After being first released on NES in 1991, Simpsons: The – Bart Vs. The Space Mutants was also built a version on the Sega Genesis platform. Like the NES version, the player has the task of controlling Bart Simpson to fight the alien invasion. To invade Earth, aliens will have to collect many different objects on Earth to build a machine. They call it the ultimate weapon. Therefore, the players have to destroy it and regain items from aliens. This game has many stages, each of which will take you to a separate area to perform the task. Compared to the NES platform, the image of the version for Sega received better reviews. Also, the colors are brighter and more transparent, as well as the movement of the character is smoother.
Simpsons: The – Bart vs. The Space Mutants requires gamers to collect or destroy different objects in each stage. There are all five stages for the player to conquer. At the end of each stage, you have to fight a boss. To complete a stage, you need to collect or change the items according to the instructions of the game. Besides, you must avoid colliding with other players along the way. Some aliens will appear in their pure form. Others are capable of posing as Earthlings. From there, players need to have many smart moves to overcome aliens. In the case of aliens disguised as Earthlings, you only need to use special glasses (also known as X-ray glasses) to distinguish. When you discover aliens disguised as ordinary people, you need to jump on their heads to remove them from the screen.
With the face of many aliens, the game also provides two other support weapons, including rockets and cherry bombs. You can also buy them with coins that you collected on the way. Besides the main task of preventing aliens from collecting items, you can also participate in many mini-games and must convince the Simpsons family member to help Bart.
