Alice starts out on the bank of a river listening to her older sister read, drone on, from the book she is holding. A book without pictures or conversations, Alice muses. What kind of book is that? Dinah wanders off, out of boredom, and so does Alice. Alice, being a very curious child, runs into many distracting and sometimes yummy things while looking for her cat. After finding some brownies and taking a nap, she spots a curious white rabbit and follows it until she finds herself tumbling down its hole. Her dress parachutes up and she glides down to the bottom with only a thump. Brushing off her dress and looking around, she spots a glass table, on top of which are a small key and a little bottle, which is labeled 'drink me.' This is where the real adventure begins as things grow "ever more curious."
Alice in Wonderland is a clever game and a grand adventure for fans of Lewis Carroll's great book. If you have also read the book, the storyline will seem very familiar and the gameplay will be easier to follow. I would venture to say that those who never read the story will still find the game enjoyable, but a bit more difficult. If you enjoy text games and the story of Alice's adventures in Wonderland you would agree with my rating of 4.
The AI follows commands such as East, Take, Put in pocket, and Eat. A good memory and/or a piece of paper to draw a map on also help. Just remember to have fun and watch what you eat!
Dear Abandonia visitors: We are a small team that runs one of the largest DOS Games websites in the world. We have only 3 members of staff, but serve 450,000 users and have outgoing costs like any other top site for example: our servers, power, rent, programs, and staff. Abandonia is something special. It is a library of old games for you to download. It is like an old gaming arcade with all the old games in their original format. Abandonia is a place where you can find great old games and have fun four hours and years. To protect our independence, we are dependent of our friends using the site. We run on donations averaging around 6 USD (5 Euro). If everyone reading this gave the price of a cup of coffee, our fundraiser would be made easier. If Abandonia is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online for another year. Please help us forget fundraising and get back to Abandonia.
