The parents' guide to what's in this app.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Fionna Fights - Adventure Time is an action/adventure game starring characters from the Cartoon Network program. The violence levels in the game are generally nothing serious, but some power-ups shower enemies with knives or fireballs. Common Sense Media rates the television show as appropriate for ages 10 and up, and the game is purely a promotional vehicle for the show.

What's it about?
Players banish Fionna's enemies by simply touching them on the screen. A miss, or deliberately letting one get by, depletes the heroine's energy, which (generally) cannot be replenished. When her energy levels hit zero, the game is over. Players earn points for taking out enemies, with bonus points for eradicating two or more at a time. Those points are converted into rubies, which can be used after a game to buy upgraded weapons and potions.
Is it any good?
FIONNA FIGHTS - ADVENTURE TIME certainly isn't a bad game, by any means, but once you've played it a bit, there's not a lot of reason to pick it up again. The core play mechanic of tapping on various enemies is fun, but it gets old -- even with the game's assorted power-ups, which give Fionna a short burst of additional power.
Fans of the cartoon series might enjoy this more than most, but the game generally fails to capture the quirky, funny qualities of the show. Combine that with its one-note gameplay, and this is one you can easily bypass.
