McDonald’s Treasure Land Adventure

American Box Art

Who knew that Ronald McDonald could star in such a fun video game? So was the case back in the days of the Sega Genesis. Just hearing the soundtrack today reminds me of the times I spent sprinkling magic into enemies and looking for lost treasure map pieces, all while being surrounded by McDonald’s characters and images. Back then pretty much half the toys in my huge toy box at home were from Happy Meals as well.

The title screen makes you adventurous for a cheeseburger.

The story is basic enough:

One day as Ronald was taking a walk in the Magical Forest...He found a piece of a treasure map

I wonder where the rest of the map is...Three bad guys had the map

Ok lets go on a treasure hunt!And so the adventure began...

The game is short, but fun while you play. It was important for games made during that era to not drag on too long because the save feature usually was not included. Ronald can run, shoot magic at enemies, use a mechanical claw to get into places high up, and jump pretty far. Each level is unique and has new properties to it, keeping the freshness alive. The game still remains a big favorite of mine even today.
