The Lucky Dime Caper Starring Donald Duck, known in Japan as Donald Duck's Lucky Dime, is a platform game released for Sega Master System and Sega Game Gear in 1991. It is the 8-bit counterpart to QuackShot (a Sega Mega Drive/Genesis-only release), another Disney-licensed game which also features Donald Duck as the main character, though the two games differ in story and gameplay. A sequel to 'Lucky Dime Caper,' Deep Duck Trouble, also featuring Donald Duck, was released for Sega Master System and Sega Game Gear in 1993.
The evil witch Magica De Spell has stolen Uncle Scrooge's Number One Dime and kidnapped his nephews, Huey, Dewey, and Louie. Donald Duck embarks on a mission, traveling around the world to save his three nephews and recover Scrooge's lucky dime.
The game is a side-scrolling platformer. The gameplay follows the same pattern of Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse which was released for Sega consoles a year before, but unlike Mickey, Donald can attack enemies by hitting them with a hammer or throwing discs. He can also attack faster by collecting star items.
This version of The Lucky Dime Caper was designed for the Sega Master System (SMS), which was an 8-bit video game console manufactured
by Sega in the years 1985 - 1992. It was a direct competitor to the much more successful NES console and the predecessor of the much beter console Sega Genesis.
The unit price of Master System was approximately $ 200 and worldwide only 13 million units of this console were sold. More information about Sega Master
System can be found here.
