Previous Level 4
Next Level 6

Level 5 is the fifth level in The Simpsons: Hit & Run. It takes place on October 29, with the player taking on the role of Apu as the level's protagonist.

Level 5 modifies the map from Level 2, but focuses more on pinpointing the source of Buzz Cola, the soft drink that made Bart go crazy, than the map itself.


In the previous level, Marge demands to know where Buzz Cola is being produced, as it scrambled Bart's brain completely. Apu can't come up with an answer, causing Marge to destroy several Cola Trucks in a fit of rage. Level 5 picks up after this episode, as Apu tries to find the source of the mentally incapacitating drink. It is after he receives aid from a professional criminal when he discovers the actual origin of the cola production.


Level 5 is set in Downtown Springfield again and reuses the same map as Level 2, but with a few differences, as with each level the day loses more light and instead of taking place at day, it takes place at almost midnight. Besides this, the billboards that can be seen all across town have all been replaced with either Buzz Cola advertisements or, strangely, ads for the Car Built For Homer. In Downtown, the popsicle stick skyscraper has been completely burned to the ground. In the east side, the torn down power line in the alley behind Moe's tavern has been repaired. Finally, at the construction site, moving iron girders can be found near the Buzz Cola glass after the dirt ramp. A collector card can be found at the farthest one.
