Disney games during the 16-Bit era were some of the best games you could purchase, outside of something with Mario in the title. It was just accepted fact that Disney was quality gaming back then. The games were, mostly, licensed by competent companies that were not scared to put honest to goodness work into making them great games. Now, three of those classics are available, legally, on your computer.
Jungle Book, Aladdin and The Lion King have all been brought over to Good Old Games (GOG.com) with Disney’s blessing. This is awesome news as some of the most neglected games in retrogaming are licensed titles. Now, you may be wondering what is special about these re-releases as there were at least three versions released during the 16-Bit era (Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis and there were often PC versions too).
Well, the versions released on GOG.com are the PC versions of The Lion King, Aladdin and Jungle Book. They are not the Sega Genesis or Super Nintendo versions packaged up in a neat download. Still, the cool thing about this is Aladdin and Jungle Book were VERY closely based on the Sega Genesis (some say the best version) versions. That is great news for those that know what I am talking about. Everyone else, if you are a fan of 2D side scrolling platform titles then get excited because three great ones just became available again. Legally.
GOG.com is running a special that gives you a 10% savings on each title if bought separately. If you are in the mood for grabbing all three, until the 8th of August, GOG.com will combine those discounts and then some for a whopping 33% off the pack of three. That is a great deal. The bundle saves you about $10 over the regular prices.
