Twice the power, half the fun
19 September 2013 | by (The Penumbra) – See all my reviews

Having played my way through the Master System AND the Mega Drive versions of this game back in the day (both were rather different) I can confirm that the 8-Bit Master System incarnation is somehow better than its 16-Bit sibling. The MS version was based more on exploring and secrets with some Super Mario-style gameplay with the MD version was just a straight, simple, and short platformer.

Both feature Mickey venturing into said castle to rescue Minnie from the evil with Mizrabel and similarly-themed levels, but virtually everything beyond that point is different. The MS version actually feels like you're exploring a castle while the MD version feels more disconnected.

I've always preferred the sequel, World of Illusion more, but CoI is a fine game that deserves its regard as a classic, however fleeting.

Graphic B Sound B Gameplay B- Lasting Appeal C+
