Good stuff! When I was a kid, I saved up and bought Bart vs. the Space Mutants. I even hung the poster that came with it on the wall in my bedroom. It was an important game in my childhood, but even at the time I realized that it wasn't actually a very good game. I mostly enjoyed it for the first two or three levels, which were difficult and frustrating. I still feel that the first level is probably the best level in 8-bit Simpsons history. Bart controlled horribly in all of the NES platformers. Later, people told me that Bart vs. the World is much, much better, but I tried it and I still prefer Bart vs. the Space Mutants. And Bart vs. Radioactive Man isn't even in contention. The Simpsons: Road Rage and The Simpsons: Hit & Run are both better than all of them...

"What if everything you see is more than what you see--the person next to you is a warrior and the space that appears empty is a secret door to another world? What if something appears that shouldn't? You either dismiss it, or you accept that there is much more to the world than you think. Perhaps it really is a doorway, and if you choose to go inside, you'll find many unexpected things." - Shigeru Miyamoto

I vaguely remember making it to one of those sliding tile picture puzzles and turning it off and never touching it again.

I thought Bart vs. the Space Mutants was actually a pretty decent game, but Bart vs. the World was a mess.

Thanks for reading, gentlemen!

Vs. the World is a mess, as are most early Simpsons games. It especially irks me that they all had such terrible physics, like the developers were 100% clueless just how shitty they were. It's like they thought, "Hey, it worked for the last game, let's use it again!"

Vs. the World is bad, Space Mutants--while better than World--is meh, but neither of those are nearly as bad as Bartman Meets Radioactive Man or Escape from Camp Deadly.

One last thing: while I did just bash Space Mutants, I will say that it at least tried to do something interesting and unique.

Great review, Joe. I wasn't sure if the gimmick would hold, but it really did. You always impress me with all the new ways you take to approaching your reviews. I never know what I'm going to get from a Joe review, but I know it will always be good.


Note to gamers: when someone shoots you in the face, they aren't "gay." They are "psychopathic."
