Donald Duck’s Playground

From the Database of Home of the Underdogs




Copyright 1988, Sierra On-Line

Donald Duck’s Playground is one of the best early edutainment titles, designed by Al Lowe for Sierra based on Disney characters that’s unfortunately not as well known as its contemporary Black Cauldron, Donald Duck’s Playground is nevertheless a charming collection of mini-games, mostly arcade-oriented, for kids. The abundance of humor and surprises in these creative mini-games more than make up for the lack of plot or traditional adventure-style puzzles. The plot is simple: you are Donald Duck, who must work to buy toys for your nephew to enjoy. Despite the lack of ending, the mini-games are all a lot of fun. The game is based on Sierra’s AGI engine (King’s Quest 3 etc.), which makes the graphics and animation outstanding ( for 1988 at least). Of special note to game historians is the fact that this was the very first EGA game Al Lowe designed at Sierra On-Line. Thumbs up, way up!
