Home Alone 2: Lost in New York is a video game based loosely on the 1992 film of the same name; it was released on the NES, Sega Genesis, Game Boy, MS-DOS and Super NES systems.

Development[edit]

The Nintendo versions of the game were released in late 1992 for all three Nintendo's consoles at the time. The Nintendo consoles are virtually the same game, with minor differences in each version. The Game Boy version is virtually identical to the NES version. The MS-DOS version was released in 1992. The Sega Genesis version was released a year later in 1993.[citation needed]

Reception[edit]

The game was released to a poor reception.

Home Alone 2: Lost in New York was awarded Worst Sequel of 1992 by Electronic Gaming Monthly. They also awarded it Worst Movie-to-Game of 1996.[1]
