A Really, Really Short Game

Presentation 9.9: The game makes you feel like you're in an Adventure Time episode. The animation is crisp, the dialog is hilarious. But if they'd use voice actors, it would be a little better.

Length 3.0: FIVE HOURS! THAT HOW LONG IT TOOK TO BEAT THIS GAME! Even for a 3DS game, that's short. I was expecting at least 10 hours, but no, we just got five.

Replay Value 3.1: There is not that much. When you complete the game, you unlock a harder mode but i doubt anyone is going to do that. You could also search for the wizard stars to fully upgrade yourself...thats it.

Gameplay 8.5: Adventure time pays homage to Zelda II, which is pretty cool and it also reminds me a little bit of Banjo-Kazooie. The bosses are fun, except for two. I found myself getting bored during the last 2 hours and a bit annoyed by the back tracking. But besides that, it's a fun game.

Overall 6.1: I wanted to give this a higher rating, but when you have a game this short, its hard to do so. If you love the show, or have kids that do, you might consider buying it. If not, then save your money and rent it for a day.

Cute, Fun, Way too Short

This is a very cute game. If you are a fan of "Adventure Time," you'll probably enjoy it. All of the characters are here -- Finn, Jake, Princess Bubblegum, Lumpy Space Princess, Marcelline, etc. There's some really funny stuff (I especially like the background music in the barbarian village -- "Eat! Fight! Be Manly!").

The game is pretty easy (except the final boss fight with the Ice King, which I still have not managed to beat). There's a lot of tedious walking around -- it would have been nice if there had been a way to jump from one place to another once you've gotten there. Also, it would have been nice to have a way to know how much life the boss you're fighting has left.

Inventory management is also a pain, since you have to double-click on an item to use it. That can be difficult when you're in the middle of a battle.

But hey, you probably aren't going to play this one for its gameplay. You're going to play it for the fun of making Finn and Jake run around the Land of Ooo. It's well worth playing, for that alone.
