PlayStation Plus always has good stuff available for free and this week they have a gaming classic. Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse can downloaded off the PSN’s premium service for no additional cost.
I got to play this game at last year’s E3. While at its core it is still the same title I played when I was a kid, it’s also very different. A lot of the levels have been redesigned as have some of the mechanics. It can take a bit of getting used to since, while having overhauled controls, still feels like an old game.
What’s cool about this offer is that for the next two weeks if you download it you’ll get to download the Castle of Illusion: Sega Genesis Bundle which has the original game in it. It will also come with a free Mizrabel dynamic theme. This bundle will only be available until April 28.
If you’re a fan of platforming games and have PlayStation Plus then there is no reason not to download this game. Just the fact that you can also get the original Castle of Illusion with this is enough of a selling point as far as I’m concerned.
