For an early 90s NES game set in a sewer, there's a distinct lack of giant frogs, pizza and swearing at the TV because turtles should be able to swim in the water, goddammit!

The Simpsons: Bartman Meets Radioactive Man is a platform video game published by Acclaim in 1992 for the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) and Sega Game Gear. Developed by Imagineering, the side-scrolling game features Bart Simpson on a comic book quest to rescue his kidnapped idol, superhero Radioactive Man. Bartman Meets Radioactive Man received mixed to negative reviews from critics, with criticism being directed at the gameplay control.
At the beginning of Bartman Meets Radioactive Man, Bart Simpson is at home reading a Radioactive Man comic book only to be shocked as Radioactive Man's sidekick, Fallout Boy, jumps out of it. Fallout Boy tells Bart that he must venture into the comic book universe in order to save Radioactive Man, who is being held captive at the black hole-orbiting prison Limbo Zone. Once inside the comic book world, Bart transforms into his superhero alter ego Bartman and has to defeat three super villains that have stolen Radioactive Man's powers: Swamp Hag, Dr. Crab, and Lava Man. After collecting these powers, Bartman must find Radioactive Man and team up with him to defeat Brain-O the Magnificent, the mastermind behind the evil plot.
The game was developed by Imagineering and published by Acclaim. It was released in 1992 for the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) and the hand-held Sega Game Gear. At the time when the game was released, the "Bartman" alter ego was popular in merchandise relating to The Simpsons, although the character rarely appeared in the television series. Radioactive Man had not been featured much either at that point. In regards to this, an 1UP.com editor commented that "when it comes to mining the show for content, Bartman Meets Radioactive Man is really reaching."
Bartman Meets Radioactive Man received mixed to negative reviews from critics. In February 1994, the GamePro magazine gave it a 2.5/5 rating, commenting that "Though it's not a toxic waste of time, Bartman meets Radioactive Man is an average game with handicaps that affect its playability and your enjoyment. Only you can determine if it's a meltdown or not." Similarly, UGO Networks wrote that "As Bartman, Bart's got some superpowers and battles comic book villains in this amazingly average side-scroller. Like a lot of the Simpsons games, there's nothing to really make it shine or distinguish itself from any other game on the racks." Game Players gave the game a 44/100 rating with the rationale that "it's full of frustrating jumps, and there are no passwords [for saving]." The website MobyGames commented that "most of the level sequences require precise timing and pixel-perfect jumping precision." In addition, the authors of the book Video Game Bible: 1985-2002 wrote that "simply put, the poor control of this game ruins what should have been a very entertaining title. Side scrolling levels featuring some nice colors and detail are showcased in this otherwise disappointing title."
