Lewis Carroll, Professor Potch’s favourite author is in trouble. It’s 1871 and Carroll has come up against a pesky case of writer’s block while writing his second novel, Alice Through the Looking Glass. It’s your job to fix it by travelling between regions of his brain and lighting the sparks of his imagination. Be quick about it, though! If you don’t manage to get rid of the block in time, Alice Through the Looking Glass will remain uncompleted forever…
A BEAUTIFUL-looking game with all the charm and quirkiness you’d come to expect from a room based on Lewis Carroll’s infamous works. This room was decorated perfectly, with an interesting set and excellence in its design, without being overbearing or cluttered. Just spot on. A well-lit and spacious room that is a feast for the eyes.
I could sum this game up in just a few words. It is a masterpiece of game design. One of those rare games where every single puzzle is perfect in its execution. The room leaned more towards words and logic as one would expect, but there with a slew of teamwork, physical, searching and observation puzzles too (even with a little maths thrown in!)
Each and every puzzle was excellent in its logic, with wonderful ah-ha moments, and perfect logic that just worked to aid you to solve the puzzle. Most of all, the puzzles will make you feel smart!
The puzzles were all perfectly in theme, feeling like they sprang from the mind of Lewis Carroll and into our hands.
The flow was lovely, fast-paced, smooth a fuss-free, with all the puzzles linking seamlessly and working together to create a slick game.
Signposting was perfection, with just enough to guide us but not enough to be directive.
Clues were delivered via a voice over (I think, it was a while ago!)
Our game host was fantastic, enthusiastic and passionate, giving us clues with perfect timing.
Did we escape?
