Disney Princess: My Fairytale Adventure is a 3D game where the player designs an avatar and become an apprentice to the Fairy Godmother known from Cinderella. It does not go smoothly as you accidentally tun friendly sprites into mischievous imps in the garden and they need to be changed back before they cause trouble. This is done by casting spells on them using a wand. Over the course of the game different environments are visited based on properties and characters such as Cinderella, Rapunzel, Ariel, Belle and Tiana.
Next to the exploration there are many types of mini-games. It is also possible to complete quests, dance, or participate in gardening by planting flowers or decorating your bedroom in the castle. Many customization and decoration options become available through earning gems.
