Good

Don't Expect Wii Style Graphics

This game is a re-imagining of the SNES game Castle of Illusion that came out in 1990. It's an addictive,quest item fetching game that brings back a lot of memories. Don't be prepared to play an elaborate open world RPG. This is just simple side scrolling fun. The witch Mizrabel has been forgotten and is now stuck in Wasteland. She has begun kidnapping famous Disney characters from Peter Pan's Lost Boys to Rapunzel and even Scrooge Mcduck. She needs their heart power to turn the real world into Wasteland but with the help of Mickey and his magic paintbrush she will be stopped. The bottom screen is used to "draw" boxes,weapons and characters to help you on your journey. There is currently a free demo on the 3DS E-shop I would recommend before renting/purchasing this title.

Unlike the series this belongs to, this game is more like Sega's "Castle of Illusion" with a few Epic Mickey Elements. Of course it feels like "Castle of Illusion" as it was designed as an homage to that series. However, the painting mechanics on the bottom screen require the right amount of lighting for accurate tracings as well as little to no movement, it probably would've been better for a home console. Either way, i do recommend it.

this is a good game. the themes are usually from the movies but some of the attacks are from the games. like scrooge can help mickey out by using the(Kinda SPOILER ALERT!)POGO attack from the NES games.(and DUCKTALES REMASTERED came out less than a year later coincidence I think not.)and ALADIN will throw apples(Like in the Super Nintendo version made by CAPCOM. Interplay made the SEGA Genesis version and he used a sword.)and lastly this may just be a coincidence but clams open up when Ariel sings which I think was them referencing splash woman from mega man 9(Who was technically a reference to Little Mermaid)BYE
