The Disney Afternoon Collections takes a portion of the fan most loved great Disney games that were initially discharged for the Nintendo Entertainment System to protect and incorporate them in a bundle with additional items like the first work of art, boxart and ideas from the game that still can’t seem to advance toward fans beside the stalwart authorities.

While you can play through each of the game included in this collection, there are also some optional modes available that add extra value to these games. They are the boss rush mode and the time attack mode. The time attack mode in particular requires special mention here as not only it includes a leaderboard, it also gives us the ability to watch any of the attempted record breaking time attack run on the leaderboards. If you would like to see the tricks used to achieve a short time, then you can do it directly from the game. You can also attempt to challenge the time set by the player by ‘racing’ against them. Boss Rush mode also works in similar way while giving the same choices as the time attack mode. If you want to know the secrets of defeating a boss quickly, this mode will be interested to watch out.

While the original Nintendo Entertainment System didn’t allow saving at any point during the game, this collection adds the ability to save and load at any point making it far easier to complete these classics. Together with the rewind mechanics that have been added to this collection, completing our childhood classics will be easier now than it was in the past. These aren’t forced so if you want to play them in the old way, you can simply choose to ignore them.
