Nostalgia really is an amazing thing. It can fill you magic that you haven’t felt for years; it makes you want to be a child again. Somehow I ended up listening to Disney songs the other day and I could still feel the magic that I felt all those years ago. Of course, this being a video games blog and not a movie blog I shouldn’t go on about all my favourite Disney films so I’ll talk about one of my favourite Disney games: Disney’s Hercules: Action Game. To be completely honest though, this wasn’t just one of my favourites Disney games, at the time it was on my favourite games ever!
I loved the Hercules film and I loved the game too. Thinking back upon this magnificent creation it was an extremely varied adventure that managed to capture the film’s magic almost perfectly. There were the normal levels which played as a 2D side-scrolling game with focus on fighting and jumping but there were also “rush levels” in which you had to keep on running forwards and you couldn’t turn back. Along with this the bosses were really fun to fight and were all relatively different.
