What is it about The Simpsons: Arcade Game?
The Simpsons Arcade is an arcade video game developed by Konami and released in 1991. The title is based on the famous yellow family of Matt Groening. The mode of the game was very simple: take control of the four members of the The Simpson -Whether Homer, Marge, Bart or Lisa- to rescue, through a total of eight levels, little Maggie from the ambitious Montgomery Burns and his henchmen, that is, Waylon Smithers.
- Level 1 – Downtown Springfield
- Level 2 – Krustylandia
- Level 3 – Springfield Cemetery
- Level 4 – Moe’s Tavern
- Level 5 – The Springfield Forest
- Level 6 – Dreamland
- Level 7 – Channel 6
- Level 8 – Nuclear plant
One of the attractions of the video game corresponded to the abilities of the characters to save Maggie. For example, Homer’s only defense was his strong fist; Lisa used a jump rope; Bart did not get rid of his iconic skateboard and Marge defended her little daughter with a vacuum cleaner.
The video game’s plot follows Mr. Burns, along with Mr. Smithers, who steal a very valuable diamond. After escaping from the jewelry store, both collide with Homer Simpson and the diamond accidentally falls into Maggie’s mouth. To avoid being caught, Smithers kidnaps the smallest of the Simpson family; thus the mission of Homer and company will be to rescue her.
Years later, Konami released a new version of The Simpsons: Arcade Game for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and iOS.
