Krusty the Clown's Fun House has been overrun by rats. You must help him to herd the rats into trap machines to clear them out. In order to do so, Krusty must manipulate his environment to set up pathways so that the rats are headed in the right direction. Objects that Krusty move around include blocks, fans, and pipe pieces. The trap machines are operated by other recognizable Simpson's characters: Bart, Homer, Sideshow Mel, and Corporal Punishment.
Krusty's Fun House is a game based on the popular TV series The Simpsons by Matt Groening. Back in the 90s, when the show was at its hype, game developers couldn't help getting their hands on it. In this game, you take the role of Krusty the Clown.
Krusty's Fun House has been infested by pesky rats and it's your job to get rid of them by directing them to the traps operated by Bart, Homer, Sideshow Mel and Corporal Punishment. To do this, you can pickup and drop items (get on top of them and hit the Pickup/Drop key) along the levels in order to control where they go. The rats will only move in one direction and turn around upon hitting something bigger than them.
However, the rats aren't your only worry. In typical platformer fashion, some levels have enemies who's only purpose is to hurt you and get in your way. You can get rid of them by throwing pies at them or using some other weapon you may have picked up along the way. You can get weapons, bonuses or even unlock secret areas by smashing certain blocks along the levels (stand next to them and hit the Fire button).
When you start the game you have a bunch of rooms (levels) that you can get in, just enter the door you want. Some are locked until you finish the previous levels. Some levels may not be locked after you finish them in case you missed something like a secret area, so you can go back and try again. After you finish a set of levels you'll get a code so you can continue from that point on.
After you get rid of all the rats in a level you just have to head back to the door you came from to finish the level. If you wanna restart the level you're in, just hit the Quit button, though that'll cost you a life. Speaking of lives, one of the flaws of the game is that you can't accurately tell how much health you have left. Your only hint is that Krusty will look tired when he's stopped in case his health is low, but even then you can still take some hits. I guess some might consider this a feature to make the game harder.
To round it off the graphics are very nice, simple and cartoony, and the music is also fits the game's style. Not much to say about the sounds, they do their job.
Krusty's Super Funhouse is a short, introductory-level platform game starring Bart's hero Krusty the Clown from The Simpsons cartoons. Vibrant graphics and imaginative level design, unfortunately, aren't enough to relieve the tedium of waiting for something to happen, as the game lacks varied enemies and challenging physical puzzles that characterize earlier games based on the license.
The game begins with a simple premise: help Krusty rid his house of invading rats by goading them into various traps around the house. This level can be considered a "tutorial" of sorts, because the mice are so easy to catch that you will likely get bored. The three remaining levels are progressively more difficult, but none of them will stump joystick experts. In contrast to Konami's earlier Simpsons games that feature a lot of neat, creative weapons from the TV show, Krusty's Super Funhouse is disappointingly limited. There are simply not enough things to do, items to use, and levels to play, to keep anyone's attention for very long. Worth a try for diehard fans of the TV series, but everyone would be better off playing Konami's earlier The Simpsons and The Simpsons: Bart's House of Weirdness instead.
