Both games feature upscaled graphics with a gameplay of full 1080p display. Not only the fans can rejoice over the news that the game includes great graphics but this spooky season of Halloween they can enjoy their favorite childhood game.

Most of the old gamers can introduce this wonderful game to their children now, given that both these games originally featured in the 90’s.

The launch of the game back in the days really put the first step into establishing a booming future for all animated games. It was enjoyed by the masses and had many different versions played all over the globe by many people.

Since this game is making its way out in the market nearly after 3 decades it has left no stone unturned and really made efforts to make its way back into the hearts of the people where it really belongs.

In addition, Disney Classic Games: Aladdin and the Lion King features:

  • Authentic Game Content with Modern Improvements:
The Fans old and new will be able to enjoy the original game builds, upscaled graphics, customizable controls as well as special filters for visual enhancement.

  • Variety of Game Versions:
The collection includes multiple playable platform versions of the games including their Sega Genesis, Game Boy, and Super Game Boy releases, as well as The Lion King Super Nintendo Entertainment System version (also referred as the SNES version)

  • A Helping Hand:
Players who want to experience the Disney magic in true “Hakuna Matata” fashion can use the Interactive Game Viewer, Rewind feature and cheat codes to aid gameplay progression, this also suggests that they can skip levels and move on further levels of the games. So if you never completed the game in your childhood, now you be able to without having to replay it from the start.

  • Curated, Explorable Museum:
A treasure trove of behind-the-scenes development assets including interviews, an art gallery, and a music player shares the rich history behind the Aladdin and The Lion King 16-bit games. So like if you’re just looking around the features of the game, you can also enjoy all the music tracks of the game itself.

A little spoiler alert if you didn’t watch the live-action movie of Aladdin so beware to read further.

The collection also includes a brand-new “final cut” of Aladdin and an original Aladdin “tradeshow demo” that has not been publicly available since 1993. By this, we have assumed that the game might have some new references for the new remake movie which was a little different than the animated version, but none the less this news isn’t entirely something that affects our decision to suggest to buy this game.

The feature where you can jump off from level to level is something that has really captured the attention of a lot of fans.

The option is referred as “rewind”  which suggests to add feature allowing players to easily backtrack and overcome mistakes, provide an easy access to level skips and invulnerability, and hence including the Interactive Game Viewer featuring entire (and fully watchable) playthroughs of the games so that players can jump in and start playing at whatever spot they want.

These Disney classics have been truly lost in history but their return deserves the utmost attention and love that the original version received when it was released. So head to your nearby stores and get a copy of these games to relive those joyous memories of your childhood.
