So, I have compiled all the clocks I have seen in video games based on cartoons so far.
Instead of posting them one after another, here they are, all together in one place
The Simpsons Hit and Run
It’s The Simpsons, but in GTA parody style. But seriously, this is probably one of the best Simpsons games around.
Not a lot to say here. I didn’t spot any other clocks in the game apart from this one in Springfield Elementary. It clear has numbers but it is obscured with a piece of paper that is stuck over it. Not the greatest clock Ive ever stumbled across.
The Simpsons Game
That Simpsons game that itself is a parody of video games. It’s ace, go and play it!
Here are the clocks I found, plus one that doesn’t count, and Ill explain why.
Here we have a nice grandfather clock model, with a pixelated clock face. Hardly surprising no real detail is here, because it acts as a basic background object. Why would anyone take the time to look at it closer?….
Next up is the clock on the wall in the Simpson’s kitchen, as seen on the TV show. Not a lot to say about this one really
Mantle clock, anyone? Again, this clock is there as generic background filler, but, it is quite stylish for a small background object. Digits are missing.
…and finally from The Simpsons Game, a billboard with a PICTURE of a clock. I really wanted this to be included, but, it isn’t actually a clock, it’s a picture of a clock in a game, so, it doesn’t count. Thought it would be interesting to show it anyway.
The Futurama Game
Do you know something? I think this game is criminally under rated. It’s great fun, features everyone’s favourite characters from thew show and has a few different styles of gameplay. As a Futurama fan, I’d love to see more Futurama games, but hey ho.
I found 1 Clock
It’s on the wall in a ruined bar in Old New York. Not a great example of a clock. It’s low poly, it’s not rounded very well and the digits are blurry, BUT, it’s there never the less.
Family Guy – The Video Game
Again, another game which I really enjoyed, but critics didn’t. I felt it was a great adaptation of the show into video game format, with cut aways, great humour and varied gameplay.
1 Clock from inside the police station, where you play as Brain disguised as a lamp.
I’m going to be fair to the developers here. I’ve zoomed in on this one, as it is a small background clock that doesnt need to be detailed. However, we are given each 15 minute interval on the clock, so fair play for tht little attention to detail.
Family Guy – Back to the Multiverse
I love this game. It;s funny, great third person gameplay where you can play as Brian, with standard weapons, or Stewie, with Sci-Fi weapons.
There will be clocks I’ve missed. I spotted one in the ‘Assassinate mayor McCheese’ stage. I’ not going to explain what that is, it’s borderline offensive. Here’s the clock.
Doesn’t get anymore basic than that. Nice rectangular clock with flat cell shaded clock graphics drawn on. Probably not even meant to be noticed.
There you have it, a few clocks from games based on cartoons. I bet there are more. If you find any, comment and they may be included in another edition.
