The level of polish on this is crazy, like the finger wag timed to the music or the animation when you try to walk off the platform. And thank you for giving the option to continue, because it got pretty difficult.

Absolutely love it.

ToyCrab summed up my thoughts exactly. This game is super endearing!

P#49237 2018-02-12 20:53 ( Edited 2018-02-13 01:53)

Everything about this is good!

P#49239 2018-02-12 22:25 ( Edited 2018-02-13 03:25)

Awesome, I lost when the green guy showed up

P#49251 2018-02-13 11:06 ( Edited 2018-02-13 16:06)

This really is an accomplished cart. Lovely feel to it and great graphics and flow.

Just echoing everyone else's praise here.
This game is SO good!! :D


  • It is SO addictive and polished that it could easily have been a commercial 8-bit game (still can!)
  • The difficulty ramping is perfect - I crapped my pants when the "mirror" levels happened
    (I was like "REALLY?!")
  • The magician tricks are so well animated & timed - they're perfect.
  • The music is great.
  • I love the font on the title/end screen as well.
  • The way you allow players to continue is just right
    (there is NO way I would've completed it without that lifeline!)


  • None that I can see.

One of the best #Pico8 games I've ever played. Huge congrats! :D

Just getting around to playing this other recent releases...spectacular! Love the concept and the feeling coming across is wonderful. Everything is solid from concept to execution.

It's obvious you put a ton of thought into this considering all the details. Certainly worthy of a sequel, don't you think? "Just one MORE boss"...

P#49627 2018-02-24 22:18 ( Edited 2018-02-25 03:18)

Fantastic! As everyone's said, the animations are amazing. The way each new section adds constraints that force you to learn how to deal with something you think you've already figured out... it's really impressive! And the way you re-used and combined mechanics to keep new challenges coming was great.

Also for some reason my brain wants me to be controlling the left bloop at all times... even after restarting the last hard section over and over again! Finally got it, though. 21:17 on my first hard play through.

P#49683 2018-02-25 21:53 ( Edited 2018-02-26 02:53)

This is really polished and a really nice design. Congrats!

P#49703 2018-02-26 09:43 ( Edited 2018-02-26 14:43)

Very nice, very difficult, good work!

P#52682 2018-05-13 10:15 ( Edited 2018-05-13 14:15)

Is there anything different that happens if you collect all the smack squares (that's what I'm calling them) after the boss is finally defeated. I've come so close, I got the last one after the animation started, but I haven't clearly gotten them all before the end yet and I'm wondering if I'm beating myself up for nothing.

But then, why have them?

P#52711 2018-05-14 11:17 ( Edited 2018-05-14 15:17)

@joealarson Collecting all the post-fight tiles does not do anything special. I added them just to make you feel like you're getting in that final blow... but it was a mistake. A lot of players have the same feeling that it should do something special. I messed up!

Thank you for playing tho!

P#52748 2018-05-14 23:05 ( Edited 2018-05-15 03:05)

Ah! This is great! I subscribed your youtube for the collision math/pico-8 tutorials earlier in the year. I'm glad i found this! Its FRIGGIN AWESOME!

P#52859 2018-05-18 22:38 ( Edited 2018-05-19 02:38)

Can I add this to my website?

P#53189 2018-06-01 14:49 ( Edited 2018-06-01 18:49)

screams this is friggin amazing
I love everything about it, beat the first mode, but man, hard mode has EARNED its name.

P#56523 2018-09-11 11:48 ( Edited 2018-09-11 15:48)

OUTSTANDING ! Reminds me a lot of the "magic tent" in Chrono Trigger.


But they should've come to you. Your pixel graphics for the magician are far better !

Favorited !

And Gold Star earned !

... going to have to check out the rest of your games ...

P#56529 2018-09-11 13:07 ( Edited 2018-09-11 17:09)

One of my favorite games I've played in this genre of game. I'm probably going to share it with some of my friends :)

P#56534 2018-09-11 14:11 ( Edited 2018-09-11 18:11)

Just awesome. Those animations are stunning. Best Pico8 game I ever played! Keep it up.

P#56901 2018-09-19 18:49 ( Edited 2018-09-19 22:49)

Wow! I am still amazed by the quality of this game. Excellent work!

P#57125 2018-09-26 13:38 ( Edited 2018-09-26 17:38)

Why does mine not have any sound? I'm using a Mac

P#58202 2018-10-20 23:04 ( Edited 2018-10-21 03:04)

5 minutes, then I beat it

P#59594 2018-12-03 01:46

This is a kind of game there's not enough of its simple but entertaining, giving four simple easy attacks, but constantly ramping it up till it gets crazy. My only nitpick is that it takes to long to get back into the game after dying, but thats me being impatient i guess

P#59870 2018-12-10 13:02

Wow, this is really well done and polished! Great theming and adherence in visualization and personality to the theme.

Stellar job!

P#60441 2018-12-30 16:02

I love it.

Does the boss have a name? Until I am told otherwise, I'm naming him Kevin.

P#60905 2019-01-16 20:54

I want to know who can get the highest score.
Here's my current Normal Mode score:

Time - 4:12
Score - 53,200
No Deaths and No Damage.

P#60910 2019-01-16 21:15 ( Edited 2019-01-16 23:06)

Really good game.
I am trying to get the score 60,000 on hard mode!
My highest score is 57000
my best time is 3:33. I didn't get the same score and time. Is it possible to get 60,000? Also, can you make an extreme mode? I want an even harder challenge!

P#61914 2019-02-15 14:20 ( Edited 2019-02-25 16:57)

@destructor Is that your score on easy mode of hard mode?

P#62076 2019-02-19 14:33

@nonymousFog that is my score on hard mode.

P#62089 2019-02-19 23:10

When you find the knack,the final level may be the simplest

P#67859 2019-09-18 15:33 ( Edited 2019-09-18 15:35)

best one on the sight

P#69306 2019-10-26 09:13

I showed it to my nephews and they loved it. Asked me several times to set it up for them.

The most stylish PICO-8 game I've seen!

P#72286 2020-01-27 10:50

I got into perler beads recently and I've been making all the characters from my favorite pico-8 games! So, of course, i made the bloops! ♡ They're only about an inch tall, so tiny

P#76289 2020-05-10 03:50

This is great
I love it

P#76298 2020-05-10 08:17

This is hard

P#76595 2020-05-14 21:59

You might have made hard mode a little too hard because when it comes to the green Lil bloop and hard mode, you'll die 24/7

P#76635 2020-05-15 16:57

H Mi Sec

P#76753 2020-05-17 03:56

Beautiful game, where or how can I get the music, love it!

P#78783 2020-07-02 02:23

Beautiful animations, and really fun game-play. I would love to see this turn into a full game, due to the base mechanics having endless possibilities, and the characters being cute and simple, not to mention that the difficulty is just right!
Sadly, I don't know the first thing about game development.
Just promise me if somebody asks to make this a full game, you'll say yes.

P#82450 2020-09-29 19:48

This is difficult, fun, and the music is catchy and somewhat reminds me of spider dance from undertale.

P#82474 2020-09-30 18:39

If there's any criticism I have for this game, it's that in both normal and hard mode, the third phase of the boss seems like a big difficulty spike when compared to the rest of the difficulty changes in the boss fight. Also, in the last phase on hard mode, if you're forced into the center with your clone, it doesn't seem to be possible to dodge the cards coming from the sides, since there's always one about to be on your space or the space you're trying to move to. Those are my only real complaints. Everything else about this cart (music & sound, sprite art, character expressions for both the player and boss) is absolutely fantastic.

P#85317 2020-12-12 14:16

Someone Have Passed The Hard Mode?

P#86218 2021-01-06 21:54

really impressive!

P#86348 2021-01-11 12:26

Wooo got it second try

P#86475 2021-01-14 22:35

I FINALLY BEAT IT!! It's a really fun little game!

P#86856 2021-01-27 23:26

My only complaint is that I don’t really like it when the magic mirror clones you, outside of that this game is perfect. Also, while some of you were getting the highest score, I was getting the nicest score:

P#89828 2021-04-01 18:50

What an incredibly lovely, unique and dare I say - charming, game! 😳
