In this sequel to Castle of Illusion, Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck have mysteriously teleported to an enchanted land filled with magic. Travel through five levels as either Mickey or Donald in your quest to find the individual responsible for your new surroundings: the Sorceror. Find him and you'll find your way home! Since this is a world of illusion, each character can use an enchanted cape to turn enemies into harmless objects.
Expect to ride through the skies on a magic carpet, journey through abandoned mine shafts, run from dangerous floods, and even survive a gigantic forest--where butterflies are twice the size as your character! World of Illusion allows two players to team up for simultaneous action, and offers a password after each level so you can resume progress at a later time. Don't worry, you're not alone in this land: Disney characters Daisy Duck, Goofy, Pluto, Minnie Mouse, Clarabelle Cow and Donald's three nephews all make cameos throughout the game.
