This week saw the launch of Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway: Adventure Kit, extremely delightful interactive AR experience based on the new Disney parks attraction, which was launched in March this year at Hollywood Studios in Orlando, Florida.
Games available for free through the app DisneyNow on iOS and Android , child-friendly experience allows you to control three iconic Disney characters — Mickey mouse, Minnie mouse and goofy — while you are traveling in three augmented environments inspired by the classic cartoons of Mickey mouse.
Being in these nostalgic arenas AR, you can configure your environment using a variety of vehicles, buildings and props to create your perfect circuit. Here you can use the touch control of various cartoon vehicles, such as cars and trains, around your new world; for a better view, just move the phone closer to the action. At first the controls seem a little wonky. Perhaps this is just evidence of the overall quality of the experience.
There is also a mode without the AR, which has an additional race mode at the time in which you’re fighting with Disney characters, to see who can collect the most picnic baskets. These items can be exchanged for additional facilities for your next session. In order to fully immerse players in a cartoon racing mode this time will not be available in AR.
Runaway Railway: Adventure Kit from Mickey and Minnie is now available through a free app DisneyNow for iOS and Android.
