Super Lion King
|Super Lion King|
Super Lion King is one of those rare instances where a bootleg port of a video game is more accurate than the official port of it.
Compare the early Aladdin graphics with their final counterparts.
An early version of Super Game's logo can be found after the level graphics, with the corresponding tilemap at 0x2A010. It's unknown if the corresponding palette still exists within the game's data, or what "K64" means.

Two versions of this game have been released, the original mapper 114 release, and the more common mapper 4 version. They are nearly identical, except that the mapper 4 version disables the Bug Toss bonus mini-game and stays on the Super Game logo screen for less time. What's left of the Bug Toss mini-game can be accessed by enabling FCEUX cheat 01FB:08 on the title screen and pressing Start. It's mostly intact, however some of the sprites are missing and it will crash after the "Bugs Collected" screen.
