The Disney license has been used in countless games over the years, with some classic platformers like Lion King and Aladdin being offered up as a result. Cold Shadow is perhaps not quite up to the standards of these superb efforts but it's a surprisingly enjoyable effort that does a good job of utilizing its grumpy star. This one finds him in his guise as the Maui Mallard, a tough detective, and he's on the trail of a lost idol, and which takes him into some supremely creepy environments, and you'll be facing off against plenty of voodoo-style bad guys. Most of the game is a traditional side scrolling platformer, but there are some interesting gameplay mechanics here which mix things up a bit. You can switch between the Maui Mallard and Ninja Maui, which gives you access to different weapons and abilities, including a close combat staff and the ability to jump off walls, and which makes the gameplay subtly different depending on how you play as. Right from the start, Cold Shadow grabs your attention with its typically detailed and colorful visuals, which capture the spirit of the Disney cartoons and which lend the game much of its personality. The game itself is surprisingly clever and enjoyable too, with some very intricate level design, some slick bad guys and plenty of top notch platforming fun. The ability to switch between characters is a neat touch, giving the game some variety and adding to the challenge, as you need to get used to how each one feels. Although this might be the best known Disney license, it's definitely worth a look whether you're a fan or not.
