The Lion King rom

The Lion King ROM is available to play for Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES). This game is the US English version and can be played using the BSNES or HIGAN (SNES) Emulator on Windows, Mac, Linux, Android and IOS devices.


The Lion King is a platform game based on Disney’s 1994 animated film The Lion King. The game was developed by Westwood Studios and published by Virgin Interactive Entertainment for the Super NES and Genesis in 1994, and was ported to MS-DOS, Amiga, Game Gear, Master System, and Nintendo Entertainment System. The Amiga, Master System, and NES versions were only released in the PAL region. It is the final licensed NES game worldwide. The game follows Simba’s journey from a young cub to the battle with his uncle Scar as an adult.

Additional Information

The Lion King is a side-scrolling platform game in which players control the protagonist, Simba, through the events of the film, going through both child and adult forms as the game progresses. In the first half of the game, players control Simba as a cub, who primarily defeats enemies by jumping on them. Simba’ roar consumes a replenishable meter, and can be used to stun enemies or solve puzzles. In the second half of the game, Simba becomes an adult and gains access to various combat moves such as scratching, mauling, and throws. Simba starts the game with a certain number of lives, depending on the difficulty setting; if he runs out of health or encounters an instant-death obstacle, such as a bottomless pit or a rolling boulder, he loses a life. Losing all lives results in a game over.

The player can collect various types of bugs. Some bugs restore Simba’s health and roar meters, other more rare bugs can increase these meters for the remainder of the game, and black spiders reduce Simba’s health. By finding certain bugs hidden in certain levels, the player enters bonus levels as Timon and Pumbaa to earn extra lives and continues. In Pumbaa’s stages, he collects falling bugs and items until either one hits the bottom of the screen or he eats a bad bug, and in Timon’s stages, he hunts for bugs within a time limit while avoiding spiders.
