The Errands of Bully- IGN

Helping out the community -- and getting paid in the process.

 September 20, 2006 - Jimmy Hopkins has a whole year at Bullworth Academy ahead of him. As the seasons change, Jimmy will settle in and find his place at the school. He's supposed to attend a number of classes and will probably have to complete some punishment along the way. Jimmy will also try to complete more than 75 tasks for various characters at the Academy and in the surrounding town. There are plenty of mini-games for Jimmy to get involved with, places to explore, items to collect and people to interact with to keep him pretty busy. If Jimmy manages to find some spare time, there will be a steady stream of people who need errands done.



Of course, Jimmy is not a charity worker. Young Mr. Hopkins has cultivated a keen eye for opportunity and quite a head for business. While it's tempting to keep his head down, obey the rules and get on with work, it's a lot more interesting and profitable to take advantage of some of the opportunities that he's spotted. There is money to be made over the course of the school year, especially because the $50 that Jimmy's mother gave him when she abandoned him at the school gates won't last that long. Not when Jimmy needs to buy sodas, stink bombs, itching powder, new clothes or parts for his BMX.

Throughout the day and evenings, Jimmy will be approached by various fellow students and adults who will ask him to complete errands for them. It's not that Jimmy is taking advantage of other people and profiting from their misfortune -- think of it as providing a valuable service to the community.

 

Eggs-alent Payback
When a little girl called Karen comes up to Jimmy one evening with an idea, he instantly spots a potential to earn some fast cash. The girls' dorm has been egged a few times recently and Karen is convinced that the boys are responsible. She asks Jimmy to return the favor by egging the boys' dorm. Who could resist a sweet little girl's request, especially when there's $10 in it and the chance to have some fun making a mess of the school?

 

Crab Hunter
Mr. Martin runs a seafood restaurant in Old Bullworth Vale, and his customers seem very keen on crab at this time of year. In fact he's almost run out and needs somebody to dive into the local estuary and find some more for him. Jimmy is an accomplished swimmer and $20 is too much to ignore -- looks like he'll be getting wet.

 

We Need A Hero
One day, when Jimmy's out and about looking for kicks in Bullworth town, Officer Morrison, the local policeman approaches him. It seems that an abandoned tenement building has caught fire and Officer Morrison is struggling to get on top of the blaze by himself. Does Jimmy feel like saving the day? For $25, he's definitely the kid for the job.

The more the people show what you can do, the less controversial it gets(to me at least)

There's the paper boy side mission, the BMX races and in one screenshot you can see Jimmy racing in a Go-Kart.

These are the vehicle missions already revealed, but you can expect more :D

Yeah, the Go-Kart looks great. Maybe a few side races kind of like in GTA would be great, winning you some custom hookups for it like the Lowrider Missions.
