World of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck, known as World of Illusion: Fushigi na Magic Box or I Love Mickey and Donald: Fushigi na Magic Box (アイラブミッキー&ドナルド ふしぎなマジックボックス) in Japan, is a "sequel" to Castle of Illusion. It was and was released for the Sega Mega Drive in December 1992.

Both characters have been sucked into a magical world while preparing a magic act, and they must attempt to escape while learning a few magic tricks along the way.


Like its prequel, World of Illusion is a platform game. Player one controls Mickey Mouse, while player two controls Donald Duck, both of whom can be on screen simultaneously. World of Illusion was built primarily for two player co-op, though both Mickey and Donald can be played separately and each have their own slightly different routes through the game. In 2 player mode, some puzzles require cooperative action to be solved, e.g. pulling Donald through a hole, or jumping in tandem to move a mine cart. A charges in combination with directional keys, and is used for cooperative actions, B attacks using a magic sheet and C jumps. Down+C enters a crawl which lasts until C is released.

The ability to jump on certain enemies and throw objects is not carried through from Castle of Illusion, although several similar level themes are explored across the five rounds. Likewise there is virtually no connection to the Sega Game Gear titles Land of Illusion and Legend of Illusion which emerged in the years which followed, although all feature Mickey Mouse running and jumping in similar worlds.



World of Illusion was developed by the newly named Illusion Shot Pictures, who had previously produced Quackshot and Castle of Illusion.
