Editorial Reviews

Baf's Guide

A mixed bag. On one hand, there are rather many examples of pretty nice characterisation scattered all over the game; on the other hand, the story makes not too much sense, and the puzzles are nearly impossible.
--Valentine Kopteltsev

Magic is a somewhat dull and misleading title. Almost Magic is a bit more apt. Play it for the amusing in-jokes and chuckles, but donít expect much more. (by Nate Dovel)

Novelty Enjoyed, November 27, 2009
by Ziixxxitria (California)

I enjoyed the magic trick concept, but I found it confusing in practice as to where and when to apply it. The game is humorous, but the motivations of the character (and mine by extension) were unclear at best. I found it worth playing, at least for the novelty of the unique mechanic.

A magician vs rabbit game with overly ambitious mechanic, June 26, 2019

This reminds me of a John Evans game. John Evans used to write games that had these absolutely crazy mechanics, like teleporting anything in the game to you or being able to wish for anything.

This game revolves around the mechanic of comparing, where you find things that are similar and say COMPARE [THING] TO [THING], when the first becomes the second. Or something. Not a single time it appeared in the walkthrough did it make sense to me.

The story is kind of odd, too, a bunch of rabbits on a rampage. But it was overall descriptive and fairly fun.
