As Edge said themselves this month, EAâ€™s new Simpsons game looks like it could actually be quite good. Rather than using the movie for inspiration, itâ€™s instead going to parody videogames themselves, with a Medal of Homer level, a Frogger inspired mini-game and a nod to We Love Katamari already shown to the press. The Official PlayStation 2 Magazine is the first place to our knowledge to be shown every parody that EA are including. Hereâ€™s a run down:
God of Wharf – Homer turns into a grey Kratos lookalike after eating hot chowder.
Shadow of the Colossal Donut – Bart outruns and tries to defeat a giant Donut Lad statue
Medal of Homer – Homer and Bart try to survive the Normandy Beach landing.
Castle Duffenstien – a secret level in the above. Thatâ€™s no longer a secret.
Pikmin Persuasion – Marge goes anti-videogame, commanding followers.
Sawdust of Time – lots of running along ledges and avoiding buzzsaws.
Metal Beer Solid – stealth! Army Homer sneaks into a barracks to steal booze.
The Windwafter – cape-equipped Bartman floats to new areas, a la Link with his leaf.
Super Hilario Sunshine – set in a dock much like Delfino Bay, right down to the octopi.
Herdy-Nerdy – Lisa uses her saxophone to round upâ€¦ lumberjacks.
Grand Theft Scratchy: Blood Island – no idea.
Also according to Edge, EA have developed and patented three different technologies to get the game as looking as cartoon-like as possible. If you missed the E3 trailer, then you can see it by clicking here. And make sure you pay special attention to the formats at the end.
