Description of The Simpsons: Bart vs. the Space Mutants for NES

In the single player game, Bart Simpson is the only one who knows of the aliens' secret plan and he has to stop them from collecting the items they need to build their weapons to take over the world. In each level, Bart must collect a certain number of a specific item, i.e. purple objects, hats, balloons, exit signs or nuclear rods, before he meets up with a boss at the end of the level.

The bosses, like the levels, are familiar to fans of the Simpsons animated series and some of the television humor does appear in the game: in the first level Bart can make a prank call to Moe in order for him to run outside so that the player can spray paint his purple shirt.

Bart is only able to withstand two direct hits, and after three lives it is Game Over (if there are no continues or passwords available). Collecting Krusty icons can provide an extra life, and there are a variety of juvenile weapons to collect and use (Spray paint in Level 1, Slingshot in Level 3, Dart Gun in Level 4). Bart can also collect coins to purchase weapons or to gain an extra life.

The major defensive weapons are x-ray glasses that reveal which of the Springfield citizens are human and which are aliens in disguise (similar to the film They Live). Jumping on the aliens will force them to flee the human body and leave behind an icon that begins to spell one of the Simpson's family names (i.e. Homer, Maggie, Marge or Lisa). If Bart manages to jump on enough aliens to spell out the family member's name, that family member will appear to assist him in defeating the boss. However, if Bart jumps on a human being, he will take damage.

Although Bart fights aliens in this game, he does not fight Kang and Kodos, the two aliens that appear regularly on the show in Treehouse of Horror and other episodes.
