its not a great game tbh. the best disney game from that era was aladdin on the snes or world of illusion on the genesis

Is it level 2 that you have to jump from tilting head to tilting head?
Remember that I hated that part.
>> No. 39803969
I couldn't. It took me forever to get to the second half because they decided checkpoints are for pussies

It has great graphics and sound, and the gameplay is decent, it's just difficult as hell.

Ristar was also really good.

Yep. and then the ostrich part. When the double jump part comes, you have to get it exactly right, or it's back to the beginning of the level (tilting heads) for you.

All I remember from that game are the giraffes.

Old games seem really hard in general for some reason. I tend to blame the controller when emulating games on pc. But who knows, maybe I'm just terrible and forgot?

Old games really were harder, since they had their origins in arcades. Arcade games have to strike a careful balance between being fun and eating quarters.
>> No. 39803986
Games have been easier over the years, mostly because it opens for a wider market.
That said, most of Segas and Capcoms Disney-licensed 8- and 16-bits games were great.
This Lionking game was actually made by Westwood.

This. I wish they would have realized by then that the consoles weren't being played in arcades, eating quarters, so the issue of having lives and risking having to start all over again wouldn't have made it so difficult

I remember playing the first Aladdin game. It was amazingly fun as a kid but nowadays...dear god the difficulty.

That was an awesome game, but as you say it was a real challenge for twelve-year-old me.

Remember level 7? Bats, and lava, and bats knocking you into lava. It was evil.

Fuck that game. All I gotta say.


I remember liking...Mickey's Magical Quest? I think I got the name right. Not exactly perfect, but had a lot of neat bits to it.
