Become the master of your DS as you learn, perform and amaze your friends and family. The secrets of magic are now yours to behold. Step-by-step tutorials let you unlock the mystery of more than 20 tricks. Three individual modes make this game fun solo or with friends. A “special” deck of cards packaged with the game creates a fully portable magic kit. Now the fun extends beyond your Nintendo DS. Interactive tricks make the DS your magic assistant. Draw; speak; tap; instruct; and blow in to the microphone to astonish your audience. The learning curve keeps growing: unlock new tricks as you advance in skill. [Nintendo] Expand

  1. Innovative use of the DS. [Issue#22, p.82]
  2. Even though the game pulls back the curtain on some fundamental elements of performing magic, it’s still fun and even head-scratching at times.
  3. Magic Made Fun is a nicely worked out magic game which uses NDS as its medium for tricks. The game itself doesn't go very deep, but the 30 playable tricks will amaze many friends. Although the box is totally dutch, the game itself is English which might get a negative response from players. If you like magic, this game is definitely something for you.
  4. Master of Illusion is a neat way for kids to learn how to perform simple magic tricks.
  5. With tricks that'll have even the greatest magicians scratching their heads and demanding the DS for their own, Master of Illusion is a great way to add a little magic to your life.
  6. A fun and interesting use of the DS, and with enough practice and patience, can “astound and delight friends and family”, at least until the next Harry Potter movie comes out.
  7. 46
    One of the most pointless games made for the DS. The idea may sound good on paper, but performing magic tricks is really something which needs to stay in the real world. Stay away from this one, far away.

    Master of Illusion isn't a video game in the traditional sense and shouldn't be rated as such. That being said, it's fun toMaster of Illusion isn't a video game in the traditional sense and shouldn't be rated as such. That being said, it's fun to bewilder your friends with magic tricks and the tricks are easy to learn too. But the software can't be fully enjoyed without an audience to perform in front of.
    here is the bottom line. Master of Illusion is a magic kit for the DS, not a game. It's a great way to entertain your friends but never reveal the secrets behind the illusions.
