The Lion King game follows the movie, with each level being based on part of the movie. You play as Simba in the game, and watch and play as he grows from a cub to a full-grown lion. The game hits all the major points of the movie, and for a Genesis game, captures the movie's look, feel, and did a great job with the gameplay. Most of you know how the movie goes and ends, and if you play Lion King game, I think that you would really like the ending, even though its not much compared to the games nowadays.
You go from fighting hyenas and leaping over porcupines, to riding hippos to getting thrown around by tree-dwelling monkeys, all in the same game. You have a "roar" attack, which as a young Simba, doesn't do much to enemies, and it takes longer for young Simba to regain his voice. But as you mature into a full-grown Simba, you get the full-strength roar, and it scares and intimidates smaller enemies and makes them back off. This feature is used more in the beginning part of the game, than in the latter part. You also have the basic jump and the attack moves, in this case scratching or clawing.
