A little game I could not resist:
Alice in Vivaldi's Four Seasons, part of MGI's children's music edutainment
series. As a big fan of both "Alice in Wonderland" and Vivaldi,
I was intrigued by their merger.
My favorite game involved listening to a Vivaldi piece and then selecting the matching melody
from a collection of oddly arranged Vivaldi tunes. The alternate arrangements are wonderfully
diverse and include one played on the sitar and another done boogie-woogie style.
It is so much fun listening to these that one wishes MGI would put out an album called "The Distorted Vivaldi."
It is obvious from the imagination and care put into these altered arrangements and the other
puzzles that Seasons was created by people with a deep understanding and appreciation of music. The game feels less like children's edutainment than like the work of musical evangelists who consider music a powerful, life-changing force.

Taking two of the worlds best loved classics, one literary and
one musical, MGI has blended these diverse art forms, added a dash of
their own unique drawings, and come up with a cutting-edge entertainment
software title that is creative, interactive, educational, and simply
The game scenes are beautifully illustrated and the Cheshire Cat seems
to never run out of poetic feline phrases and musings that are delivered
to the beat of the casual wave of his tail.
