'Toontown' Launches

by Rainier on May 24, 2004 @ 3:30 a.m. PDT

Toontown is the world's first 3D massively multiplayer online PC game (MMOG) designed especially for children and their families. Disney's Toontown Online throws open its gates to UK gamers today and invites them to head to and help in the struggle to save Toontown, which is under siege from a band of uptight business robots called the Cogs.

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!
