As we all know the Disney after school line up was great so they attempted to recreate it with titles on the NES.
Baloo started his run today, December 12th, but in 1991. This game wasn’t as popular as say, DuckTales, but it was still a total blast. I played this and Bonk on my TurboGrafx more than any others.
“Based on the Disney cartoon Talespin. Baloo’s airline cargo company, Higher for Hire, makes deliveries all around the world. The air pirates, lead by the daring Don Karnage, have increased their attacks against air travel. In order to foil the plans of the pirates, Baloo trades in his normal plane for a “Mini Sea Duck”, designed to fly more maneuverable. To get his cargo delivered on time, Baloo must fly over many dangerous areas, and also pick up any cargo stolen or scattered by the air pirates. Eventually, the fortress of the air pirates themselves must be destroyed for air travel to remain safe and profitable.
Talespin is a side-scrolling shooter, moving left to right across the screen. The Mini-Seaduck can fire projectiles and switch direction, flying right-to-left while upside-down. The money you make from recovery of these cargo items can be used to purchase upgrades at the end of each level from Wildcat, the mechanic. Many strange boss creatures and devices will guard the final areas of most levels.”
