The Disney Afternoon Collection is a set of classic cartoon games featuring retro favourites like Duck Tales and Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers.
Centred around the theme of weekend cartoons, The Disney Afternoon Collection is a treasure trove for fans of the old cartridge based games. The games have been mostly lifted straight from the original release, with a few small modifications for modern systems wrapped around an emulator. All five games have new modes centred around boss runs or short arcade modes. While the games are handled with acre and feature local multiplayer, the collection feels a little lacking for a bunch of glorified ROMs. The Disney Afternoon Collection lacks any kind of online capabilities, offering little incentive to purchase over original cartridges or emulations. Despite these issues, it is clear that this release is intended to appeal to those who played the originals as a nostalgia collection rather than to earn new converts.
Style over substance
The Disney Afternoon Collection is a clever package for a handful of old games. An overall lack of new additions and online multiplayer give a feeling of a marketing gimmick rather than an honest update but fans will certainly find lots of retro fun for their money.
