Scrooge McDuck's fortune has been stolen, and in one new iOS app - called DuckTales: Scrooge's Loot - it's up to iDevice gamers to recover the cash before it's too late. In the brand new "online treasure-hunting game," players can either work through the app's single-player story mode, or they can invite friends and partake in a multiplayer face-off. Four heroic character classes are available to choose from, and it's possible to customize characters within the app, too. Finally, multiplayer battles can take place in one of four exotic arenas: "Take the battle through ancient temples and caverns, and learn to master the different maps to gain an advantage over the competition," Disney explains in the app's release notes. The app's developer continues:
