prehistoric setting.

Volcanic rocks will fall down in this area as Bart moves along, reaching a
river of lava, so jump across on the floating rock when it comes along,
reaching the far side to go along to locate a large tar pit.  In the tar pit
are dinosaur bones, some of which is safe to be on (flat surfaces) and not
safe to be on (sloped portions of the bones).  Cross by leaping across the 
safe portions of the bones, avoiding the tar bubbles and Pterodactyls as 
they come along (for the final two Pterodactyls, retreating back one 
platform is required for avoiding these annoyances), and Bart will 
eventually arrive at the far side of the pit.  Head right carefully, looking
out for fireballs as another mini-boss attack is imminent!  

The Dinosaur will be sitting in the pit ahead, spitting fireballs at Bart, 
so hop up two invisible ledges in front of the Dinosaur (they are right 
beside the pit), followed by leaping high onto the head of the beast to 
damage it.  Now do a small leap back onto the high ledge when the coast is
clear (ie the foe has just shot a fireball), and then repeat the attack.  
For the third hit, Bart must either do a flat jump and get onto the 
Dinosaur's head without damaging the foe (then delivering the third blow), 
or he must land directly in the middle of Dinosaur's head with the direct 
attack, as a crooked hit will send Bart into the pit when the screen scrolls
forward.

Shoot the exit sign after jumping down onto the Dinosaur's back, followed by
hopping across the small gap that remains within the pit, going into the 
next hallway to jump off the glass case to the left, shooting another exit 
sign before turning to the right, going past two final laser security 
systems (same old hop when the laser is at highest position to get through
easily), arriving at the BOSS FIGHT!

                           ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
                         ~~~~ Dr. Marvin Monroe ~~~~
                           ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The "good" doctor appears to have lost his mind, forcing his electroshock
therapy onto unwilling people now!  He will release an electrical charge
that travels across the floor, starting to move back and forth after a short
distance before dissipating completely.  Land three blows to his head to 
knock some sense into the quack, but clear out after each hit to avoid the
new electrical charges that Monroe releases.  If H-O-M-E-R is spelled out,
Bart's one and only father will appear in the two paintings around the
battle arena, dropping wet towels into play, which can both block the 
electrical currents on the ground AND stun the Doctor for a few moments,
allowing Bart to line up his next attack.

The final level is a bit different in that it has all family members 
available to help, they do so through out the level, Bart must return the 
Goal items (in this case, Radioactive Rods) to the Nuclear Reactor, AND he
can only carry four of the Radioactive Rods at one time.  Each Simpson 
serves a new purpose in this level, and their support will be as follows:

Lisa Simpson..: She holds the combination number for each door on each
                floor, with her giving the number for the door on the same
                floor which Bart has found her on (ie floor 2 combination is
                located on floor 2 where Lisa is found).

Homer Simpson.: Homer will show up whenever Bart throws Donuts out for the 
                big guy, scaring off all of the foes in the area.

Marge Simpson.: Marge will look to lessen Bart's load by taking all of the
                Radioactive Rods that Bart has acquired, delivering them to
                the basement for her special little guy.  Just look by any
                of the central elevator doors for her to be strolling along.

Maggie Simpson: Located in random locations in the Power Plant each time 
                Bart reaches this level, the smallest member of the Simpson
                Clan seems to be unable to help, but she will prove to be a
                key help when the time is right.  Keep an eye out for her,
                and remember exactly where she was found inside the Power 
                Plant.

Starting out on Floor One, head to the right to go under two Zebloids, 
followed by leaping over another Zebloid to grab a Radioactive Rod.  Move
back to the left and go past the elevator to avoid more Zebloids, entering
the combination (go to the flashing light panel on the wall, press B Button
to begin the number cycle), and enter 14 to open the door.  Grab the Donuts
from the barrel before hopping over the group of Glondips, reaching the
Stairwell, but before going through, go past the Zebloids, leaping back to
the right over the top of them, grabbing a second Radioactive Rod.  

Head up the stairs (press UP to go in, then UP and B Button to go up a 
floor) to the second floor, moving to the right (jump the Glondip) to find
a trio of Zebloids to hop over, getting a Radioactive Rod before going back
to the Stairwell, taking each flight up to the fifth floor.  Grab the 
Radioactive Rod from the pipes above the Zebloid before returning to the 
stairs, going down to the third floor (stop on the fourth briefly for the 
Donuts), where Donuts rest on the left (snag them), and then head to the 
right, dodging the Glondips and Zebloids, reaching the combination door (the
number is 11).  Run under the Zebloids to reach the main elevator, where 
Marge can be recruited (press B Button as she walks past) to take all four 
Radioactive Rods down to the basement for Bart.

Go up the elevator (B Button to call it, then UP to get on, and then 
LEFT/RIGHT to pick floor, pressing the B Button to confirm the choice) to go
to floor four, grabbing the Krusty The Clown Icon by jumping from the ledge 
to the left of the elevator, moving to the right by going under the first 
Zebloid and over the next two Zebloids, obtaining a Radioactive Rod.  
Backtrack to the elevator once more, going up one floor to number five, 
moving out to the left to go over a Glondip, then over two Zebloids, 
reaching a combination door (enter 21 to get through).  Bart will need to
jump up under the Zebloid to the partial ledge, quickly getting onto the 
main barrel ledge, followed by continuing to the left, avoiding the Glondip
and another Zebloid, taking a second Radioactive Rod.

Backtrack through the obstacles and head down the elevator to the second 
floor to go to the left, hopping the two Zebloids, reaching a secondary
elevator (take it up to the fourth floor).  Go left to face two leaps over
Zebloids to rest on a barrel stack with Lisa before carefully hopping up to
get the Radioactive Rod (do not fall down to the left, or a Glondip will get
Bart).  Go to the elevator once more, but pass by to the right and avoid the
two Glondips, carefully leaping up to get the Radioactive Rod when the 
Zebloid is out of the way (clear out after getting it to avoid damage).
Move back to the elevator again, this time going down to the second floor,
where Bart should go right to leap two Zebloids, looking for Marge by the
elevator to take the four radioactive Rods down to the basement for Bart.

Continue moving right after the meeting between mother and son, passing
three Zebloids to locate a combination door (32 is the number to use),
followed closely by leaping over three Zebloids one at a time (this also 
happens to be a great spot to use some Donuts as Bart has to pass through
here a few times) to go up the Stairwell to floor three.  Go left between
and then past the Zebloids (do NOT fall off the barrels to the left or Bart
will be unable to escape and have to be killed by the Glondip), leaping to
the right to get the Radioactive Rod, followed by going up the Stairwell
to the fourth floor.  

Head left from the stairs to go past three Zebloids and a Glondip (another 
excellent spot for Donuts to be used) to find a combination door (entry 
number is 41) that leads to a Zebloid to go under, a Glondip to jump past, 
and then leap to the right for the Radioactive Rod when the aforementioned 
Zebloid is not in the way.  Go back to the right to get into the Stairwell,
taking them down to the first floor, jumping onto the barrels top the right 
of the stairs, leaping left over the Zebloid to get a third Radioactive Rod,
followed by moving up the Stairwell to the second floor.  Go to the left 
here, passing the Zebloids, a combination door (32 is the number), and more
Zebloids to reach the main elevator, where Marge should be recruited to take
the three radioactive Rods down to the nuclear reactor for Bart.

It is time to go right on the second floor yet again, passing Zebloids, a
combination door (32 still works), and more Zebloids, reaching the 
Stairwell, so go down to the first floor.  Head left to jump over the
Glondips, then under a Zebloid to enter a secondary elevator, taking it up
to the third floor.  Go to the right and leap past the Glondips (using the
barrel stacks) to get a Radioactive Rod before heading left, passing the
elevator in favour of jumping two Zebloids (go over when they pause on the 
floor) to find a barrel stack with a Radioactive Rod floating above it (do
NOT fall off the barrels to the left or Bart will be unable to escape and 
have to be killed by the Glondip).

Go right past the Zebloids again, taking the secondary elevator up to the
fifth floor, where Bart can get a Krusty The Clown Icon by leaping off the
ledge to the right of the elevator.  Go left to jump a Glondip, then a 
Zebloid, and then carefully leap two more Zebloids to the left, running in 
between the two Zebloids to get a third Radioactive Rod.  Extract Bart from
his precarious position, jumping past all the foes to go right, passing the
elevator to jump between the two Zebloids when the way is clear, getting a
fourth radioactive Rod.  Return to the secondary elevator, riding it down
to the first floor, moving out to the right to get past a Zebloid and two 
Glondips, taking the stairs to the second floor.  Now Bart heads left, 
passing the three Zebloids, then enter 32 at the combination door, and then
bypass three more Zebloids to reach the elevator, where Bart can just head 
down to the basement to deliver the Radioactive Rods to the reactor himself.

This just leaves one last Radioactive Rod to locate, BUT there are no more 
to be found in the entire Nuclear Power Plant!  Instead, Bart will need to
locate his smaller sister Maggie, as she alone holds the power to stop the
Space Mutants, so I hope you remembered where you have seen her in your 
travels (if you have not, then she will be near the Stairwell on the right
side of the plant on the fifth floor).  Meander back towards Maggie Simpson,
walking up to her and pressing the B Button to end the game!

4) This section will examine each item, listing their uses and where to 
   locate them in the game.


                              o-------------o
                              | Cherry Bomb |
                              o-------------o

Bought in Mel's Novelty Hut in the first level, Use it by the purple bird in
the pet shop window to send it flying away.


                                  o------o
                                  | Coin |
                                  o------o

These Items can be found hidden away in all sorts of objects in all levels,
which is a good thing as they are used to purchase Items, play games, and to
gain extra lives.


                                o----------o
                                | Dart Gun |
                                o----------o

Found in the Springfield Museum Of Natural History, these twelve round 
weapons can be used to send Monkeys packing, to shoot exit signs, and to
stun the Venus Flytrap.


                                 o--------o
                                 | Donuts |
                                 o--------o

Found in the Springfield Nuclear Power Plant, using these will call Homer
onto the scene, and he will proceed to destroy all of the enemies on screen
for Bart.


                             o---------------o
                             | Jebediah Head |
                             o---------------o

Jebediah Springfield founded the town of Springfield, and he always wants
dedicated townsfolk to get "ahead", so if a bust of his likeness is located,
Bart will be rendered invincible for several seconds, allowing the young man
to run through foes with reckless abandon.  However, cliffs/wet cement/etc.
will still destroy Bart during this phase.


                                  o-----o
                                  | Key |
                                  o-----o

The shop Tool World in the first level has this for sale, so purchase it 
only if you feel some purple objects will elude your efforts in that level,
as it is only useful for going after two purple moviegoers (via the 
Springfield Retirement Home Warp).


                         o-----------------------o
                         | Krusty The Clown Icon |
                         o-----------------------o

Found in plain sight and in hidden areas, Krusty The Clown icons will yield
Bart an extra life (except for one in the first area, which rewards Bart 
with a 3-Up).


                                o--------o
                                | Magnet |
                                o--------o

Toys 'N Stuff in the first level is where this lovely Item is purchased,
and it has one use in the game, which is to rig the Lucky Number Game in
the Krustyland Amusement Park.


                                o--------o
                                | Rocket |
                                o--------o

These heavy duty fireworks must be lit to send them flying in an arc, 
scaring Birds, opening window shades, and to trigger a special Krusty The
Clown Icon (it is a 3-Up and it has a Sound Test).


                              o-----------o
                              | Slingshot |
                              o-----------o

Found in the Krustyland Amusement Park, these lovelies allow Bart to fling
ammo in an arc through the air, popping balloons and picking off enemies 
(like Adil and the dunking pool clown).


                              o------------o
                              | Sound Test |
                              o------------o

Found in the first level as part of the special Krusty The Clown Icon from
the "E" in the Kwik-E-Mart Rocket shot, it does what it says and plays all 
of the Sound/Music within the game.


                              o-----------o
                              | Spray Can |
                              o-----------o

Spread all over the first level, these red paint loaded devices are used to
change the colour of the purple object on the Springfield streets.


                               o---------o
                               | Whistle |
                               o---------o

Look in Toys 'N Stuff on the Springfield Streets to find this Item, which 
will almost always call a Dog onto the screen (which is not desirable), but
it also can be used to call Abe "Grandpa" Simpson at the far right side of 
the Springfield Retirement Home, making him appear to throw Coins out in a
random arrangement.


                                o--------o
                                | Wrench |
                                o--------o

Purchased from Tool World in the first level, it has only one use and that 
is on the fire hydrant right outside of Tool World, forcing the paint job on
the awning above the door to Tool World to be washed away.

----------------------------------Bosses------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

5) This section will cover how to beat each Mini-Boss/Boss, listed by Level.


                             ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
                           ~~~~ Nelson Muntz ~~~~
                             ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Nelson Muntz is the biggest and baddest bully Bart has ever faced, and he is
back to torture Bart once more.  Muntz attacks by flinging water balloons 
through the air in an arc, trying to hit Bart, and he can also freeze Bart
in place temporarily by stomping the ground after he leaps.  Bart should 
leap into the air to avoid the paralyzing earthquake while flinging his own
water balloons back at Nelson (use the B Button to do so), jumping to avoid
the incoming water balloons.  If M-A-G-G-I-E is spelled out, Bart's baby 
sister will float in the sky, throwing bowling balls to the left, where Bart
can leap up to smack them towards Nelson.  It takes 8 water balloons or 3 
bowling balls to defeat the bully, though a combination of the two will take
him down even faster.  Defeat this badass to move on to the Springfield
Shopping Mall!


                               ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
                             ~~~~ Ms. Botz ~~~~
                               ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The Babysitter Bandit must have thought upgrading to theft from the mall in 
the confusion was a good idea, but she did not count on seeing Bart Simpson
again!  She will attack by lobbing down suitcases full of stolen goods at 
Bart, attempting to knock him silly, so Bart must avoid these objects, 
leaping onto them to send them back up at Ms. Botz.  If M-A-R-G-E is spelled
out, Marge will help out here by knocking some of the suitcases away, which 
seems like a negative, but she will typically pick off the second of two 
suitcases that Ms. Botz tries to drop very close together, which can prove 
to be very dangerous for Bart, so she is not entirely useless as she may 
first appear.  Land five hits to send his Ms. Botz packing, finishing the
level to move onto Krustyland Amusement Park!


                             ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
                           ~~~~ Sideshow Bob ~~~~
                             ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The evil, former sidekick of Krusty The Clown has come back for Bart, using 
his connections to get on the grounds of the amusement park.  Bob will bound
across the screen, attempting to squish Bart with his enormous feet.  Bart 
will have to stomp on the rather sensitive feet of the big man to hurt him.
If L-I-S-A is spelled out, Bart's brainy sister will be on a trapeze above 
the showdown, dropping down bowling balls periodically, in an attempt to hit
Bob (if successful, Sideshow will be vulnerable for an extra second or two 
on the next two or three jumps).  Land five toe stomping leaps, and Bob will
once again be sent back to jail, while Bart is off to the Springfield Museum
Of Natural History!


                           ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
                         ~~~~ Dr. Marvin Monroe ~~~~
                           ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The "good" doctor appears to have lost his mind, forcing his electroshock
therapy onto unwilling people now!  He will release an electrical charge
that travels across the floor, starting to move back and forth after a short
distance before dissipating completely.  Land three blows to his head to 
knock some sense into the quack, but clear out after each hit to avoid the
new electrical charges that Monroe releases.  If H-O-M-E-R is spelled out,
Bart's one and only father will appear in the two paintings around the
battle arena, dropping wet towels into play, which can both block the 
electrical currents on the ground AND stun the Doctor for a few moments,
allowing Bart to line up his next attack.

----------------------------------Secrets----------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

6) This section will list some secret moves and tricks that can make the 
   game easier and more fun.


                        o------------------------o
                        | Streets Of Springfield |
                        o------------------------o

                             ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
                           ~~~~ Kwik-E-Mart ~~~~
                             ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If a Rocket is shot into the "E" of the Kwik-E-Mart sign, a Krusty the Clown
Icon will fly out to the right, but it will disappear as it hits the ground.
So time the launch so Bart can run under the Zebloids, snagging the Icon for
a 3-Up (instead of the typical 1-Up) and Bart will also gain possession of 
the Sound Test Item!

                         ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
                       ~~~~ Retirement Home Warp ~~~~
                         ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If Bart has to get back to the start of the level, he can use the door of 
the Springfield Retirement Home provided he has bought a Key.  This is an
excellent way to get back to the theatre to spraypaint movie patrons as they
leave (at 200 and 400 left on the timer), though sadly the warp is only one
way.

                      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
                    ~~~~ Generous Grandpa Simpson ~~~~
                      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If Bart has the Whistle, he can go and stand under the right-most column of
windows at the Springfield Retirement Home, blasting a shrill note to make
Grandpa appear at the window, throwing Coins out in a very quick manner, so
Bart must collect as many as possible, grabbing them in air as they 
disappear into the ground if they get that far.


                       o---------------------------o
                       | Springfield Shopping Mall |
                       o---------------------------o

                           ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
                         ~~~~ Travelling Candy ~~~~
                           ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

On the first floor is a large wet cement floor to go over via Candy and 
Lollipops, but there is a very easy way to get across.  Jump up and down 
three times on the second piece of Canady, and it will float to the right,
crossing the tough stretch quickly, so Bart can focus on grabbing the two
hats and then take a long leap at a Krusty The Clown Icon at the very end of
the ride.


                         ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
                       ~~~~ Magical Trashcan One ~~~~
                         ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The first trashcan on the second floor can be entered by holding DOWN on it
for two seconds, allowing Bart to find five hidden hats!  Return to the mall
by holding DOWN on the trashcan inside this odd room.


                         ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
                       ~~~~ Magical Trashcan Two ~~~~
                         ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The second trashcan on the second floor also boasts a reward for the 
inquisitive, but to make it easier, here is the breakdown of rewards:

   i. Jump onto the can, leaping five times in a row (the last three hops
      release one Coin each, so go grab them quickly).

  ii. Jump back onto the can, leaping six times in a row (the four hops
      release one hat each, so grab them quickly).

 iii. Jump back onto the can, leaping five times in a row, releasing a
      Jebediah Head (grab it immediately).

  iv. Jump back onto the can, leaping five times in a row, releasing a 
      Krusty The Clown Icon (snag it as soon as it appears).

   v. Return to the can one final time, leaping fourteen times in a row
      (the last four hops release a sign each, so grab them quickly as they
      are worth one Coin each).


                       o---------------------------o
                       | Krustyland Amusement Park |
                       o---------------------------o

                        ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
                      ~~~~ Magnetic Game Rigging ~~~~
                        ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The Lucky Number game is random normally, but by using the Magnet BEFORE
playing, it will automatically assure a victory.  Cheating?  Yes.  
Profitable?  Very.

                           ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
                         ~~~~ Tent Window Warp ~~~~
                           ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The final tent in the area (just past the ferris wheel) has two windows,
and if DOWN is held on this window Bart will reappear at the first tent in
the level.  If he remains on this window and holds DOWN, he will move to
the next tent in the level, and he keep doing this until he reaches the
desired tent.  This is useful for getting more balloons (if they are 
required for reaching the boss of the area.

   already wrote a great FAQ here, I just wanted to do my own as I have 
   always had a soft spot in my heart for this one.

   You should also check out the rest of Wilson Lau's work while you are at
