Fans of classic and retro arcade games from the days of Atari should easily remember Frogger, a game which tasked you with helping a frog cross a busy street while avoiding traffic and getting ran over. Crossy Road, a popular game on Android with pixelated graphics and a retro-inspired feel plays a lot like Frogger although it comes with many enhancements. Not too long ago Disney announced that they would be launching their very own version of Crossy Road called simply, Disney Crossy Road, and it has finally launched in the Play Store for anyone who enjoyed the original but wanted to check out this more magical version.
Disney Crossy Road plays pretty much the same as the original game, but instead of the characters you’ll find in Crossy Road, Disney’s version is filled with tons of Disney’s most iconic characters like Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, and more. You’ll also find other characters like Buzz Lightyear and Simba from The Lion King, and in total there are more than one hundred characters you can unlock through playing the game, which gives those who enjoy grabbing achievements something to keep playing for. All the characters included are from Disney and Pixar films, and although Disney now owns Marvel and Star Wars, it doesn’t seem likely that any characters from those franchises will be found within the game.
Aside from the Disney-themed characters, all of the levels will be themed after Disney films and locale as well, so you’ll be playing through areas modeled after iconic places in the different movies, and not only that, but each level will have a background track to match the theme of the level so it kind of feels like you’re in the film. Each world will also hold challenges that were designed especially for that particular level set. Just like the original Crossy Road, Disney Crossy Road is free to install although it does have in-app purchases and is ad supported. If those two things don’t bother you and you are looking for an easy to play and addictive new game to fill your time this weekend, give Disney Crossy Road a shot.
