K beat the game time for a review.
Graphics 5/5 They might not be the best in quality but they sure are great in design. I especially loved chapter 5.
Gameplay 2.5/5 The thing is the game is too easy. Once you realize you can spam dodge to evade most attack you will be spamming dodge. Also once you get the teapot cannon the game becomes really easy. The only problematic enemy is colossal ruin but it's easy if you just keep your distance and move in with vorpal blade when it's stunned. The 2nd thing is that there is a lot of platforming. I personally don't mind it but some might find it boring. But my main issue with the game that there is only ONE boss in the whole game. Rather disappointing.
Story 3/5 Well it's a nice sequel to the original but for the first 3 chapters the story won't make pretty much any sense. And then you see the plot twist in which I honestly did expected something like that.
Music 4/5 The music is not as awesome as in first one but it's still good. My main problem is chesire's new voice actor. The old one fit him way better.
All in all the game is not that bad but there are few things that could have been done better. They should have worked a bit more on the combats, a bit more weapons and tried to implement more than one boss enemy.
Now for something more fun.
1. Sometimes when you attack an enemy and quickly switch from hobby horse to vorpal blade it is possible for Alice to warp into enemy and just make it disappear.
2: Sometimes the air vents won't function properly and will just float you in one spot without raising you up.
3: Sometimes when you fall off a platform it won't register as a fall and it will make you fall endlessly and in the end it will kill you making you reset to the last checkpoint instead of last platform.
4: When you're shrunk it's possible to get stuck when going up the stairs and sometimes in small objects as well. I had to restart chapter 5 because I got stuck in that fall trough keyhole.
1: The place where you get the vorpal blade it's the skeleton of Jabberwock from Alice 1
2: The Mad Hatter has a voice actor. How awesome is that?
3: Lots of quotes from chesire during chapter 4 are the same as in Alice 1
4: The reaction of executioner when he realizes he's beep-ed is just priceless
5: During chapter 4 in a room with a memory you can see a skeleton with flying cap and some kind of psychic pose. That's a ref to Rasputin from the game Psychonauts. ( which is epic btw )
6: During chapter 5 you can see 3 blind mice on a shelf that look exactly like the mice from Shrek. But I wasn't really sure till I came to a enlarged version during the level and I can confirm that those look exactly like the blind mice from Shrek.
7: During radula room riddles chesire will ask you how are the Red Queen and a typhoon alike which is a ref to Alice 1. Hare asks you that when you get to him in Hatter's asylum.
