  1. In this instance however, developer Etranges Libellules have crafted a game of rare quality, movie spin-off or not.
  2. AceGamez
    A definite must play!
  3. This colourful adventure is more Lewis Carroll than Tim Burton and fuses puzzles with exploration to great effect.

    It is one of the best designed games in the Nintendo DS, with extraordinary visuals and an adventure suited for all types of public which won't disappoint anybody.
  5. Alice in Wonderland is a surprisingly innovative adventure game with a strong presentation and an entertaining gameplay.
  6. A quirky, delightful title. Calling it one of the best movie tie-in games we've ever played sounds a little like we're damning it with faint praise. So instead we're just going to go ahead and say it's one of the best games we've seen on the Nintendo DSi in quite a while.
  7. Alice in Wonderland for the DS is a unique yet delightful game for Nintendo's dual-screened wonder.
  8. Alice in Wonderland is surreal, dreamlike, well-crafted and very beautiful.
  9. Fun, quirky and refreshing. It may not take long to complete but is a Wonderful journey.

    Such free-thinking touches recall a more experimental age when you could rightfully expect every other DS game to be crammed with esoteric concepts. [Apr 2010, p.118]

    With clever design to separate itself from the disappointing movie, Alice in Wonderland is a fun game in its own right.
  12. Alice in Wonderland is a shining example of how to make an exploration puzzle game, and a movie tie-in one at that.
  13. This is the videogame equivalent to the Tim Burton movie, but this time you play as the white rabbit and fight with your watch in sweet and unique graphics. The game is fun, but Alice is simply annoying.
  14. It doesn't pack much of a punch, but this is a beautifully crafted, imaginative platformer.
  15. A nice 2D adventure title, where stylistic impact and excellent character design overcome the minor flaws.
  16. Alice in Wonderland for Nintendo DS comes as the classic game for kids, since the adventure is pretty linear and it can be completed in a few hours with little effort. However, the graphics are very cool and the controls are intuitive. Definitely it's worth a try.
  17. If you enjoy platformers filled with puzzles and a classic storyline, this is your chance at playing a good, portable movie tie-in.
  18. A well structured platform, with few original ideas that supports a fair designed backtracking. The art style is brilliant, for one of the best tie-in in the last years.
  19. Alice in Wonderland looks fresh and brings an entertaining adventure. The puzzles are fun to play, but sometimes the answers are a bit to easy to find.

It is an interesting platformer with many innovative puzzles, and not to say the least bosses. The controls have a perfect learning curve with just enough challenge, but still possible to master. The graphical style of the game is very good as well. There is a bit of comic relief too so as to make the story not come in the way of your experience. Full Review »
