The parents' guide to what's in this app.
What 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.
