A free version of the popular Simpsons Arcade game has just been released. It allows you to play the first level of the game completely free before deciding if you want to pay to upgrade to the full version. If you are a fan of the Simpsons or just love getting something for nothing then this is worth a look at.

Simpsons Arcade – Free is a fun platform game where you play as Homer, chasing through Springfield looking for a mystery doughnut. The controls are simple with a virtual D-Pad and action buttons to punch, grab and flip, kick, butt slam, jump, pick up and throw objects, belly flop, and dodge enemies. The graphics are colourful and you really feel like you are in an episode of The Simpsons.  The full version of Simpsons Arcade has been a huge hit in the app store for sometime now but some users may not have wanted to pay out $4.99 without playing the game first. Try before you buy and lite versions of games are a great way for developers to appeal to these users by giving them limited versions or certain levels to test drive before they purchase and this is a great example.

The developers boast that this first level is enough for everyone to fall in love with this game so much that they will want to upgrade to the full version. Did you download the free version? Did it pursuade you to upgrade? Let us know in the comments.
