This is an interesting concept, with really nice audio overall.
Gameplay is another story though, moving feels like it takes too long, sharp turns are bs and ♥♥♥♥ stage 5's artificial difficulty spike by the means of rotation.
Don't pick this at full price.

I was concerned that this game was going to suck because of the MIXED reveiws it has.But I was suprised just by how good the game truly is! Its a fun little game. I bought it with a coupon that I got and there is no sence in wasting it.So I used it and it was much much worth it. I give thi game a 7.8/10 rating.

It's pretty easy in the beginning but gets harder the more you get in.

Pros:
-Simple Graphics
-Sounds "tell" the next words coming
-Challenging

Cons:
-Controls could be more fluently
-It's always the same word pattern
-Can get frustrating

I don't think it's worth the 3 euros, but in sale it's a pretty good deal.

This is not a good game. If it was to be a game at all, it should be free.

All you do is move a cube up, down, left and right through gaps in letters coming towards you. I thought there'd be more - there isn't

The only thing I liked about this game was the story being read to you, apart from that the game is rather a nuisance to play because of what you need to do and how bad the movement is.

Falling down you have to move through letters while making sure you don't collide and while you try to go through certain letters so you can spell Rabbit Hole, that is the aim. While you do this there is a voice telling you bits of story which is the only nice part about this game. The movement and gameplay was just too much of a pain to recommend the game.

I was expecting too much of this game, even though I purchased it for less than a dollar.
The reading: it's depressing, and not the good kind.
I won't hold my personal feelings against it, though; the game plays okay.

I 'd 've bought it for full price too.
I haven't actually had this type of fun in a game in the long time, I played this for two hours straight when I got it, and I'd do it again.
If you can spare the cost, go for it, like I said its a great game and a great way to pass time.

You dodge letters from Alice in Wonderland to collect more letters that form the phrase 'Rabbit Hole'. The game explains this terribly and it controls even worse. I'm not sure why this was made but hey, if you feel like wasting $1.97, pick this up. If you want to not be frustrated, disoriented and possibly sickened, skip this.

This game is simple in it's concept however has some major flaws to it. first of all the idea is to avoid crashing into letters as the voice over tells the story of alice in wonderland. which is an interesting idea for a fan of the story, and simple enogh of a mechanic for ever young players. then the first issue comes into play the controls.

the movement in this game is very confusing and jerky when you move quickly to the next line in a few seconds yet moving up and down is instantly from very bottom to very top, meanwhile moving from left to right is done in one square size movements so moving around requires mashing the left or right button to move across letters while moving up and down can confuse you to thinking I can move down a little and go through the loop, instead crashing.

the second issue I find with this game is the restart mechanic after crashing. in some games this wouldn't be a problem however I look at this game as something more for a younger audience than an adult hardcore gamer, and there is no enjoyment from hearing the first line of the story over and over again. I would rather prefer that the game worked more around a score attack instead of make a perfect run-through to be able to hear the story.

this for kids wouldn't be good given how much it requires to be exact and remember how to go through and avoids storytelling. and for adults looking for a challenge there are many better games which won't irritate you by saying the same things over and over again.

Pretty basic: The narrator reads a line from Alice in Wonderland which, word by word, fly at you. You have to dodge between the letters and thereby pick them up as you go; if you fill out the words "rabbit hole" you get an extra life, i.e. an extra chance, when you inevitably die.

As someone who thoroughly enjoyed Super Hexagon, I can't say I reccomend. It's hard, not just because it tests your reflexes, but 3D objects flying at you without any indication of which plane you're positioned on makes it difficult to tell if you're in going to make it in the gap or not. And each time you move left or right the camera does an awful jerk that's strainful to the eyes. I'd pass.

I like the music and the game is amusing for a bit. It's alright if you can get it under a buck and since it comes with cards it mostly pays for itself then.

The real issue with the game it feels like a free flash game for the most part.

Horrible controls kill this game.
I can get behind the concept, and the music is fitting, but the only supported inputs are the arrow keys. Even if you try to map a controller in the Unity options, the game ignores it.

Gameplay in a nutshell: you are glued to either the top or bottom of the screen, and need to pass through the gaps between letters in order to collect them to form the word shown at the bottom of the screen. Unfortunately you have very little time to react, and combine that with a tilting camera that makes it extra unclear where exactly your block is located compared to the upcoming letters, and this game becomes less about skill and more about luck.

This game either needs to get rid of the tilting camera, or give some kind of indication where exactly your cursor is, by a shadow or light in front perhaps. In its current state it only serves as a source of frustration.

I got this game with a discount and I still dont think it was worth it the controls seem all stiff one direction and loose in the other. I guess the goal is to not hit words you are falling toward but it is hard to see if you will hit them or not with the way the camera is angled plus camera jerking. also its not very fun to play.

This game needs something more, it is very frustrating to have to repeat the same level over and over again because of hitting the letters and you get no reward that makes you want to continue, this game should have checkpoints and the letters that are left for power up should be highlighted because is difficult to see with such speed, this game more looks like a torture experiment as the achievement of trying 500 times without exiting the game suggests.

Like The Collider, but with the slight twist of needing to slip through the letters needed to spell Rabbit Hole thorugh a short story about Alice and the rabbit... there are a couple more twists, literally, that increase the tension of this runner.

on sale for 74c US and I played it for like 7-8 hours straight...

8/10.

Sadly developers of such games allways test their games with superhumans and they expect everyone got such reflexes and fast reaction times. But not everyone has insane handdexterity, some might be clever instead or skilled in some other ability. This is way every game need to have diffculty settings. Challenge is good, but we arent the same, what is challenging for some, might be impossoble for others.

This game is way too fast and hard. If you a gamer who like to finish the games you bought, then dont buy it, you will just get frustrated. Also, if you like to get perfect games, avoid this as hell.

I do not see what all the whining is about. As of now you can buy the game for less than a dollar. As far as the jerking motion is concerned it should jerk because it needs to have dimension to it. This is a minimalist game so nothing spectacular should be expected. Now if you are having trouble with getting through the game then don't write a bad review because you are having difficulties. Instead just focus on what you need to work on and try again. Some of the things I like best of this game is the effect of the letters coming straight out you as well as the electronic music. I thought the story of Alice and Wonderland played the whole time and not have sudden pauses in the game. I would recommend having at least 3 lives for a game like this to be fair. overall I would give this 4-5 stars.

Nice game to pick up if the price is right. Many setbacks though, this game was one the most difficult to get all of the achievements on I've ever attempted.

Pros:

Tells a semi-interesting story
Decent visuals
Cheap
Trading cards and achievements (100% is possible with a lot of practice)
No lag, glitches, or bugs noticed


Cons:

Huge learning curve
Creepy voice over
Repetitive
3D effect, flashing, and spinning may cause headaches/dizziness if played for a long period of time
Extremely challenging

I recommend this game if you are a decently skilled gamer and are not phased by motion sickness.
