Otome Game Review: Anniversary no Kuni no Alice

There once was an otome game released by Quin Rose called Heart no Kuni no Alice which made you visit characters over 300 times and had some poorly drawn artwork. Since the story was entertaining enough, QR decided to do a remake which they dubbed the “Anniversary Version” where they redid all the art, sprites and cut the number of turns by 100. After this gained enough popularity they decided to port it to the PSP so people could carry it on their way out the door and get more turns done in a day then they would only sitting in front of their PC. And so I bring you the review of the PSP port of Anniversary no Kuni no Alice. Our story takes place where our very rich heroine Alice Lidell is listening to her older sister Lorina read a book to her outside under a tree. Alice admires her sister a lot but in a complex kind of way, due to the fact that her ex-boyfriend dumped her for her sister, who her sister dumped as he wasn’t man enough. As her sister goes to get a deck of cards, Alice decides to take a nap. Her beauty sleep is interrupted when a furry white rabbit named Peter White abducts her and throws her down a hole into Wonderland. As he professes his undying love, he kisses her making her drink some bitter liquid and says that she’s now involved in the game of Wonderland – in which all the people who live there are at Battle Royale with each other on a daily basis.  In order for Alice to return home, she needs to whore herself around to various leaders of the various battle zones and gather hearts while avoiding the aspect of self responsibility. Unfortunately for our tsuntsun QR heroine, her plans to return get crushed when she starts falling in love.
