THE SIMPSONS - ARCADE GAME
arcade game by Konami is a Double Dragon rip off, with
Simpson characters. It's far better than Double Dragon
though - although it still isn't very good. On the
positive side, it's big with detailed levels and
characters, but unfortunately they are badly drawn and
it's very glitchy. Controlling the main character is
easy, but sometimes unresponsive which makes fighting
the bad guys annoying and frustrating. It's a good
attempt at cramming so much in on the C64, but I would
have preferred less content with more quality. It's
quite a challenge to beat the game as there are lots of
long levels with tough enemies. It's a good attempt at a
conversion of the arcade game, but it's not going to
blow you away. It's worth checking out if this is your
kind of game.

SO WHAT HAPPENS?:
At the end of the final
level I had to fight a robot, which was Mr. Burns in a
metal suit. Once I had beaten the crap out of him for a
long time, the suit exploded to reveal the frail old
fella. I smacked him about a bit and then the game
ended. The end sequence shows Maggie sticking a dummy in
Mr. Burn's mouth, and then there's a shot of the
re-united Simpson family with a multicoloured
background. Finally there is a scene where the Simpsons
are seen walking off down the road while the game
credits roll overhead and the Simpsons theme tune plays.
- Neil: Can't ask for much more than
that! Well, you could... but hey! Top ending! 8/10.
I'm actually very impressed! This ending has a few
layers to it. I love the graphics and effects, but the
final sequence is a little ... erm ... amateurish. All
in all a great ending, but not as polished as what it
could have been. 8/10 from me too.
- Andrew Fisher:
I was really impressed when I first saw this in
emulation - the presentation of the game is excellent,
although the game itself does get a bit repetitive. I
think the ending itself is very good, particularly the
colour cycling and the family walking into the distance
with the credits in the sky.
- Andy Vaisey:
A shame that the in-game GFX don't quite match the
colourful, cartoony bitmaps, but it's a nice enough
ending. Hate the music though, very discordant...
- Brendan Phoenix:
Top quality ending - as faithful to the arcade as you
could expect given the limitations of the C64. Top marks
A very good ending with nice graphics, sound and
animation. Check this one out dudes!
