Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse

Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse is undoubtedly the best game I’ve ever played on iOS. The graphics are astonishing, musics are exceptional (use a headphone), and the gameplay is very good. I’m having so much fun playing it, it’s simply an exceptionally excellent game. A lot of love has been put in the development of this game; currently at $0.99, it’s a no-brainer, GET IT NOW!! It will comes back at $9.99 soon (even at that price, I still recommend it!)…

I have never liked the virtual gamepad used in some iOS games, but in Castle of Illusion, the virtual joystick just works. You will need good controls because the challenge is not easy. Besides, iOS 7 game controller support remains a promise unfulfilled promisses and a missed opportunity for Apple (anyone knows a good bluetooth game controller?). It’s also a real joy to play to a long, classic game, without any single one app purchase. A relief. Castle of allusion is also available on Android, but I’ve not tested it.

Like Zelda : A Link Between Worlds, the game is not just a HD remake of Castle of Illusion on Sega Genesis / Mega Drive, but a completely and reinvented game. Sega may have disappeared from hardware business, but I’m happy to see that they still have a future as games editor. And Sega and Disney seems to works nicely together (remember QuackShot?)

When I see this level of quality in iOS games, I fear for Nintendo.
