Beetle Adventure Racing (N64)Cheats Menu
Go to 1 player mode and select "Championship". Race on Coventry Cove and find the shortcut with the barn and 2 haypiles. Run straight into the the haypile closest to the road and you should hit a box. You will here someone say "Groovy!" if you hit it. Finish the race and go to "Options". There will be an option called "Cheats" now.
TIME LIMIT - First select Championship and select any circuit. Make your way to Inferno Isle. At the end of the race, when you are at the village during the lava flow, look for a house near the finish line. Crash through the house to hit the Flower Box. You will hear the announcer say groovy. Finish the race, and now you have you can set a time limit of 1-6 minutes for the Beetle Battle.
COLOR CHANGE - Start a championship on any circuit. Make your way to Mount. Mayhem. As soon as you reach the grassy area at the end (staying on the path) of the tunnel, turn right. Look near the tree, and you will see the Flower Box. This lets your car, and the computer's, to change colors during the race.
? MODE - Start a championship, and select any circuit. When racing in Coventry Cove, take the jump to Stone Henge, right after the tunnel after the barn. Stop in the middle of Stone Henge. Now drive along the coast, looking behind the stones. You should spot the Flower Box. Now finish the race. Now you can control what comes out of the ? Boxes in Beetle Battle.
TRACK MUSIC - Select championship, and choose any circuit. When racing on Mount. Mayhem, look for the opening to the REALLY deep cave. Instead of going in through the bottom entrance, steer to the left, and jump through the top. You should land on an upper floor. (I can only reach this with the ALien Beetle). When the tunnel forks off, turn the right (the one that goes up). After crossing the bridge, make a sharp left, and the flower box is stuck in the snow near the bridge. Now you edit the music played when racing to Normal or Random.
LADYBUG COLOR CHANGE - Select championship, and choose any circuit. When racing on Inferno Isle, turn to the right before entering the T-Rex compound. Follow the muddy path and then turn left on to the dock. Use the ramp on the dock to land on the house/island in the middle. Look through the rubble, and you will find the Flower Box. Finish the race. Now you can control how fast the Ladybugs change during a Beetle Battle. You can select between: Normal, Slow, Fast, and Insane (which is very annoying).
HANDICAP - TWO PLAYER - Select championship, and select any circuit. When racing on Coventry Cove, make your way the the big junction where the draw bridge, crane, warehouse, and train tracks are. After crossing the river, turn around and look for the gray fence. Drive along the fence, and you will come a cross a whole in it. Enter the hole, and inside the fenced area, you will find a Flower Box. Now you can control the handicap for 2P races. You can choose between: Off, Normal, Slow, Fast, and Insane.
HANDBRAKE POWER - Select championship, and select any circuit except for novice. When racing on Sunset Sands, turn left at the first big pillar in the dunes. You should now be in a road which jumps onto a sand mound which jumps into the top of the big temple. Do not go into the temple yet. Before you actually go inside, explore the "patio" of the temple. You should find a Flower Box in a far corner. Now you can control how powerful the hand brake is. You can select from: Normal, High, and Insane.
Make Cars Pull Over
Extra Beetle Battle Stages
In order to get them, you need to enter the Championship mode and try to smash all the bonus boxes on the respective tracks. You have to collect all 100 points to unlock a new battle stage. All the battle stages are directly based on their track counterparts. Note that it is not necessary that you come in first in the races, but your points are not counted if you are disqualified.
Tip: Use the Police Beetle to get the tracks. It's fast -- and you can force cars to pull over and take your time to collect the boxes.
Police Beetle - In a nod to the Need for Speed franchise, EA has included a hidden Police Beetle in Beetle Adventure Racing -- but you'll have to work hard to get it. After beating the standard Championships, a new "Bonus" mode will open up. Beat this tough challenge (including Wicked Woods) to get the fastest car in the game, the Police Beetle.
