Disney Crossy Road Review
RELIVE THE SPLENDOR OF THE DISNEY CLASSICS
So here we go. Another post about Disney and it’s heavy presence on the app store, but this time, it’s simple trickery and lending of an already popular brand provides many moments of accomplishment, annoyance and nostalgia. The original Crossy Road was a massive success for the team at HIPSTER WHALE in 2014, they even got their own segment to show off their app at an Apple conference. To me, they’ve already made it. With that in mind, they seemed content with the app they had, I never imagined the team at Disney to even consider approaching such a popular, yet in comparison, tiny developer. I couldn’t have even imagined what they’d create together. But alas, they’ve made magic.
Fundamentally the game is the same as the iteration before it, but it’s the Disney spin that provides the most fun! All you have to do is tap, swipe left or right to dodge various obstacles and get the highest possible score you can. It’s basic. It’s simple. What keeps me compelled are the endless Disney characters that i’m so familiar with. You start with the original Mickey Mouse and from there you unlock parts of your history that you’d forgotten about. I’ll keep those under wraps for you as I don’t want to ruin the fun but you’ll be pleasantly surprised and the smile that comes with it stretch from cheek to cheek.
The game has so many little easter eggs and different ways to boost your score, it’s a game that just keeps on giving! Well done HIPSTER WHALE and Disney, you’re union has brought me much joy and awakened the child inside of me, I’ll probably die of excitement when I unlock my favourite Disney character! Until then, please keep the additional content coming! 5 Taps from me!
