Disney Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse (also known as Castle of Illusion) is a 2.5D platformer developed by Sega Studios Australia and published by Sega on September 3-4, 2013 for the PlayStation 3 (via PlayStation Network), Xbox 360 (via Xbox Live Arcade), and PC (via Steam). Starring Disney mascot Mickey Mouse, the game is a remake of the 1990 Sega Genesis platformer of the same name.
As Mickey, players must venture through the evil Castle of Illusion to rescue Minnie Mouse from the evil witch Mizrabel, who plans to steal Minnie's beauty and popularity. To do so, he must find the seven Rainbow Gems (guarded by monstrous Gem Keepers) hidden within the magical worlds scattered throughout the castle.
The game is a 2D-plane platformer in a 3D setting, where Mickey either jumps on enemies' heads or throws various things (apples, gems, candles) at them to defeat them. During and between the levels the story is told by an unknown narrator.
Castle of Illusion features a Castle, that works as a hub world, and 6 stages that are all based on the original game. Every stage consists of two levels and a boss battle (except the last stage, which is a pure boss battle).
The levels are as follows:
- The Enchanted Forest (Boss: The Old Oak)
- Toyland (Boss: Jack in the Box)
- The Storm (Boss:The Merpeople)
- The Library (Boss: The Treat Dragon)
- The Castle (Boss:The Oaf)

The game also features a bunch of collectibles in the form of of blue gems, magic cards, Mickey statues, and Chili Peppers hidden by Donald Duck. By collecting everything the player can unlock various paintings, statues of the bosses and new costumes for Mickey.
