I seriously haven’t played this since I was a kid on my uncle’s intelliVision.

I was gonna put that in but didn’t know if you’d get it.

I have the GBA game.

Now I wanna play that... but I’m already playing “Frogger”!

So many games, and so little time.

It’s more fun to be in direct intentional competition than to just beat some random person’s score just because.

I don’t have many (any) GameBoy partners around here.

And, remember, it was you who declared war in every game, instead of just “Camp Deadly”.

The English version was $45 and the Japanese version was $10.

So I got the Japanese version which is identical except for the title screen

Still, good game and nice score!

You are not verifying that it is your gameplay.

You need to have a hard copy of your screen name, or a personal identifier, and present it in your stills and videos.

The stills associated with this score are non-visible, and the video only confirms the score was reached but not by whom.

Just write your screenname and initials on a card or a slip of paper or carve it into granite, it has to be a hard copy.

I’ll vote “yes,” but that’s why people are voting “no”.

Only the very stupid gamer doesn’t believe a GameBoy Color is GameBoy compatible, in accordance with the site rules.

Only the very stupid gamer thinks “Metroid II” is not an original GameBoy game, but a GameBoy Color release.

“Turrican” is delightfully entertaining but the gameplay is very difficult.

It is in the same realm as “Metroid” but the inability to shoot upwards and the randomness of enemy movement makes some very simple enemies impossible to beat, and there doesn’t seem to be an option to save gameplay so it’s more of an endurance test than anything else.

You take hits from all sides, some enemies can go through walls, and there are many routes and dead-ends on a time limit so it’s kinda like “Where do I go? Leave me alone! I don’t have time to explore this vast, lush world while things I should be able to kill but can’t kill keep hitting me!”

I cannot locate a “very hard” setting in the game and there’s no “hard” setting in the listings, so I figured it was a misappropriation, titling a game that doesn’t exist.

Yes, my official high score is 947 and I was playing to beat that but I hurt my thumb playing “Batman” so I was only able to play up to 679, which still honorably takes the lead.

But we all know my actual high score so even if you come back around and beat me, unless you can run up a thousand points, you know you didn’t really win.

I’ll come back and replay it in a few weeks.

This one really does require a lot of both thumbs.

This is the correct game for this listing.

This is NOT a GameBoy color game, despite its being played on a GameBoy compatible GameBoy Color.

It actually has so little to do with the show that the show had to make a summer camp episode which was the season premiere of the following year’s season to make the game actually tie-in with the show.

I’m not complaining about the source, But the game itself: designed by developers and written by programmers and played by testers before it was authorized and approved for release.

“Tiny Toon Adventures” and “Batman The Animated series” are great gameboy titles, both also produced by Fox at around the same time.

The programmers made everything too big, in an effort to make sure the graphics came through as recognizably “Simpsons” that there’s no room to see what’s coming next. The hit detection is ridiculously picky. The way to find and then beat bosses is counter-intuitive. The first branch is exactly as high as the second branch but to reach the second branch you have to climb the tree, but you don’t have to climb the tree because you can just jump to get it, so when you come to the first boss, unless you’ve played before or just know, you won’t know to climb the tree and you’ll probably jump in the river. And in the mess hall, there’s never enough food. In the underground passageways the atoms are enormous and seem to move and randomly oscillating rates like real atoms so it’s almost impossible to dodge them. The killer wasps are ridiculous!

You really need to give more evidence than an image of a score on a screen.

You should write your username on a card, photograph it and your full screen, along with a closup of the score and your card, and a shot of the title screen and your card so that we can see that yes you played and yes this is the game you played.

Some people even photograph the system with the game in, with the screen, along with your card.

It can be any card, tear a tab off a cereal box and use that.

If this were given to me as a child, I’d think it was a punishment.

Also, there’s no high score screen, but at least your final score does stay onscreen until you press a button.

This is considered the best “Simpsons” game on GameBoy.

There is no high score screen and your final score only shows for about three seconds.

I think it’s just as good as “Camp Deadly”, which sucks.

I’m pretty sure “Itchy and Scratchy Golf” is the good one.

Playing for points is very different from playing for lines and levels, which I’ve always done. You have to keep losing, and you will, until you hit a game where the tetrises are actually coming, then you get points; and you have to get as many tetrises as possible before hitting 100 lines when the speed gets too fast to really work in.

That you own the game, an NES, and a card with your name on it does not indicate that you actually played the game.

I can photograph any screen in any arcade, visit some meth heads playing “Tetris” to photograph their screen, and then show you my card beside the cabinet or the game, doesn’t make it my score or even indicate that it could be my score.

In future, put your name beside your score.

I’m voting yes, but please, in future, put your name beside your score.

To catch the lines score you gotta pause it just as it gets going too fast to think, just evacuate the game and pause it. 

 

Then get your camera ready, your score shows on the pause screen so snap that and snap your “game over” screen, and then snap the “high score” menu screen, your high score will be identical to the high score from the game just ended.

Anyone can write their name on a card and hold it beside a screen.

You only get to input your name on the High Score screen, though, if you get the high score.

That high score screen is official to the game.

Why do you need me to hold a card with my screenname on it if you can read my screenname here and see the same screenname on the High Score screen in my evidence?

Why do you need that?

What is giving you doubt that I, zerooskul, am not the same “zerooskul” on the High Score screen?

Why do you need me to print my name unofficially to be placed beside the game’s official graphic?

Surely you understand that I turned the game off after I took the photo and it has no “save” function and that the photo, showing my name and score, is the only record.

At this point I’m just convinced you’re a troll; if you’re not, I apologize.

Perhaps it was a different zerooskul who played simultaneous games, which, even if I cheated by starting at 100,000 points is still way higher than the posted high score from France. Maybe some other zerooskul played it and it wound up in my possession through nefarious means; but I’m the one with the photo, and my login on zoetrope.com, one of the web’s very first social network to which I’ve been a member since 2001 is zerooskul. My youtube is youtube.com/zerooskul.

Are there other zerooskuls running around the web who I might otherwise be?

My  name showcases that this is my game.

Do I need to take a screen shot with a card that says my name taken of the screenshot which bears my name?
