Good shout :D . I liked the MD version too.
I was joking sorry mate :/ Although I've got it on a few differnt ports....it's one bad game. But hey, it stood out in the arcade til you actually played it, and one mans meat is another mans poison so...

I only ever saw Paperboy with Handlebars.

If there was another control method for this game i would imagine it would not be as easy to control the main character.

I never actually liked the game, but my friend was a whizz at it.

Street Fighter II Champion Edition was .... well .... the champion of the arcade :D (in my opinion)
I was also a big fan of Super Hang-On (with that awesome full size ride on bike), Outrun (that awesome sit in car) and Afterburner (that awesome cockpit) ..... notice a bit of a trend here?

It did, but unfortunately none of the ones we hoped for.
It saw release on the PC and C64 -- http://www.mobygames.com/game/simpsons-arcade-game
Which as you can guess, theyre not even a patch on the Arcade original
