About This Game

Fake Illusions is a collection of optical illusions—but some aren't playing fair! Where straight lines look diagonal, one line actually is, and circles look like they differ in size, but secretly, one one of them is actually bigger or smaller, camouflaged by the illusion. The goal is to accuse these cheating illusions! But beware—the fakers will do everything to stay unnoticed... It's the ultimate test of your focus!

Featuring more than fifteen illusions about color, perspective, and movement, with lots of variants and distractions. Try the relaxing Zen mode, or the hectic Shuffle mode! Oh, and you can record GIFs, too!

Photosensitive Epilepsy Warning

This game features optical illusions, repeated patterns and high contrast images. Stop playing if you start feeling dizzy or sick.
