    The Simpsons Arcade continues EA's hot streak of successfully bringing iconic franchises to the iPhone.

    It's a shame that this engrossing title has a glitchy, unreliable save function, a huge drawback on a device known for constant interruptions. Still, for a marathon gaming session on a long train ride, The Simpsons Arcade is far more "Woo-hoo!" than "D'oh!"

    The arcade game has more variety and you can play as Marge, Bart, and Lisa, in addition to Homer.

    The animation is top-notch, there are some nice little minigames and events to break up the beat-'em-up action, and the controls are quite good. But Simpsons Arcade didn't have to be a trifle. With some multiplayer and extra playable characters, it could have had real staying power.

    Good fun, but it's short-lived in the extreme. While £2.99 might not seem much, other App Store games offer far better value for money, making it feel like you're paying a slight premium for the license.

    Despite good looks and lots of variety, The Simpsons Arcade isn't as fun or as funny as it aspires to be.

    The Simpsons Arcade is a decent side-scrolling brawler, but there's no getting around the fact that it is sorely limited by having only one playable character and no multiplayer options to speak of.
