Disney is bringing back the magic of its retro platformers.

GOG.com announced on Thursday, Aug. 4, that it is exclusively selling classic Disney 16-bit platformers that were insanely popular with gamers back in the '90s.

Originally released for 16-bit consoles like Sega Genesis and Super NES between 1993 and 1994, GOG.com and Disney teamed up to re-release Aladdin, The Lion King and The Jungle Book.

This means gamers can get all nostalgic about how they survived the Cave of Wonders while throwing apples and swinging a sword as Aladdin, and went bananas for being able to defeat Shere Khan as Mowgli jumped throughout the jungle in their childhood.

Those who have played the games know just how groundbreaking the graphics were at the time, making them iconic titles during what is now known as the golden age of platformers.

It also allows a whole new generation of gamers to experience just how awesome these iconic games really were.

Don't worry if you are concerned about whether or not the games will feel too awkward to play on modern computers. GOG is not re-releasing remastered versions of the original games. Instead, the three games have all gotten a facelift to be worthy of playing on PCs and Macs, while still remaining true to their classic feel.

"All three titles have been meticulously updated to be compatible with modern operating systems while preserving the original graphics, sound and gameplay," GOG.com's press release reads.

It's important to note that the visuals haven't changed, with all three classic games still featuring Disney's hand-drawn cel animation and 16-bit artwork. However, the games trade in the 4:3 ratio display to better fit widescreen views gamers are used to today.

The retailer for video games and films is selling the 16-bit Aladdin, The Lion King and The Jungle Book platformers for $9.99 each or as part of a bundle for $19.99 until Aug. 8. The games are available for Linux, Mac and Windows.

GOG.com has previously teamed up with Disney to re-release the digital versions of two classic Star Wars games from the early '90s, Star Wars: X-Wing and Star Wars: TIE Fighter, back in 2014.

Purchasing the DRM-free classic Disney platform is a great way to kill time before Nintendo releases the NES Classic Edition, the mini '80s console that will be released on Nov. 11 for $59.99 with more than 30 titles.
