So very stubbly.
This page is rather stubbly and could use some expansion.
Are you a bad enough dude to rescue this article?

An educational game based on the Disney movie.

Easter Egg

TheLionKing-AdventuresAtPrideRock-EasterEgg1.png TheLionKing-AdventuresAtPrideRock-EasterEgg2.png

A button code can be input during the Sega Pico logo screen, where it's checked against 9 byte values starting at address 00014200. If correct, a third bird will dash through the Sega Pico logo screen, some title screen graphics are flipped upside-down, and a message from lead programmer Thomas Peng is shown after the credits text.

In particular, this code also requires bits 5 and 6 to be set in the I/O address 00800003. It's unknown what input these correspond to, how they are activated in hardware (presumably by default, since they are required to show the credits text), and no emulator supports setting these bits without patching. For example, PicoDrive can be patched to allow setting these bits with key z.

The following table contains the input sequence for this code. It assumes a button named Set bits 5 and 6 is pressed and released at the beginning, but not held down. All remaining buttons must be held down in the correct order.

Key Input Value Code Value
Set bits 5 and 6 60h
Down (60h)+02h 62h
Down+Left (60h)+02h+04h 66h
Down+Left+Up (60h)+02h+04h+01h 67h
Down+Left+Up+Right (60h)+02h+04h+01h+08h 6Fh
Down+Left+Up+Right+Pen Button (60h)+02h+04h+01h+08h+80h EFh
Red Button+Pen Button (60h)+10h+80h F0h
Red Button+Pen Button+Down+Left+Up+Right (60h)+10h+80h+02h+04h+01h+08h FFh
Down+Up (60h)+02h+01h 63h
Pen Button+Left+Right (60h)+80h+04h+08h ECh

Alternatively, the cheat can be activated by applying the following patch (US version):

0001425c = 6018 ; Unconditional branch for cheat enabled
00014650 = 600a ; Unconditional branch for I/O bits 5 and 6
000146a8 = 600a ; Same as 00014650
