Not to be confused with that other through-the-looking-glass tale, Ally's Adventure Through the Glass puts you in the shoes of a young girl who enters the Mirror World, a magical place inhabited by talking plants, kindly alpacas, and ensorcelled ponies. Gameplay is extremely simple, but a bit frustrating. Each location is a static scene that blends photography with charming digital art. The cursor changes when it passes over an exit or a usable object. However, these are often invisible, and you'll end up clicking blindly on the screen to find everything. You'll encounter various puzzles, whose solutions are often quite illogical, at least to an adult's way of thinking. Luckily, the publisher provides a walk-through on its Web site. Ally's Adventure Through the Glass is definitely for parents to play with young children. But we wonder how many children will have the patience to sit through more than the demo's one level.

Developer's Description

When seven-year-old Ally follows her cat through the glass she begins a strange fantasy adventure. Loosely based on the Lewis Carroll story Through the Looking Glass, the game has beautiful graphics and lots of fun puzzles for all ages. This game is great for playing with kids since adults will enjoy the story and beautiful images as well. Walk-throughs are available from the Web site to help you solve the puzzles, and the nonviolent storybook feeling will provide hours of enjoyment and entertainment while you solve the mystery and enjoy the funny characters similar to those in the Lewis Carroll story. Meet Humpty Dumpty, talk to the sunflowers, the alpaca, and the goat engineer.

Version 4.0 may include unspecified updates, enhancements, or bug fixes.
