When you are in City Park, you can rack up extra lives, if you keep going to the robot in the back and destroying him with the stun club, he will give you a free shirt every time you destroy him. So if you keep hitting "Exit", and then go back and destroy him, you can gain a lot of lives by collecting the coins, destroying the other little enemies and of course, destroying the robot in the back by the trees over and over, for a free shirt each time!! :)
Instead of using your stun club to kill the big robot in the level city park, make the robot come and run to the little wall on the right side, and take out your RC car and the robot should be shooting a ball of electricity but if you stay on the right you won't get hit. send your RC car right in front of the robot but not too close and it should blow up hurt him and just keep sending your RC car until it dies then there will be a life there then exit the level and re-enter for another life.
During the Ski mini-game, press the L1 and R1 buttonsto get a rear-view mirror.
Catch Monkeys without the RC Car:
There is a simple way to catch monkeys without the use of the RC Car. This is a huge time saver as you don't have to wait unti the end of the game to get the RC Car. All you need is the Slingback Shooter and one flash bomb. Here's what you do. Switch to first person veiw with the slingback shooter and fire away at the money until it runs to one of those little cracks. Then switch to the flash bomb and nail him. Run over to him fast and equip your net. Grab him and poof that's it. That's all you have to do. It may take a bit of practice but when you learn it it really helps.
Save A Life:
When you fall off a cliff, press START and choose EXIT. Nhen you will go to the time station with the same amount of lives before you fell of the cliff.
To get to the secret board in Ape Escape, you must beat Specter at the Level Monkey Madness (the carnival), wait to the ending finishes (including the credits), and then when the game gives you the option, go back to the Time Station and save your game. Then, go to all the levels, and finish catching the Monkeys you missed. When you catch every Monkey, the Peak-Point Matrox will open up, where you will get to fight Specter for the last time, and finally catch him. Then, you'll see the true ending.
Hidden Mini-Game Boxers:
You can get extra boxers on the Specter Boxing minigame by defeating them on Championship mode, although you'll have to run through it multiple times to get ALL of them.
How to get Magic Punch:
You get the MAGIC PUNCH after you finish the level SPECTER LAND and go back into a level with monkeys you have not caught.
