Castle of Illusion Hands-On Video

We’re still working on our review, but we’ve captured video of the first two levels of Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse. It’s the exact same game as the downloadable title that hit the Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network, and PCs in September. You can buy it here for $9.99.

The main thing I was worried about was how the controls would hold up on the touchscreen, since Mickey is somewhat tough to control in the console versions. I can report that the controls are no better on iOS, but they’re not much worse than on the other systems, either. You’ll get used to them after a level or two, and then you’ll just enjoy running around in a great-looking 2D/3D Disney game.

We’ll have a full review up early next week, but in the meantime you can consider this a safe buy.
