  • Summary: Based on the classic game for the SNES and Disney's animated film, Disney's Aladdin joins the Game Boy Advance library with all-new features. In this side-scrolling platform game, you'll take the role of Aladdin and his mischievous monkey, Abu, as they throw apples, climb ropes, and ride magic carpets to find out their destinies. Disney's Aladdin features a bonus stage for each level and a variety of environments to explore, including Jafar's castle, the Genie's lamp, and an ancient pyramid. Collapse

  1. The playcontrol is spot-on and still feels like a descendant of the original "Prince of Persia." The fluid character animation is some of the best around. [Oct 2003, p.144]
  2. The same as it was ten years ago. Capcom did make a few improvements like added a much needed save feature instead of a password system to the game to make it more portable. There are also Game Boy Advance exclusive levels, which add some value to the game. [JPN Import]

    Aladdin is just as solid now as it was then; jumping is still precise, the visual package is bright, colorful and well-animated, and the game's score and sound effects are all dead on.

    But even with the improvements, there's not much going on in Aladdin that hasn't been done before, or better for that matter. It's just a routine game that's best enjoyed by fans of the cartoon.
  5. To be blunt, if you played this game to death on the Super Nintendo, there really is no convincing reason to revisit it on the GBA. The bonus levels don't give it enough of a rationale to verify a purchase. With no multiplayer and literally no replay value, you'll be done with this game within a day if you try.
  6. This seems like a straight-up port with not much thrown in to make it worth buying all over again.
  7. 40
    It's good for kids and fans of the movie. It's just run aground with age in terms of its gameplay, its presentation, and its length.

    Classic game. Captured the spirit of the Disney movie brilliantly. Also was challenging and fun. Not just a kids game. Great for any age!
