The First Good Licensed Game

Back at the turn of the decade between the 1980s and 1990s, something miraculous happened in the offices of Capcom.

A Pleasant Surprise

For being very kid like in nature, I had a lot of fun with one. You play several levels beating bosses and accumulating money. The gameplay was solid, you can have good ole Uncle Scrooge hop on is cane and squash enemies. Also, depending how much money you had at the end, the bigger the pile of cash in the final ending sequence. I played this one several times.
