|The storylines from 1994's The Lion King and the 1998 direct-to-video sequel The Lion King II: Simba's Pride are the subject of this handheld game, which stars Simba as he matures from a precocious cub to an adult lion in a side-scrolling adventure spanning ten levels. The game begins near Pride Rock as Simba practices his pouncing technique on the toucan Zazu. The action continues through the Water Hole, Elephant Graveyard, and Wildebeest Stampede until an older Simba finds Nala. The battle with Scar concludes the first six levels of the game. |
The final four levels mirror the action found in the sequel. As King of the Pride Lands, Simba must rescue his daughter Kiara from a crocodile-infested swamp, run through the dangerous Plains of Fire, survive an ambush of lionesses at the Outlands, and confront the evil Zira to reclaim his birthright as the Lion King. In addition to the main story, Simba's Mighty Adventure includes four bonus games starring Timon and Pumbaa: Bug Drop, Catch the Worms, Bug Tennis, and Beetle Hunt.
A fifth game, Tag, is a two-player contest between Simba and Nala in which players attempt to capture a star and hold it for two minutes without being touched. A Game Link cable is required to play this mini-game as well as two Game Boy Colors and two separate cartridges. Simba's Mighty Adventure offers three difficulty levels, which determine the number of lives a player begins with and the amount of damage received by enemies. Progress during the game can be resumed via passwords provided at the end of each stage.
