This week in Your Parents Basement, we’re debating swords vs. non-swords, and essentially committing genocide on the streets of Agrabah! From 1993, we’re playing Aladdin for the SNES and Genesis. It is based on the Disney version, and not the public domain-y 1986 movie.

– According to Price Charting, the prices for Aladdin are pretty manageable. The loose cart for the Genesis is $9.99, with the box and manual combo in new condition going for $52.99. The SNES version is pricier, at a range of $22.50 to $129.99, but re-releases of that version for the Game Boy Color and Game Boy Advance are in the $6.50 to $60 range.
– On the show, we mentioned the illegal ports of the SNES to Genesis, and Genesis to SNES Aladdin games. But there is also a bootleg edition for the NES that mostly imps the SNES gameplay! Someone has a video on YouTube here.
