Gameplay

The game is a linear platformer which has you going through level jumping, defeating enemies and solving an occasional light puzzle. On top of a classic style of jumping on enemies, Simba also has the ability to roar and cause different affects to foes. When Simba becomes an adult he gains the ability to slash and maul his foes.
