Not the most engaging story or outstanding game play but it gets the job done through sheer charm and nostalgia. If you're a fan of adventure time, this is a perfect little in between rental. It features several of the characters seen throughout the series that maintain their charm. AT:HIKWYSOG is a love letter to older games such as Mario and Zelda that's set in the wondrous Land of Ooo. If you're not a fan of the TV series, you may not get the full value from the game but it's an enjoyable experience and a solid rent that lasts about 6-8 hours.

I have never actually watched the show but the game has a quirky sense of humor and is fun to play. Kids should like it as long as they can read, because there is very little voice acting. The gameplay is very similar to the old zelda 2 because you travel over world until you enter a dungeon, town, or battle and then it changes to sidescrolling. One interesting element is the ablity to combine food items to make them stronger such as ketchup on a hotdog or hamburger. I only played the game for a few hours and reached the 50 percent mark in the game so it shouldn't be too frustrating for inexperienced gamers. The one drawback is there is no way to get extra experience by defeating more enemies the only rewards you get are items. But the items are so plentiful you don't really need to level up except for boss battles.
