Nintendo has provided me with an advance copy of Disney Magical World, which is now available for Nintendo 3DS. It has some gameplay similarities to Animal Crossing, while also featuring over 60 Disney characters. I'll be writing about the game and providing regular updates as I progress through the game. Want to start from the beginning?
Day 31: Goofy Star Wand
As I continued playing action quests in the Pirates of the Caribbean world, I found that some of the later levels take place in glowy caves like this. They look really cool.
Maybe the glowing spots are where the ghosts have peed.
At the end of one level, a big monster apparently took Captain Jack Sparrow! I was expecting to have to fight the boss right then and there, but the quest suddenly ended! I soon found out the boss fight was a separate stage all to itself. Here's a look at the final boss of the pirate world, Glorptopus!
If you think he looks bad, wait until you smell his breath!
As I was fighting it, something bad happened: The game froze up! I had to shut down the 3DS completely, since the home button wouldn't do anything. It was definitely disappointing, but this is only the second time the game has frozen up on me in many, many hours of playing. Fortunately, I had saved shortly before starting that level, so I didn't lose much.
The boss fight was a bit tricky at first, mainly because you don't start with any magic stones to restore your health. Usually, boss fights come at the end of a level, when you've already accumulated a number of magic stones. However, you can still get magic stones from the smaller enemies during this fight, so it's not a big problem. After one failed attempt, I beat the boss and saved Captain Jack. This unlocked three more action quests; if my count is correct, those are the final three stages.
Today, McDuck's had a mini cactus for sale. I had two of them already, but I needed a third so I could finally complete the "3 table accessories ensemble" combo for the western theme. To my knowledge, there's no recipe for it, so it has taken me a while to get three of them. Even though I've held countless western parties in recent weeks, I only had 7-theme combos--and I generally didn't use the rare foods either. But now that I have the table accessories I needed, I went all-out and held the 8-theme combo party with the rare food. Goofy, Mickey, and Donald showed up, all in western attire. The exclamation point above Goofy's head indicates he's about to give me the Goofy star medal!
And indeed he did! What a big relief to finally get that. I then went over to Yen Sid's tower to make the Goofy star wand.
The magic wand even wears his hat. That's...goofy.
I also made the five pirate themed wands while I was there, even though they're not as powerful as the secret wands. I now only need three more wands to complete my collection: Mickey, Cinderella, and Alice.
I found Donald Duck at his old fishing spot, wanting to take a photo. I agreed, and the whole gang joined in.
This is one of my favorite commemorative photos so far.
I finished up my day by playing through an action quest called "Get the Pirate Flag Back!" in the Pirates of the Caribbean world. It probably had more puzzles than any other stage I've played so far. It was also a pretty long stage, but I completed it without much trouble. I now only have two more action stages to play, and I'll get to them next time.
Until then, have a great day and please explore the other sections of JVGS. For the latest entries (or to comment or ask a question), visit the main Disney Magical World Blog page.
