Review: World of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck

Monday, February 2nd, 2015



1990’s Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse was an early hit for the Mega Drive. The SEGA-developed platformer was an excellent little game full of beautiful scenarios, smart level design and tight controls and it was gently dipped in that lovely, Disney goo that makes the experience all the more magical. A sequel was inevitable and the next two years saw Castle of Illusion making its way to Master System and Game Gear. An original sequel for the 8 bit consoles came in the form of Land of Illusion and then things came full circle with another Mega Drive game in the form of World of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck (that title is quite a mouthful).

Epic Mickey 2 3DS is a Sequel to Castle of Illusion

Wednesday, March 28th, 2012

Remember Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse for the Mega Drive? Remember how amazing it was? Well who would’ve guessed that it would get a sequel 22 years later, but that’s exactly what is happening!

The upcoming release of Epic Mickey 2 on 3DS will not follow the same path as its’ console brethren; the developers have seen fit to make it an entirely different game featuring the plucky mouse that follows directly after the events of Castle of Illusion.

Not only that but it looks very promising! Click here to see the first screenshots of the game in action.

Obviously SEGA won’t be publishing Epic Mickey 2 as Disney now publishes its’ own Mickey games, but this should be of interest to anyone who has fond memories of the original Mega Drive game.
