The Magical Quest starring Mickey Mouse (Mickey no Magical Adventure in Japan) is a game released in 1992 for the SNES, featuring Disney characters. It was the first of three Magical Quest games made by Capcom. The game was followed by The Great Circus Mystery starring Mickey and Minnie and Disney's Magical Quest 3 starring Mickey & Donald.
The game was remade for the Game Boy Advance in 2002 under the title Disney's Magical Quest Starring Mickey and Minnie Mouse. Published by Nintendo, the GBA version adds Minnie to the game as a playable character who is identical to Mickey in terms of gameplay. The GBA port also introduced a save feature and a character select screen similar to that of the SNES version of the second game in the series.
The game features Mickey Mouse traveling in a strange land ruled by the evil emperor Pete, searching for his dog Pluto. With the help of a wizard, Mickey sets out to find his friend and stop Pete's tyranny.
Unlike its sequels, the first game in the series lacks the ability to save or load progress (which means players would have to the beat the game in a single sitting), and although it supports two players, they cannot play simultaneously; a player only gains control when the other dies.
Mickey's outfits in this game include: a magician outfit, which enables him to shoot magic; a firefighter uniform that enables him to continually spray water; and mountain-climbing gear that gives him a grappling hook that can attach to certain surfaces and objects. When wearing the magician or firefighter outfits, Mickey's magic and water abilities are limited, and must be recharged by collecting magic lamps and fire hydrants.
