To coincide with the release of The Simpsons feature film on DVD, EA is set to release The Simpsons Game on multiple consoles October 30. In The Simpsons Game, America's favorite yellow family discovers their likenesses have been licensed to appear in a variety of videogames. The Simpsons clan isn't going to take this sitting down. Their adventure takes them through a series of movie and videogame spoofs. IGN recently played one of the levels, Neverquest, which spoofs several fantasy-based games.
Neverquest stars Marge (with Maggie in tow) and Homer. When you enter the world of Neverquest, the two-headed dragon of Patty and Selma is destroying a town full of Halflings (who look a lot like Ralph Wiggum). Broken into several sections, Neverquest is a series of battles with the ultimate goal of killing Homer's sister-in-laws. It's a dream come true for Homer and anyone who's been stuck in line at the DMV.
Homer has his standard attacks, which we've discussed in the past. He's a bruise, who can turn into a large ball and perform charge attacks. He can also transform into a green sloth-like creature capable of spitting toxic waste at enemies. His primary use in Neverquest is as a fighter, clearing out the Moe-like goblins. Marge comes equipped with one power -- the ability to unite others to her cause. With bullhorn in hand, she calls the Halflings to her and commands them to attack her enemies. She's very convincing in her calls to the troops, offering such eloquent statements as: "I'm like Gandalf, but sexy."
