ALICE: MADNESS RETURNS is an action adventure video game inspired by Lewis Carroll's novels, 'Alice in Wonderland' and 'Alice through the Looking Glass'. Gamers play Alice as she fights to save Wonderland from evil forces. The game was classified '15' for strong language, twice very strong, and fantasy violence and gore.

The BBFC's Guidelines at '15' state 'There may be frequent use of strong language (for example, 'fuck'). The strongest terms (for example, 'cunt') may be acceptable if justified by the context. Aggressive or repeated use of the strongest language is unlikely to be acceptable'. In ALICE: MADNESS RETURNS, there are several uses of strong language. There are also two uses of very strong language. One use of very strong language occurs in the context of a conversation overheard between two other characters, behind a wall, and the other occurs as a drunken tramp mumbles obscenities to himself in a corner. Neither use is directed at the player character and both uses could be missed altogether, depending on how the game is played. Given the incidental background nature of the uses, the very strong language could be accommodated at '15'.

The Guidelines at '15' also state 'Violence may be strong but should not dwell on the infliction of pain and injury. The strongest gory images are unlikely to be acceptable'. The violence in ALICE: MADNESS RETURNS is entirely fantastical and, whilst occasionally strong and sometimes bloody, there is no dwelling on the infliction of pain and injury, nor are there very strong gory images.

ALICE: MADNESS RETURNS also contains a discreetly implied child abuse theme.
