“Illusion” is about as family friendly as a game can be. Not only is the content appropriate for all age levels, but it’s also a game almost as enjoyable to watch as it is to play. In most cases, enemies simply disappear when you land on their head, and suggestive themes and questionable language are non-factors in this E-for-everyone adventure.
If you’re in the mood for a classic, side-scrolling adventure, with little time to invest, “Castle of Illusion” is an attractive option. It’s not ready to compete with content-rich offerings like “Rayman Legends,” but then again, at a quarter of the price, that was never its intention.
Beautiful, whimsical and a shining example to other developers looking to restore archived titles, “Illusion” is definitely worth the price of admission.
