Solving Mysteries & Rewriting Histories: Why DuckTales is One of the Greatest Games of All Time

Today, “licensed” is practically a dirty word in the game industry. It refers to any game based on a story or characters from a different medium such as television, movies, books, etc. The terms of these license agreements often require the game’s release date to coincide with that of a related piece of media. Therefore, budgets are slashed and corners are cut in order to meet deadlines. These sacrifices, as well as the fact that development studios are often given limited creative control over licensed projects, are why licensed games have developed such a bad reputation. Therefore, the notion that a licensed game could be remastered 24 years after its corresponding TV show was cancelled isn’t just unlikely, it’s insane.

A good game not great even for its time. So many better games back in the day.

Duck Tales 1 and 2, Lion King, Star Wars, Aladdin (both the SNES and Genesis each had their own unique version), Mickey's Castle of Illusion, Mickey Mania, Chip 'n many good licensed games from back then.

i played chip n dale 1 and 2 all the time, along with robocop, xevious, contra, jackal, legend of zelda, double dragon, battletoads, paperboy, marble madness, snake rattle n roll, obviously mario 1 & 3, nes open(had mario and luigi), and last but not least ducktales

the memories....

I do remember quitting duck tales because I couldn't get past a certain spot with scrooge, maybe when I play the re-release I get to complete the game...

and what was the game where you played as a boy in a dreamworld and you got to ride on different animal's?

@dedicatedtogamers, that is the game. I wish nintendo would bring back more games like these old ones and keep them in similar styles, like they're doing with a link to the past 2 and donkey kong country returns.

I believe the game you're talking about is Little Nemo: Dream Master. Also a very cool gem.

Capcom's Disney games were amasing back in the late 80s and early 90s. I think my own personal favourite was Mickey's Magical Quest on the SNES.

And this is why you buy a Wii and download old retro games. Zelda:Link to the Past
Duck Tales
Double Dragon

I love being a Gamer
