Explore the Land of Ooo with Finn and Jake as they take on different cases in this all-new, real-time, fully 3D adventure game — Adventure Time – Finn and Jake Investigations available now!
The game begins when Finn and Jake decide to carry on the profession of their parents, who were Professional Investigators. Each case will take you to a different part of the Land of Ooo to investigate mysterious and strange events. From the Candy and Fire Kingdoms to Magic City and Castle Lemongrab.
Cuber will run you through a tutorial at the start of the game and pop in at certain points with other helpful gameplay hints. You mainly control Finn in the game, while Jake can help you in the combat rounds or to get to areas that are out of reach. During combat rounds, you can team-up with Jake once the team-up meter is filled. There are 4 different modes to use, like Battle Suit Jake.
Gameplay is mostly point and click as you search the area for the objects you need to advance to the next task. Button icons will appear when you are near an interactive object or item that you need. Some of these items need to be combined with another item or more, like bottle, water, soap and circle thingy to make a huge bubble to float on.
If you are a fan of the show, you will recognize many familiar faces and locations. Some new and fan favorite characters in the game include: BMO, Princess Bubblegum, Ice King, Abracadaniel, Lumpy Space Princess, Peppermint Butler, Tree Trunks, Lemongrab, Marceline, Flame Princess, Gunter, Starchy, Cinnamon Bun, Magic Man, and more… even Snail.
Even the entire original show cast from the animated series provide the voiceovers in the game.
The five cases in the game are loosely based on some of the Adventure Time episodes, such as Five Short Graybles. It’s kinda funny to hear LSP singing the song, “These Lumps,” with the band.
You can explore the Treehouse Trophy Room during one of the cases and see all the loot you picked up from your combat rounds.
I’m a fan of the Adventure Time animated show, so I really enjoyed the game. The only thing is that it is pretty easy to play and a bit short. It took me about about a week, a couple of hours a day, to finish the game. There were a couple places in the game that I got a little bit stuck on, but didn’t take me too long to figure it out. The version I played this on was the Nintendo 3DS, which didn’t seem that different from the console versions. Graphics were a bit different, since it is the 3DS, but gameplay was very much the same when I saw it at E3 earlier this year.
This is one of the better Adventure Time games that feels like you are playing, and interacting, in an actual episode from the show. Ending credits of the game plays the ending theme of Adventure Time too.
