McDonaldland (Game Boy) Playthrough – NintendoComplete


A playthrough of Ocean’s 1992 licensed-based platformer for the Nintendo Game Boy, McDonaldland.

McDonaldland was only ever officially released (as McDonaldland, anyway) in Europe as an adaptation of M.C. Kids, the McDonalds-branded NES game that had seemingly little to do with hamburgers. The game was reskinned in other territories and released with 7-Up branding as Spot: The Cool Adventure.

McDonaldland is a much smaller and simpler game than M.C. Kids was. The levels are far smaller and more linear than they were before, and the difficulty level has been reduced a fair amount. I like this version quite a bit better than the NES game – I thought that the game was much more fun with the collect-a-thon and exploration aspects removed. It’s a standard, solidly-built platformer. Even the license doesn’t make it stand out too much, but it is a neat novelty, especially if you have played Spot.

Still, I would have absolutely loved to seen a Game Boy port of Data East’s Donald Land on the NES!

And this is much better than most of Ocean’s other platformers from the early 90s, in case you were wondering.

If you’re interested, you can find my video of M.C. Kids right here:

    I honestly can't believe what McDonald's has actually done. They've made a video game, a cartoon, and so much other stuff. It's incredible.

    Funny– I saw Irate Gamer's review of Spot: The Cool Adventure, and now I see where it came from.

    I wonder if the future managers of McDonald’s ever played this as kids? This game screams “minimum wage”.

    The FC Data East game is also pretty decent! I really liked the visuals/music in that one, even if it was pretty buggy overall, with all the weird ways you could cheat thanks to the balloons. 🙂

    I've never quite understood why McDonald's has video games, but at least they're generally pretty good. You might better recognize this one as Spot: The Cool Adventure, which was the reskinned version of the game released outside Europe.
