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 Nintendo Entertainment System, Genesis, Game Boy, MS-DOS and Super NES platforms. The game was in memory of Tom Heidt.


The game was released in late 1992 for all three Nintendo's consoles available at the time. Mechanically, the three versions are identical, with the Game Boy version being virtually identical to the NES version aside from the monochrome graphics, lowered resolution, minor gameplay and map differences. The MS-DOS version was released in 1992. The Genesis version was released a year later in 1993.[citation needed]

In June 2016, video game developer Frank Cifaldi found the NES version's source code on an old hard drive and released it to the public. He has stated the game's code was based on The Simpsons-licensed titles on the NES, also by Imagineering.[1][2]


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.[3]
