The Simpsons: Bart vs. The Space Mutants is a platformer game by  Acclaim Entertainment based on the TV series The Simpsons. It was released in North America and Europe in 1991 and in South America on 1993.


Space mutants are invading Springfield and it's up to Bart to save the day. Their superweapon initially requires "purple things", so Bart has to hide or re-paint everything that is purple. When he succeeds, the mutants change their plans to just "hats", so Bart has to collect every hat in Springfield.
