Alice's Teacup of Madness - Following The Rabbit
Alice's Teacup of Madness's theme is a success because of a number of reasons. First of all, Alice in Wonderland is a many people's favourite book, so if any of them is around time-management game, they will want to try it out.
Then you have those who look forward to Tim Burton's version of Alice this spring, so they will also be willing to eat this "appetizer". And of course those who don't really care about Alice but want to try this new time-management game.
Drinking tea was only a part of the story in the book. Here it's the major activity.
In the very beginning you get a short story in a cartoon-style way where Alice meets the rabbit and wants to follow him.
But the rabbit tells her that she needs to go and work in the teahouse first if she wants to be on the journey.
Then you see the map of all the places you are to go to though the game. The diner where Alice is going to work looks all cute and bright.
The customers that come to the teahouse are rabbits, cats and many other story caracters. Quite soon Alice gets a helper - Walrus. He helps her in a very unusual way. When one of your customers loses their patience you can drag them to Walrus, and he will kick them out.
That sounds weird, but the game tutorial will tell you that in that way you will lose less money than if that customer leaves the place themselves.
You will have to serve drinks and different kind of cakes that will get more and more complex.
You get more points for sitting the customer on the seats of the same color. You can also double or triple some actoins. Like adding toppings to two cakes by clicking the right button of the mouse and draging the mouse over two cakes.
There is a big store with the upgrades that you can by on the money you earn in each level. Some of the upgrades are extremely helpful like a tray that can serve the finished teas and cakes to the customers, and you can go on with other orders.
The game will be fun and enough challenging both for the fans of the book and the genre.
