The Simpsons: Treehouse Of Horror is an impressive fan made homage to the classic Simpsons Arcade game.
It’s a fun side scrolling arcade brawler that revolves around Homer, Bart and Krusty thwarting an alien invasion orchestrated by everyones favourite green tentacled extra terrestrials – Kang and Kodos. It features an extensive story mode, full of in-jokes, unlockable sidekicks, mini-games, boss battles, fun special moves and lots of cameos (not only from the Simpsons, but Futurama and Family Guy too).
If that’s not enough, there are also two bonus campaigns, one allowing you to help Mr Burns defend his manor, and the other allowing you to play as Peter Griffin, battling his way through Quahog and Springfield (and yes he does fight the chicken). The game works perfectly with a 360 control pad (just map the buttons in the settings menu), allowing you to input the Street Fighter style button combos for special moves with ease (down, forward, attack. etc.)
Development is pretty much completed on Treehouse of Horror, but the dev is very keen to hear any feedback. The nature of the game (side scrolling beat-em-up) means that gameplay can be a little shallow, but it easily surpasses the original Simpsons Arcade game on all fronts – gameplay, variety and fun. You’re never sure who or what is going to turn up next, and is full of more sugary goodness than a Lard Lad Donut. mmmm donuts….
