The Simpsons Wrestling is a licensed wrestling game with bad graphics and mindless button mashing. Its only saving grace is the voice acting.

Hmmm...
To do:
Examine this compendium of audio clips.

Unused Video

DUMMY.STR is the FOX Interactive logo, albeit with a watermark for the shareware version of VideoFramer.

Unused Levels

Hmmm...
To do:
See if there are any other unused oddities relating to this level such as music.

There is a full but unused arena based on Springfield Elementary School. It can be seen by swapping the text krusty.s3d with school.s3d in the BIG.BIN file, which will cause the game to load the school level instead of the Krustylu Studios level.

There is also an arena with a picture of the developers and mascot of Big Ape Productions as Simpsons characters. It can be loaded with the same method as the aforementioned level but with the text bigape.s3d.

Development Text

There are two .txt files with short development notes, titled DUMMY.TXT and DUMMY2.TXT.

File Text
DUMMY.TXT Inserted to mark end of SLUS file.
DUMMY2.TXT To comply with TRC 4.1
