Overview

Disney's Ariel the Little Mermaid is a BlueSky developed and Sega published side-scrolling action game for Game Gear, Genesis, and Sega Master System, released in 1992.

This game is not to be confused with Disney's The Little Mermaid, which was exclusive to Nintendo systems.

Gameplay

The game largely takes place in the ocean, with Ariel or King Triton swimming across a series of underwater stages. There are two shooting buttons, one is weaker and unlimited, while the other is stronger but has limited ammo. Flounder can be called into assist to push heavy stones out of the way. And Scuttle shop to buy items in change of the currency found in treasure chests.

Game Gear and Genesis feature shorter stages, and with less polyps to save, than genesis version.

Story

Ursula, the evil Witch of the Sea, has cast a spell on all merpeople, turning them into polyps. Ariel has to save them.

Stages

The following stages, and their boss fights, are specific to the Genesis version of the game.

  1. The Reef. Boss: Magmamouth.
  2. Sunken Ships. Boss: Glut the Shark.

Game Gear and Sega Master System has replaced the Glut boss with two smaller sharks. and The Medusa three snakes with one snake.
