This large collection of classic action games will give old and young gamers hours of fun with familiar cartoon characters they'll love. Back in the golden days of the NES, Capcom was the reigning king of platformers and Disney was the magic that kids' dreams were made of. When those two teamed up, it was always something special. Now Capcom is taking gamers on a trip down memory lane while bringing that magic to a whole new generation, courtesy of The Disney Afternoon Collection. The six games included here aren't only pixel-perfect ports with a nostalgic flair, but they also represent some of the best gaming from back in the day. The mere fact that these games are just as much fun today as they were more than 20 years ago speaks volumes about the pure joy the Disney Afternoon lineup once offered.

While gamers will likely gravitate more to a couple of their personal favorite retro classics, The Disney Afternoon Collection offers up a little something for everyone. Newcomers and younger gamers who aren't familiar with the difficulty of these old-school games will love having the ability to save their game at any point to continue later. They'll especially love the Rewind feature, while allows them to reverse time on the fly and ensure they don't make the same mistake twice. On the other end of the spectrum, the new Time Attack and Boss Rush modes will give even the most skilled players a run for their money as they try to rank on the online leaderboards. And if that's not enough, the extra content, like the music soundtrack, art collection, and behind-the-scenes peeks at the games' original development reads like a love letter to both Disney fans and classic game fans. While they say that everyone has to grow up sometime, The Disney Afternoon Collection proves that, even though you may grow up, there's always room to be a kid again.
