60 Second Game Reviews – Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse (PS3)


2013’s Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse is a remake of Sega’s 1990 Mega Drive classic and is also developed and published by Sega As in the original, Mickey must collect seven rainbow gems across several rooms in the Castle of Illusion to save Minnie from the jealous witch Mizrabel The original was a childhood favourite and its really cool seeing the gameplay and levels closely replicated in 2.5D They’ve done a great job retaining the nostalgia while expanding on it It’s arguably more accessable than the first game, for example falls won’t kill you and you can grab an extra life every time you exit to the castle The difficulty increased towards the end, but it was still nothing too challenging It can be spedrun in about an hour and a half and I was suprised by how little additional content has been added There are statues and artwork of the games bosses, a time attack mode for finished levels and three pretty underwhelming unlockable costumes It amounts to the artificial lengthening of a short game Castle of Illusion is a terrific remake. Its easy difficulty and brevity will be off putting for some It isn’t one of the absolute best Disney games, but frankly neither was the original But like that game, its charm and throwback gameplay and presentation makes it an undeniably fun platforming experience
