Classic Gaming- Aladdin: (1993)

Aladdin Sega Genesis

There many cool 2D  platform games that were released especially during the 80’s and the early part of the 90’s decade.  For the NES and Super Nintendo there where games like Super Mario, MegaMan and Castlevania were very difficult and also fun.  Also, for the Sega Genesis many people know that Sonic the Hedgehog has the best platform game series for that console.  There were also many other exciting platform games such as Aladdin which was a multi-platform game that was released shortly after the movie made its debut in theaters in 1992. When Aladdin was released in theaters in the later part of 1992 many people were blown away by various aspects of the movie itself.

The interesting plot, memorable characters, and great animation is what made Aladdin very exciting for both children and adults.  As great as Aladdin the movie was many people thought the game was almost as good.  When Aladdin the game was released about year later after the movie it was ported to various consoles including the Sega Genesis, Game Boy and Nintendo.  While some people think all ports for Aladdin the video game are fun to play most people would agree that the Sega Genesis version was probably the best.  The musical composition in the Genesis version was great in comparison the Super Nintendo.  Also the Sega version of Aladdin included faster gameplay along with better graphics.

The Game Boy Advance version of Aladdin was also fun to play because the graphics in the game seemed like a refined version of the Super Nintendo version.  Some would argue that the Game Boy Advance port of Aladdin not as great as the Sega Genesis version but it gives players a sense of nostalgia of when it was first released in the early 90’s.  The Amiga version of Aladdin was just as good  as the Sega Genesis in terms graphics while the speed in terms of gameplay can very depending on what type of computer some had and how well it performed.  The Aladdin game had various stages and mini games that not only followed the movie closely but also presented a challenge for players by the time they reached the well known carpet ride level on stage 3.  These were the good old days when the hardest level of many platform games was either stage 2 or 3 because we did not see it coming.  While the movie was a big hit in theaters when it was released in 1992 it would be safe to say that the game exceeded the overall expectations of many people when it was first released in 1993.
