Within 24 hours of being released for mobile devices, the international games collaboration Disney Crossy Road was #1 on the US iPad Chart.
A fresh take on the original Crossy Road game, created by the hugely successful Melbourne games development studio Hipster Whale, Disney Crossy Road looks set for global success.
A joint collaboration with Disney, the new game features almost 150 Disney and Pixar characters in a never-ending 8-bit adventure to cross the road safely, drawing on animated films such as Toy Story, Inside Out and Tangled.
While the original Crossy Road was built over a 12 week period, Disney Crossy Road has taken nearly 12 months to create.
The original Crossy Road has been downloaded more than 120 million times since it was released in November 2014.
