The Search is On!

Get ready for the scariest adventure ever! Oh, but first, find out how it all began in Uncle Scrooge's grand library.

"Huey, Dewey, Louie, I have a special present for each of you. It's a Lucky Dime! Did I ever tell you that I started with only a dime, my Lucky Dime? Look how wealthy I am now!" boasts Uncle Scrooge as he hands Huey, Dewey and Louie their presents.

"Only ten cents! Nobody can get rich from a dime!" sneers Donald, as he looks over.

The billionaire turns to Donald and replies. "Well, you see, the kind of luck your dime brings you will depend on how hard you work. Understand?"

Meanwhile, a dark shadow appears in the corner of the library's window.

A few hours pass. It's time for Donald and his nephews to say goodbye to Uncle Scrooge.

Then suddenly, three ravens descend, grab Huey, Dewey and Louie, along with their Lucky Dimes, and disappear into thin air.

While Donald and Uncle Scrooge freeze in their shoes, overwhelmed by what has taken place in front of their eyes, a dark figure descends and snatches the Lucky Dime from Uncle Scrooge! It's Magica De Spell, the evil sorceress!

"Hee, hee, heee!" shrieks Magica "Scrooge's Lucky Dimes are mine, at last! I'll use them to become filthy rich! Richer than you. Scrooge!" Then she vanishes.

What's going to happen now? Somebody has to save Huey, Dewey and Louie and restore the four Lucky Dimes! Who else is there, but Donald?! Uncle Scrooge is worried to death — about the boys and his dimes — he's even promising Donald a reward for their safe return.

Now, this is where you come in. Join Donald and search tor the captured nephews and the Lucky Dimes. Pick up useful gadgets and items along the way as you tackle oncoming baddies in six treacherous lands. Then enter Magica's haunted castle, where you'll come face to face with the evil sorceress herself! She has the last dime — Uncle Scrooge's old Number One. Only Donald and you can win it back! Good luck!
