Mickey's Space Adventure is a graphic adventure computer game for a number of computer platforms. It was created by Al Lowe and released by Sierra On-Line in 1984. It features the Disney characters Mickey Mouse and Pluto, with an optional cameo by Minnie. It was the first computer game to feature Mickey Mouse, and the first videogame to feature Mickey Mouse beyond LCD Game and Watch games, predating his console debut in Mickey Mousecapade.
While out walking Pluto, Mickey Mouse stumbles upon a spaceship. Investigating the inside, he is briefed by the ship's computer named XL30, who explains that the ship is from the planet Oron in the Alpha Centauri star system. 75 Earth-years ago, an interplanetary thief stole a precious crystal that contains all of their recorded history, which he split into nine pieces and hid throughout Earth's solar system. The thief was caught, but the crystal pieces are still missing, and can only be reassembled in a certain order. XL30 asks Mickey to search the 9 planets (or certain moons of planets) for the pieces of the crystal.
Development History Edit
Written in 1984 by Roberta Williams, the game was a joint project with Disney prior to their collaboration on Black Cauldron. The game was intended for children. While there were several similar games featuring Disney characters, Mickey's Space Adventure is not considered part of a larger series. The PC version was on two 360 KB 5¼" floppy disks.
