EA reveals The Simpsons Arcade for iPhone

It's a throwback to the old arcade games based on The Simpsons in the 1990s, but it's on a very new platform.

It's a throwback to the old arcade games based on The Simpsons in the 1990s, but it's on a very new platform.

The Simpsons Arcade, which should hit the iTunes App Store any day now, tasks players to "join Homer on a hilarious chase through Springfield in drooling pursuit of frosted fried dough. Clueless and hungry, he has no idea that his desired doughnut is the key to a devious scheme hatched by sinister Springfield forces."

It's a side-scrolling, arcade style action game featuring 25 different levels, six different environments (including Krusty Land and Downtown Springfield) plus voices from the show's main talent. Along with the primary old-school action, players will see three different minigames; Doughnut Dreams, a balloon popping game called Inflato Head, and an accelerometer-based slapping game called Slap Homer.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott


My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
