    The Homer 4 Hire Newsletter (currently at Issue 2)

    Ignore the title of the thread. We're at Issue 2.

    Back when I was younger (in 2016 or 2017), I made a 2 sided newsletter called 'Homer 4 Hire Newsletter'. This was basically a simple newsletter which have info about my top 10 scores, and some other stuff, that I don't remember. I think I made 4 issues. However in my room of junk I have since lost them.

    Onto the present day, I decided to restart the newsletter, which has less errors throughout.

    It's simple, but Issue 1's on a one sided piece of paper (On the other side I have a OK drawing of Lisa and a rubbish drawing of Eric Simpson, from 'Maggie and Eric').

    So here it is: Issue one of The Homer 4 Hire Newsletter!

    NEWS:

    It's been 3 years since our last issue, so I've decided
    to bring it back!
    As you can see, Professor Frink is now our new top
    scorer! (see more below)
    See you later!
    ____________________________________________
    So, How did Frink do it?
    (edited to remove Frink Noises)

    Well, it was easy. You just need the right car, I have
    the best in the game, and needed a simple route.
    That route is:
    1) You go to The Stonecutters and pick up Nelson or Lisa.
    2) Once you get to Kamp Krusty, pick up whoever's there
    and go to the shack.
    3) Then, pick up the next person you see and head your
    way to Rancho Relaxo.
    4) Go to the right of the barn and pick up Willie or Bart.
    5) Once at the TNT storage, pick up whoever's there and
    go back to The Stonecutters to do it all again.

    That concludes my 'How Did I Do It'.

    Here is the follow-up of issue 1 of The Homer 4 Hire Newslettler:

    Homer 4 Hire Newsletter
    _______________________________________________
    Friday 3rd July Issue 1 Follow-up $0.01 (Free on NHC)
    _______________________________________________
    My 1st Cent:

    Welcome to the follow-up edition of Issue 1. Have we got
    news for you? Yes! To start, I'm now on the No Homers
    Club, a forum in which I lurked for a long time. My nickname
    is Jakey Prince, and currently, I have a Evergreen Terrace
    logo from 1998 as my avatar. However, it isn't today. Happy
    birthday Yeardley Smith! I have changed my avatar for the
    day, into a Lisa one.
    This wraps up the news, see you later!
    __________________________________________________
    My review of the game:

    Well, let's start with the gameplay.
    It can seem hard at 1st, you don't use the trigger (you use the A
    Button, but I’m more used to using the trigger), the crash detection
    can mess up, (I.E. I miss Krusty Burger, but crash anyway), and
    the hard level can seem easy (because I've played it lots).
    However, the play again level is OK, you can try to beat your high
    scores, and the characters have some funny quotes (my favorite is
    Hans who goes "Nien!" and "Look Out") and the
    easter eggs are in plentiful parts (This is Not a Clue. Or Is It?).

    Overall, I'll give this a 4/5.
    _______________________________________________________
    Characters who cannot be picked up:

    The Goofball,
    Hans
    Rabbi
    Old Jewish Man
    Lurleen Lumpkin
    Dizzy Duff
    Ol' Gil
    Bob Arnold
    Dr. Zweig
    _________________________________________________
    My 2nd Cent:

    That's the end of today's follow-up. (sigh, I wished there was
    an Maggie and Eric mod...). The next issue will be out within a
    few days. Until now, Goodbye!

    This is an interesting idea and something I've wanted to do but I'm too lazy/uncreative. I haven't played any of the games in so long, which is this? Tapped out or the self-titled (which was my favorite.) Would love to see your drawings as well

    Thanks for the praise!

    This is about 'The Simpsons: Road Rage'.

    Anyway, since you asked, here's my Lisa drawing (my drawing of Eric will be up soon) (click on the attachment to see)
