Waiting for Newgrounds to confirm this...

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...

This game had an excellent meaning in it. The artwork was good and the graphics were great. The jumping ability was a burden though. In the last level I found myself cursing at the inabililty to correctly jump over the many piles of fire, but I'll accept that as "the difficulty in overcoming inner demons". And personally I was hoping that changing into the fox could help in some way, but I guess that the fox can only pose a threat the the other creatures you can turn into (feel free to correct me on that if I'm wrong).

Altogether, I enjoyed the "simple yet deep" meaning in this game. I rate this 4/5 and 8/10.

I like the idea I can honestly say I have not seen it before. Well except from donkey kong country from the DS and the gameboy advanced era. Though it is nice to see the ability to take an animals form and changing really is nice to see again. I like it all round though the puzzles could be a bit more difficult . Though I do give you kudos on this idea.

Good... but could be just a little better

I like it. I don't really understand people who say this game is insanely hard. I've missed just a few times. It's actually one of the easiest games because, I think, author wanted to focus on story. The only thing that game should be longer, maybe. And pause beetween last replic and logo appearance should be longer, too. Because this logo and sound hanged me out of story, I've lost it. So please, next time do credits or something to separate game and sponsor's ads.

It was an ok game

The concept was nice and "cute" but the controls were a bit off and it made the game frustrating.
