Review:
While this same game on Game Boy was just okay, Simba's Mighty Adventure on a bigger screen was great fun for the whole family. The graphics are clear and look just like the movie, and the game was challenging without being frustrating. A young Simba makes his way to the top of Pride Rock and then ventures through the various levels, including an elephant graveyard and the jungle. By the fourth level, he becomes a mature lion and his little roar becomes a big one. Granted, a true pro might think zooming through this for a couple of hours is not worth the money, but all three of my testers - ages 5, 8 and 14 - and I declared this game a winner.
