The Simple game series is a series of games that are all published by D3 Publisher and are meant to be budget priced. D3 used various developers for the games instead of one single developer. Generally the price of the game was in line with what was stated on the cover, as an example the Simple 1500 series of games were released close to a 1500 Yen price tag.
The games in the original 1500 series started out as plain or generic versions of games, and were even named simple as well, such Simple 1500 Series: The Tennis.
