Disney Interactive today announced the launch of Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse on iOS devices. The game is a reimagining of the classic Sega Genesis / Mega Drive game released in 1990, and sees Mickey Mouse embarking on a quest to save Minnie Mouse from the evil witch Mizrabel.

Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse offers five different worlds, each with its own set of levels and unique enemies. An enchanted forest area, for instance, sees players dealing with angry tree trunks and spiders, while an indoor area sees players avoiding larger-than-life moving books, evil toy planes, toy soldiers and much more.

The side-scrolling platformer challenges players with collecting seven rainbow gems to create a bridge to Mizrabel’s Tower in order to rescue Minnie, and gamers will face a variety of boss battles in their attempt to collect them.

Each level contains collectibles, which, when collected in bulk, give Mickey a chance to try on new costumes. Levels can be replayed, in cases where players wish to increase their high score, or unlock secret areas that they failed to reach the first time through.

The Castle of Illusion remake was first released on PlayStation Network and Xbox Live in September. The iOS version of the game is now available to download for $9.99 on iPhone and iPad.

Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse joins another new Disney title on iOS devices, Frozen: Free Fall, based on the upcoming animated film Frozen. Check back soon to follow the game on AppData, our tracking service for mobile and social apps and developers.
