Three classic 90s Disney video games updated and available for the PC

If you were a Disney fan back in the 90s and had the means to play 16-bit video games, then chances are you have come across three Disney games in the form of Aladdin, Lion King and Jungle Book. These titles are classics platforms and timeless in their own right. The technology used to create these games was unparalleled back then, and guess what? They still manage to hold up today.

Yes, today, because recently GOG.com announced that all three games will be available DRM-free via its platform. The company says the games have been “meticulously updated”, but not to worry, graphics, gameplay, and original sound are all intact.

I remember, vividly, playing Lion King on the MS-DOS back in the 90s, and I could believe how they got the characters to look so real when compared to the movie. Many years later and we can see how well the graphics and animation has aged to the point where it can rival modern 16-bit games.

Here’s what GOG.com had to say:

Developed during the golden age of platformers, Disney Aladdin, Disney The Lion King, and Disney The Jungle Book established themselves as hallmarks of the genre, earning the praise of fans and critics alike for over two decades. That was due in no small part to their groundbreaking visuals. With the advent of Digicel technology, hand-drawn cels from Disney’s animation team brought the characters to life with a level of vibrancy that was unparalleled at the time, and remains impressive today. Just look at how adorable little Simba looks when he roars at his enemies!

GOG.com is selling each game for the cool price of $9.99, but if you get them now, the company will slash 10% off the price. Furthermore, if you purchase all three games together, GOG.com will offer a 33% cut in the overall price.

That’s great and all, but we do believe these games should be going for less $9.99. The Disney brand never fails to jack up prices.

There are several platformers available now for the Xbox One. Some are even available via Games with Gold for August. Furthermore, Playdead’s indie game title is now available via the Microsoft console.
