Alice in Wonderland is a game based on the movie directed by Tim Burton, which is inspired by the literary classic written by Lewis Carroll. Developed by Disney Interactive Studios, this game takes the player down the rabbit hole and into Wonderland. Players take on the role of different characters in order to find their way around, defeat the evil Red Queen’s forces, and ultimately win the battle against the Jabberwocky.
The player controls five major characters: March Hare, White Rabbit, Cheshire Cat, Mad Hatter, and Dormouse. Each character has a special ability, and it is up to the player to decide which one to use when confronting a particular challenge. To illustrate, the White Rabbit is able to stop time, the Cheshire Cat can make itself and other objects disappear, and the March Hare has a telekinetic power that comes in handy when facing a foe. In addition to fighting enemies, the player also has to solve puzzles and find a way to get from one location to another. There are plenty of optical illusions that only the Mad Hatter can solve, and secret passageways that only the Dormouse can get through.
Players also collect Impossible Ideas and chess pieces to upgrade their powers, replay levels, and unlock game secrets. The game is played using keyboard controls.
