Tropedia

  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

The Simpsons Game is a platformer based on The Simpsons. It's also an Affectionate Parody of loads and loads of other games, and lampshades just about every Trope they can think to lampshade.

Each character has their own special powers: Homer can become a giant belly and smash into things; Bart becomes Bartman, and is able to glide and shoot with his slingshot; Lisa can harness the power of the Buddha and stun enemies with her saxophone; and Marge can rally up supporters and is able to send Maggie into small gaps.

During the game, Bart finds the manual to The Simpsons Game, from which the family discovers their superpowers. Soon afterwards, there is an Alien Invasion. After that, the family is sucked into their computer and starts playing through levels based on other video games. Finally, they attack the fortress of the creator, Matt Groening, and ultimately make a stairway to heaven in order to battle William Shakespeare, Benjamin Franklin, and God.

Notable that it came out a few months after The Simpsons Movie was released, although they aren't connected beyond both being Simpsons. Also gets points for having both the writers and the original voice cast brought on to help with its development.


Tropes used in The Simpsons Game include:
