The Lucky Dime Caper

Description

One of the classic Master System Disney licensed platformers, this game s actually quite hard in the later stages; it makes up for it by giving you lots of extra lives. The artwork is nicely done, with more detail than most games. It’s just a shame they couldn’t have taken a little extra care to make things line up better.

The multiple weapons are a nice try, but apart from a few places where it has a huge advantage, the discus is mostly rubbish and the hammer works better. Having a rotating attack - that goes behind Donald before attacking in front - is also quite unusual.
