Fatal Labyrinth (Sega Genesis) Review

Not everything needs to be fair. Fatal Labyrinth is a fantasy dungeon crawling game for the Sega Genesis in which the player explores randomly generated dungeons in a top-down layout. Everything is turn based. Nothing on the screen moves unless the player moves. This gives the game a bit more of a table-top Dungeons and Dragons type feel. Players have all the time they need to obsess over the randomly dropped gear before taking the next step into combat.

Green Phoenix - Aladdin (1992) Review


  • A Walt Disney Pictures Production
  • Produced and Directed by Ron Clements & John Musker
  • MPAA Rating: G
  • Running Time: 90 Minutes

BACKGROUND
In 1988, Disney lyricists Howard Ashman and Alan Menken proposed a musical adaptation of The Book of One-Thousand and One Nights. Though initially rejected in favor of an adaptation of a Hans Christian Andersen fable called The Little Mermaid, the two would continue to develop the idea through 1989 and 1990.

Following Ashman’s death in 1991, The Walt Disney Animation Studios found itself riding high off the recent financial and critical successes of The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast and ready to begin production on Ashman’s passion project.
