Sega Master System / Mark III / Game Gear
Walt Disney's big-eared rodent arrives, via the Mega Drive, to the Game Gear with a thud and a squeak. Guide Mickey through this sideways scrolling arcade adventure, the Castle of Illusion, to rescue Minnie from the wicked witch.
The castle itself contains many wonderfully designed rooms with often humorous animation.
Mickey himself has his own personality. Position him too close to the edge of a precipice and he will cycle his arms in an effort to regain his balance. Wait around and he'll tap his foot, and so on. There is treasure to find and food to eat.
Graphics are very colourful and nicely detailed, sound is pretty good too. Although not an original Game Gear title Castle of Illusion is the first title to veer away from the Master System look-a-likes. Recommended.
