The Simpsons: Arcade Game hits the PlayStation Network tomorrow (free for PlayStation Plus subscribers). Sony have worked with Gracie Films and Fox to time the release of the game with the 500th episode of The Simpsons so that fans of the show could experience the classic game during an important milestone for the series.
The PS3 version of the game is a port of the original, but with various gameplay modes and bonus content added along the way. The game has many modes including:
- Freeplay – the usual “unlimited continues” mode found in most arcade-to-console ports.
- Quarters – there are two Quarters modes available. One Quarters mode sees players pulling credits from the same pool, while the other gives each player their own stash.
- Survival – this mode is the ultimate test because it gives you just one life to progress through the game.
