Young Simba just can't wait to be king. His father is the current King of the Savannah and the young prince is able to frolic the lands at will; jumping on and around other subjects of this animal kingdom. When Simba's father, King Mufasa, is killed and his evil brother Scar takes over the kingdom, Simba is banished from the lands of his birthright and has to grow up fast, honing his skills, for the day of his return.
The Lion King, based on the famous Disney movie, is a platform game where you control Simba - initially as a young cub, and later as an adult lion. The plot of the game follows the plot of the movie. Each of the levels represents a part of the movie. As young Simba, you can fight various beasts, such as lizards, by jumping on them. You can also roar to scare some creatures into submission, though every time you roar, you have to wait for your "roar meter" to charge. As an adult lion, you can still roar and jump, but now you fight enemies by slashing at them with your claws (if you're skillful enough, you can also grab them and toss them off the screen). The game features no in-game save function, and it needs to be replayed from the beginning every time.
This game was made two years after the release of the well known cartoon that carries the same name. The cartoon was one of the best and most successful Disney's productions, and the game doesn't fall back much.
It features digitized music and speech that we all liked so much back in 1996, and it also features marvelous, colorful and fluid graphics. You play the character of Young Simba. The gameplay is pretty simple and straight forward; you run around the jungle avoiding obstacles and pesky creatures that are up to no good.
As you progress through levels, you grow and the roar ability gets more powerfulas, as well as the paw strike. Every few levels you will encounter a 'boss' that you have to defeat. The only downside to the game that I can think of is that it gets a little monotonous after a while, and once you are dead you have to start all the way from the beginning. That can be pretty frustrating, especially once you get to the harder levels.
To sum it all up, this is a great game for kids that wish to enjoy colourful graphics and have some fun :)
The Lion King: Man I love this movie, and the game is pretty cool too. Well anyone who has seen the movie will know what the lion king is all about, you play as simba the lovable lion cub who happens to be heir to the throne (lion, king of the jungle, all that ;)).
This game is a simple plat-former game; you jump from place to place and jump on anything that moves but an added factor to this game is your roar, you have a roar meter that drains when you roar, your roar can be used for scaring other animals (for example scaring a hedgehog type thing so that it turns upside down and you can jump on it :))
This game is very colourful and defiantly one that will remind you of younger days :). The monkey-puzzles will also make you think ;) the monkeys must be turned around to face the right direction so that when they throw you about, you will land in the right place.
This game also features many action sequences, such as riding an ostrich type thing to timone and pumba bug catching mini-games to a half 3d type chase scene and when you are an adult lion you get to fight other animals (such as hyena's)..
The lion king is very true to the movie and any fans of the game will enjoy it at lot.
Disney's third platform game continues its predecessor's excellence in fluid animations and addictive gameplay. As in the movie, follow Simba's journey from a clueless cub to a graceful King of the jungle. The levels are even more diverse than the previous games; roaring at other animals and avoiding the stampede are but two possibilities in this outstanding game.
