Console: Sega Master System
The beloved Disney-starring Illusion series saw its final 8-bit instalment in this fairytale-inspired platformer, which began life on the Game Gear but spread to Brazilian Master Systems in 1998 thanks to persistent SMS stalwarts Tec Toy. What began with Mickey’s egress into the Castle of Illusion has by now matured into a full-blown storybook epic.
The villainous King Pete is holding a kingdom in bondage, and the valiant mouse janitor is forced to don Robin Hood garb and take to hurling bars of soap at the enemies of freedom. Bright colors and Disney favorites draw the young players in, but the promise of an alternate ending challenges hardcore Mouse enthusiasts.
