Goofy's Hysterical History Tour is a platform game starring Disney's Goofy released exclusively for the Sega Mega Drive in North America. During development it was known simply as Goofy or Walt Disney's Goofy.

Story

Goofy finally finds a job that he likes at the Ludwig von Drake History Museum. He turns into a great janitorial worker, but rival janitor Pete is out to get him fired by sabotaging the exhibits. Goofy must recover the missing pieces of the exhibits, defeat Pete, and save his job before the curator comes in tomorrow. With his invention, the Extend-O-Hand, which he created to help with his custodial duties, Goofy must travel through time in order to complete his mission.

Gameplay

The game is a platform game played as Goofy. Stages consist of multiple levels, and the goal of each level is to make it to the end. At the end of each stage, Goofy fights Pete. Goofy walks with Left and Right, crouches with Down, and jumps with C. He uses his Extend-O-Hand gadget with B. The Extend-O-Hand works as a weapon for defeating enemies. Some enemies can also be defeated by jumping on them. The Extend-O-Hand can also be used to grab and swing from certain blocks. Many of the platforming challenges in the game are designed around this mechanic. The Extend-O-Hand can be used while crouching or jumping and can be aimed with the D-pad. Goofy can find different Extend-O-Hand attachments through the game, which are switched with A. These additional attachments are limited use and only last for the current level. Some of them help Goofy attack enemies, but some of them enhance his movement.

Goofy has five health points, depicted as goobers in the status bar. He loses a health point when he touches an enemy or a hazard. He loses a try when he runs out of health points or falls down a bottomless pit (including deep water); the number of tries he has remaining can be viewed by pausing the game with  START . The game ends if he runs out of tries. The player receives an extra try from collecting 50 balloons, earning 50,000 points, or finding one of Goofy's pals in a level.

Extend-O-Hand Attachments

White Glove
This is the standard attachment. It has unlimited uses and is available at the start of every level. It can attack foes and swing from yellow Goof Cubes. It can be aimed in five directions with the D-pad.

Goofball Glove
This attachment lets Goofy throw Goofballs at enemies. It is his only projectile attack. Goofballs can be found scattered throughout the levels.

Boxing Glove
This attachment does more damage to enemies. It works similarly to the White Glove but cannot be used to swing from blocks. It has limited uses; the game only subtracts a use if the glove makes contact with an enemy.

Propeller
This attachment allows Goofy to fly for a limited time. It has limited uses; the more propellers Goofy finds, the longer he can stay airborne.

Goof Cubes

These are blocks that appear during platforming.

Blue Goof Cubes
These are the most common cubes and have multiple behaviors. Most are simple platforms that Goofy can walk on, but some release items when hit with the Extend-O-Hand and some can be moved or explode from hitting them.

Yellow Goof Cubes
Goofy can swing from these cubes using the Extend-O-Hand with the standard White Glove attachment. He extends the Extend-O-Hand toward the cube with B and attaches to it if he hits it. He stays attached to the cube as long as B is held down. If he is directly below the cube, he can pull himself up to the top of it with Up.

Temporary Goof Cubes
These cubes act as temporary platforms, which disappear after Goofy steps on them.

Items

Items are obtained by touching them with Goofy or by grabbing them with the Extend-O-Hand.
