Aladdin is a game based upon the Disney animated classic by the same name. This is a pretty old game and the graphics are very good even though they are strictly two dimensional. The game contains very simple run and gun (slice) gameplay. It is pretty much a simple platform game where you must slice and dice your enemies (or hit them with apples) while avoiding getting hit or falling from the level. The enemies in the game are very repetitious except for the certain bosses.
You see just about all the same guys as you would see in the movie. There is decent variety of bosses based upon different scenes in the movie.
It also contains a bonus level where you must escape a wave of lava on your trusty magic carpet. The plot of the game runs very smoothly in parallel to the movie. There are a few parts where the game takes some side paths from the movie, however this is an added touch to the game.
The sounds and music of the game greatly match what is going on during the game. The sounds are pretty repetitious but the music is very different for each level. However, the music may become very annoying if
you stay on the same level for two long. The most notorious level for this would have to be the Genie's lamp. There are many strange things that you must do in the Genie's lamp and the level (for me at least) took longer than most of the other ones. The music during that particular level is really upbeat and exciting. It doesn't take long for that to get old and annoying.
There is a decent number of Easter eggs hidden throughout the game. You just have to look high and low to find these hidden treasures. However, when found, these Easter eggs help you on your quest to beat Jafar and rescue the princess. Gameplay gets repetitious after a while, but there are always new puzzles to look forward to and a tougher challenge to look ahead to.
When I was younger I absolutely adored this game. I used to play it all the time and loved every single minute of it. After seeing it on this website I can't wait to reacquaint myself with this wonderful classic game. For the time period in which it was created I would have to give this game an 8/10. I have always enjoyed and always will enjoy this game.
