In "Castle of Illusion" you - Mickey Mouse - save your girlfriend Minnie from the evil and ugly witch Mizrabel. So your goal is as basic as it gets.
You wander through various worlds inside the Castle of Illusion (like a giant library, a magical forest or a toy world) in order to collect seven gems that will make a bridge to the witch and Minnie.

This is a 2013 reboot of the 1990 Sega Genesis classic of the same name (which I like btw).
How does it hold up, as a game in general and as a reboot?

As a game in general it is pretty good. It is mostly a 2D platformer with 3D graphics, which means that you mostly jump and run from left to right or the other way round. In special parts of the game you have use all key arrows in order to jump on platforms around you or just to run to every corner of a room or bigger platform (like in boss fights).
You need to end three acts of a level and collect diamonds and other items as well as you can (certain amounts of diamonds are needed to get access to future levels).
You defeat enemies by jumping on them or by throwing stuff at them.

So as you can see it is pretty basic and it can be fun for adult players as well as for children. The gameplay also is basic and easy to learn.
However, prepare yourself for a few frustrating moments, especially for quite tricky jumping parts (a good example: the milk shake river and cookies or the final boss fight) and for cutscenes that cannot be skipped (not even the long end credits).

As a reboot it is alright, not something like the "Ducktales" reboot that amazed and entertained me very much but it is still noticeable that the SEGA team put some work and love for details into this. This also goes for the soundtrack and the lovely voice acting (like when Mickey comments the levels from time to time).

All in all I would call "Castle of Illusion" alright. Not quite awesome - and some flaws really could have been avoided - but good enough to try out. It's definitely something for Disney/Mickey fans.

As a huge fan of the iconic mouse, I took a lot of pleasure in diving into to this nastaugic funhouse especially when its coming right off the heels of the moderately-well recieved Epic Micky Titles. The campaign contains just the right amount of platforming goodness that kept me entertained as the story unfolded itself. After playing the demo's on xbox360 and PS3 I notice the control skeam was a tad bit difficult to control. For the PC version on the other hand I am unhappy to say that this control issue is still problematic making the gameplay sometimes a chore to play through. It's ashame Mickey delivered another game which was hindered by a technical aspect. You would think a mascot as successful as Mickey Mouse, the controls should have been be tested more carefully especially with a corporation as wealthy is Disney.

this one's a toss-up for me, personally.

i beat this game in about two hours, which is ridiculously short, but i could forgive the game for that if it was memorable. it's got really charming visuals, but that's all there really is here. collecting is kinda pointless, the story is average, and the platforming and bosses feel way too simple.

overall, i'd play the original if i were you. or buy this on sale like me, because i had enough fun to justify the five or so dollars i spent here.

As a long time gamer, I had the dubious distinction of owning and completing this on both the Master System and Mega Drive versions (couldn't do it now - age gets us all!) and so was curious as to what level of remastering/reimagining this is and I was pleased to find a genuinely entertaining new game heavily inspired by the old. Everything that was great about the original, the locations, the sense of whimsy had been successfully carried across to this new version along with a fully orchestral soundtrack and a friendly sounding narrator adding the level of Disney gloss that just wasn't possible in the cartridge era. As much as I enjoyed this game however, there is a feeling of sadness when you realise that the developers where planning to do similar remakes of a lot of Sega properties from that era including Streets of Rage and Golden Axe which will alas never be as Sega shuttered ther studio. Still, if your looking for a pleasantly challenging old-school platformer with a modern look, this could be ideal.

Good platforming game for a quick speed-run completion. Takes about 90-120 minutes to complete first run ever, so definitely not a very long game. Speedrun could easily be sub 30 minutes.

The conrtols were awful and often didn't respond which meant a lot of stupid deaths and restarts. It makes it frustrating to even attempt to complete the game.

This game is best appreciated by people with fond memories of the original.

The graphics are a bit simple and the game a bit short, but it manages to strike just the right balance between love for the original and innovating upon its concepts. Good music too, most of them arrangements from the MegaDrive classic. There's some replay value in trying to get all the collectibles and messing with the time attack mode, but I don't care much for that myself.

Be warned, this game features some very corny voices. But if you're a fan of Mickey Mouse that shouldn't bother you.

This is a 2,5 hours game, replaying levels to get all secrets may get you some more hours but non-completionist will probably stay in those 2 hours.

I would recomend the game at full price if it had BOTH Castle of Ilusion AND World of Ilusion (or even allowing to play the classic version would be nice), but as it stands I can only recomend this buy on sale and if you played the game as a kid and always wanted to finish it or want to revive the memories and see the ways the upgraded the game.

Awesome! Like playing it back in the days. It feels great playing a platfomer in which the environment doesn't make sense at all. You don't feel the need to explain why there are letters "A" attacking you. LOL! What I like the most is that they stuck to the original game and upgraded it a notch in its Level Design. The only problem I had with it was the floaty controls and it isn't such a good idea to have that in a platformer. Especially when it switches from a 2D sidescroller to a 3D platformer. If you can get passed that, the game is quite fun and entertaining.

I hope they remake World of Illusion! *_*

Another remake, another review. Simple, right?
Most remakes tend to screw things up, and this one... didn't screw up too much. The graphics are good, for a Disney game, the boesses were fun to face, the levels were somewhat well designed. The only mistake; The narrator.
Seriously. I feel like a kid when listening to that guy talk, which is kinda embarrassing.

This is an absolutely beautiful remake on the 1990 Sega Classic of the same name. I used to spend hours playing this game as a kid on our Sega Console and despite the fact that I found it incredibly difficult I loved it none the less.

This remake fails to disappoint. They have rebuild it exactly like it's original down to the last pixel. The same music, the same enviroments, the same sound effects, with the only differences being a beautiful 3D enviroment, Mickey having a voice and having a Narrator to give you extra information along the way and when you get stuck.

For anyone who used to play the original back on a Sega, this should be a must have for you. The challenge of the original is still there and you won't be sorry you have it.

10/10, gorgeous!

The game is overall pretty short (storyline+all collectibles) but it is extremely fun and entertaining. It has a simple but enjoyable storyline and you can earn 3 different skins for Mickey Mouse by collecting everything in the game. It also has a time-mode in which you can do online records.

Nothing good comes from a platformer with floaty controls

Game is way to easy
Collecting is an hassle when you can't move the camera up and down
Cheap unskippable cutscenes, that were only bearable thanks to the solid narration
Boss designs and attack patterns lack creativity
Controls are floaty
Main story takes little more than 2hours to complete

A decent game, not nearly as good as I thought it would be from the youtube videos I had watched prior to buying it. The reasons being that it was very easy and extremely short. I beat it in 2 hours so it barely was worth the $3.60 I paid for it on sale. It actually probably took me about an hour and a half not including the time it took to retry parts. The only part that was even slightly challenging was the last part of the last boss fight. It took me four or five tries to get the pattern down to beat the last boss. One thing that I really liked were the graphics which are pretty good.

If you can get it even cheaper than I did, it might be worth your time. Otherwise, skip it.

Castle Of Illusion is one of those games you thought would never be remade or even thought of. It's an early nineties video game for the Sega Genesis. Most children that are into video games now weren't even born when it was released. I remember going into an A and Z video store and seeing the title always rented out, but they always had a ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ copy of paperboy, I digress. Castle Of Illusion Remake is a short sweet game that captures the sprite of the original. In terms of length it should take no more than one hour to complete, again, this hearkens back to the original 8bit/16bit days in terms of completion. The only thing with this port of the game, is that you cannot turn off fxaa, so the game has a slight blur to it, and it's not really optimized, I was getting slight frame drops on a 980ti. I bought this game for $4 bucks, and it was worth every penny. So if you are in the mood for a trip down memory lane, or you just want a cute platformer, I would highly recommend this game.

Castle of Illusion on SEGA:n ja Disneyn yhteistyön tuotos: uusi Mikki seikkailu!

Mikki ja Minni ovat eväsretkellä, kunnes paha noita-akka sieppaa Minnin ja Mikin on pelastettava tämä. Hän voi pelastaa Minnin keräämällä Rainbow Gemejä, joiden avulla voi tehdä sillan pahan ämmän torniin.

Peli ollaan toteutettu loistavasti! Pelin mapit ovat mielikuvituksellisia ja monipuolisia. Mappeihin kuuluu mm. kirjasto, kellotorni sekä karkkimaa. Siis aivan loistavan monipuolista! Mappeihin on sijoitettu pieniä timatteja, joita voi kerätä yhteensä 800, mutta en itse siihen lähde.

Graaffinen ulkoasu on hienoa! Mikki ollaan työnnetty 3D hahmona kaksiulotteisiin mappeihin, jotka myös näyttää 3D. Toki pelissä on satunnaisia hetkiä, jolloin ei ole vain kaksiulotteisuus käytössä, kuten mm. omenaa pakoon juoksemisessa tai eeppisissä pomotappeluissa! Ainoa valitettava puoli ulkoasussa on Mikki ingame-animaatioissa. Mikki näyttää keskinkertaselta puolalastomalta läskiltä, jolla on ikävä sänkyhetkiä Minnin kanssa.

Äänimaailma on toteutettu loistavasti ja kun musiikkia kuuntelee, tulee mieleen vanhat Mikki piirretyt.
Peliin ollaan saatu melkeimpä alkuperäiset Mikin ja Minnin äänet, joka on tietenkin pelkkää plussaa.

Peli on suurintaosin tosi nasta kokemus. Peli valitettavasti ollaan pelattu läpi 2 tunnissa, ja jos laskeen mukaan kaiken ekstran löytämisen: se kestää vain 3 tuntia. Peli on 13€ ja se ei ole läheskään sen arvoinen. Pelistä voisi suurintaosin pyytää 2-5€, ja itse ostinkin tämän alesta.

Old-school trickery

Disney was no stranger to the late eighties and nineties consoles back when it was Nintendo waging a console war with SEGA. Arguably two of the most memorable titles for each system were Ducktales for the NES and Castle of Illusion for the SEGA Mega Drive/Genesis. Ducktales had the edge - being more fiendishly difficult than Mickey Mouse's SEGA outing but both exuded charm and were bestsellers on either system.

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=285326866
Cut forward 25+ years to the year 2013 as both popular titles re-emerged in full HD glory for a new generation of gamers and for the first time ever - debuting on the PC. I can see that the more modern gamer will probably find the gameplay on display here a bit antiquated and Castle of Illusion will possibly hold very little appeal for them (outside of the Mickey Mouse and Disney connection) but it's clear the intention here - Castle of Illusion is a love letter to the gamer that cut his/her teeth on these kind of games in the past. While Ducktales: Remasterd is a scene by scene remake (with newly implemented graphical cut-scenes), Castle of Illusion is more of a re-imagining taking the five levels of illusion Mickey must traverse in order to save his dearly beloved, Minnie Mouse, from the clutches of the evil witch Mizrabel and giving each of them a modern spin and a completely new lick of paint. Each of these worlds, like the original, are split into two relatively short levels with the third housing a boss battle for Mickey to overcome.

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=285328277
I had great fun playing this game as a child back in the early nineties so it was pure nostalgic delight exploring these redesigned levels that pay due homage to the levels from the old SEGA classic. While I never found the game on the Mega Drive to be particularly challenging it was certainly a fun romp for my childlike sensibilities back then and this remake of Castle of Illusion fits the bill quite nicely. Most experienced platform gamers will breeze through Castle of Illusion in a jiffy but the controls are tight (except for the swimming sections where it feels like one is trying to maneuver a tank through a mouse hole) and for the most part the game plays and looks beautiful on modern systems.

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=284863991
Castle of Illusion is a simple platformer and when put under scrutiny one can see how mechanically game development has moved along in leaps and bounds - you just have to compare this title with the recently released Rayman Legends to see that Castle of Illusion is nothing more than a nostalgic time-capsule that embraces an age when games were far more simpler and innocent without all the moral grey areas that encapsulates modern gaming today.

If you have fond memories of playing through Castle of Illusion as a child, I wouldn't hesitate to encourage you to pick it up. Chances are you will probably have families and kids of your own now so this is a great way to introduce them to the kinds of games you used to play as a kid. At $14.99 it's priced just about right for the amount of adventure time held and its a great way to spend an afternoon with an old friend from the past.
