McDonald's Treasure Land Adventure is a video released for the Sega Genesis in 1993 for Europe and Japan and 1994 for the U.S. The game was developed by Treasure and published by Sega. The game is based off the Mcdonald's fast food chain and its McDonaldland characters, Ronald McDonald, Grimace, Birdie the Early Bird, and the Hamburglar.


Ronald McDonald finds a piece of a treasure map in the Magical Forest and decides to find the rest of the pieces, unaware that three villains already have the other pieces and that the treasure is heavily guarded.

Why It Rocks

  1. Simple easy to learn controls
  2. Fluent and smooth controls necessary in a platform game
  3. Bright and colorful graphics
  4. Impressive soundtrack
  5. At one point during Magical Town, the second level, you have to platform jump over dancing ballerinas. The music that plays during this part is Act II, number 10 of Swan Lake, which is famous for also being the opening theme of the 1931 adaption of Dracula with Bela Lugosi.
  6. Numerous power-ups that increase your overall health and upgrades Ronald's magic and can even save Ronald if he falls into a pit
  7. Ronald's health is indicated by magic red gems. Not only do they act as health, but they can be used by the other McDonaldland characters to progress through the game and help make the bosses vulnerable to Ronald's magic
  8. Flowers act as extra energy reserves for Ronald. If he has three white flowers when he gets hit, the flowers will become a red gem. Two golden flowers do the same thing
  9. Since Ronald needs to give red gems to make bosses vulnerable, enemies appear on the screen which can give health when defeated
  10. A shop in the game provides Ronald with all the power-ups the game has to offer
  11. A Tetris style mini-game also offers Ronald with power-ups if he can match three power-ups three times
  12. Ronald's scarf can be used to access higher areas
  13. Though the game is designed with kids in mind, it has an expert setting for more skilled players
  14. Has most of the McDonaldland characters, which can allow older gamers to relive some nostalgic memories.

Bad Qualities

  1. Weak story!
  2. Terrible ending!
  3. Way too easy even on expert setting!


The game has a 3.69 on GameFAQs.  Mike Matei reviewed the game on Cinemassacre and praised the bright, colorful graphics, the fluent control, the simple control scheme and the music.  He did however criticize the poor story and low replay value.
