54321 Curse of Oz, Jan 04, 2011

by

The Curse of Oz and Fiction Fixers series in general is excellent gaming for anyone who loves a good story and a bit of detective work. On first impression, the thing I liked the most was the sound and music—a bit eerie but also soothing background for encountering the environment and solving the puzzles. I also thought the environment was beautifully animated.

The puzzles are fun and pleasing to solve. The hidden objects are also fun because of the wealth of old period-specific items in various conditions. I also liked the way that you can encounter environments more than once: instead of trying to gather up all your tools at the outset, you have to return to certain areas to get what you need to complete tasks. The tasks themselves aren’t that hard, so this might not be the idea game for someone who wants a very demanding series of puzzles or tasks (or it might if played on expert setting—I played novice). But advanced gamers might still enjoy it if they enjoy the idea of entering a story they know well and having the object of restoring it.

One thing that could be improved is having a bit more contact with other characters (such as munchkins or wicked witch) but this might be frightening for younger users (I would have enjoyed it though). I think this game would be perfect for anyone above the age of 11 and especially for kids who have seen the movie and/or read the book.
  As an adult, I enjoyed it also and think that there are HUGE numbers of adults who would love to be able to “interact” or enter their favorite novels and play some roles (perhaps even more substantial ones) in manipulating the story. I might be biased though, because I have a PhD in English literature, but I still think anyone who loves to read would enjoy this kind of game. Expand beyond Alice and Oz!! Might I recommend a few novels that would translate well—Kidnapped (RL Stevenson), The Woman in White (Wilkie Collins), Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court (Twain). 
  I think the full version is definitely worth the price because you get a thoughtful and well-executed gaming environment for an extremely reasonable fee. It didn’t take me long to download it but that’s because I have broadband (not sure what it would be like with DSL). Excellent game overall.
