Alice in Wonderland
A Darker Take
This is definitely a darker take on the classic Alice in Wonderland story (which can be a bit dark as is). I thought the characters and story were interesting enough, but I didn't absolutely love playing through it. Some of the puzzles were... annoying at best, impossible at worst. There didn't seem to be enough in-game help. Many of the puzzles took a lot of thought in order to solve. Which I admit isn't always a bad thing.
Overall not a horrible game... just not the best. Definitely not worth a second play through; at least not by me.

Not So Much
It was too ambiguous to be much fun. And finding the hidden objects wasn't altogether difficult since they weren't in among a bunch of other things like in most of the hidden object search games I've played.

Was going well, then what happened??
We (our household) thuroughly enjoyed the game. We had no issues with figuring out where to go next as the items will be red if they are not in that location and previous areas are unavailable until you find your items (making the playing field smaller). IMHO, this was easier than some of the more in depth hidden object games that can have me retracing my steps for upwards of an hour to figure out where to go next.
We enjoyed the graphics, the storyline... what there was of it, and the music (most of it).
That being said, I was very dissapointed by the ending. The leading story led me to believe the game would be much more in depth, but the ending left me with an empty feeling thinking the writers ran out of Wonderland stories to explore so they abruptly ended it. I, myself, can think of many other parts of Wonderland that were leftout and can think of no other explaination for the ending. I'm sorry I can't give more details to my dissapointment without totally spoiling the ending of the game.

I love Alice in Wonderland, so the premise of this game grabbed my attention almost immediately. Upon playing it, however, I really wish I hadn't bothered to download it.
As for the good points, the graphics are all right and the sound is fine, though I swear there had to have been sampling involved as I recognized the opening music as something incredibly similar to a tune or two from Final Fantasy 6. Character design wasn't so bad, but the "Queen" art seemed to be someone's original character designed jammed into an otherwise fantastic environment. She didn't fit aesthetically.
Bad points, there are many. Making progress is often hampered by unclear directions. The actual hidden object aspect is tarnished by forcing the player to find tiny, translucent objects in a large scene, and it's generally ten or fifteen of the same thing. The only games that were fun, for me, were piecing together torn scraps and releasing keys with a sliding puzzle. You can have those blasted gear games with my blessing, and may I never see another again.

Pretty, But Not So Fun
This game is really graphically beautiful and the storyline is good, though different from the traditional 'Alice'. The problem is that objects are really hard to find either because you're not certain what you're looking for, or the location and/or appearance of the object doesn't make sense.
I struggled to finish it because I got a little bored and frustrated with trying to find my way around when available directions weren't clear or missing bits of info from conversations I couldn't replay.

NOT A BAD GAME BUT COULD BE BETTER!
This was kind of different then the other adventure games I have played. The setting was kinda creepy. The graphics and sound quality were good. The level of challenge could have been a little harder. There are several chapters in this game. Ten girls have gone missing in this game and you need to find them.

Found the game really difficult to play. Though the graphics were rather good, there's no indication (no stars or anything lighting up) when the mouse pointer is hovering over an active area, so it's really difficult to determine what the next step is. I gave up after 20minutes of the trial. Sound stopped by itself 5 minutes into the game. A real pity cos with just a little more clues for the player, the game can potentially be fun.
