Magnetic Scroll's last adventure game (before they designed the inferior adventure/RPG hybrid The Legacy: Realm of Terror for Microprose) is in my opinion the best game they produced, filled with memorable characters, creative and challenging puzzles, and excellent windows-based interface, refined from Collection 1, that gives the player both the power of direct interaction with the parser and menu-based creation of sentences (similar to Legend's early games). You are none other than Alice, the hapless heroine of Lewis Carroll's immortalized "Through The Looking Glass", who inadvertently found herself in a fascinating fantasy world populated by talking animals and objects. In your quest to find your way home, you will interact with many well-written characters that truly capture the spirit of the novel, and solve many puzzles that are challenging yet all very logical. The game's many time- and location- based puzzles will truly force you to think in three-dimensions and be acutely aware of how long it takes to perform actions, and will give you a great sense of satisfaction when you figure them out. The shrinking/enlarging puzzle remains one of the most memorable puzzles of all time. Don't consider yourself an IF lover without playing this game!
