The Illusionist's Dream

Author Comments

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...

NOTICE: Anyone is free to make videos of my games. Sharing video game experiences with others is really nice. 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.


I'd like to give a 9.5

this was a great game. The animation was pretty smooth. It had an almost 3D look to the magician also. The art was great, reminding me much of the flashes I used to see here and I'm glad that this is coming back to newgrounds. I loved the idea behind it, with the transforming and all, but I feel that it was a little too short and didn't expand on the story too much. There's not much you can do with it, but i was thinking you'd explain how she died. I look forward for more of your work =D

uhmm the part where u can be a monkey i need help i cant do it some1 plz help and this is a great game.

I really liked this...

Honestly, I really liked the story. It was really touching...

Made me a bit teary eyed, and made me think of all who I had lost and made me think about my fear of death. "Death is just transformation"... I really liked that line. A lot. It made me smile a bit.

I loved alot about tihs game, really. The song, the story, the art.. All of it, I think really went well together. It's a little vague, just going from what the game tells you... But I like that about it. It just makes it easier to relate, in my opinion, and that's always a plus.

There were a few things that sorta made me frustrated, however. Like the jumping for example... That sorta made me mad.
The ending sorta bothered me to. Just.. "Wake up"... I mean, everything before that I really liked but I felt just that text was sorta a weak note to end it on. I felt more could have been done to really tie it in. In fact, that's really the only reason I rated it a 9 and not a 10...

I digress. I really liked this game, just wish it had a stronger ending.

9/10 because of minor imperfections

I loved the concept and the graphics but the game mechanics were sometimes frustrating. The frog and apes are hell to navigate and the jumping over the fires is very unreliable too. I also think you should have used the concept of transforming in all levels and made it more of a puzzle game than a jump and run. I loved those levels the most, that were easy to cross but you had to think a while to get the right combination of animals for the key and the door to reach.
