The King Lion III 2003 Advance is a platforming game developed by Sintax and released in 2003 for the Game Boy Color. The game is based on the movie The Lion King, with its gameplay deriving from the tie-in game on the SNES and Sega Genesis.


The game is split into five stages. In each, Simba must traverse the area he's in (which mostly consist of floating platforms with no ground below them) and collect red gem-like objects. There are usually five in each level and collecting them all advances the player to the next stage.

Simba can jump with A and swipe his claws with B. These both can be used to defeat enemies. Simba can also run by holding B while moving and crawl by moving while crouching. Holding down or up will cause the screen to scroll in that direction briefly. To restore health, Simba can find various bugs and fruit in the stages.
