The Portable Gamer writes: "Is Castle of Magic worth playing? If you're looking for a fun platformer on your device, then definitely. The game itself is plenty of fun and a solid package in terms of the content presented, it's just the controls that are a problem. If you can't stand iPhone platformers because of virtual d-pad controls, then you probably wouldn't enjoy Castle of Magic. If not, then you could do much worse than to check out this game, as there is a fun game there, it'll just be the interface that troubles you. This game would be perfect for DSi and for the PSP Go, Gameloft…just saying".
