"The Simpsons Arcade Game is a beat em up classic. Back in the glory days of the arcade, Konami was king with games like Ninja Turtles and the amazing X-Men Arcade. It wasn't uncommon to see a group of people team up and beat the games from start to finish.
Simpsons Arcade debuted in the spring of 1991 and looking back, you can really tell. Besides the Simpson family, you won't find too many familiar characters. Mr. Burns and Smithers don't sound the same as they do on the show, and some character models don't match their counterparts from the show."
