SummaryA Magical Gem
The GoodCastle of Illusion starring Mickey Mouse is a wonderful single player, platformer game. The game features incredible animation, graphics, music and sound effects. Each level, their enemies and bosses, could easily have been taken out of a Disney cartoon and icons in each level help out with points, extra lives, energy refill and various projectiles to throw. Heck, even the act of jumping on enemies, a clear homage to Super Mario Brothers, is wonderfully animated. Sega would go onto to produce more successful titles feature Disney characters
The BadCastle of Illusion starring Mickey Mouse features a damsel in distress storyline that lacks originality. I understand why this is often used as a plot device in games and it is not entirely inappropriate, but it does get recycled a bit too much. Younger or more novice gamers should take note: while the game allows you to adjust the level of difficulty a few of the later levels, on any setting, will be a challenge mainly because you cannot run.
