Product Description

The storyline will feature a variety of new and returning characters that will further immerse players in Disney’s rich history while adversaries familiar and new will challenge players.

Disney Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion is an Action-Adventure Platformer, exclusively for play on Nintendo 3DS. The game is a companion release to the simultaneously released Disney Epic Mickey 2: the Power of Two, and a nod to Sega's classic Illusion game series from the 1990's, that also featured Mickey Mouse. Features include a special interactive drawing and painting function, the core Disney Epic Mickey paint and thinner gameplay mechanic, Nintendo 3DS touchscreen functionality, familiar Disney villains and bosses, and Disney universe themed game levels and environments.

Wield the Power of the Brush with Your 3DS

Join Mickey and Oswald the Lucky Rabbit in an epic battle to save the magical world of Wasteland and change it forever. A castle ruled by a evil witch has appeared in the Wasteland. Within the castle, characters of the Disney universe, including the beloved Minnie Mouse, are in danger of disappearing forever.

In this side-scrolling gameworld, players must utilize both their platforming skills, and their paint and erase abilities to alter the world around them if they hope to save the world and their friends. The touchscreen of the 3DS allows for the tracing and illustration of a variety of objects. The best of renditions will allow objects to be used against enemies, while those less accurate could also be a hazard to all in-game, including Mickey and his friends.

Key Game Features

  • Disney Epic Mickey: Power Of Illusion offers a special drawing and painting function that will allow players to create an interactive world by using the stylus to draw objects in the bottom screen that magically transform into classic Disney-style 2D illustrations. Utilizing the game's unparalleled dual screen integration, players will then move their creations to the top screen where they are further transformed into beautiful, fully realized objects that pop off the screen in stunning 3D.
  • Players will utilize the core Disney Epic Mickey gameplay mechanic of paint and thinner while playing as Mickey Mouse in an attempt to save classic Disney Toon characters.
  • Players will engage in epic boss battles with familiar Disney villains using attacks involving the power of illusions to surprise players.
  • Players will adventure through game levels based on animated Disney films such as Peter Pan and Aladdin, as well as interact with beloved Disney characters.
  • In between adventures, players can develop their own fortress by taking a small fort and expanding it into a thriving castle.

I'm a lifelong Mickey Mouse fan (who grew up watching the Mickey Mouse Club in the 70s!), so this game was a "must have" for me.
So is it a good game? In short: absolutely!
Is it like Castle of Illusion for Sega Genesis? Sort of.
Is it good for all ages? I'd say maybe 6 or 7 and up?

So here is the long version of my review:
The game starts out with hoards of long, cumbersome dialogue that seems to go on forever. That will practically put you to sleep. But be patient because beyond that, the game starts right off into platform action and is quite fun. The funny thing is, I am NOT a platform game player - I do not like or buy them except on rare occasions. But this game, being Mickey Mouse, drew me in, and I'm very glad it did.
It's difficulty so far (I have made it a couple worlds into the game), is not too hard for me. But there's some areas that might cause frustration for others. My 30 year old platform game loving sister even got stuck at one point. It really comes down to a matter of patience, paying attention to instructions given throughout the game, and your problem solving skills.
For those who played/enjoyed the original Castle of Illusion game, this will not be a complex game for them. This game is actually easier, IMO. There are certain types of jumps you have to perform on top of enemies to get to higher platforms which requires perfect timing, and that is one area that I think very young children might have an issue with. Aside from that, the game is a lot of fun all around. I like that there is some problem solving involved to advance through certain areas.

I was really looking forward to playing this game due to nostalgia I've had for Castle of Illusion, but now that I've regrettably finished it, I can't recommend it to anyone.

The gameplay is good. The platforming and bouncing off of enemies feels enjoyable (similar to CoI's, though I want this to stand on its own merits), and a lot of the enemy and character movements are very well animated. Despite the lack of enemy variety, it would honestly be a fairly fun (though short) game to play through if the platforming and enemies were the only gameplay mechanics. However, since this is "Epic Mickey", paint mechanics are a primary focus of the game, much to its detriment.

Every obstacle in the game is in one or two forms - either an object is missing from the world that you have to paint in, or an object is impeding progress that you will need to use thinner to remove from the world - and there are a lot of these obstacles. Even if you were to ignore the optional areas and collectibles only attainable via painting/thinning, you will still find yourself spending about a quarter of your time doing this. You will be forced to trace the crude outlines of the same very few unrelated shapes over and over again for the sake of progression, always interrupting you from doing the actually decent platforming the game has.

Additionally, you will be tasked with mind-numbingly boring fetch quests for the various Disney characters you meet. This will involve re-visiting a stage multiple times with slightly different enemy placement for menial rewards. As a completionist, I generally enjoy trying to get and see everything a game has to offer.

Before beginning, I'd like to say I am writing this review as a 25 year old man.

I received a 3DS for Christmas from my girlfriend's mom and downloaded the demo from the Nintendo E-shop. Like most old school Disney gamers I hoped it would be similar to Castle of Illusion. Thankfully, that is basically what I found. I instantly made the purchase and was so impressed I had to share!

What first caught my attention was the music. This game's soundtrack is phenomenal! I want to compare it to Tomba! only because it's whimsical yet cartoony nature are equally infectious. It definitely gets you humming along.

The paintbrush feature that is the trademark of the Epis Mickey franchise is integrated perfectly into this 2D platformer. The painting or erasing of obstacles is all done on the touch pad and it works very well. The game grades you on how well and how quickly you finish pictures, but there's no great penalty for not doing well, so even young children shouldn't have too hard of a time with it.

The story is another solid aspect of this game that really keeps the supporting cast of the Disney Universe in mind while playing and replaying through each level. Each character you find, old and new, is given a room in the castle which is upgraded as you complete tasks for them. Items they need are typically scattered through past levels so the game encourages replay in that respect. What I found was that each time I went through a level for such an item I discovered a new platform or new area with a decent reward that made it worth exploring further.

All in all, I love this game. I have no gripes. None. This is not a complicated game. It's rarely challenging. It is simply fun. I may not be an experienced 3DS owner, but I do know an enjoyable experience.
