The Duke cousins must help Hazzard County's local foster home to pay off their debt in order to keep it up-and-running because Boss Hogg has raised the mortgage on it and is having the interest compounded hourly in order to build a statue of himself to be located in the town square and to build a local water reservoir on the site of the foster home's location with the help of Rosco. The player must help the Dukes complete a series of tasks in order to save the foster home before it gets shut down completely. There is also a free roam feature which allows the player to roam all of Hazzard County and enjoy the freedom of ramping various objects in order to unlock hidden objects in this game.
