Disney Universe

You are the antivirus in Disney Universe

10:00 AM on 10.05.2011 // John Speerbrecker

In a whole new world under the sea, in a tale as old as time that brings the circle of life together. This is a snapshot of the Disney universe, basically. In Disney Universe the game, you get the chance to experience the variety of the many worlds that Disney has created through the eyes of a game developer.

It's quite the intriguing story. You're a game developer who is trying to design a Disney themed videogame. You're happily programming away when you are attacked by a computer virus that is slowly ruining your game that you have been working so hard on. The game basically sees you sending antivirus software to combat the virus and do a little quality assurance along the way!

Disney Universe (Wii, PS3, Xbox 360)
Developer: Disney Interactive Studios
Publisher: Disney Interactive Studios
Release: October 25, 2011
MSRP: 49.99

In order for the game to recognize your antivirus warriors, they will have to wear a costume from the world of Disney. There are over 42 choices of costumes, like the lovely Ariel (The Little Mermaid). Each costume comes with its own tool and they can be upgraded multiple times through the course of your adventure in order to make you stronger against the virus minions.

One thing that I found great in this whole regard are the many different costumes you can wear. You can find yourself taking many hours with each costume trying to get all of their tools set up to the maximum level. You can even share your tools with other players.

The level design does lend itself to a side-scrolling platformer with many puzzle elements. In one part of the game, we had to find some rather large seeds and plant them. Then we had to find a source of water which helps the plants grow to an instant tree that we were able to use to get to the next area. In the world of Aladdin, we had to find pieces of a scarab and assemble them to create a key that would help us exit the level.

The best way to play is through four player co-op mode. It's a real treat for those of you with children or if you just happen to like cutesy games. While you are playing co-op, a flying flashing red cube will appear to help you move along in the level. If you touch the cube, it can do all sorts of fun things like turn you into a basketball and all of a sudden, you have a little game of tag happening where whoever gets touched by the ball, becomes the ball. It's a nice short little diversion.

Disney Universe looks like the worlds that we have come to know from Disney. Vibrant, colorful, and full of imagination and wonder. The story is something that feels a little uncommon from what we have seen from Disney, but not doing the same thing over and over is always a welcome idea.

The Unofficial Destructoid Christmas Card has been ordered. If you claimed one, you should probably PM me your address now.

Started playing Wonderful 101 and it's good, but pretty overwhelming. Think I'll put it down for now. Also sad that there is no penis formation. [img][/img]

Does anyone know if Advent of Indies is happening this year? I looked it up today and didn't find any updates on their Twitter since January.

I brought that cake I made into work and it disappeared fast. Maybe if I lose my job I can just make a living selling cakes on the end of my street.

My review-in-progress of Just Cause 3: Explosions - good. Grappling hook - good. Flying - good. Driving - an abomination. 8/10.

Well, ugh, this is awkward. A year ago I wrote a cblog about cool indie games coming in 2015, and not a single one of them has been released :/

I was happy to have never spoiled myself the final boss of Splatoon's campaign. That was one of the best boss fights ever and I absolutely love the credits track. So relaxing. [youtube][/youtube]

Sometimes, on more dreary days, I make a smiley face with sliced-pickle eyes and bacon grin in my lunch-burger. It fills me up all the same, but I feel a warm sense of accomplishment, achievement and satisfaction on top of it.

When I was a lad, I loved this game something fierce. [img][/img] Anyone else ever play the tie in Small Soldiers games? Maybe it's nostalgia, but I remember them being not too bad.

Finally got my surface pro 3. Holy shit I love this little guy. And Windows 10 is better than I thought.
Putting more effort into iOS game review than African American history book report. This is not what Dr. King died for. Or maybe he did, I wouldn't know because I'm not doing the book report. Wha-hey!!
