Disney classics reimagined as 8-bit videogames

With the tag line 'truth and movies', independent magazine Little White Lies (opens in new tab) is known for both the quality of its writing and its unique and innovative approach to print design. The publication regularly sets design competitions and timed drawing sessions, and here they've set readers the task of designing a start screen for a fictional 8-bit Disney video game.

The challenge was set in celebration of the UK release of Wreck-it Ralph (opens in new tab) with entries remaking such movies as Snow White, Tron, Up and Aladdin. It's clear that these entrants had a lot of fun completing the brief, and you can see the full roster of entries here (opens in new tab).

The results have us pining for those old games consoles - and we can only dream someone from Disney will stumble upon these and make a start on them. We'd play each and every one in a heartbeat!
