I didn't like this game at all, didn't even finish the demo which I almost always do.

This is a DO NOT BUY for me!!!

WoW, This was truly a TRIP TO NEVERLAND, not Wonderland. I want my game club credit back.

After a bit the lightning and thunder stopped and I was so hopeful, but then it started again! Just impossible!

SO disappointed!!!


Same here, I was starting to feel sick after less than 10 mins of the free hour so I exited the game.

Because at the bottom of the screen where the key was, the menu and the hint button took up about 2 inches of the screen. It covered the steps ,only step showing was the top one, Anybody else have the samr problem. Any solutions available please.


The key is in the HANGING BASKET at the right of the screen, However, there are problems getting key to open door! Cursor does not always change!

Hope this helps.

Well, I'm clearing thru my backlog of demos rather quickly, since it seems they're all so bad I don't have to play them for an hr to realize it!

I quit at the 1st spot the difference. I needed 2 more, clicked on everything in sight, couldn't find anything. Hint head opened up to show me gears but unless the hint is as fast as the lightning flashes it doesn't appear to be usable in an STD scene. I'm not wasting a whole demo stuck on a stupid STD! And yes, the lightning & thunder was annoying & way too frequent. Made it hard to see things. This IS billed as a HOG, right? Apparently made by devs who don't understand the concept of how they're played b/c it's impossible to scan a scene that keeps flaring at you. I don't care if it goes away eventually. It should've left as soon as I got thru the door. Graphix didn't seem to know if they wanted to be nice or blurry. Music repetitious & grating.

I thought this was going to be something quirky & fun....like Alice in Wonderland was, maybe? Lewis Carroll must be spinning in his grave atm to see what's been done to his work.

this game was really disappointing. I only bothered finishing it because I had purchased it. Very repetitive puzzles and quite tedious hidden object game. Expected a lot more. Note to myself - check the forums before you buy in future!
Would be ok as a free online game but there are MANY better games to spend money on that dont repeat the same puzzles again and again.

Hated the music, the lightning was super annoying, the graphics are pretty but not weird enough, and I often ended up trying to figure out what they wanted me to do next. Didn't seem to come together all that well. Didn't bother finishing the demo.

I'm on the fence with this game. I love the graphics and the story, the characters and the IHOG. The music is haunting and beautiful but soon turns to monotonous. It's the mini games that make me hesitate. I love the mini games in IHOGS the best. These mini games are repetitive with the gears and I'm not overly fond of that. There's also sliders which I love and any kind of jigsaw puzzle is great. But I don't know. I got through half the game in the demo.

If I need an extra game to fill a card then I might get this one, but for now it's a no buy for me.

If you are on windows 7, you will need to "personalize" from "aero" to "basic" or, "classic", and I believe most of your crowbar and oil issues will go away. Like so many of these games, it will not run with pre-set windows 3-d like "aero".

Waste of money! Took me only a couple of hours total to finish it (not all at one time) and it wasn't as interesting as the others I have played. Was way too short and easy!

DO NOT waste your money on this one. I almost quit playing it after the first five minutes, but continued thinking it would get better. Wasted a whole hour on a really bad game. Music was giving me a migraine. Lightning was driving me crazy. For as few areas as there are to explore it was confusing to know which way to go and what to get. I just couldn't commit to this one. Oh, and I really didn't like the story either. I really wanted it to be the Alice in Wonderland story, but it was so far fetched and goofy. Sorry Big Fish, I'm usually a great supporter.

I was hoping that this would be a good game. I was wrong!!

1. the incessant lighting flashing not only left my head pounding but my nerves frayed.
2. I pressed hint, clicked where told to and nothing happened.

I was very disappointed in this game and didn't even get to play to form this opinion either.

I actually liked the game very much. First of all I usually play with the music turned off (so one major thing people hate about the game didn't faze me at all). The graphics were great, especially once I reached wonderland. The lightning only is there during the first couple of scenes (while you're still in the house) and I didn't find it all that bad. The mini-games are a tad repetitive and I'm not much of a fan of those cogwheel games, but the skip button fills up quickly.

I liked the story with the little twist a lot (it reminded me a bit of "American McGee's Alice") and found the characters a bit strange, but still fitting with the setting.

As I'm still running Windows XP, I had no technical issues at all. The custom cursor worked fine, the graphics were clear and I could find everything.

I played the demo for about a half hour, then read forum reviews, then went back to play until my time ran out. Despite all of the bad reviews, I may still buy the game.

The artwork is so beautiful that I'm less annoyed than usual by some of the hard-to-spot dark objects, and often I have found things in the course of enjoying the scene. For me, the colors, animations and the music (which is indeed repetitive if you listen, but it's fine with me as soft background) add to the atmosphere of the game. The lightning flashes did bother my eyes but I didn't last long enough to give me a headache.

The sad thing is... it could have been so much more.

I have betatested this game and wrote about the hard-to-find-clues. This game has so much wasted potential. Sorry, not a game for me

I also beta'd the game and remarked about the lightening flashes.

Thought I'd it again and it's a no brainer--not a game for me. Just an annoying game thru and thru.
