FunFactor: ★★★☆☆ 

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is a hidden object/logic puzzles casual game based on Lewis Carrol’s first Alice book, and is just as warped as the book it came from. It pretty much follows the story verbatim, with the exception of skipping some parts to add the puzzles. There are switch and spin jigsaw puzzles with illustration from the original book, which gives this game even more authenticity. The hidden object puzzles are not typical, as not only do you get a small list of things to find, but once that list is finished, a new list gets added, asking to find multiple items of the same kind. In the English garden scene, you are asked to find a certain number of one kind of flower, then another kind, then a certain number of insects, then another kind. Good luck searching for those walking sticks!

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is one of many Wonderland-based casual games out there these day, but no one has yet to produce one based on Alice Through the Looking Glass as of yet, but if the same company that created this game does that one, there will be difficulty in finding one that isn’t as close to the story at that one could be. While I did like the fact that the game stayed true to the story, some of the logic puzzles can be frustrating, and you might find yourself wanting to skip through them using the bonuses you rack up during the hidden object puzzles. All in all, it is pretty fun, and you might find yourself wanting to read the books again just to see how close the game and the story really are.
