Defeat enemies as Homer Simpson
EA Mobile has introduced its first Simpsons-themed game for the iPhone and iPod touch, The Simpson Arcade. Players take control of Homer Simpson as he chases a donut, but, as a result, ends up saving the town of Springfield. During this arcade-style adventure, users can punch, grab, kick, butt slam, throw items, and belly-flop onto enemies. Earned power-ups can be used by Homer to call in family reinforcements such as Bart or Marge
The Simpson Arcade consists of over 25 different levels, spanning 6 environments including Krusty Land and Channel Six, with a wide range of characters from Bumblebee man to Chief Wiggum. Voiceovers have been recorded by the same actors from the Simpsons TV series, helping to create the authentic feel of the show. Players can also take part in several mini-games, or listen to their own music content while playing.
Aside from the new game, EA Mobile has also released new screenshots for Need for Speed SHIFT and Spore Creatures, as well as new multiplayer features for Madden NFL 10, Tiger Woods PGA TOUR, and Command & Conquer Red Alert.
The Simpsons Arcade is said to be released sometime this month, and has yet to be given a price.
