Making A Scene
Key locations from disney’s movie that became levels in Virgin’s game
The market is where the film introduces Aladdin and Princess Jasmine. The game’s first level riffs on this with elements like a bed of hot coals that Aladdin can trick guards into burning their feet on and its use of apples as a weapon.
Aladdin first encounters his nemesis Jaffar in the Sultan’s dungeon, but Virgin produced an entire level based around this brief scene’s backgrounds combined with creations unique to the game such as reanimated skeletons.
CAVE Of Wonders
The genie’s lamp and a magic carpet are hidden inside the movie’s Cave Of Wonders, the latter of which Aladdin uses to fly over a sea of lava. Virgin’s game has three distinct levels inspired by the iconic cave setpiece.

Arguably the movie’s most memorable scene is the Genie’s bombastic introduction. Virgin adapted this into a suitably strange level where Aladdin has to negotiate morphing Genie hands and floating Genie-head balloons.
The movie’s finale takes place in Jafar’s palace with Aladdin facing the villain’s magic powers. In keeping with the film, Virgin’s game also ends with their battle, in which Aladdin has to throw numerous apples at his opponent.
