Gameplay[edit]

The player assumes control of three total characters in the game: Aladdin, Abu, and Princess Jasmine. Aladdin's abilities range from sword fighting to jumping to stomping. Abu can jump, roll, and climb on walls to a certain degree. Jasmine's character is hiding in a pot for her level therefore the player can hide and hop.

The player collects gold coins throughout each level and fights a variety of villains. The game's environments also vary and allow much interaction. There are minigames at the end of each level: pie throwing, surfing, skate-boarding, and cloud jumping.

Plot[edit]

Disney's Aladdin in Nasira's Revenge is set after the events of The Return of Jafar and before the television series and Aladdin and the King of Thieves. The legendary city of Agrabah is in peril again, this time threatened by the evil sorceress Nasira (Jodi Benson).

The witch Nasira begins her plot by taking over the palace with a spell and kidnapping Princess Jasmine (Linda Larkin) and the Sultan. She then commands the guard's captain Razoul (Jim Cummings) to bring Aladdin (Scott Weinger) to her. Nasira believes that if she collects a set of ancient relics that are spread all over Agrabah she might be able to revive her brother Jafar (Jonathan Freeman) and take over the world, and so she uses her captives to force Aladdin into doing this job for her. The game ending with Nasira resurrecting Jafar in her volcano lair, but Aladdin manages smash the artifacts and destroy him again while the Nasira herself flees and apparently survives.
