Deep Duck Trouble Starring Donald Duck, released in Japan as Donald Duck no 4tsu no Hihō (ドナルドダックの4つの秘宝), is a Sega Master System and Sega Game Gear title originally released in 1993. It is a Disney-licensed game developed by Sega.

Gameplay[edit]

This game is a platform game reminiscent of Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse, as both have similar gameplay elements.

Donald's chief means of attack are kicking blocks (some of which contain diamonds or ice cream cones) and consuming chili peppers, which temporarily enable Donald to plow through all enemies at high speed. The player can choose map locations to begin the game. If a player loses three lives the game is over.

Plot[edit]

Donald Duck is beckoned by his uncle Scrooge McDuck from a curse which has puffed him up into a floating balloon.

Commercial performance[edit]

In 1999 Majesco re-released this game, under license from Sega, along with re-releasing the Game Gear system itself and several other titles in the United States. These games are sometimes found in discount bins or dollar shops, since Majesco has shifted focus to new game franchises.[citation needed]
