One of my favorite things lately has been watching Adventure Time
on Cartoon Network. Seriously if you have not watched this show, go check it out. It is a home run for gamers all over. The references to old school Dungeons & Dragons, MMOs, and classic arcade games make for a cartoon with tons of jokes. Finn and Jake rock and now we can play them on iOS with Adventure Time: Legends of Ooo
. Finally the guys are entering into the game market and as Finn would say “It is Awesome!”
With villians like the Ice King constantly trying to kidnap any Princess he can get his hands on, the guys have to travel around Ooo to rescue three of the Princesses and trick the Ice King with a fake garbage can Princes they make, imagine the Trojan horse in a weird way. That is just a touch of the humor that Adventure Time brings to the game. Constantly trying to negotiate obstacles and work out puzzles the Legends of Ooo game is great fun. It is also voiced by the actors with some hilarious dialogue.
One thing that is great about the game is my son is a huge Adventure Time fan. The game is helping him learn to read and work out puzzles with his favorite characters. It is great to see him solve problems as Finn with Jake cheering him on. The game is not fully voiced so it even gets him reading to find out answers to the puzzles. If he gets stuck just press the sneaking waving snail and you can get a clue as to what to do next. Some of the humor is a little older, but nothing offends and it is all in good fun. The game is simple fun and has plenty for younger and older players.
Hopefully this is the first of what Cartoon Network will do with Adventure Time
in the game space. The show pays tribute to so many classic games that it will be awesome to enter the land of Ooo and adventure with Finn and Jake on more quests. If you are not a fan yet, you will be after watching Adventure Time
and Legends of Ooo
is the perfect game to pass the time on your iPhone. Check out information on the game here.
