Sorcerer's Apprentice is a game released for the Atari 2600. It features Mickey Mouse in a classic cartoon sequence from the movie Fantasia.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

The object of SORCERER'S APPRENTICE is to help Mickey prevent the cavern from flooding by stopping the falling stars that are turning into brooms. To do this you must:

  • Catch stars with the Sorcerer's magic hat that Mickey is wearing before they fall between the mountain peaks.
  • Hit stars with Mickey's magic fireballs.
  • Create empty buckets by hitting meteors with fireballs.
  • Go into THE CAVERN and stop the brooms from reaching the cavern floor.

You can play SORCERER'S APPRENTICE in THE MOUNTAIN scene, in THE CAVERN scene, or you can move Mickey back and forth between both scenes to play one magical game. When THE CAVERN is flooded, the game is over.

You score points for catching stars, hitting stars and meteors, and stopping the brooms in THE CAVERN.

There are four game speeds. Game 4, the slowest game, is a good game for young children.
