In the past, Capcom produced many neat games under the Disney flag. While many people are familiar with Mickey Mouse games and Ducktales and all that good stuff, not too many mention this game. Is it rare? Not really (though I don't see it as much as I used to) and it isn't terribly obscure, but since the title doesn't have the name of some famous cartoon or Disney character, it doesn't tend to pop up much. The game is also pretty late in the NES life cycle so that also has a little to do with it. The game has a very simple story: Find the key that Goofy lost because it is necessary to start a big parade. It's just one key right? It's not that simple, because in order to find the main key, you must locate a few silver keys first. Find all the keys and get your groove on in the Magic Kingdom.

The graphics are pretty decent for this game. The animation could've been better, but they are pretty good for the most part. The music of many old Capcom games reminds me of Mega Man for some reason. This game is no exception. Of course, that's just me, but the music is decent. It could have been better (Since Capcom makes great music and this was not their greatest effort) but it is somewhat repetitive. This is not entirely bad though, because some games like Choujikuu Yousai Macross (NES/FC) are rather catchy even though it's repetitive like nobody's business.

Did the gameplay need its own paragraph? Sure...why not? The game has your nameless hero jogging thru the Magic Kingdom looking for the keys. In order to do that, you have to talk to people and answer Disney related questions to get hints to finding Silver Keys. You may actually learn a thing or two about Disney that you may not have known already so it's kinda educational...if you you happen to be doing an essay on Disney's history. The Kingdom has numerous areas that test different abilities. Actually, the game is composed of several mini-games. The images below show only the action portion, but another stage is a racing stage. Yet another stage happens to be a "Dragon's Lair" (sort of ) kind of business. You must press the correct button at the precise time in order to advance. This creates a bit of variety, which is appreciated, but I would have rather taken a full action game instead. Still, it's good that they tried to make the game more innovative. Overall, the game is good, but moderately challenging. Challenge doesn't bother me any though.
