A lot or a little?

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

Ease of Play

Players can choose tap controls or tilt controls. Play is challenging but fun.


Mild cartoon violence -- namely punching anything and everything -- is central to play.


Other apps are advertised behind a parent lock screen that requires answering a simple multiplication problem. The game is a promo tool for the Cartoon Network show.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Time Tangle - Adventure Time features characters from the Cartoon Network show in a quest-driven endless-runner adventure game. It's not particularly violent, except for the fact that hero Finn has to punch anything that gets in his way as he chases, rescues, delivers, and collects, according to each mission. Kids can choose between tilt controls or touch controls in options, and several languages are available. Players can connect to Game Center, though that's optional.

What's it about?

In classic Adventure Time fashion, Finn sees a time portal and figures there's "probably a lot of dangerous, awesome stuff through this portal," so he goes in. He's met with a quest -- to either rescue a friend, chase an enemy, collect something, or deliver something. He fights his way through as the runner, punching, jumping, and collecting coins. At the end of his quests, he fights the boss. Cut scenes explain each character and item, and more of each are unlocked as kids play. Jake, Lady Rainicorn, and other friends come along to help out occasionally, too, adding to the fun.

Is it any good?

If they like the silly fun of the show, kids should definitely enjoy TIME TANGLE - ADVENTURE TIME. The character voices and personalities are very true to the show (this one's voiced by all the original actors), and the quests are very playable at the early levels and quite challenging at the later ones. The fun varies, too, between the different types of quests, so kids are drawn in to the stories -- rescuing friends, chasing the bad guys, or collecting food or necessities. Parents will appreciate that it includes no in-app purchases, which is really refreshing for an endless-runner adventure game. Kids unlock new characters through play, with no pressure to buy.

Talk to your kids about ...
