GOG Brings Disney's Sega Genesis Platformers to PC

Some of the best Disney games are available on PC, Mac, and Linux.

GOG and Disney have announced that three 16-bit classics are returning today. The Sega Genesis adaptations of Aladdin, The Lion King, and The Jungle Book are available for Windows, Mac, and Linux at GOG.com. Each title will retail $9.99, but they're all currently 10 percent off individually or 33 percent off in a bundle.

"All three titles have been meticulously updated to be compatible with modern operating systems while preserving the original graphics, sound, and gameplay," said GOG on its official blog.

"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."

Now fans can see if their memories stack up to the reality. We've already had HD remasters of DuckTales and Castle of Illusion. All we're really missing is a bunch of the NES and Super Nintendo titles, like Rescue Rangers or Magical Quest. Ah, Magical Quest.
