Overview

"Alice thought she had never seen such a curious croquet-ground in her life; it was all ridges and furrows; the balls were live hedgehogs, the mallets live flamingoes, and the soldiers had to double themselves up and to stand on their hands and feet, to make the arches."

Gameplay

Players take turns hitting their hedgehogs with flamingos, trying to pass under the wickets. The intention is to pass through the wickets in order (Ace, 2, 3, etc.), and the first player to reach the final wicket wins. Passing through a wicket grants you another stroke, and awards coins.

When it is your turn, click on your hedgehog to bring out a flamingo. Click and drag the flamingo to aim your shot, and control the power of your stroke.

You can pan about the board two ways: you can simply drag the board around, or you can use the buttons on the Ace in the status display.

The hearts pointing in each direction will pan the board that direction. The two halves of the diamond control zooming; click the top part to zoom in, the bottom to zoom out.

The status indicator also shows which wickets each player is targetting, as well as which player's turn it currently is; the current player's hedgehog will be uncurled, while the others are rolled up.

Courses

There is currently only one course available for play.
