Disney's epic video games

in #gaming4 years ago

To talk about Disney is to look at the past and visualize the childhood of many people since it is one of the oldest companies in terms of cartoons (since 1923). Since video games became important in many people's lives, several developers have been interested in making games on different systems in the Disney world.

The first system that would receive the honor of showing the classic Mickey Mouse was the Game & Watch in 1981, a year later we would see a new game called Mickey & Donald for the Game & Watch Multi-Screen. When Disney was successful, it would gradually become interested in belonging to the world of video games, and this would be the beginning of a huge amount of games.

Sorcerer's Apprentice was Disney's first video game released for a video console, the Atari 2600 in 1983. Due to the great fame of the aforementioned console, it was one of the most played video games, marking the childhood of many gamers of yesteryear.

With the years Disney did not leave aside the world of video games, there are many systems that have received development of games based on animated series or movies from that company, here we can find the NES, Master System, SNES, MegaDrive, PS1, Sega Saturn and many more (including current consoles).

Next, I will show you some classic Disney video games which represented childhood for many players, some of them were simple games to finish, but others would make real gamers because of how difficult and complicated they were.

The Lion King

One of Disney's most famous films, even recently a completely revamped one from that universe was released. The video game The Lion King was released on the Super Nintendo in 1994 and is one of the most remembered games of that console by many, not only for having good graphics, it was for its insane difficulty.

We could play with the main character (Simba) in its two facets, that is to say, from being a puppy to an adult lion, observing at all times through our controller and console the entire history of the classic film through different levels that were characterized by their great difficulty.


Unlike the previous game, Aladdin came out with different versions for two systems in the 90s, one version for Sega MegaDrive and another for Super Nintendo, each one was unique even though they explained the events of the movie, but one video game was aimed at a slightly more mature audience (MegaDrive) while the other was more childish (Super Nintendo).

Regardless of which version you played, they were both amazing, with a respectable difficulty that many probably found difficult to complete, including the Super Nintendo version which challenged you to obtain red crystals that were hidden in different parts of the different worlds.


The first PlayStation 1 and the Nintendo 64 had the honor of showing many gamers this excellent video game from the Disney universe, faithfully showing the events that took place in the movie, but from the perspective of a video game which was fun, simple and very pleasant on a visual level.

The developer Eurocom left aside the 2D graphics and was more inclined to make 3D models, however, it still has the formula of most Disney games of yesteryear, a platform game in which you have to discover different objects hidden in the map, eliminate bosses until you reach the end of the video game.

Toy Story 2: Buzz Lightyear to the Rescue!

From the Toy Story universe many video games have been released on multiple systems, but without a doubt one of the most remembered is Toy Story 2: Buzz Lightyear to the Rescue! Which implemented many 3D scenario mechanics that were once very famous because it was something innovative in video consoles in the mid-90s.

A lot of the gameplay was inspired by Mario 64 style games but gave a bit of originality to the main character which in this case was Buzz Lightyear. Good graphics, scenarios very similar to the one in the movie and an excellent gradual difficulty made it a good game that many gamers of yesteryear will remember.

Kingdom Hearts

A videogame loved by many and hated by others, Kingdom Hearts since its release became a very big surprise for many people since it would masterfully unite the Disney universe with the symbolic characters of the Final Fantasy saga, creating one of the most surprising stories.

What makes this game really interesting is how we go through each of the famous movies in the Disney universe, solving the problem and fighting in an epic way with their respective bosses. If you haven't had the chance to play this game and you like everything about Disney, it's time to take a look.

Obviously there are many Disney games missing from this list, but I'll leave this mission to you to tell me what your favorite games in this universe were. Each of these releases filled us with many hours of fun in the past and if by any chance you haven't played any of them it's time for you to prove how great they are.
