Your Commodore (Dec, 1985)
Despite a niggle that the game is only in Dollars, the game is excellent and well structured. Potentially a useful learning tool.
 
The Disney characters are well portrayed. The graphics are remarkable, both in appearance and in the fact that hi-res mode was not used. All graphics were created using a redefinition of most of the 255 graphics characters available on the C64. The only characters not used were letters, numbers, and some punctuation. The animated sequences were done using both sprites and characters graphics. In addition to being fun to play, there are several learning concepts that are presented in the play of the game: putting items into categories, earning and counting money, reflex coordination, and some minimal reading skills. But not so obvious are the concepts of the entire work ethic (work-buy-play cycle), financial reward and loss, and of course, always looking both ways.
