Master of Illusion
I bought this game because I love magic. The game is good, it teaches you great tricks and tips. The bad thing is that it has very few tricks, if they come with a new one I would have at least 40 tricks. Another thing is that in order to unlock tricks you have to level up by gaining points while doing other tricks, there is a limit of 100 points a day, which makes the game long and sometimes boring. Another is most of the tricks are based on the same theory which makes tricks feel always the same and when (or if) your audience figures out that trick they will almost automatically figure out the next, and then the next, and then the next. The free cards that come with the game are great they fool EVERYONE and make you feel like an amazing magician (which you might be after you play this game). Overall 6/10. I like it, but I would have made it differently.
The ds is magical.
When I got this game I was pretty excited how it could teach you magic. Especially since it has its own "special" deck of cards to perform tricks outside the ds. The challenge is basically practicing the trick till you get it since the ds teaches you how step by step. The graphics are decent showing like a waving wand and disappearing stuff. The length is a downside since there are only around 20 tricks to perform, but you unlock new ones by earning points and you can only earn a certain amount of points a day. So it will take you around 5 days to unlock all tricks, not including extras which there are a few of like tips and little minigames that help you focus like one game which is like solitaire and one where you count seconds to help you with your tricks. So don't change the date on your ds to unlock everything or you will regret it. The story is well no story except you walk into a magic shop and want to be a magician, thats it. The controls are very innovative like shuffling a deck of cards blowing into the microphone and everything. The interfacae is great, everything you need is in order and easy to find, although it can get confusing differentiating between solo magic and magic show which are the same. Only difference is that magic show requires you to help the ds with the trick while solo has you as the participant, but you can use both to show your friends like on solo just hold it and let them be the participant. The music is also good too, playing jazz like music and has great voice overs for tricks where the ds gueses your card outloud. So if your a person who likes to learn magic or if you want to show off to your friends this is for you.
just doesn't know
I mean this game could be decent. I mean, if you are into magic, i guess it could show you some new tricks. However, i do think this game will be very short. I mean how many tricks can they put in there. I am sure it will get very boring after about the first day playing. I say, try it if you are into magic.
