Donald has a bad temper...

...while Mickey has a fear of heights.

Remember the time when Disney games were actually fun to play? It's no urban legend folks, it's true. During the 16-bit consoles era, Sega made a number of highly-playable Disney-based platformers! Two of Sega's best efforts back then were definitely Castle of Illusion and Quackshot. In Castle, you control Mickey Mouse through a variety of fantasy lands in order to save Minnie from the clutches of the evil witch from Snow White. Quackshot is more of a shooter/platformer hybrid starring the lovable Donald Duck who embarks on a treasure-hunting adventure of Indiana Jones proportion - and yes, we are talking about the old Indy, not the Crystal-Skull version. Both games contain marvelous tunes, sweet platforming, and epic boss fights. I used to own both for the Genesis and when this compilation disc became available, I knew I just had to have it. Strange that they both haven't made it to the Virtual Console yet...
