Check out some of the best games from one of the most famous families of all time.
8. Bart against the mutants of space
The Simpsons’ first game wasn’t quite the linear platform game audiences might have expected, but many players have fond memories of it. You played the part of Bart trying to stop an alien invasion by doing unexpected things like getting rid of purple items or pulling everyone’s hats off, which was an interesting idea back then because you weren’t not supposed to reach the end of the level.
Some objects could just be sprayed, but others were like puzzles that had to be solved, like dropping leaves on them. If you collected all the letters of a family member’s name, like Maggie in the first step, you would have her help fighting the end-level bosses.
The Genesis version of the game was the best as it was released a year later than the other versions on NES, Master System, and PC, fixing several of their issues. It had better graphics and more buttons to work with, eliminating the need for weird button combinations, although it was still a little weird to control.
