These psychedelic environments filled with highly saturated colors contain some of the cleverest puzzles found in video games. You will have to slow time to be able to read directional signs; and line up two scenes so that as you look through them you discover a new perspective and, perhaps, an undiscovered pathway. This adventure is exciting as you meet and interact with a series of quirky characters.

But the navigation can occasionally get frustrating. And the inclusion of intense, unpredictable battles can be off-putting for kids who were enjoying a gentle puzzle adventure. Vortexes open in tranquil scenes and out of them pour ferocious Playing Card Soldiers. The scary, toothy Bandersnatch just suddenly appears and tries to eat Alice. You must play through these combat scenes and succeed, a process that may take several attempts. These battle scenes are easier if you play with a friend, and the game supports the ability for another player to drop in and then drop out.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
