'''''Penn and Teller's Smoke and Mirrors''''' is a 1995 game featuring illusionist duo Creator/PennAndTeller. It was made for the [[SegaGenesis Sega CD]]. Although the game was completed, it was unreleased when its publisher, Creator/AbsoluteEntertainment, went bankrupt, although the game had appeared in gaming publications beforehand. It resurfaced years later when an owner to a website that documents unreleased games received a copy from an initial reviewer.

* DevelopersForesight: Thought you could cheat your way through Desert Bus by holding down the A button with something? Too bad the bus constantly veers to the right to stop this.

* ''Desert Bus'': The most well-known among the minigames, where you must drive 360 miles from Tucson, AZ to Las Vegas on a desolate highway, without being able to go faster than 45 MPH, and with the steering bus pulling slightly to the right to prevent you from simply putting a weight on the drive button to keep it moving. Has been a subject of ''WebVideo/LoadingReadyRun's'' ''WebVideo/DesertBusForHope'' charity drive, and has also been ported to [=iOS=] and Android devices with proceeds going towards Child's Play.

* EyeBeams: In ''Smoke and Mirror'', the Impossible difficulty setting has the player run into Creator/LouReed after one screen, who will shoot beams from his eyes at the player, who in turn is instantly killed.

* ArtisticLicenseGeography: It's weird that a game that's advertised as a ''verisimulator'' would have any AcceptableBreaksFromReality whatsoever, but Desert Bus does.

** But to further emphasize the point (no pun intended), the score is shown with eight placeholders, so after you drive eight hours, the score reads "00000001".
