Always having known a good thing when they see it, the folks at Disney Interactive get in on the EyeToy act in time for the festive season, and at a budget price too.

'Fantasmic' is a game where you defend your castle from the Elemental Forces by aiming spells with your hands as you move along the archway. The Elementals can shield themselves, so it's wise to cast spells when they let their guard down. If they hit your archway too many times, it will collapse, and that means the end of the game. Mickey comes and helps with repairs to the archway from time to time, if you're lucky.

'Haunted Mansion' involves taking photos of ghosts in the night. There are ghosts that exude positive energy and those that are negative in nature. The positives are easy to spot - they're the ones that glow green when you wave your hand over them: negatives glow red when touched. Before each level begins, pictures of the ghosts you need to photograph are displayed. Try to find their shrouded forms among the floating ghosts in the game proper, touch them so they glow green, and then touch both of the cameras to take their picture.

'Donald Goalie' puts you between the sticks as you try to stop Donald Duck and his team of sharpshooters scoring penalties. It's Duckburg versus Mousetown in the match of the century! Move your hands, head and body to block incoming kicks. The team with the highest score come the end of the three level challenge is, of course, the winner.

'Lilo and Stitch' has a percussive theme to it, in that players use their hands to beat the on-screen drums in the order presented. If you miss a beat, Stitch will eat one of the flowers from your life bar, and no flowers means no more drumming!

Peter Pan gets a look in with a light-hearted self-defence lesson that involves giving pirates a good slap, and there's an Aladdin game in which Jafar has abducted Jasmine and is racing away on a flying carpet. As Aladdin, you're in hot pursuit, but you have to steer your own carpet through incoming watermelons and pesky henchmen, bent on knocking you from the sky.

With a multiplayer mode that accommodates up to four players for each section, and at least three levels per featured game, Disney Move is clearly aimed at the younger end of the EyeToy market. But that doesn't mean that we - mature(?) adults one and all - didn't have a lot of fun with it!
