Once upon a time there was a great magical performer who entertained crowds with his tricks and illusions.

But when the one he loved died, he stopped performing and lost the will to live...

...until one night he had a dream...

It gives me some exposure while the people who make the videos get something back in return. I fully support the monetisation of any video you make containing footage from my games. As long as you don’t claim to be the creator of my games, it’s all good! Throwing my name, SeethingSwarm, as the creator into the description or into the video itself is also always appreciated.

The controls are a little glitchy, which makes the need for pixel-perfect jumps and other maneuvers a real problem. Every time the man takes off his hat, he reminds me of Johnny Depp. I managed to make it through the entire thing, and, when looking back on it as a whole, it doesn't seem cohesive. First, she's talking about how she's lingering there, then she tells him he needs to let go, then she says he needs to face his own problems, and then it's take a leap of faith and wake up. The last step sorta comes out of nowhere. Also, the A and S keys don't really need to be different, as they're never both usable at the same time.

I enjoyed playing the game and especially liked how you integrated the story text into the levels itself. I love the transform ability that is key to the game play in the flash. I wish that I could stretch out the game to better see the environment. I like the color pallet that you selected in the game. The use of using triple layers really brings depth into the game and makes it feel bigger than a 2D scroll. My feedback would be that the movement as the illusionist is a bit clunkier than any of the other transformations. There wasn't as much "grace" or precision. The last thing is that the music chosen and the sounds added were very much in line with the feel of the game EXCEPT for the sound made during the transformation. Other than that I hope you expand on this platform and come up with a sequel.
