In Other News – 7 May 2015

2 min read


My mind and body are really confused at the moment. It’s Thursday and we’ve been working – get this – every single day this week. Not only that, but we’re a Porra and a Yank down this week too, which means Darryn and Geoff have been breaking more than sweat while I cluelessly wonder what’s going on. Hey, it’s a tough job by somebody has to watch it get done, right?

Speaking of slacking off, today’s Throwback Thursday goodness comes with a healthy side of Disney nostalgia. Considering I sip from the fountain of youth every second day, I haven’t really played a large share of MS-DOS titles. One that I did get my hands on, however, was Aladdin – and it’s still pretty spectacular to play.

The 1994 platformer will have you stealing apples and cutting the pants off guards as soon as the gates open – and it’s incredibly unforgiving. I assumed my younger self was just bad at video games at the time, but I didn’t fare much better after giving the game a whirl again today. Watching the changing Genie expressions in the corner doesn’t really help with the never either.

You can give the game a go below. Just prepare “A Whole New World” to be stuck in your head for the rest of the day.
