Rocketeer, The box cover

Rocketeer, The screenshot
Undoubtedly one of the best Disney games ever (at least until the release of Jungle Book, The and later platform games), The Rocketeer is based on the retro movie of the same name that is reminiscent of Cinemaware's classic Rocket Ranger. As vigilante hero the Rocketeer, fight through 4 huge levels ranging from piloting a biplane to aerial combat with jetpacks. Each level is quite difficult, but the gorgeous graphics and cool cut-scenes will keep you hooked to the very end. The game also deserves mention as one of the first games ever to feature live-action 256-color VGA graphics.
