The player controls Aladdin, who must make his way through several levels based on locations from the movie: from the streets and rooftops of Agrabah, the Cave of Wonders and the Sultan’s dungeon to the final confrontation in Grand Vizier Jafar’s palace.
The Sultan’s guards and also animals of the desert want to hinder Aladdin in his way. He can attack with a limited supply of apples. Next to apples, Aladdin can also collect gems which can be traded for lives and continues from a traveling peddler. Finding Genie or Abu icons enables bonus rounds. The Genie bonus round is a game of luck played for apples, gems or extra lives, and continues until the player runs out of Genie tokens or lands on Jafar. In Abu’s bonus round, the player controls the little monkey who has to catch bonus items that fall from the sky, but without touching any of the unwanted objects like rocks and pots.

– Since you have no sword, you’ll have to kill enemies a different way. You
can throw an apple to stun the larger enemies, like guards and archers, and
then while they’re stunned, you can jump on them to kill them. Or, you can just
jump on them without throwing an apple, but it’s a lot riskier. Smaller
enemies, like bats and scorpions, can be killed by just an apple. No jump is
– Throughout the game, you will be jumping and swinging from things. In fact,
you’ll be doing this A LOT. You can grab poles sticking out horizontally in the
Agrabah levels, to swing from them. While swinging, you can jump at the peak of
Aladdin’s swing, to jump higher and farther. While jumping from things like
vertical poles and enemies, you can press the Jump button as soon as you hit
the top of them to jump higher and farther. Also, getting a running start
before jumping onto something, helps a lot. This may sound confusing, but you
should be able to get a feel for the game pretty soon.
– Jumping from platform to platform is a bit more complicated. If you try to
jump to a platform, without getting a running start, you won’t jump very far.
This can get very frustrating later on. So my best suggestion is to just get a
running start as often as you can.
Here are the items. In order of how often you’ll see them:
Apples are your best friend in this game. Use them to kill or stun enemies.
Usually, you’ll find apples in vases, in groups of 3. Each apple is worth 10
Collect 100 of them to gain an extra life. And you want extra lives…
TURKEY and BREAD:
Food like the turkey and bread, give you health. Turkey recovers 2 hearts, and
bread recovers 1 heart. You have 8 hearts total.
Scarabs let you play the lottery at the end of each level. Find them, and
While they aren’t a collectable item, vases hold items. Simply jump on them to
knock them over, and collect their insides. You’ll usually find apples, bread,
turkey, or a scarab.
These bad boys give you an extra life. They are basically just the words, 1UP.
You can’t mistake them for anything else.
To be perfectly honest with you, I still have yet to find a purpose for these
things. All I know, is that when you get one, they appear next to your apples
in the top right corner.
That’s all the items you need to care about.
