Great Game, But It’s Not For Younger Kids

I Like This Game, It Features Characters From The Cartoon Network Regular Show. But It’s Not For Younger Kids. Let Me Give You Multiple Reasons On Why This Game Isn’t For Kids Under 10 1. There’s Lots Of Cussing Like “Stupid” “Butt” “Ass” “God” “Hate” “F*cking” “Suck” “Frick” “Lump” 2. There’s Scary Characters. A Character From The Episode “Just Set Up The Chairs” Appeared. The Characters Name Is “Destroyer Of Worlds” It Shoots Fire From It’s Eyes And Kills Mordecai And Rigby. Mordecai And Rigby Turn Into “Zombies.” 3. There’s Consumerism. Since This Has Characters From The “Regular Show” Mordecai And Rigby Play To Solve A Puzzle And Has A Character From The 2nd Episode Of The 1st Season. The Episodes Title Name Is “Just Set Up The Chairs.” This Is Okay For Anyone 10+ Years Old. Better Than Many Of The Other Video Games I’ve Played. Minecraft,Bloons,Happy Tree Friends Deadeye Derby,Looney Tunes World Of Mayhem,Fantasia And Kirby.

This title has:

Educational value
Great messages
Great role models
Easy to play/use
Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much consumerism

Is It Any Good?

Regular Show: Mordecai and Rigby in 8-bit Land is, in a word, adequate. It's clearly designed for fans of the TV show, and there are many references to it. On its own merits, the game follows a standard formula of running through levels and squashing enemy creatures. The visual style sets the game apart, with crudely drawn animals and aliens along with odd-looking characters and scenery. It does enough to keep the experience interesting, but barely. The background music tends to get repetitive, and it doesn't feel like there's enough of a challenge to make finishing the game as satisfying as it could be.

That being said, there's nothing inherently wrong with the game, and it should hold any player's interest long enough to be worth the purchase.
