Based on the popular animated series, The Simpsons is a side-scrolling combat game similar to such arcade titles as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and X-Men. Four of The Simpsons characters are playable, each with a different weapon: Marge wields a vacuum cleaner; Bart rides his skateboard; Lisa has a jump rope; and Homer uses his arms, legs, and belly. Other weapons such as hammers, bowling balls, and dogs are available. Up to four players battle their way through various Springfield locations, battling zombies, winos, clowns, Mr. Burns, and other enemies. The graphics, animations, humor, and sound effects (including voices by actors from the show) are extremely faithful to the television series, giving the game the look and feel of an interactive episode. Adding to the fun are cameo appearances by Barney, Milhouse, and others, and a unique feature allowing two-character moves, such as Bart and Lisa teaming up for a rolling attack. ~ Brett Alan Weiss, All Game Guide
