57 mins - Published Wed, May 15, 2013 by Anthony Hobday, Jack Marshall, James MacFadyen and Lysanne Fisher

Welcome to episode twenty-five of Retrograde, where this week the team don their Disney tourist outfits and play World of Illusion starring Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck.

This week, the Retrograde team sit down to play a game starring arguably the most recognisable character ever created; Mickey Mouse. The Mega-Drive/Genesis exclusive World of Illusion is considered one of the jewels in the crown of Sega’s back catalogue, so what better a game for the Retrograde team to destroy to pieces?

Join me; Jack Marshall and my co-hosts Lysanne FisherAnthony Hobday, and James MacFadyen as we attempt to draw ourselves out of the magical paper bag that is World of Illusion.

While you’re here, why not head over to iTunes and pop a lovely review down for Retrograde? We’ll even send you a free Limited Edition Retrograde Badge! Also remember to follow us on Twitter and Facebook.

That’s all folks! … wait, that’s Warner Bros. Nailed it.
