Summary

Terrific!

The Good

Although I dislike Disney's ridiculous tendency to merchandize _everything_, I must say that this game is as fun and professional as they get. Aladdin surprised me with terrific music conversions (uses MODs, so it's one of those few games that can be said that their music is as good as the Amiga version's) and great in-level music and graphics, a generally smooth control system and fairly clever level design.

Most importantly, the game doesn't capitalize on the Aladdin license in a way that will make you sick, but is rather a fairly pleasant platform game that is very fun to play.

The Bad

The game is quite repetitive, but changes often enough to keep the interest up. I guess the only bad thing about this game is the fact that it exists, another goal acheived in Disney's quest for world domination through merchandizing.

The Bottom Line

A professionally done game that's fun to play.
