Bart Simpson and his revolution against idealised images of domestic bliss are heading towards your Speccy screens this autumn with the release of The Simpsons’ game: Bart Vs The Space Mutants! T’riffic, eh?
It’s an arcade adventure starring you as Bart, the world’s greatest under-achiever, and his bizarre family of yellow, errm, people (?). Bart’s town of Springfield has been invaded by yucky space mutants with dangly bits who are taking over the bodies of Springfield’s residents. Bart’s in a bit of a pickle because he’s the only person that knows of this (thanks to his X-ray specs) and, due to the fact he’s always telling porkies, no-one believes him. The young Simpson sets out on his own to vanquish the mutants (by leaping on their heads, of all the preposterous things).
It’s a five-level game, based on the Nintendo version raved over by console players, and we’ll be checking out the Speccy version next issue. So, get ready to get everyone playing ‘Happy Families’ with the Simpsons, coming this September from Ocean (who the hell else?!)!
