----------PURPOSE OF THIS GUIDE-----------

This guide is a collection of hints and tips for Aladdin on the Sega Master
System. It may work on the Game Gear version too, however, I have not played
through that entire game to make that statement with any certainty. I am sure
that it will do you no good for the Super NES or Genesis Aladdin games, as
they are vastly different from this one as well as from each other.

----------HINTS AND TIPS----------

You start off the game with a rip-roaring chase through the Agrabah
marketplace after Aladdin steals a loaf of bread. You must dodge barrels (both
moving and stationary), an angry guard hot on your heels, and holes (if you
fall down them, you die) until the stage ends. Fairly linear.

Then you meet up with an innocent girl, who has given an apple to a hungry
child completely unaware that this is stealing, and the penalty for stealing
is to lose your hand. I guess they ran out of sprites to show that scene from
the movie, but it's what the dialogue implies. Anyway, you have to get her
away from the market, by leaping across the rooftops until you get to a safe
spot. Also linear.

Despite all that, after a bit of dialogue, Aladdin and the girl end up being
captured anyway, and the girl reveals she is really the Princess Jasmine. She
orders the guards to unhand Aladdin, but they take their orders from Jafar.
There is a scene of Jafar telling Jasmine Aladdin has been beheaded for
kidnapping her, after which you find Aladdin is in fact alive and is being
used by Jafar to get the magic lamp from the Cave of Wonders.

The Cave of Wonders is tricky. There's this one part in particular where you
have to SLIDE under a wall (press the Attack button while you are running).
Enjoy the animation, because as I recall that's the only place in the entire
game that requires you to slide.

After you have the lamp, Abu, Aladdin's monkey, will screw up and grab a huge
jewel. The Cave of Wonders expressly forbid them to touch anything but the
lamp, so it now gets ugly and tries to kill them by flooding itself with lava.
You have to get them out of there on the flying carpet you find.

After this Aladdin meets the Genie after Abu steals the lamp from Jafar in his
old man getup. The Genie takes them out of the cave, and makes Aladdin into a
prince so he can court Princess Jasmine in style.

As Prince Ali Ababwa, you have to make your way through the Sultan's palace.
But it's not easy, because the guards will instantly kill you if they catch
you. You have to throw stones at them as soon as you see them. This will stun
them just long enough for you to get by. There will be some doors you need a
key to open. But they're in fairly obvious places, and it's unlikely you'll
ever run out, since you can only carry one at a time anyway.

One thing you can carry more than one at a time of, though, is stones. You
can carry up to ten (!) stones at one time. What's more, you can get the same
stone more than once. That is, if you think you may be running out, when you
find a stone, just grab it, go down the nearest stairs or walk off the screen,
then come back to find another stone!

Oh, yeah, and there's a tricky part here too. There's one point where there
are two doors one after another, and you've used your last key on the first
door. What you have to do to open the second one is get a guard to walk on
that little bump on the ground. Just stand right next to the wall beneath
the door until the guard charges at you.

After this you'll meet Princess Jasmine and take her on a magic carpet ride.
But this is no free ride; indeed, it's just as bad if not worse than the Cave
of Wonders carpet sequence. You'll need to dodge birds (storks?), a horse, and
rooftops (like the holes in other stages, you'll die if you hit these).

After you drop the Princess off, Jafar's men will throw Aladdin into the
bottom of the nearest deep body of water. There's nothing to do here but watch
the Genie's touching rescue of his friend.

You're at the end game now! Aladdin will confront Jafar, and you'll have to
chase him over a long series of holes and obstacles, including Jafar throwing
lightning at you. Then Jafar will get Aladdin's lamp, and use it to transform
himself into the most powerful sorcerer ever. Of course, this is where you
have to fight Jafar, with a great big scimitar. He'll then turn into a big
snake, which is his final form before he's undone in the ending. I won't spoil
it for you, but if you've seen the movie, you know what to expect. If you
haven't seen the movie, I'm afraid I've spoiled most of that for you. But see
it anyway! Terrific film, lovely animation. It'll probably be on a Platinum
Series DVD any day now, probably after The Lion King.

----------PRO ACTION REPLAY CODE----------

This is a 100% original code created by me, ProTect, using CHASMS' Cheat
Finder feature. It is not taken from any of those sites with lists of Pro
Action Replay that post the same list of codes from the manufacturer or some
code wizard maybe adding one or two of their own codes.

You may feel free to post this code to such a site, but please do give me
credit for it. I had to use an emulator I don't like to get it.

www.gamefaqs.com - GameFAQs

It's sort of pointless to link to this, since if you're reading this FAQ you
should be there. But I know how people like to steal FAQs and post them on
their websites, so if you see this anywhere else, check GameFAQs out. It
didn't have anything on this game until I submitted this guide. ;)

http://freezesms.emuunlim.com - FreezeSMS Webpage

This is the home page of FreezeSMS, a vastly underappreciated Master System
emulator I used to beat this game. IMHO, it's the BEST SMS EMULATOR EVER! Do
get it, please, and be sure to download some of the Game Info Files it offers
for nearly every game on the Master System.

http://asp.disney.go.com/DisneyBooks/RASFirst.asp?page=1&id=2321 - The Aladdin
Online Storybook

Here's Disney's page where you can read the illustrated story of Aladdin, in
case you've never seen the movie or have forgotten it.

http://www.vgmuseum.com/ - The Video Game Museum

This is probably my favorite site for pictures of games. It doesn't have
anything for THIS game except a couple of screenshots, but for other games it
has such things as endings and even pictures of the games' boxes and ads for
certain games. I sent them pictures of this game's ending, but who knows when
those pictures will be posted (they're busy!).

http://www.zophar.net/sms-gg.html - Where you can get the CHASMS emulator at
Zophar's Domain

This is where I was gonna put a link to CHASMS, the only emulator I know of
that lets you hack your own Pro Action Replay codes, but the page seems to be
nonexistent. So instead here's a link to Zophar's Domain's selection of Master
System emulators. If you want to play around with CHASMS' Cheat Finder, click
CHASMS to download it. Otherwise, I would recommend you just get FreezeSMS.
Hell, I recommend FreezeSMS either way. Personally, I use CHASMS only for
making PAR codes. I PLAY my Master System and Game Gear games with FreezeSMS.
I wouldn't even bother with the other emulators on that page. They all
categorically suck.
