Adventure Time - Legends of Ooo: Big Hollow Princess



Good looking but rather hollow adventure game.

What parents need to know

Educational value

Kids can learn to piece together clues to solve rudimentary puzzles and save the princesses. Doing so requires logical, deductive reasoning and an eye for detail. It's worth noting, though, that the puzzles are all fairly easy, so don't expect a real educational challenge here. Adventure Time - Legends of Ooo: Big Hollow Princess offers more of an intellectual warm-up than a workout for your brain. 

Ease of play

The game is a point-and-click style adventure title, so the game mechanics are very easy to figure out. Solving puzzles requires some logic skills, but none are especially complicated.

The app is based on a popular Cartoon Network program (which will soon have a console game coming out). Kids could become more interested in the show and ask parents to watch it or buy additional merchandise from it.

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Adventure Time - Legends of Ooo: Big Hollow Princess is an old-school point-and-click adventure game based on a popular Cartoon Network program. That could create uncomfortable moments when kids ask to watch the show or buy other merchandise tied to it. While the game is not especially difficult, it requires some logic skills. Players can share high scores via the Game Center social network, but participation is optional.

What's it about?

Players attempt to save three princesses by solving a series of connected, but very rudimentary, puzzles. This is largely done by retrieving an item from one screen (or from a character on that screen) and delivering it to another screen. You'll travel to different lands to save the royalty, but the puzzles are largely the same. It's a nod to old-school point-and-click games, but it's one that lacks any difficulty curve.

Is it any good?


While Adventure Time - Legends of Ooo: Big Hollow Princess certainly will thrill fans of the popular Cartoon Network program, it aims a little too low as it reaches for a broad audience. The puzzles are incredibly simple, and that makes the game a short one -- with no replayability. 

Granted, it's not all bad. The voice acting is terrific for the characters that have voices. (Many only speak in captions.) And there's a sense of nostalgia that kicks in for a while as you enjoy the point-and-click puzzle solving. But ultimately, it's not enough -- even for an app with a low $.99 price tag. 

Families can talk about...

  • Take turns asking and solving riddles with kids. Ask them to explain how they arrived at their answers, and explain yours as well.

  • Encourage kids to read mystery books that showcase how deductive reasoning can be used to solve puzzles in a non-cartoon environment.
