Fun, casual platformervipe_1 | Jan. 25, 2015 | See all vipe_1's reviews »
The remake of Mickey's Castle of Illusion is a fun and light-hearted remake of the classic 1990 2D platformer. The game follows the original pretty closely, and has been redone with terrific 2.5D settings and graphics, remastered sound and new 3 dimensional areas/hub world. The game plays very well, with a polished storybook feel complete with narrator. The game offers a challenge, but is accessible to almost anyone. Levels can be completed by simply making your way across the platforms and other traps, but also offers a lot of difficult items and diamonds to find to unlock various extra content. Casual gamers, completionists, or just fans of the original two decades ago will all enjoy this remastered version of a classic; a version that honestly raises the bar for all remakes of the great games of the past.
A delight for allanticerber | Dec. 22, 2014 | See all anticerber's reviews »
I never had the pleasure of playing the original version. However when I got this it did come with it. I came to find I liked this new remake much better, and my girlfriend being a disney freak I wanted her to join in...This is probably the first video game I played with her, and went through all the fun and frustration with her. It is a little on the short side but I figure you'd expect that from a game as old as this, But a cute story to enjoy. I'd pick this up, especially while it's on sale!
A Beautiful game !!markegiani | Oct. 23, 2014 | See all markegiani's reviews »
I watched a lot of trailerz on the net before I bought it and then I was in for a treat ! This game is amazin' !!!! A simple platformer very easy to play with a lot of ground to cover and a lot of treats waiting to be found. Perfectly designed for kids and for people who like to enjoy while playing and not to be frustrated with dumb quests/puzzles. Beatiful audio/visuals with easy gameplay makes Mickey a game for everyone.
A Very Light And Fun PlatformerAzrael360 | Sept. 26, 2014 | See all Azrael360's reviews »
Visually, it's beautiful, and really nice to play. It's not hard so everyone can play it. Although it's a little short and casual, and once you're done with it, it's done. No replay value. Unless you were a fan of the original and really enjoyed it. One thing though, not long ago the game was fixed up to 30 FPS, but that was fixed in the latest update so now can go past that limit, which is a good thing for these type of games. Highly recommended for the kids (or the kids at heart).
Overall a fun classic platformerTwerpOco | June 15, 2014 | See all TwerpOco's reviews »
Great visuals, music, and story are only a small part of what makes this game amazing. Good old fashioned platforming mechanics builds the foundation of many great classics and this is no exception. Although the puzzles weren't too tough, they were most definitely amusing and creative. One downside to the game was the length. It took me about 4 hours to complete, and a good portion of it was the final boss fight. However, there are many collectables and secrets to go back and grab up. Overall, this game has fair graphics, creative boss fights, and environments that give a truly magical experience.
