GOGcom drops a Disney 16bit nostalgia bomb with Aladdin Jungle Book

first_imgGOG.com has just surprised the world by unleashing PC ports of the some of the finest 16-bit platforming games ever made- Disney Aladdin, Disney The Lion King, and Disney The Jungle Book.Now the 16-bit generation was a lousy time for film adaptations. Most tie-ins were cheaply made and rushed through production to capitalize on the film’s release date and unsuspecting youngsters, but Disney did not mess around with its properties then. They utilized Digicel technology to take hand-drawn cels from Disney’s animation team that made it look for the first time like you were actually playing a cartoon. Just check out the trailer and realize that this is not remastered or upgraded, this is how good the games looked on Super Nintendo and Genesis twenty years ago.All three games have been updated to be compatible with modern operating systems (Windows, Mac, and Linux) and preserve every aspect of graphics, sound, and gameplay. Purists will be glad to note that this Aladdin is the Genesis version, not the different (and arguably inferior) SNES version, which was developed by Capcom. The Genesis Aladdin was also notable for having an all-star cast of developers, including many who went on to create the beloved Earthworm Jim.The Disney titles can be purchased for $9.99 each, or all three for a flat $20.This is only the latest round of Disney Interactive titles released DRM-free on GOG.com. They have re-released over a dozen titles at this point, including many previously unreleased on digital titles like Star Wars: X-Wing and TIE Fighter, as well as the iconic Sam & Max Hit the Road. Check out GOG.com to get your nostalgia on.last_img
