The Lion King

Click to Play

Console: Sega Master System

Lush animation and exuberant tunes bring big-budget Disney production values to this Master System adaptation of the Mouse’s leonine take on Hamlet. Battletoads convertor Syrex Developments managed to breathe a lot of life into the 8-bit Lion King, whose young target audience were no doubt challenged by the title’s adult-style difficulty curve.

Players who stuck with it – or roped in an older sibling for the tougher stages – were rewarded with a varied, fast-moving take on the platform genre, whose four-legged protagonists worked every bit as hard for your attention as any animated king of the savanna could reasonably be expected to do.
