Featured Game

The Simpsons Arcade Game

popular arcade side-scrolling beat 'em up

The Simpsons Arcade Game is a side-scrolling beat ‘em up video game developed and published by Konami for arcades.  Based on the television animated series The Simpsons, the game was released in North American arcades on March 4, 1991 midway through the second season of the television show.

Released in arcades only under the title “The Simpsons” the game was rebranded as “The Simpsons Arcade Game” when it was ported to the Commodore 64 and MS-DOS later in the year.   This was done to both inform customers that the game was a port of the Arcade game and to distinguish it from other Simpsons games on the market as well as in development.
