Illusionist is a powerful 3-dimensional graphics package that enables you to create any object, of any colour and texture, illuminate it with coloured lights or spot lights, and render it in any 256 colour screen mode. A special colour mixing algorithm enables Illusionist to display an ‘infinite’ number of colours, giving the impression of very expensive graphics hardware! The result is stunning quality graphics on your own Archimedes. It’s even better when used with the Serial Port’s Graphics Enhancer card.

You can map any full screen sprites onto any object in a scene – you can even wrap it around a sphere. The objects can then be given a texture or surface varying from matt to metallic.
