Disney's The Lion King: Simba's Mighty Adventure is a video game based on The Lion King and The Lion King II: Simba's Pride, released for the PlayStation and Game Boy Color on December 22, 2000. Unlike the previous The Lion King video game, it adhered more closely to the events in the film and the storyline carried on into The Lion King II: Simba's Pride. The bosses Simba faces in this game are Scar and Zira.
The game's gameplay varied between the two consoles.
Due to the PlayStation console's 3D polygon graphics, the gameplay became slightly more varied. Simba's capabilities are identical to the first The Lion King video game in which he can growl, leap, roll and run.
Game Boy Color
The game is mostly a side-scrolling platformer with occasional levels where the camera is top-down. The gameplay is very similar to the first The Lion King video game, in which the player takes control of Simba and must leap and run between platforms while fighting enemies and avoiding pitfalls. During levels Simba can collect pawprint-shaped tokens which add to the overall score.
Graphics and sound
In the PlayStation version, voices, music and sound effects from the film were used. Clips from the film are placed between levels although many of the lines were redubbed by other Lion King related actors, including but not limited to Cam Clarke, Shaun Fleming, Vanessa Marshall, Jim Cummings, and Kevin Schon.
Game Boy Color
In the Game Boy Color version of the game there was only one piece of music used on every level. Some of the animation for both adult Simba and cub Simba was recycled from the previous The Lion King video game.
The PlayStation release of the game generally received good reviews but was criticized for being too short and for repetitive level designs.
