Console: Sega Master System
Mickey’s illusory adventures wouldn’t have made the list three times unless the series was in the habit of doing something right. Put together internally by many of Sega’s most prolific programmers for the Master System – including staff from Asterix, Sonic, and Castle of Illusion – Land of Illusion offers similar platforming action to Castle and Legend of Illusion, by now honed into a comfortable rhythm and still challenging.
DuckTales may’ve been a standout on Nintendo’s platform, but the Master System was where Mickey Mouse was most prolific. After the disappointment of Epic Mickey 2, it makes us long to see the mouse return to these glory days.
