    Default Simpsons Video Games! (56k warning)

    Well, most Simpson's games are pure crap, but once in a while some good ones come out of the woodwork. These Nintendo games pretty much suck, except for one. Krusty's Fun House is a pretty good game. I never really conquered it, but it's a great puzzle game. I never really understood the Bart vs The Space Aliens. What was the point of the game?

    Arcade:



    This is a machine that would make me very happy. I don't know anyone that wouldn't like to have this one.



    Never played it has anyone played it? If so is it any good?

    8 bit systems ( Nintendo, Sega, Amiga, etc...)


    I never understood the game nor could I pass the first stage. Did this game come with 3D glasses.

    Gameboy: Most of these game are pure crap! Except Krusty's Fun House

    Of course, the Arcade game is the best of the bunch.

    I never really understood Bart Vs. the Space Mutants either, but i at least found it fun to play. Really there is only one good simpsons game and that's Hit and Run.

    Krusty's Fun House was the bomb

    Bart Vs. the Space Mutants (Genesis or NES) is always awesome

    Yet, everyone agrees KONAMI's Simpsons Arcade is flawless
    These cartridges are dirty as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore!

    I liked Vs. The Space Mutants. I also liked Barts nightmare, but I know that I'm on of the few on that one. The absolute hands down best simpsons game was Simpsons Arcade. And njiska, because its very obvious that you have never played the arcade game, I highly suggest you do so. A halfway decent GTA knockoff is not even CLOSE to the pure awesome that is the arcade game.

    Well, I used to love Bart Vs. The Space Mutants when I was young (e.g. 12 years old).. I would play it for hours and could actually get to level 2 (rolls eyes).. I decided a few months ago to pop it in the NES and try it out with a friend.. after all, we used to love the game. It was so hard for us to play, we had to cheat with Game Genie. And here is the pathetic part.. we still could not defeat level 1 even while cheating. So, yes, in my opinion the game really does suck, since you have limited time and limited lives. The Bart Vs. The World game was fun when I was young, as it had mini-games in it which I used to enjoy, but once again, that was when I was young. I am less patient today!!

    The arcade game is the greatest! It's my favorite arcade game and one of my favorite video games ever. Unfortunately, there are no other similar Simpsons games, as this was one of those early 90's 4-player era games (e.g. X-Men, TMNT, Dinosaur Hunter).

    I thoroughly enjoy Bart vs the Space Mutants.

    If you watch the cinematic to each level, you'll understand the goals. First level, you must get rid of purple things, second is hats, third is balloons, fourth is exit signs...

    You get rid of the objects by any means necessary, spraypaint, slingshot, rockets, etc etc. You cannot fight the boss until these goals are met.

    the simpsons arcade is the best one by far, i keep waiting for it to be on some kind of bonus on a current simpsons game. the simpsons bowling is pretty funny to play, i remember our arcade had it for a short time.

    Nobody watches cinematics anyway.

    That's the only possible way so many people can think Final Fantasy has a good, original story.

    On the SNES there was Bart's Nightmare - more fun than the NES Simpsons games, though with difficulty that will tear your cornhole a new one. There was also Virtual Bart, though by then I had taken a break from consoles and was more into PC gaming, so I can't really say what this is like. I have a strong feeling it sucks.

    Then there's Krusty's Fun House - sorta Lemmings meets the Krion Conquest.

    All told - up until the PSX came out and Acclaim gifted us with 1,000 spinoffs of every license:

    Arcade:
    Simpsons (2P and 4P versions)

    NES:
    The Simpsons: Bart vs. the Space Mutants
    The Simpsons: Bart vs. the World
    The Simpsons: Bart vs. Radioactive Man
    Krusty's Fun House

    SNES:
    The Simpsons: Bart's Nightmare
    Krusty's Super Fun House
    The Simpsons: Virtua Bart

    What no love for Bart's Nightmare?

    I never really enjoyed any of the NES Simpsons titles but I liked a few of the SNES games.

    Yes, the arcade version of Simpsons is an undisputed classic and will allways be my favorite of the series.

    Iwon't knock "Kusrty's Funhouse" (it was kinda fun) but any other Simpsons unleashed upon the NES was utter junk.

    "Space Mutants" was all around bad. Terrible control and its implementation is pretty crappy as well.


    Simpsons Aracde was all around arcade awesomeness.

    Possibility is infinity! You must be satisfied!

    I remember always picking Marge in one of the games because she was holding a vaccum cleaner as a weapon. That would allow for great reach.
    I still can't remember the name of that game though... maybe these pics will help.

    Yep, Marge had her vacuum in the arcade game. (In the PC port of the arcade game, she used a purse, but the PC port is somewhat lacking: no combo moves.)

    Very good recap!!!, i remember playing Bart Vs. the world and Bart Vs. the space mutants for NES. Very difficult games imo. Also i remember that i had finished The Simpsons arcade in a very obscure arcade with only...¡2 coins!!! (yes, the trick was that every coin put 20 credits hehe)...
    Krusty´s super funhouse was a hit too, i spent a lot of hours playing with that strange puzzles...

    Cheers,

    Matías

    I have played through the arcade version on MAME. Decent game, worth checking out.
    I also always liked Bart VS The Space Mutants. Never beaten it, but it brings back memories

    Same with Bart VS The World, brings back memories. I have beaten this game when it was new. Also got the secret ending
    Played this game not long ago and the controllers are damn hard. I wonder how I manage to beat it pretty easy when I was a kid, considering the controllers.

    I never really cared for the NES simpsons games, But I think might have to give Krusty's Fun House a try.

    Krusty's Fun House (not unlike Space Mutants) was released on a great many other platforms aside from the NES.
