Als Fazit lässt sich wirklich allen Achtbitern nur ans Herz legen: Kaufen! Ein Spitzenmodul, das vielleicht nicht das Genre neu erfunden hat, bei dem die teure Disney-Lizenz jedoch perfekt genutzt wurde, und eine Bereicherung für jede Spielesammlung darstellt. Auch der Replay-Faktor ist aufgrund der knuffigen Atmosphäre durchaus gegeben. Castle of Illusion fordert den Spieler zwar nicht ständig neu heraus, ist aber immer wieder hübsch anzuschauen.

Castle of Illusion sur Game Gear pourrait n’être qu’un simple clone de la version Master System, mais Sega a tenu à y apporter quelques minimes modifications qui n’en font finalement qu’une version identique à 95%. Les rares changements dans le level design ne justifient certainement pas, à eux seuls, de préférer cette version à sa grande sœur, mais le jeu reste tout aussi plaisant à parcourir que sur Master System.

Mickey Mouse : Castle of Illusion sur Game Gear n'a vraiment pas à rougir par rapport à son homologue Megadrive. Toujours aussi plaisant à parcourir, toujours aussi dépaysant, il se paye même le luxe d'être plus performant que son aîné sur certains points, comme sur celui du level design. Un jeu extraordinaire à plus d'un titre, qui mérite de figurer parmi toute ludothèque qui se respecte. Sega signe ici un très grand jeu de plates-formes.
Die Grafik dieses Jump-'n-Run-Spiels ist mit der des Master Systems identisch, doch wirkt sie auf dem Game Gear sehr unscharf. Das tut dem Spiel zwar keinen Abbruch, da es sich immer noch sehr flüssig spielt, doch irgendwie kommt dadurch nicht gar so viel Spielfreude auf. Nach wie vor gut ist der Sound, der zum Spielgeschehen paßt. Wer Fan von Mickey und Jump-‘n-Run-Games ist und ein Game Gear besitzt, der sollte das Programm eigentlich in seiner Sammlung haben.

Graphics are very colourful and nicely detailed, sound is pretty good too. Although not an orginal Game Gear title Castle of Illusion is the first title to veer away from the Master System look-a-likes. Recommended.
There are some original touches, such as the Toyland level, which scrolls from right to left (disorientating but challenging) and graphically it's all very pretty. The minus point is that Mickey Mouse is a bit wet whichever way you look at him - maybe this is an effort to have him regain some of the popularity that he's been losing to Mario over the years. Nevertheless, it comes with a wholehearted recommendation.

This game is pretty short. It’s about 30 to 40 minutes, but there is a little replayability if there are things you haven’t found during the first playthrough. Everyone should definitely check out Castle of Illusion. It is decent in price, despite not being common. Mickey Mouse may be a very vanilla character, but the game brings out some excitement that some cartoons can’t replicate. Any way you slice it, Castle of Illusion is a winner and a great game from the early start of the Game Gear. It is one to have for any Game Gear collection.

Un titolo caratterizzato da un alto livello di divertimento e da un comparto tecnico (sonoro e grafico) di prim' ordine. Peccato per la sua breve durata! Piacerà, probabilmente, a chiunque voglia immergersi in un ambiente da favola, spensierato e lontano dallo stress quotidiano.

Wo bitte ist der Unterschied? "Castle of Illusion" auf dem Game Gear ist 100prozentig identisch mit der Master-System-Version. Das ist allerdings kein Nachteil, sondern ein großes Kompliment für das putzige Geschicklichkeitsspiel.
Outstanding!! I never thought the Game Gear could faithfully duplicate the Master System, triumph, but here it is. Playing through it, I found that every last detail was retained, and even the sounds are the same! Unfortunately, Mickey Mouse is far too easy to be challenging for long.

Mickey Mouse está em apuros: a malvada bruxa Mizrabel raptou sua namorada Minie e a prendeu no Castelo das Ilusões. Mickey quer resgatar sua amada de qualquer jeito, mas para isso o pequeno herói terá de atravessar cinco mundos e ir apanhando cristais para conseguir chegar ao castelo. Ajude Mickey em sua difícil missão!

Castle of Illusion is now a familiar title with Genesis and Master System versions. Mickey is just as good on the small screen - maybe even better. Oh no!
