Need to fix AUDIO

I played this game sometime last year (2015) and loved it. There were some challenges at certain parts, but doable. Controls could be better on iPhone. I know there's a PC version, but I've never played it so I can't compare- I'm assuming that the PC controls are better to handle. I downloaded this game again partly because I was bored and I wanted to replay it.

Here we are now a year later and there's no music and I'm having issues with the narration. Only the opening part has music, but when I'm playing the game, narration gets cut off all the time with no music. The only sounds I have are the noises Mickey makes and other character sounds. I wish they would fix/update it cause it's not as fun playing without the soundtrack- the music fit well with the game. Once they update it, everything might be good. For now, I'll have to do 3 stars until they fix it.

Castle Starring Mickey and Minnie and that Ol' Which

I purchased this game when it first came out by Sega Genisis back in the Early 90's. Thought it was so cool when it was only 16 bit. Now this game is more incredible. The graphics are spectacular. I could never have imagined this game as it is now way back when it first came out. It is so worth purchasing on your iPad Air. I was very angry because I purchased it when I had the iPad 2 and managed to get it to download. When Apple did an software update the game went away and I couldnû't get it to download again. Even though I paid $9.99, played and beat the game. Apple refused to fix the problem and I had to purchase the iPad Air to have it download again. It is so worth owning and if you too purchase the game I couldn't imagine anyone regretting the cost because you will have hours of entertaining fun with this beautiful game. Enjoy!!

Best Remake of a classic Genesis game

This is one of a few iOS games that I have ever completed.
Disney's Castle of Illusion takes me down memory lane as it is the first Sega Genesis game I ever purchased.
At first, I was somewhat disappointed that this version has a whole new soundtrack and narration, as I was hoping to get that nostalgic feel. However, after completing the game and looking around in the options I realized that there was an option for the classic soundtrack. Perfect!
Castle of Illusion is a true side scrolling adventure reimagined in a '3-D' world.
The graphic are beautiful, perhaps even stunning.
The levels are challenging sometimes frustrating.
The game mechanics and controls take some getting used to but, in my opinion, it adds to the challenge, rather than take away from the fun factor (After all I was able complete it in only a few days).
As someone who is no longer an avid gamer I think SEGA did a remarkable job. I am thrilled that I could play a game that I played as a child and I hope to see many more classics reimagined though I doubt I'd have the time to play them all as I did when I was a kid, but I never would have imagined that I would have had the time and dedication to complete this challenging game either. Thanks SEGA.
