Alice in Clumsy Land
From the combined talents of Irene Antushevich, Alexey Mamadin, Pavel Fedosov, and Nikolay Grechko comes Alice in Clumsy Land, a gorgeous fairytale of a physics puzzler based on the classic children's story of girls almost getting beheaded by megalomaniacal matriarchs. In each stage, the object is to deliver the an important object to each area's Wonderland citizen by clicking pieces of scenery to remove them. The watch will follow the natural path that physics and gravity dictate, and it's up to you to use other objects, like bouncy cushions, to get it into the character's hands. Each stage also has three optional stars to collect that may take a bit of extra thought and planning to nab. Some stages are also larger than others, and you'll have to click and drag to pan around the level.
Obviously, looks don't count for everything, but dang Alice, you fine. With beautiful illustrated cutscenes and vibrant level design, Alice in Clumsy Land is a gorgeous little physics puzzle with a whole lot of charm. The gameplay itself is really nothing we haven't seen before, mainly being a variation on titles like Monsterland, Cut the Rope and more, but there's a lot to be said for executing a concept well, and Alice in Clumsy Land definitely does that. It introduces new elements as you go, even new areas and characters to work with, and the physics are both reliable and constant. The game is great at providing "false herrings" in its level setup, frequently giving you multiple objects to remove and manipulate when you really only need a fraction of them for success.
On the other hand, some players may find the challenge ramps up a bit too slowly to maintain interest, and not having every level fit on once screen, as some force you to drag the screen around to see everything, is a little frustrating. I'd rather take a slight downgrade in visuals on those larger, more complex stages to shrink everything to fit. The inclusion of certain objects that force you to act quickly, such as the gas bubbles that explode after a certain amount of time, also feel like they disrupt the relaxing "pick and plan" feel of the rest of the game, which might frustrate people looking for a more relaxed experience. But with an enormous amount of levels, characters, some genuinely challenging and clever level design, and a pretty face to boot, Alice in Clumsy Land is easily one of the better physics puzzles out there and will keep you busy for a long time.
