Alice's Adventures in Wonderland
Whimsical Game that Follows the Book
I tried this game to see if it was really as bad as the other reviews said. It's not. :)
I don't understand the complaint that was made about the graphics. I thought the backgrounds were beautiful, and the hidden objects no harder to find than is usual in hidden object games. If you have a laptop, it may help to tilt the screen at a different angle (as with other hidden object games). And after all, you can ZOOM in this game! That helps a lot. :)
As for the comments about the plot - well, I don't see how you can complain about that when it's very openly following a famous novel. If you don't like the book, you won't like the game. It's that simple.
The game is whimsical and nonsensical, like the book. Although I didn't enjoy is as much as the "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" game by the same people, it held my interest, and I found it a pleasant way to pass a few hours. :)

Good Interpretation of Alice in Wonderland
It's actually not as bad as many of the previous reviewers said. The storyline follows Alice in Wonderland pretty well. Although some objects are hard to find, I'm finding almost all of them. They do allow you to keep up to 6 hints at a time, and I found I have been keeping 6 the majority of the time. It's important to keep your brightness up on the computer. There are a few mini games that are keeping with the theme of the story. So far I have had to skipped 2 of them, which at least is an option. I'm enjoying playing the game although I can see how it could be tough for some younger children as you do need to be diligent in finding many of the objects.

Wow! This game does NOT deserve the prior baaaaad press!!!
It's not for everyone.... but it's a nice relaxing little game with plenty to do. It's a really good game for kids or for adults who just want to pass the time with little challenge.... kinda like Solitaire, y'know? I'd have given it 3.5 stars if I could've, but couldn't really give it a full 4. It's not terribly challenging but not soooo easy that you can just breeze through without a thought either. There's little animation, but the graphics are still well done. The story follows the book, as stated before.

A Welcome Diference
I loved this game! Graphics are beautiful. HO's are sometimes hard to see they are so small. The game is different and it difference was welcome!!

If You're Looking For a Good Game, Keep Looking!
Have you ever purchased a game, thinking it was a different game? That's what I did. Instead of the Fiction Fixers game, I purchased one of the most boring games BFG has. And because I'm OCD, I had to finish it...I couldn't leave it half completed. I do not recommend this game at all!!

It was Okay
Graphics were grainy. Many of the hidden objects were difficult to identify due to the quality. As the game progressed, the puzzles became more challenging. That was the best feature of the game. Overall I found it tedious. I would recommend downloading it and trying it for the hour before you decide to purchase. It's not a bad game. However, I do not think children would like it at all. The objects are too hard to find and the jigsaws may be to difficult.

Terrible graphics indeed! A very frustrating game which could have been so much more fun if you could actually see the hidden objects - nice plinky plonky music, and puzzles would have been ok if I was a little more dextrous with the buttons.

Don't waste your time or money
I love the story of Alice in Wonderland, but this game is horrid! I barely got through a half hour of the free 1 hour trial game before I had to shut it off. This game was not fun at all in my opinion, the graphics were terrible and the sound was really annoying. Play at your own risk, and definitely don't buy it without playing the free trial first.

"I have lost much of my muchness' said Alice
How dull! Same format all the way so far. Everything easy peasy - no challenges apart from whether you can be bothered to last the course. I couldn't. Suitable for a small child only.

This follows the story of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. About the only good thing about the game.
Hated the voice overs. Wanted to skip them and I did.
The graphics are really grainy and objects are hidden behind other objects so finding them is hard if you don't see them peeking out behind. Hate the movement from side to side with the mouse just to find and object. (Which you really didn't need to do most of the time anyways.)
Didn't listen to music much. Which is a good or bad thing? You judge.
Overall hated the game and felt like I was going blind looking for the objects.
Always try the trials first as everyone has different tastes.
