The Lion King


#sgm0105 - Developed by Westwood Studios, Inc. and Published by Virgin Interactive Entertainment, Inc., "The Lion King" was released for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) in 1994. The game is a 3rd-Person Perspective, side scrolling, action Platformer based on the Disney movie of the same name. Each of the 10 levels of the game are representations of parts of the Lion King movie. The game scenario generally goes along the line of the movie, as you play as everyone's favorite character, Young Simba. The young lion has watched his father rule and longs to be a king in his own right. But when his father King Mufasa is killed, his conniving brother Scar takes over the lion kingdom. And one of his first acts is to ban Simba from the Kingdom. As simba grows from Lion cub to adult, he must master the skills of a Lion fit to rule by possessing a fearsome roar, the ability to pounce and fight with the quickness and strength of the king of the jungle. He will fight different animals like lizards, by jumping on them. He can also roar to scare some to acquiescence and not bother him in the Pridelands. There is both a red life bar and a yellow roar bar. When the yellow bar is full you can roar at some enemies, scare them into flipping over, and then pounce on them. And when he is old enough, Simba will be ready and able to fight his enemies with his sharp claws, and by grabbing them and tossing them off the screen. If you reach that skill level, you are ready for the challenge. Simba will not stop until he defeats his wicked brother Scar and gets his revenge. The gameplay is very fluid, allowing you to control four characters as you fight many different jungle enemies. The game also features the complete movie soundtrack very beautifully replicated, the sound effects stunning and the hand-drawn animation and graphics are simply outstanding. Character sprites perfectly sized and beautifully rendered. All together they make the Lion King game as fun and enjoyable an experience as the movie was. The one drawback I see with this game is that The Lion King for SNES has no save feature, so you will have to start the game from the beginning every time you play. Others might consider this a bonus and challenge rather than a drawback. This game is also alternatively known as "El Rey Leon," "O Rei Leão," "Le Roi Lion" and "Der König der Löwen."
