6. Bart vs The Space Mutants (Multi, 1991)
This was the big one. The 16-bit (with 8-bit conversions) Simpsons game that looked like the show, only you could play it. And it still holds up pretty well, thanks to smooth scrolling, colourful visuals and a neat 'X-Ray Specs' mode that lets you see the same world, only now the space mutants are no longer disguised as normal people. Yes, the skateboarding bit is fun, and no, I still can't get off the first level (it's not my fault, it's the reed! Er... I mean, 'pad'), but I like this one. Clunky, basic but dressed up in 1991's finest clothes, this was something of a pleasant surprise when I picked it up in a second-hand shop recently. Even if Bart's 'Eat My Shorts' begins to grate after a few deaths. Well, one. OK, half-way through the first one.
