The enchanted mirror splits you into multiple images. You must become whole before time runs out. Changing stairways and folding cubes try to keep you from safety.


Illusions was an original game created at the French office. A Colecovision and an Intellivision version were developed simultaneously. Both versions were announced and shown at the January, 1984 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

After Mattel Electronics closed down, the rights to the game went to the newly independent French office (Nice Ideas). They were able to get Coleco to distribute the Colecovision version, but the Intellivision version was never released.
