Game Reviews

The game begins in a mansion, and you are Maui Mallard (Donald Duck), an adventurer armed with nothing but a bug-firing weapon, for witch you must collect amo distributed all over the levels.

At the beginning, the game may appear a little boring, because all you have to do is to advance trough the mansion, killing enemies and jumping trough multiple obstacles. The game begins to be really fun after the second level, when you are able, from that moment on, to turn yourself into a powerful ninja, needing to do that sometimes, in order to advance in the levels, as some places are only accessible that way.

Donald Duck has survived through so many adventures which others won’t cover for the eternity. Some of those adventures have been easy but this game plunges our duck into a real hazard.

Donald Duck finds himself on a tropical island where he unwillingly becomes the witness of how an idol of the local tribe Shaboom Shaboom is being abducted. So, Brave and noble Donald starts off to search the relic.

Most donald duck cartoon lovers will really like this game and it is like a treat for them.

Disney video games have always maintained a standard of quality that must be the envy of licensees everywhere. While there may have been a few misfires in the past, quality games like Mickey Mania, Aladdin, The Lion King and Quackshot, among others, have successfully translated the tradition of great storytelling and beautiful artwork that Disney is famous for. Maui Mallard, an original title from Disney Interactive, looks to be another feather in the cap of the Mouse.

Maui Mallard is a new character to the Disney universe and he's played by Donald Duck. He's what they call a "Quack Detective," a hardboiled duck with a Hawaiian print shirt, a smart bill and a trusty bug gun that gets him out of tight situations. His latest case takes him on a quest for the missing idol of Shabuhm Shabuhm, an ancient artifact that protects the island from evil "mojo spirits." He has three days to find it; if he fails, the island is doomed, if he succeeds, he'll be a hero.

Maui Mallard is set up like a traditional platform game, but unlike most carts in this genre, it actually has a ton of creativity on its side.The folks at Disney Interactive have made a new universe for Donald to inhabit, and it's a beauty.The game's visual design is highly reminiscent of I940's-era cartoons, I920's surrealism and I990's nostalgia. As you maneuver Donald through the colorful detailed world of the island, something will strike you immediately: Maui Mallard has hours of gameplay to offer due to its huge levels and that it's not just a game for kids; it's challenging enough for older gamers to play and enjoy and has enough humor and detail to fascinate fans and non-fans of the world of Disney.
