Jez plays… Castle of Illusion starring Mickey Mouse

Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse is a 1990 platform game developed by Sega and released for the Sega Mega Drive. An 8-bit version of the game was later released for the Master System and Game Gear. The game follows Mickey Mouse on a quest to save Minnie Mouse from the evil witch Mizrabel. It was the first game in Sega’s long-running Illusion video game series starring Mickey and was also a part of the second wave of games initially released for the Sega Genesis which helped seal the console’s reputation within the period until the release of Sonic the Hedgehog in 1991.

On September 9th, 2020, I began playing the 8-bit, Master System version of Castle of Illusion, completing the first three stages.

From October’s 12 Hour Stream, the second and final part of Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse for the SEGA Master System. I like this game a lot and it felt good to complete it, even if that did come out of nowhere!
