    All said, Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse for mobile was a very pleasant surprise. It’s not perfect, but it comes close enough, and may even be a little better than its console brethren in some regards.

It'sThis is a great game to play with your kid, or just purchase if you like Mickey Mouse. The art, story, voice, and difficulty are great. It's all well done and you can't just fly through it. You'll likely die several times on each level. It's not the longest game but I played it with my daughter and it was a lot of fun. I would compare the difficulty to a game like Sonic, but with better artwork. I can't think of any reason to rank it down I'm not grading it against something like Bioshock it's just a 10 for what it is. Full Review »

Its a fantastic remake of the classic Sega Genesis/Mega Drive title. The only problem is that despite all the thought and hard work put into it, the controls are a little clumsy. The game has a transparent controller layout overlapped on the display but it isn't accurate and doesn't always work well. If you are really itching for this classic title and you have the option, play it on a console instead as it works much better with a hand held controller. Full Review »
