Become King Mufasa
Become the king of the prairies. Hunt, kill, survive. Where you live, you are at the top of the food chain
. Or are you? In this animal simulation game
, you get to experience the life of the bloodthirsty beast, the beautiful and mighty lion. You can creep up to your prey in the high grasses, kill it.. And you know the rest. The game is a form of "edutainment", meaning it is both educational and fun, therefore perfect for children. It is faithful in its representation of the behavior of animals and the lion itself, it's overal very realistic and a very good simulation game, while continuing to be fun and exciting. You can really get in character, make youself thinking in lion thoughts
and completely immersing yourself in the game. The visuals are very nice, with a top down point of view, but I must complain about the slowness of the animation. This game is one of the better animal simulations that exist and I recommend it to parents for their kids as it is highly educational, it's extremely fun and very time consuming. And if you are looking for other animal simulations, or if you're more a "king of the forest" rather than "kind of the prairies" person, try Wolf
. It's also great.
