    16 levels. 4 "chapters"

    -There's the "introduction chapter" where the characters become aware they're in a game.

    -The "treehouse of horror" chapter with some Kodo & Kang action & some spoofs on THOH encounters (day of the dolphin, lard lad fight, etc)

    -The "videogame spoof" chapter where they find they've been leased to multiple games... grand theft scratchy, medal of homor, etc

    And no one knows what the 4th chapter is yet. Also unclear is if the 16 levels are divided equally into 4 levels per chapter.
    I've been accused of vulgarity. I say that's bullshit!

    I've also looked into the spiderpig thing a bit more (though why bother when it had to be some idiotic rumour) In a forum for the game a whole bunch of stupid people were saying stuff like "Zomg! I hear spiderpig is like the secret character!" then the next one is "yeah I work at EA games and you get him if you get 100% then you play in a nighttime version of springfield slinging webs and saving citizens to the spiderpig theme"

    "OMG U serious!"
    "He's lying, that'd be completely retarded"
    "he works there so how would you know"
    "he could obviously be making up this crap"
    "nu uh"

    and so on, so I have an extremely strong feeling our beloved friend spiderpig will not be making it to the game, as if it seriously concerced us anyway. Praise him!

    Here's a tip. Anyone who says they work for a game company and is giving out "top secret info" is lying. Mainly because if it got tracked back to them and it was true, they'd lose their job.

    I've known multiple people who tested at different companies... always tight lipped... and I have a buddy who's a producer at a company currently... I'm lucky if I get a title of his game out of him... no details.

    seems logical to me,no one would risk their job only to give a secret away on the internet.

    I dunno there have been leaks for big games before, but I have my suspicions in those cases its intentional and a really sneaky form of viral marketing.

    I played more of this today and Marge is a damn blast to play. The multiplayer in this honestly makes it way funner, when I get this my friend and I want to play it together.

    Though Marge is kind of an ass in this game. lol I mean really, its like the moment she looks in the instruction manual she goes into eternal bitch mode. I guess its expected bizzarely.

    The Medal of Homer level is pretty fun too. Homer is also really fun to play because his abilities are pretty varied. Plus ironically he's technically the fastest thanks to Homerball and I always like speed. So far I think Marge, Homer, Lisa, and Bart in that order are the best (Maggie's really a "special move" of Marge's in a way so she doesn't count.)

    Lisa is really fun but I have a feeling she'll be funner when playing 2-player than one player because when she goes into Buddha mode, if the other character is being controlled you can put together a nasty team where Lisa can drop stuff and pick people up while the other player gets in there.

    Like I said before Bart is really, really basic. Runs, Jumps, climbes, glides, grapples, has a chargable projectile. He's the platformer character so he's really not the funnest especially in comparison to the others, though he's necessary. You always need the jack-of-all-trades guy.

    Still kinda hope Piggy isn't a secret character, though I have to admit it'd be funny since he'd probably have every power. Friend also suggested Ralph would be really entertaining, he noticed he shows up in the most random places in the cut scenes. Having an unlockable scenerio where he has a kind of "he did all this in the meantime, and thats how he got to so and so" adventure would be fun and bizzarely fitting but that probably won't be so. Frink would be pretty fun too I say.

    A Futurama character as a sole secret guy would beyond awesome too but thats probably even less possible. Imagine what could be done with a guy like Fry in a game about video game allusions.

    Hey Kiyosuki, how long would you say the levels go on for? I was a bit surprised when I found out there would only be 16 levels since I loved all the different missions in Hit and Run, becuase although it's the simpsons, I don't want a game I'll beat in two days.

    New video of Selmatty, the dragon from Neverquest. I'm interested in the 2-D styled gameplay from :25 to :30.

    The levels I played were decently long but they weren't huge area sections with multiple quests or anything. Its not that kind of game, its really at its core a traditional level by level game.

    The levels arn't short though. At least...once again what I played (The temple stage which is the first stage, Marge's mob stage, and a bit of Medal of Homer.)

    ^Thanks a lot, as long as they keep me playing for a while, I'm good. And I'll always end up spending the longest time trying to get 100% on everything anyway.

    In Gamehead on Gametrailers they revealed that the secret character was Will Wright, along with an interview with him.

    HOMER: AAHHH! A nerd!
    WRIGHT: The Nerdiest nerd in all of the known Computerverse!
    LISA: Dad, thats Will Wright designer for Sim City and The Sims.
    WRIGHT: I'm Will Wright Bitch!

    I know, it's just a completerly unbelievable one to come up with, I mean why make some random guy that made the sims a character, I said "your kidding" because that was just kind of stupid to make up or see somewhere.

    There is no way Spider Pig would be a character in the game. It's been said several time that the game has no relation to the movie, and Spider Pig hasn't exactly shown up on the show.

    So will the 360 version on this game have online multiplayer, or just things available to download?
