Apr 25, 2018

Kidzworld recently shared some of our favorite kids adventure movies, which featured some Disney classics. So we were inspired to also share some of our favorite video games based on Disney characters! 

The oldest game on the list was released in 1989 and the newest came out just in 2015! Does you favorite make the cut? Read on to find out!


Platform: Sega Genesis, Released: 1994

Both the Sega Genesis and Super Nintendo got Aladdin games but they were completely different. Disney's Aladdin on Genesis was made by Virgin Interactive and featured visuals that matched the film perfectly and gameplay as smooth as butter.

World Of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse & Donald Duck

Platform: Sega Genesis, Released: 1992

World Of Illusion took what was great about Castle Of Illusion - solid gameplay, beautiful art - and added two player co-op gameplay. You and a buddy play as Mickey and Donald who have been banished to a magical world by the evil magician Pete. Can you find your way back home?


The Lion King

Platform: Sega Genesis, Super Nintendo Released: 1994

From the development team that brought us the killer Aladdin on Sega Genesis comes another excellent movie tie-in game. The Lion King for the 16-bit generation of consoles boasted awesome graphics with slick animation and even some 3D-like running levels. Not to mention it was and still is a blast to play. Except for that second level where you have to swing from animal tails... curse that level!

Platform: Nintendo Entertainment System (NES), Released: 1989

From Capcom, and running on the same engine as the Mega Man games, DuckTales to this day is one of the better platforming games available to play thanks to precise challenging gameplay and fantastic music that only gets better with age. An HD remake was released in 2013.

Noticing a theme here? The 90's produced some awesome video games to tie in with popular kids shows and movies.

Disney Infinity has grown so much since the first game was released and Disney Infinity 3.0, with the epic inclusion of Star Wars characters, now takes the cake as the best entry in the series.
