Like Minecraft Dungeons, just a bit harder.

Adventure Time: Explore the Dungeon Because I DON'T KNOW is a simple dungeon crawler about Finn, Jake, Marceline, and Cinnamon Bun defeating prisoners to the end of the area. The violence here may look similar to fans of the series. The characters use swords, axes, guns, whips, and their fists and feet to fend off enemies, but there's no blood or gore. As characters, they are all loyal to Princess Bubblegum completing quests and slashing out monsters and bosses with bravery.

Great role models
Too much violence

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (3 ):

It's certainly not the best game of the year, but younger fans of the TV series should enjoy slaying enemies together with up to three siblings or friends in front of the same television or computer screen (note: the Nintendo 3DS game is virtually the same but without the multiplayer element). Choosing to play as your favorite character from the show -- such as stretchy Jake or brave Finn -- is a blast, though there's a bit of redundancy between the dungeons, and the game's pixelated "retro" visuals won't appeal to everyone. As you work toward saving Candy Kingdom, gamers also can unlock a ton of extra content, new characters and abilities, and some secrets along the way. Silly and quirky like the TV show it's based on, Adventure Time: Explore the Dungeon Because I Don't Know isn't a bad co-op adventure -- especially for the relatively low price of admission.
