This is a map I made for fun. I still am going to work on a few more if I have any ideas on what to make. This is my first Illusion map so don't always expect it to be the greatest.


Creation Time-15+ Hours

Gameplay Time-6-17 Minutes

This map is a map to test your mind to see if you can figure out how each optical illusion really works. What these illusions try to do is make something appear like it is something else by looking at it from a certain spot. My personal favorite optical illusion is #5. I will be adding more if i get enough support and if i have any ideas.


Try to figure out how the most optical illusions work without using gamemode commands or Optifine zoom. Play the map in a smaller resolution for a harder challenge.

Illusions (Spoiler)
Infinite Slope
This illusion makes it appear as if you can walk down in a circle.

This illusion has sticks where if you look at it from the left side it appears there are 4 sticks and on the right side there appears to be 3.

The Box

This illusion makes it appear as if a side of a box is bent in front of the other.

This illusion makes it appear as if a log is touching the other end.

Flat or Not?
This illusion makes it appear as if the land is flat but there is a bump in the road.

This illusion makes it appear as if there are 2 3D blocks that share one side.

This illusion makes the ground appear at many different heights.

Very Bendy Road
This illusion makes it appear as there is a flat road that goes over and under itself.

Guardian's Cube
This illusion combines small up close proportionally larger and farther away structure that appear to come together and make a cube.

Color Changer
This illusion relies on the weirdness of the human eye rather than perspective. After staring at the colored canvas for 10 seconds, it will turn white and the colors will still appear to be there for a few seconds . Remember to not blink for best results on this one.

This illusion shows a stream of water that "magically" became narrower and higher yet appears to have remained the same height all the way through.

Impossible Island
This illusion shows a flat island and a waterfall coming from the end of the island that somehow feeds back into the front yet the ground stays flat.


-Your head can get in the map if you simply record a video of you playing this map and post it in the comments.

-Remember to not spoil the illusions until the end of the video if you want to. You can go into spectator mode after viewing all the illusions.

CreditNone. I did this all by myself.
