The Simpsons Arcade in Review: Homer – Is there anything he can’t do?

Homer lands on the iPhone with The Simpsons Arcade (D’oh!)

There’s a reason why gamers dig EA. Within a short and recent time span, they have released the cult classic Dragon’s Lair and arguably the best damn racer on the iPhone – Need for Speed Shift. Well now you can also add the much beloved and (still) popular animated TV series to the list – The Simspons Arcade. And for many of you, any mention of the words ‘Simpsons’ and ‘arcade game’ will surely bring back memories of the original smash ’em up Simpsons Arcade title that was first released by Konami in 1991.

Get ready for doughnut-chasing daredeviltry on iPhone® and iPod touch®.
Join Homer on a hilarious chase through Springfield in drooling pursuit of frosted fried dough. Clueless and hungry, he has no idea that his desired doughnut is the key to a devious scheme hatched by sinister Springfield forces…

With art work and voices performed by the original cast ‘n crew of the show, along with the 25+ levels of Homer mayhem (and mini-games!), EA are hoping this latest App Store offering will be a hit among all fans of the show. If you love all things Homer, I suggest you stop whatever you’re doing and pick up the great lookin’ The Simpsons Arcade now. More info and screenies after the gap!
