Mickey Mania: The Timeless Adventures of Mickey Mouse is a 2D side-scrolling platform game that chronicles many of Mickey Mouse’s most memorable cartoons. Each and every level in the game is based on a Mickey Mouse cartoon. This game has achieved legendary status by many because of the game’s silky smooth gameplay, rock-solid control, pristine graphics, and sound that is a treat for the ears.
You can defeat enemies through two methods; you can either jump on their heads, or you can assault them with a barrage of marbles. There are 24 stages in this game and all of them are jam-packed with action and nostalgia. The levels are pretty unique and each of them has their own goals, for example, the first level is based on the first Mickey Mouse cartoon ever, Steamboat Willie, in this level, everything except Mickey appears in black and white and your goal is to meet up with Willie. All of the levels in the game, with the exception of a 3D moose chasing level, take place in 2D.
The graphics in Mickey Mania: The Timeless Adventures of Mickey Mouse are amazing, simply amazing. Each and every one of the game’s 24 levels looks just like the cartoon it’s based on and are chock-full of little touches that really add to the nostalgia factor in the game. The first level takes place in black and white, with a film strip going down the screen, the film has scratches and other flaws on it that really help to give the game an authentic look and feel to it, also give you a feel for how cartoons were back in 1928 (when Steamboat Willie was made), it also helps to give you a sense of respect for the cartoon and it really gets you into the game because it adds to the feel of the game. Mickey Mania mixes old-school cartoons with new-school technical effects. Scaling and rotation are used throughout the game, and they are used perfectly because they are only used when it’s appropriate. Scaling is used throughout the entire aformentioned moose hunt level and it really adds to the excitement of the game, when you see that giant moose barreling down on you your blood pumps and you run as fast as you can, but you also have to avoid various obstacles in your path, adding to the excitement. The effect looks amazing and adds to the feel of the game because it looks just like the scene it is based on. The animation in the game is perfect, simply perfect. This is because each and every frame of animation used in this game was drawn by actual Disney animators giving it an authentic look that few, if any, games can match. It really gives the game a look all its own.
The sound throughout the game is amazing across the board. The game is chock-full of happy-go-lucky, feel-good music that fits the game perfectly and will remain etched in your brain. The various sound effects in the game, from the sound of Mickey jumping, to the sound of a marble smacking an enemy, all have a comedic edge to them that adds even more to the happy-go-lucky feel of the game. The multitude of voice snippets from Mickey compliment all of the above nicely, they are crystal clear and really add to the feel of the game.
