If you're looking for a puzzle platformer that carries on the tradition of other App Store greats, this one is for you.

Have you ever been browsing through the App Store, downloaded a game with a
really descriptive title, and then thought to yourself afterwards 'well... no
surprises there'? Yeah, that's kind of how I feel about Follow the White Rabbit.
Not to say that this game isn't well designed, or that it doesn't actually
provide a challenge, it's just simply one of those games where the title says it
all. The objective sounds simple enough: move your character (a squirrel? brown
rabbit? I honestly have no idea, but it's not really that important..) to the
door that your friend, the White Rabbit, has just gone through while also trying
to collect as many of his gold coins along the way. Swiping left, right, or up
will get you around, and is probably easy enough for a four year old to play the
beginning stages. There are more advanced controls to encounter along the way,
but if you've ever played anything like Cut the Rope you'll be well prepared for
what's in store. At the end of each level, you will be presented with an all too
familiar looking scoreboard that provides the usual set of statistics. The
visual design for Follow the White Rabbit was a well planned effort with plenty
of clean lines, shiny backgrounds, and a smooth framerate. Cute and playful just
about sums up the audio collection for this one, giving you a good cadence to
work to while avoiding a repetitiveness that can sometimes prove annoying. While
Follow the White Rabbit doesn't break any new ground and might come off as
somewhat of a clone in certain aspects of the game, there's plenty to appreciate
about all the things it does right. If you're looking for a puzzle platformer
that carries on the tradition of other App Store greats, this one is for you.
