Description of Donald Duck's Playground

Donald Duck's Playground is one of the best early edutainment titles, designed by Al Lowe for Sierra based on Disney characters that's unfortunately not as well known as its contemporary Black Cauldron, Donald Duck's Playground is nevertheless a charming collection of mini-games, mostly arcade-oriented, for kids.

The abundance of humor and surprises in these creative mini-games more than make up for the lack of plot or traditional adventure-style puzzles. The plot is simple: you are Donald Duck, who must work to buy toys for your nephew to enjoy. Despite the lack of ending, the mini-games are all a lot of fun. The game is based on Sierra's AGI engine (King's Quest 3 etc.), which makes the graphics and animation outstanding ( for 1988 at least).

Of special note to game historians is the fact that this was the very first EGA game Al Lowe designed at Sierra On-Line. Thumbs up, way up!

This game seems to have issues running, at least for me. Keys act as if they are being held down, and the game runs way too fast. I can fix the speed issue with ctrl + F11, but not the keys issue. Anyone else having this problem? Other games work fine for me.

Now this brings back some memories!
My 1st Grade teacher had an old IBM PC and an Apple II back in the corner of her classroom, and I was really the only one who played with it. They had the floppy for this game for the Apple II version, but no Joystick to play it with :(

Another classic I used to play on My C64. The pc version (EGA) is wonderful, more stuff than in C64 version. CGA version is a bit poor on the graphics side.

Great game for children, still playable and amusing. Awesome music by Al Lowe!
