Wonderland is a text adventure developed by Magnetic Scrolls and published by Virgin Mastertronic in 1990 for DOS. It was ported to the Amiga, Atari ST, and Acorn 32-Bit the following year. The story and visuals of the game are based on the Lewis Carroll novel Alice in Wonderland.
The game was written by David Bishop, who also worked on famous titles such as The Lion King and Disney's Aladdin. You will take your own trip into Wonderland by stepping into the iconic Alice's shoes. Though the game's storyline follows the basic framework of the novel, the developers put their spin on many things throughout the world to change it up.
Most of the game is played by typing in commands, but there are certain instances where some actions will appear in another menu that can be selected. The game is split into different windows, the main story, visual, inventory, map, and others. Each window can be sized, and its configuration can be changed to suit your preferences. As you play, you will explore Wonderland, meet zany characters and solve puzzles.
With its inventive story, visuals, and manageable interface, Wonderland garnered excellent reviews upon its release. The game is well-suited to just about any age and level of experience with adventure games. If you have played The Pawn or The Legacy: Realm of Terror, you already know Magnetic Scrolls means high-quality games. Have fun!
