Their help is needed in Toontown because Scrooge McDuck has accidentally unleashed the Cogs, and now they are determined to turn its fun-filled and colourful landscape into a bleak, grey metropolis of bland skyscrapers and businesses. Players - who appear in the game as 3D personalised Toon characters - have to take-on the Cogs to help rescue their town.
In addition to this key task, there are hundreds of quests that must be completed for players to progress through Toontown. And the game also features a host of mini-games in each neighbourhood - including Lucky Number, Underwater Ring, Boom-A-Toon, Toon Tag, Match Minnie, Dodge-a-Cog, Tug-O-War and Catching Game. Mini-games earn players jelly beans, which can be used to buy battle props in Goofy's Gag Shop. And what do gags do? Help you defeat those pesky Cogs!
