Gonk the ape has kidnapped Marge and only you as Homer can rescue her! This is Jim Kitchen's first platform game and you'll be dodging barrels, jumping planes and facing many other challenges while you try to get back the most famous mother in Springfield.
Each level of the game takes on a different challenge homer must overcome in order to save his blue haired lady wife. The game begins with an audio homage to Donkey Kong one of the most famous arcade games of all time as Homer runs through the jungle hurdling barrels. There then follows a test of your timing jumping between planes, some high speed skeeing and shooting action, a logic puzle, underground maze and even a car chase. The arcade elements are actually a litle tougher than you'd expect, which gives the hole game a nice sense of challenge, though nothing is too difficult to overcome with a litle practice
The game has quite a variety of levels that go from side scrolling, to sterrio targeting and even logic and maze elements, thus making for a very unique experience. pluss, when you finally rescue Marge from the hairy paws of Gonk you can play any level of the game you like, all accompanied by some very quirky and unique sound effects and music. .
As with all of Jim's games, Awsome homer uses Sapi to make the game self voicing, and is entirely free. It is recommended that you first install Jim Kitchen's winkit file which includes a self voicing menu for launching his games which can be downloaded here.
Brendan smith, aka Bcs9, and Lauren Downie from the forum have recorded an audio walkthru of several levels of the game which can be Heard here
