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 spiritual sequel to Castle of Illusion which was released for the Sega Mega Drive, in December 1992.
Mickey and Donald were on the stage of a performance hall, while preparing a magic act, when they suddenly have been sucked into a magical world, ruled by the Magic Master. Now they must attempt to escape while learning a few magic tricks along the way, facing unknown creatures among other dangers.
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 two-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.
