"Bartman Begins," "Medal of Homer," "God of Wharf," "Shadow of the Colossal Donut." All these are mirth-making level names from The Simpsons Game, developer EA's cartoon action assault on consoledom, and we've hunted down some gameplay details to go with the punnery.
The Shadow of the Colossus-inspired level stars Homer. As sour reporter Kent Brockman circles overhead in a helicopter, you'll be scaling the body of a giant beast - which we're betting is either the huge billboard donut-holding boy seen coming to life in one memorable Simpsons episode, or something similar. After all, donuts have to come into it somewhere.
