Based on the 1992 animated film, Disney's Aladdin is designed to bring the magic of Walt Disney to your Genesis. As fans of the film will recall, Jafar, the Sultan's evil advisor, has spent years searching for a magic lamp that holds the key to the greatest power in the world — a genie who will grant the lamp's owner three wishes!
Jafar finally locates the precious lamp in the Cave of Wonders and sends a worthless thief named Gazeem in after it. Unfortunately for Jafar, the cave (which has mouth like a tiger) rises in anger and rejects the unworthy Gazeem. The cave then decrees, "Only one who is worthy may enter; one whose rags hide a heart that is pure. A diamond in the rough." This "diamond" is Aladdin, of course, a boy who is tricked by Jafar into retrieving the lamp from the dangerous cave. Once Aladdin finds the lamp, however, he releases the power of the wacky blue genie himself.
This game puts you in control of Aladdin, who has a pet monkey named Abu. It is your mission to outwit Jafar and spoil his nefarious plans. Also, you must rescue Jasmine, a beautiful princess, and win her love in the process. The game begins in the Market Place, where you'll run for your life from angry merchants and other enemies. Next, you'll enter the Cave of Wonders and search for the magical lamp. After escaping from the cave, you must brave the dangers of three more levels: Inside the Genie's Lamp, The Pyramid, and Jafar's Palace.
Like any good street urchin with a heart of gold, Aladdin is extremely agile and can run, duck, jump, swing (from beams), do somersaults, bounce, and climb. He can throw apples (found scattered throughout the various levels) at the enemy knife-throwers, snake charmers, dueling guards, and animated skeletons — or jump on them to put them out of commission. To help him in his mission, Aladdin can also collect different enchanted items he finds along his way. These include hearts, which extend the size of the health meter, and bread and roasted chicken, which refill it. Scooping up 100 emeralds or a magic lamp grants an extra chance to complete the adventure.
After each completed level in Disney's Aladdin, the genie rewards a magical password that will saves progress after the game system is turned off. The game features animation modeled after the film and two hit Disney songs: "Whole New World" and "Friend Like Me." ~ Brett Alan Weiss, All Game Guide
