Mickey to Donald: Magical Adventure 3
|Mickey to Donald: Magical Adventure 3|
The last game in the Magical Quest series. Never released outside of Japan (not counting its Game Boy Advance port 10 years later, as Disney's Magical Quest 3 Starring Mickey and Donald) because it was too awesome.

Debug Menu #2
A second debug menu can be accessed when debug flag 20 is set and Select is pressed. However, for this menu to function properly, SRAM must be enabled. Change 00FFD8 in the ROM from 00 to 04 to enable the appropriate amount of SRAM.
This is a basic VRAM viewer. Press Up/Down to cycle through different chunks, Left/Right to change the current palette, and X to change the palette to a default grayscale scheme. Press Select to exit.

Identifying numbers for various tilesets are visible in VRAM. Similar to The Great Circus Mystery, G before a number seems to refer to a level tileset as used on stages 1-2, 1-3, 6-2 and 7-6, and ST before a number seems to reference a boss tileset as used for the stage 7-7 King Pete boss.
Standard debug room. This is room 00 in the room select. The brown tiles scattered throughout the area don't seem to have any function, and the green lines act like vines. Interestingly, this room uses block graphics from The Great Circus Mystery!
Unused Level 4 Room
Room 59. This is a different version of the room used for the Stage 4 ending scene. Unfortunately, it doesn't work properly -- the player will be pushed back to the first screen before they get a chance to jump off the ship.
The only other difference is that the version used in the game is more compressed.
