The first of several Disney-inspired games to appear on the NES, Mickey Mousecapade is a simplistic platform-style game that doesn't compare well to similar efforts from the time period. You control Mickey, and to a certain extent Minnie, as they travel through five levels in order to save their "mystery friend." Essentially, you move Mickey, and Minnie mimics your actions for no apparent reason. Occasionally you'll have to rescue her from a crow, but other than that she's mostly a distraction since she can't get hurt. The main characters are flat, simply drawn, and actually have the least personality of any of the game's basic elements. The visuals are serviceable, but the music is overly repetitive. Although Mickey Mousecapade was published by Capcom it was developed by Hudson Soft, which may explain why it pales in comparison to Capcom's internally developed Disney's DuckTales, released just a year later. ~ Skyler Miller, All Game Guide
