                             1.1  About the Guide
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Here goes yet another endings guide for yet another famous series. Games based
on the Simpsons may not involve intricate plots, stunning gameplay, or
fantastic endings, but, um... I forget my point.

Bah, it's just a bunch of stuff that happens. Enjoy!


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                             1.2  About the Games
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


"The Simpsons" first appeared on television back in 1987 as animated shorts on
"The Tracey Ullman Show", but it wasn't until December of 1989 that yellow
fever hit. Mugs, backpacks, pencils, toys, towels, paper plates, and even
toilet paper were just some of the items that sprung from the popularity of the
hit TV show.

With so many types of Simpsons products already out in the stores, it was no
surprise that FOX decided to license a Simpsons video game. That first game was
The Simpsons Arcade by Konami, an instant favorite for both fans of the show
and the average gamer. The success of the first video game led to dozens of
games (mainly starring Bart) released for several systems. These attempts to
cash in on the popularity of "The Simpsons" often failed, and the number of
games being released soon dwindled to one or two every few years.

The trend continued on through until the PS2/GC/Xbox era (with one or two
exceptions). FOX partnered up with Radical Entertainment in 2001 to create
Simpsons Road Rage, the first success (both financially and with gamers) since
1990's Simpsons Arcade. FOX then partnered up with VU Games and Radical
Entertainment to create the even more popular Simpsons Hit & Run.

Fox Interactive seems to be coming back with this new partnership with VU
Games, but is the Simpsons "curse" truly broken? We'll find out when the next
Simpsons game comes out.

*cough* Hit & Run 2 *cough*


UPDATE:

As of v0.98 of this guide, it has been announced that EA and FOX have struck
a deal to create video games based on The Simpsons. So a Hit & Run sequel is,
unfortunately, not going to be released.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                         2.01  Bart and the Beanstalk
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Ending:

Having found a money bag, harp, and golden goose, Bart quickly escaped from the
Giant's castle. He made his way across the treacherous cloud field with the
Giant right on his tail.

Bart finally reached the beanstalk, but it was a long way down. Using a wide
piece of cloth to float, Bart weaved in and out of the beanstalk vines to
return back to the ground below.

Bart immediately ran and picked up an ax from the ground and used it to chop
down the beanstalk. The Giant was still climbing down when the beanstalk was
cut, and the force of the fall knocked out the Giant for good.

Bart and his family kept the money bag, harp, and golden goose, and they lived
out the rest of their lives in happiness (and with plenty of donuts). THE END.

Ending:

Bart braved the dangers of Krustyland to finally confront Sideshow Bob in the
humid jungle. With his mighty burp balls Bart fought the evil Bob until he
fell, opening the path to save Krusty from his bamboo cage. Bart got a hardy
handshake and a brand new skateboard from Krusty as thanks for saving him,
while Sideshow Bob was sent back to prison where he belonged.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Ending:

With Radioactive Man free from his prison and his powers restored, they could
now go on to face the ultimate evil: Brain-O the Magnificent! This strange
brain in a tank was a formidable opponent, but the combined forces of
Radioactive Man and Bartman were more than he could handle.

With Bartman's help the world is safe once again... but for how long?

famous faces of Roosevelt, Lincoln, Washington, Jefferson, and... Bart Simpson!

strength and courage Bart fought and defeated the final space mutant.

Afterwards he stood bathed in the rays of the setting sun, looking proudly at
his humble town. Bart had once again defeated the space mutants and saved
Springfield from certain doom.

door step with the one million bucks to buy back the Transit Corporation.
Although quite livid about it, Mr. Burns returns the buses and washes his
hands of the whole deal.

The Game Boy Advance version is quite a bit more dramatic. Homer appears at the
Transit Corporation with a crane and a big sack of money containing the $1
million smackers. Burns gawks at the sack as Homer triumphantly returns home to
show off for his family and fall asleep on the concrete. Later that day the
Simpsons put on a concert for the people of Springfield, and they rock all
night long.
