He looks a bit menacing! I don't believe I played that one.

I have and played a puzzle game called Wonderland and it does not look anything like that...never heard or saw of this one, what kind of game was it? The Wonderland I have is all puzzles to work out to achieve the final goal which is to rescue critters and a whole world from the 'baddies' and there are 2 sequels to it which I also have the last one being Wonderland, Mysteries of Fire Island.
Love, Betty Lou

It's kind of neat little game - It's Wonderland by Magic Scrolls.

Here's a picture of the actual game play (somewhat similar to the Windows version of The Colossal Cave Adventure).

Wonderland Game Play

I made a bid for this and a boxed copy The Leather Goddesses of Phobos II last month.

I have this game, but unfortunately I have it on 5-1/4" disks, which don't do me any good at all now. I do remember it well, though! thumbsup

I picked up Leather Goddesses of Phobos 2 on half.com last year, complete, in the box. smile

I played this ages ago and it was my first experience of text and graphics combined. Not at all bad.


Quantity has a quality all of its own

It still reminds me of WinADV (The windows version of Adventure). It's also a lot like the old ICOM Simulation games (Déjà Vu, The Uninvited and Shadowgate)...

A boxed copy you say eh Marian... Mine's a little tattered... I'm going to have to peruse half.com a bit more...

I have this game, but have not played it again in years. It actually sat quiet for a while even then (just loved the box)

Hmmm can you get it to play on XP?

Thanks for the nudge... reminder smile

It plays perfectly under DOSBox, although the install is every bit as quirky as it always was. I actually had to install the game under the XP command prompt because DOSBox got confused after the first disk swap.

After that however it was a simple move to my DOS game directory and a few simple setup prompts to add it to D-Fend Reloaded (the front end I use for DOSBox).
