Have a seat, children… Now, I know you thought Mickey, Ariel and Pinocchio would last forever, but the harsh reality of gaming is that all characters must eventually die. Often it seems like God is being cruel, yet it’s a fact that anything with a health bar will eventually perish.
Oh, Mickey games sometimes call remaining lives “Tries” and most of the female characters simply disappear or hard cut to a Continue screen, but I assure you not even Goofy can escape death’s icy embrace. Here, have look at some of our favorite kill screens - Don’t try and look away! This is a good thing.
