Become Aladdin and explore the gem filled cave to retrieve your magic lamp. Be careful, because as you explore your living room transformed into Aladdin's magical world you must avoid the trees until you possess the all powerful magic lamp. Touch too many trees and the spell is broken and the cave dissolves away. Once you hold the lamp you can then gather as many gems and treasure as your pockets will carry!
