4 Friends Games continues to improve with each of their releases, and Bridge to Another World: Alice in Shadowland might be their best work yet. In this third installment of the highly-acclaimed fantasy series, you play as Alice, who were brought to the Shadowland in hope that you would help save the world from the much-loathed Red Queen. Whether you are the real Alice from the legend or not, you must join the rebels and face against the Queen in order to earn your way home.
Alice in Wonderland is one of our favorite fairytales, and so we are excited every time a HOPA takes on this classic theme. Bridge to Another World: Alice in Shadowland is loosely based on the iconic fairytale, but with even more over-the-top moments and action-packed excitement. There is definitely a lot to see and interact with in this game; thus, we were captivated by the game all the way from start to finish.
The people at 4 Friends Games are the experts when it comes to fantasy adventures, having already spawned the stunning Living Legends series. But no matter how gorgeous the studio’s previous games were, they could not be compared to the beauty of Alice in Shadowland. This game is downright spectacular. All of the scenes are filled with lush colors and detailed artwork, what’s not to love about that? Besides, the incredible cutscenes and the epic soundtracks make the game even more appealing. One tiny problem, we found the voice-overs to be slightly awkward at times – although that didn’t make the game any less enjoyable.
Bridge to Another World: Alice in Shadowland kept us occupied at all times with a gazillion tasks to complete in a scene. That is, Alice in Shadowland is not actually an easy game, predictable as it is. Every single aspect of the game is well-executed. The hidden object scenes are satisfyingly challenging, with objects that are less obvious to find and a nice variety. The puzzles are delightful and creative, ranging from easy to medium difficulty. In addition, you are also equipped with a Compass that helps you recover a lost item – we found this a little gimmicky.
We completed the main game of Alice in Shadowland within 4.5 hours and the amazing bonus chapter in an hour and 15 minutes. The bonus content section of the Collector’s Edition featured a strategy guide, wallpapers, concept art, screensavers, movies, soundtracks, achievements, collectibles, replayable puzzles and replayable hidden object scenes.
