The Simpsons arcade- by EA


This one seems to have flown in under the radar. Much of the conversation between the Pocket Gamer staff is via direct Simpsons quotes, but The Simpsons Arcade from EA Mobile has rather caught us by surprise.
I asked EA and they confirmed it, telling me to stay put until official annoncement

Holy crap!!! My favorite game as a kid... Still one of my favorites... I actually almost beat this once too. I can't wait for this. Thank you EA for reviving the real arcade classics.

Although it's not actually a conversion of the awesome Konami coin-op from 1991, it does play pretty much the same and is probably about as close as we're ever going to see.

I think only one other poster here noticed that this is not the arcade game we all know and love that deserves a modern online coop release. It is in fact a new game where we play as homer on a quest to get his donut back. It's only comparable to the arcade game in it's beat em up gameplay. While it's still very likely that it will be a good game, people shouldn't get their hopes up and confuse it with the original beat em up classic.

Can't wait. I remember spending many many quarters on this game.

I'm also hoping that they'll bring the Michael Jackson arcade game to the iPhone.
