The Lion King: Simba′s Mighty Adventure is a video game based on Walt Disney Pictures′s animated film The Lion King. The title was published by Activision in 2000, and was released on Game Boy Color and PlayStation. 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, with Simba having to battle his evil uncle Scar, rescue his daughter Kiara (the main protagonist from The Lion King II: Simba's Pride), and finally battle Zira.

This game was the only console-based platform game to involve The Lion King II: Simba's Pride. All other games based on the title were educational or puzzle games and were released on the PC.


The game's gameplay varied between the two consoles.

Game Boy Color

The game is mostly a side-scrolling platform game 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.


Due to the PlayStation console's 3D graphics capabilities 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.

Graphics and sound

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.


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, Jim Cummings, and Kevin Schon.


The PlayStation release of the game generally received good reviews but was criticized for being too short and for repetitive level designs.[1]
