Beauty and the Beast: Roar of the Beast is a 1993 game by Sunsoft for the Sega Mega Drive released exclusively in the United States. It ties into Disney's Beauty and the Beast film.

Unusually Sunsoft simultaneously released two Beauty and the Beast games, this one was aimed at boys, whilst Beauty and the Beast: Belle's Quest was targeted towards girls.

Gameplay

You play as the Beast who must protect the rose that binds his existence from a plague of enchanted woodland creatures who invade his castle. A attacks, B jumps, and C roars (to stun enemies; you have a limited supply of roars).
