Just like The American Girls Premiere, The Simpsons Cartoon Studio allows you to make your own cartoons from scratch on your computer. And like the other program, a huge number of sound and animation clips of many different characters are included to spark your ideas and get you started.
Of course, the making of a cartoon is difficult and time consuming, and the simple cartoon tutorial takes up an amazing 45 different steps. In fact, if you try to make a cartoon longer than about 45 seconds to a minute, the program will run out of memory, and you will have to save, quit the program and add more memory. There is a brain indicator you must watch as you make your cartoon. The more the brain is filled up, the closer you are to running out of memory. Additionally, the cartoon may play in a slow and jerky fashion the first time you play it. It is usually smoother on the second run-through.
The Simpsons cartoons that play on TV may seem easy to produce, and perhaps it is much easier than trying to recreate the process on the computer. Of course, on the computer, you don't have to hand-draw all those cels to make the picture look good. Then again, the process is so complicated that many kids may simply throw up their hands in disgust before they complete even one simple cartoon.
If you purchase this game for your child, make sure they have a high frustration threshold or it may stay on the shelf more than it gets played.
Graphics: About the level of the TV show, and occasionally a bit rougher.
Sound: Easily recognized as belonging to certain characters from the show.
Enjoyment: Can be more frustrating than enjoyable, especially for younger players.
Replay Value: Once they learn the process, kids can make a lot of cartoons of their own.
The Simpsons Cartoon Studio allows you to use a large library of premade clips, sounds, backgrounds, and effects to make your own Simpson's cartoon shorts. Also includes a program that allows you to swap cartoons with your friends.
