Hey, I'd like to get everyones opinion on which Data East game is a better buy. I've got both a Simpsons and TMNT up for sale near me. Both around the same price. I grew up in the 90's so am a huge fan of both themes. But I've only got $ for one. Which one do I get? I realize that neither game is very deep when I comes to rules. I have 2 young kids who love pinball. What's the better buy?

TMNT was the first game I ever owned, and it took me maybe a day or two to realize it was a mistake. I sold it after about 2 months.

The Simpsons - Love the artwork, but a few dollars at the arcade was about all it took for me to decide it wasn't for me.

The flipside? If the price is right, buy it, and if you don't like it, sell it. I think both are about equal as far as gameplay is concerned.

Thanks BJD. The Simpsons has mods it looks like. Seems pretty nice. I'm leaning that way. I like the Apu kickback. Decision pending.

I personally like the Simpsons, but be careful this game is very hard to find in decent shape!

Simpsons is better gameplay-wise, but tmnt had a certain charm. The callouts and turtle power theme are great. The spinny pizza disk and sewer kickout... Meh.

I've owned both. Wanted TMNT to be great, since I own both turtles arcades. But, the turtles pinball is pretty terrible.

Simpsons is slightly better.

Depends its all about state,
ive played both,
a good tmnt is more fun then a crappy state simpsons
but if in good state id buy simpsons

i got a great state tmnt pure mindless fun

to be honest id buy neither but rather another pin

Good luck
testplay is the word
