A great way to balance out the news of a Temple Run knock off is a… Totally unexpected complete iOS remake of the classic Sega Genesis Disney game Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse- A game that was basically a required purchase for anyone who was a kid during the prime time of the Sega Genesis.


This seems to be a port of the PS3/Xbox 360 remake of the game, which is rocking a 72 on Metacritic with some reviews that really love it and others who dinged it for platforming difficulty and the relatively short play time. We're going to be spending more time with the iOS version to see how the controls translate over, so stay tuned for a full review in the not too distant future.

In the meantime, check out the thread in our forums where first impressions are rolling in.

    Wow. This was a crazy hard game when I played it on my Genesis. I'd have to hear how the controls are before I plunked down my money.

      Good controls, easy game, very easy.

    10 bucks though? They must be tripping

      10 bucks and no IAP ? What is your problem?
      I gladly pay 10 bucks for a game without iap and ad's because those are the two things that are sickening the app store at the moment.

        U guys are teh bomb! I'm buying it to simply support a great idea. Cause if you get enough of these idiots saying no the game will flop and the devs will say screw premium. People got too spoiled with cheap ass games when they weren't that huge. Games are now on the level of Some older console games... What did you pay for a ps1 game? 59.99??? Why on earth would you bitch about 9.99 for any premium game. Still much cheaper. Someone around here has got have bought this game for genesis or game gear.... How much was it for that?

        Why do you think the new madden sucks so much dick? I bet you can't even cover the license fee at 4.99 a game so they had to go f2p. Imagine if they asked a fair value? Like 19.99???? Would you buy it? God no! On console? Yes for three times that! Catch where I'm going with this one? F2P sucks but it's no ones fault but our own. :/. Devs need to make money. How much does a developer cost an hour? You can bet it just wasn't one guy making Madden.

      What's wrong with you? No IAP and no ads! This is how most apps should cost. Forget the freemium and greedy money hogs.

      • deepblueocean84

        I third this too! I rather pay the 9.99 to snuff out the IAP hogs.

    It’s an OK game, really hard one and touch controls don’t make it easier. But the port seems totally good, graphics seem to be the same and there are different control schemes. Never would have thought that it’ll be ported.

    Funny game, but easy
