Video Game Ad of the Day: The Simpsons: Bart’s Nightmare

A guilty pleasure.

The Simpsons: Bart’s Nightmare was the family’s first original outing for 16-bit consoles. Bart falls asleep while studying for a test or writing a paper or something, and you have to round up the lost pages from his work in a variety of mini-games that range from good to downright terrible. This ad is for the later Mega Drive release – the game was exclusive to the Super Nintendo for a short time.


Video Game Ad of the Day: WWF WrestleMania Steel Cage Challenge

Lemme tell ya something, Mean Gene!

WWF WrestleMania Steel Cage Challenge was the third and final WWF game published by Acclaim for the NES, but the first and only one to be released on the Master System. It was the first home console wrestling game to feature steel cage matches. The wrestlers featured in the game differ based on the system – Hulk Hogan, Randy Savage, I.R.S., Ted DiBiase, Bret Hart and the Undertaker are in both versions, while Roddy Piper, Jake “The Snake” Roberts, The Mountie and Sid Justice are NES exclusive and Ric Flair, Tatanka, Papa Shango and Shawn Michaels are Master System exclusive.

Video Game Ad of the Day: Super Star Wars

Not as good as you remember.

Super Star Wars came out at a time when the Star Wars saga was in a kind of hiatus – 10 years or so after the release of the Return of the Jedi, almost a decade before the prequels, and just prior to the onslaught of Star Wars video games. It’s technically accomplished, but needlessly difficult.
