Mr. Burns organizes a secret cabal of Springfield's most powerful citizens, and Krusty. They entrust Waylon Smithers with a hidden microchip containing the plans to Project: Operation Mission, which was their plan to steal all of Springfield's natural resources or something, the narrator gives up coming up with a story at this point assuming the player has skipped it. The USB is hidden inside a donut and as Smithers exits the building, he bumps into Homer. Homer takes the unexpected donut from Smithers, but is then attacked by some goons who want it back. Mayor Quimby takes the donut and gets into a car and drives off. Homer decides that he must get the donut back
Throughout the level, Quimby will throw bombs at Homer from his car. Outside the Kwik-E-Mart, Homer encounters and fights Chief Wiggum. Wiggum attacks Homer with his baton and taser. Once Wiggum is defeated, Homer moves on to the next area. Eventually, Homer gets closer to Quimby's car and starts to chase after it as Quimby throws bombs. The car stops at Krusty Burger where Homer then fights off goons as Quimby hides in the trunk of the car.
