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.
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.
Alice in Wonderland is the template for this simplistic dodge game. More precisely the text of the first chapter. You fly through the waving and rotating letters and have to dodge them. Another task is to pass the certain letters of "Rabbit Hole" in order to get an extra life. Quite hard to find the double Bs in the standard words. The controls are not the best, the speed is insane and the hitboxes are quite clunky. Another annoying thing is the last achievement to do 500 attempts without leaving the game. But altogether it's a nice challenging game with steam leaderboards.

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...
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.
