    The picture of the Aladdin SNES cartridge had me worried they'd ported the Capcom version. Luckily it looks like the Megadrive version in video which was a far better game with much better animation. Sadly though it also looks like they used the texture files from the Megadrive version of Lion King which weren't as nice as the SNES ones.

    I expect it's a Megadrive emulator running the ROM, all packaged up into a single executable.

    I hope it has CRT emulation options.

    I remember renting (yes, that was a thing) Aladdin for the SNES in my youth. It was a frustrating, relatively dull game at the time, especially compared with the high-quality games put out by other companies.

    It's nice that they're giving the option to people who want to experience these legally on a PC (outside of the legally-grey area of ROM emulation), but of all the games people get nostalgic for, I don't believe I've ever heard anyone reminisce fondly of Disney games of the era.

    To each their own, anyway
