Level 2 is the second level in The Simpsons: Hit & Run. It takes place on October 26, with the player taking on the role of Bart as the level's protagonist.

Level 2 takes place in downtown Springfield. In this level, Bart tries to satisfy his need for violence and destruction. His escapades include Bonestorm II, fireworks, and Professor Frink's Truckasaurus.


The level opens with Bart skipping school in downtown Springfield. He is desperately trying to obtain a copy of Bonestorm II, but due to Marge, his mother, destroying most of the copies of the game, his search is unsuccessful. He tries a brief stint with illegal fireworks, but they still fail to satisfy Bart. After learning that Frink is using Bonestorm II's violence to power his Truckasaurus, Bart spends the second half of the Level bringing together the last parts needed to get the robot fully operational.


Level 2 takes place in the more urbanized portion of Springfield. One third of the map is dominated by the downtown side, while another is in the process of being constructed, and the last third is exclusively highway. All three parts have, in some way or another, are unfinished or damaged. Notable locations downtown include the Googolplex, the Monorail, the museum, the hospital, and the stadium. The east side includes the construction site, Moe's Tavern, the train station, Try-n-Save, and the DMV. The highway part of the map splits into three parts. The main road follows a "U" pattern, a side highway that is nearly finished but falls short over the main road, and two splinter roads that start and end shortly after the beginning and end of the main road.


The music for Level 2 is composed much like a rock band would compose a song: a crunchy, distorted guitar dominates, while a slick bass line and loud drums complement the guitar. The track is also used in Level 6.

  • This is the only level that, relatively, does not contribute to the rest of the game's plot, except for the cutscene at the end of the level.
  • In several prerelease screenshots of the level and in the E3 demo of the game, the sky in the level was more cloudier and had rays of light shining from the sky.
