The Lion King: Activity Center is a PC game released in September, 1995.
Activity center game based on Disney's 1994 film The Lion King. Play simple mini-games and put together simple puzzles, practice spelling or watch clips with popular songs from the movie and sing along.
- Beginning Menu: Zazu serves as the guide here. He tells the player to either select his or her name if he or she has played it before, or if not, to type it in. He also has him or her select his or her type of difficulty level (a lion cub for "Easy," an adolescent one for "Medium," or an adult with a mane for "Hard." It can be changed at any time in any game.
- Main Menu: Simba serves a guide. This part takes place on the peak of Pride Rock. When he introduces the Shadowlands, he brags that he is brave. Apart from that, at least at first, none of the locations' guides are ever shown as such.
- Jungle - Timon and Pumbaa are the unseen hosts of this location.
- Matching Game - concerning the bugs, that is. If the player finds two bugs that look the same, Timon will take them away. Then once the player has done ten matches, he or she will get a matching-bug-catcher certificate that he or she can either print out or have a grownup helper (like a parent or guardian) do so. The player's name appears, and then the date varies, depending on when he or she plays the game.
- Find the Friends - The player has to help Pumbaa look for obscure drawings of certain animals. After every seven friends found, the location changes.
- Spelling - The player has to spell a certain selected word, and Pumbaa will fall into a mud hole; the minimum amount of letters required to spell a word will be three while the maximum amount of letters required to spell a word will be eight.
- Rafiki's Tree - There is no question who is the unseen host of this location.
- Puzzles - Those are screenshots from the movie.
- Coloring pages - The coloring pages' outlines match those in the movie. The player can either do his or her own coloring, or use some kind of brush to make it look exactly like it is in the movie. Also possible is connect-the-dots.
- Achi - He says it's like tic-tac-toe, but with a twist, also a little like checkers. The player can either play against Rafiki or a real-life friend.
- Outlands - Simba and Nala act as unseen hosts to the player.
- Xylo-bone: You can either play your own tunes, or like in a certain "Repeat the Pattern" game, try and repeat the pattern Ed plays (so as to keep him from eating Zazu).
- Memory Match: Using stone cards, the player can either play alone, with a real-life friend, Simba, Nala, or Ed (Simba mentioning himself as the opponent was the second mention as such, as Nala tells him she already told the player so). The cards are the only sighting of Nala in this game. Other than the solo method, if either player manages to make a match, he or she gets to go again until he or she finds two stone cards that don't match, in which case it is the other player's turn.
- Maze game: Help Simba get through the maze before the hyenas get him (When Nala introduces this game, Simba denies needing any help, which Nala contradicts). Additionally, setting the game to the "Easy" level turns the hyenas off. Besides that, another possible option is that the player (or a grownup helper) can print out a picture of the maze, and then he or she can use a pencil or crayon to mark the way from one side of the maze to the other.
- Magic Pool - (Just clips from the movie, only rippled to show that it is on water). Like at his tree, Rafiki is the unseen host.
Aside from locations:
- An icon of Zazu is how to have Zazu explain the rules.
- A magnifying glass icon is a way of asking for a clue in a certain game, whether where the player is to move either of his or her pebbles in Achi, which two stone cards will match when flipped over, or which two bugs will match for Timon to eat, to name a few.
- An icon of either of the following depends on where the game takes place, and clicking there will return the player to that location menu:
- An elephant skull represents the Shadowlands.
- A forest-covered mountain represents the Jungle.
- A tree represents Rafiki's tree.
- A picture of the lion figure changes the level to either level of difficulty (as mentioned above).
- An icon of Pride Rock returns the player to the main menu.
- An icon of Simba waving his front paw means that the player is quitting, but first, Simba will see if he or she is really ready to leave. If he or she clicks "Yes," after the closing words, Simba adds that the Pridelands are fun with him or her around; if he or she clicks, "No," he or she continues to play.
- All of the original cast reprises their roles except Nathan Lane as Timon, Jonathan Taylor Thomas as Simba, and Rowan Atkinson as Zazu (aside from clips). Instead, they are voiced by Quinton Flynn, Ryan O'Donohue (later voicing Young Kovu in the second movie), and Jim Piddock, respectively.
- Contrary to this game, in the movie, Simba hadn't encountered Rafiki except during his infancy.
