Added DiffLines:

* {{Studiopolis}}: The fourth and final stage is Hollywood. The first act of the stage takes place on [[GangplankGalleon a pirate ship]] where Bart has to dodge pirates and cannonballs. The second act takes place on [[BigBoosHaunt the stage of a horror film]], where Bart has to dodge bats, gargoyles, zombies, spiders, skeletons, and ghosts that resemble Mr. Smithers. The third part takes place on [[MacroZone a giant animator's table]], where Bart has to dodge ink blobs, drafting compasses, pens, erasers, [[ShowWithinAShow The Happy Little Elves]], [[WesternAnimation/TheItchyAndScratchyShow Itchy, Scratchy]], sandbags, and clapper boards. The FinalBoss is Eric Von Burns, a film director who is also one of Mr. Burns' relatives. Bart has to attack Eric Von Burns, who is riding a movie camera, and dodge the megaphones he tosses.

Added DiffLines:

* PieInTheFace: Burns' and Smithers' comeuppance should you collect all the Krusty items.

Added DiffLines:

* ExposedToTheElements: Bart spends the North Pole stage in his usual attire with no protection from the cold.

Added DiffLines:

* BonusBoss: If you collect all the Krusty items, you get to fight Itch and Scratchy.

Added DiffLines:

* LuckBasedMission: The "Find the bat in the coffins" minigame. Just three coffins and you have to pick the right one.

Added DiffLines:

* NonActionBigBad: Burns and Smithers don't actually fight Bart themselves, they just contact Burns' relatives around the world to enlist their help.


* BigfootSasquatchAndYeti: The Abominable Snow Burns is a humanoid monster living in the Arctic.

to:

* BigfootSasquatchAndYeti: The Abominable Snow Burns is a humanoid monster living in the Arctic.North Pole.

Added DiffLines:

* MisplacedWildlife: The Abominable Snow Burns is based on the Abominable Snow Man, which is not from the North Pole but rather the Himalayas.


* SequelDifficultyDrop: While it's still NintendoHard by any standards, the difficulty's a lot more reasonable than it was in ''Bart Vs. the Space Mutants''. This time around Bart gets five hitpoints instead of just two, power-ups are much more plentiful, and the levels (aside from a couple of the latter ones) aren't nearly as absurdly long as they were in that game.


** In the game's storyline, Krusty is bewildered that Bart is chosen as the winner of the contest and seems totally oblivious as to what Burn's plan is, which is consistent with his early portrayal as a grouchy but ultimately kind-hearted clown. Had the game been made later in the decade, odds are Krusty would be shown as willingly helping out Burns in exchange for a suitably large bribe.

Added DiffLines:

* DisproportionateRestitution: Should you collect all the Krusty items, what punishment is Bart allowed to inflict on Burns and Smithers for trying to kill him? He gets to [[PieInTheFace throw pies at them]]. Hardly appropriate punishment for attempted child murder by proxy.


Added DiffLines:

* KarmaHoudini: Burns and Smithers become this if you don't collect all the Krusty items, getting off scot free for their attempted proxy murder of a child.


* BuildLikeAnEgyptian: Egypt includes the obligatory Great Pyramid level.

* DoNotTouchTheFunnelCloud: Beware of hopping mini-tornados.
* FifteenPuzzle: Sliding around pictures of the Simpsons cast, as a MiniGame.
* GenerationXerox: All of Mr Burns evil relatives are his spitting image despite being ridiculously distantly related (third cousin removed, grand uncle, etc.)
* GuideDangIt: Some of the unique Krusty items can be pretty difficult to find, one of these being in the ''first level'', the Chinese Junk, where Maggie is hidden at the bottom of the ship by the rudder, which you'd have no reason to know is even there.
