The Magical Quest Starring Mickey Mouse, the first game in the Disney's Magical Quest series, was released for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System during 1992 and 1993 and later re-released for the Game Boy Advance in 2002. In six different levels and with four different special power outfits it features Mickey Mouse on his journey to find his dog Pluto. The game, and especially its outfit system and graphics, received mostly positive reviews. It was criticized, however, for being relatively short. A port for Sega Mega Drive was originally planned, but was abandoned.
Mickey Mouse, Pluto, Goofy and Donald Duck are playing catch in the park. When it is Goofy's turn to throw the ball, he accidentally throws it too far. Pluto runs off chasing the ball and Goofy runs after Pluto, leaving Mickey alone. Mickey goes searching for his friends after a while, but falls down a cliff into a strange magical land. Later, Mickey meets an old wizard who tells Mickey that Pluto was taken by the evil king Pete. Mickey sets out to find his friend and stop Pete's tyranny.
Mickey Mouse can wear four different types of outfits in The Magical Quest Starring Mickey Mouse. Some outfits can be upgraded in the general stores found scattered throughout the game.
Mickey starts with his traditional clothing. It allows him to grab certain objects and items and spin-throw them. Mickey's second outfit, the magician outfit, is awarded to him in the beginning of the second level and allows Mickey to shoot magic at his enemies. The size of the magic blasts depends on how long it is charged. However, shooting magic empties Mickey's magic meter, which is refilled by collecting a magical lamp item. Additionally, Mickey can breathe underwater and control magical carpets with the magician outfit.
The firefighter uniform that Mickey finds in the third level lets him spray a continuous water stream at enemies. In addition, the water stream can be used to put out fires, push blocks and form icicles. Similarly to the magician outfit, spraying water with the firefighter uniform drains Mickey's water meter which is refilled by collecting the fire hydrant item.
In the fourth level of the game Goofy gives Mickey the mountain-climbing gear, which allows Mickey to use a grappling hook to attach to certain objects. He can then hoist or swing himself on top of them. Moreover, his grappling hook can be used to grab items. The grappling hook can also be used as an offensive weapon to stun enemies and remove their protection.
You can control this game easily by using the keyboard of your PC (see the table next to the game). However, for maximum gaming enjoyment, we strongly recommend using a USB gamepad that you simply plug into the USB port of your computer. If you do not have a gamepad, buy a suitable USB controller in Amazon or in some of your favorite online stores.
