Aladdin II

From Sega Retro

Aladdin 2001

Cool Gamer reports that there is another game called Aladdin 2001. I don't know if this is a new game, some hack of an existing game or a SNES bootleg (rather not because the book is about games for Mega Drive). This game got a 5/10 rating.-Lukdriver14 (talk) 06:30, 16 May 2021 (EDT)

Here is a ROM but I don't see the difference between standard Aladdin. Maybe it's a prototype? -Lukdriver14 (talk) 12:36, 16 May 2021 (EDT)
Looks like an unofficial Russian translation, so it would be a review of a ROM hack. If it wasn't released commercially in any form, it's outside the scope of Sega Retro, but if it was sold as a bootleg... I genuinely don't know how to deal with reviews. I suppose reviews of bootlegs could be worth mentioning if the release was widespread, but we'd want to group it differently... somehow. -Black Squirrel (talk) 14:09, 16 May 2021 (EDT)
It was sold but it is very rare. Cool Gamer also has a sales rating, and they give this game 2/10 so maybe it's because of that. Judging by the descriptions, this game is a bit different from the usual game or maybe they just wanted to present it like that. I was able to translate this:
Challenge yourself, set off with Aladdin on a new dangerous and exciting adventure. In this game, we again meet with our old friend Aladdin and go with him on an exciting adventure. TIPS 1. Use Aladdin's ability to glide after jumping, which has appeared in this game. This way you can travel long distances through the air. 2. A very useful technique against enemies is to throw a magic sphere while jumping. Cool Gamer #9
In this game, we again meet with our old friend Aladdin and go with him on a adventure. This time, he slightly changed his arsenal - now he has at his disposal magic spheres with which he can hit enemies, and in addition, with the help of his friend the genie, Aladdin can now plan for some time after the jump. It helps a lot, especially when jumping long distances. Along with the changed arsenal, Aladdin himself has somewhat improved his physical form since our last meeting. Now he can, jumping on opponents, carry out a cunning throw and thus neutralize them. Don't think this journey with Aladdin will be easy !!! You have to visit with him on the city roofs and dungeons, climb high towers and fight with a huge number of enemies. there will be already familiar guards and new characters - statues, throwing discs, biting scorpions, bats and other "dear audience". Test yourself, go with Aladdin on a new dangerous and exciting adventure. Sega 14000 Opisaniy i sekretov
Judge for yourself whether it deserves a separate page or some other reference to the existing ones.-Lukdriver14 (talk) 15:24, 16 May 2021 (EDT)
