The Hamburglar has stolen Ronald's bag of magic tricks! In this 2D platformer, it's up to you to play as Mick or Mac and get it back. Go across various lands and meet McDonald's characters as you travel to places like Ronald's Clubhouse, Birdie's Treehouse, and the Hamburglar's Hideout as you collect Ronald's cards. To kill the many animal enemies you will find, you must collect bricks and throw them. In some sections you will travel along water in a dinghy; also watch for moving platforms and bonus sections, The game features seven different worlds with over 30 main levels and nine bonus levels.
When it comes to fast food Burger King is having it my way. If you're taking games, then McDonald's makes me say "I'm loving it!" Of course, I've never seen a Burger King branded computer game.
McDonald Land is a Mario-style, side-scrolling, platform puzzle game, allowing you free movement in both directions, with no time limits. You jump from tree to tree, block to block, spring high into the sky and collect "arches" and "game cards." Collect enough cards and you can move on to the next area.
For a game that one would think is designed for kids, it is not as easy as I would have expected. I'd like to think I have normal skills - not an expert by any stretch - representative of your average player. I managed to get to the second area - "Birdie's Birdhouse" - but not without some serious concentration.
The key controls may have a small amount to do with it. You control your kid with the "Q" and "A" for vertical moves, and "O" and "P" for horizontal moves. The space bar is used for picking up and throwing things.
The graphics are crisp and clean, and they still look very good. The music is standard fare for a platform game. The game play is simple enough, but variety is added such as water areas, slippery ice, weight sensitive blocks, and more.
McDonald Land is a fun game for the whole family. The price is right and there are 0 calories. "Would like some fries with that?"
McDonald Land is a fun little platform game created by Virgin Interactive to promote McDonald, one of the world's most recognizable franchise back when Happy Meals were all the rage. The game stars you, the McDonald fan, on a quest from Ronald McDonald himself to help retrieve the Magic Bag from the evil Hamburglar. Your immediate task, though, is to search the levels of Ronald's Clubhouse and find at least four of his Puzzle Cards, after which he will tell you how to get to Birdie's House and beyond.
In terms of gameplay, McDonald Land is essentially Super Mario Brothers in disguise: your character is a stumpy kid in a cartoony world, who must collect the "M" logos and kill enemies by jumping on them. There are bonus levels, secret entrances, and many power-ups to keep the game interesting. Many McDonald characters make the appearance in the game at various stages, and there are enough surprises to keep fans glued to the screen. Die-hard platform fans will wince at the game's very easy levels that are sparsely populated with monsters and uninspired level design, but younger players will find it a fun and accessible game. In contrast to Super Mario games, there is no time limit, so players can spend all the time they want to explore McDonald Land. All in all, this is a good introduction to the platform genre for kids and newbies alike, but experts should look elsewhere. The game bodes well for Virgin's future promotional games (e.g. Cool Spot).
