Alice in Wonderland, is the new Disney Interactive iPhone game made for the new Tim Burton film of the same name. Featuring Alice in a puzzle based strategy game, the virtual controls are provided for moving Alice left to right using directional buttons and jump with a jump button, as you encounter magical objects and new characters.
To switch between characters you tap on Alice and choose another one to transform into, and use their special powers to get past various mazes. You can also interact with most objects in the game by tapping on the action button in the middle of the screen when it shows up.
The Cheshire Cat: make objects appear or disappear with the power of his ability
March Hare: move objects using the power of telekinesis
Mad Hatter: transform objects with the power of transformation
White Rabbit: can freeze time, release objects and enemies with the power of time
If you remember playing Pitfall on the Atari you’ll have a good idea for the Alice in Wonderland style of play and movements around on the screen. There are lots and lots of tricky areas where you’ll have to find combinations of movements and powers to make your way across the large map. Making wrong moves will get you stuck until you find a way out. There are subtle clues and speech bubbles that try to help.
The Journal is where Alice keeps her magical items from Wonderland, including Photos, In-Game items, GPS apps, Riddles, and dates. These goodies are unlocked using various methods, such as being in the right place physically, answering questions and also for finding them in the game itself. The soundtrack music is brilliant and very fitting for the game. Graphics and interface are well designed and colorful. All the animations are smooth but at times using the run and jump buttons simultaneously can be tricky. Perhaps having an option to use tilt for running might be a good alternative here. The jump button not only jumps Alice up but also moves her forward which is nice when needed but can be awkward sometimes. Running past the poles with torches serves as a checkpoint, however if you quit out while in a level, you have to start that level over again.
The Alice in Wonderland game for the iPhone and iPod touch sells for $4.99 and you can try a light version for free in the app store. Grab a copy and be sure to watch the upcoming movie Alice in Wonderland: An Adventure Beyond The Mirror.
