Webgame Wednesday: Adventure Time’s Ninja Castle

What if they held a 48-hour video game programming contest dedicated entirely to Cartoon Network's awesome series "Adventure Time"? Good news! They did! The Adventure Time Game Jam just wrapped up, resulting in dozens of Finn-and-Jake-centric games. As is typical for this kind of thing, most of the games are short and rather unpolished. But there are a few gems mixed in there. A lot of the games require downloads, but there are a handful of Flash-based titles. Among the standouts is Ninja Castle. In this clever puzzle game, Finn and Jake must navigate the castle of the Ninja King and beat him up. You move the heroes by clicking on adjacent rooms. The objective is to maneuver them so they both reach the Ninja King at the same time. The mechanics take a moment or two to get used to, but once you get the hang of it, it's a colorful little mindbender.

You should probably be watching more "Adventure Time" on Cartoon Network. Trust me, it's good for you. If you're already a fan, how about checking out the new Adventure Time Game, Rhythm Heroes? It is, as the title suggests, a rhythm game. Sing along to the beat DJ Party Pat is laying out so you can advance to later levels. Before long, you'll be performing alongside Marceline the Vampire Queen and beating the Ice King at his own game. Mathematical!

I Am Into This Stuff!

“Adventure Time” on Cartoon Network

Television is a vast wasteland filled with discarded husks of sitcoms, endless reality shows and the occasional oasis of entertainment. It’s a lot of territory to cover. As a result, I can’t always be there on the ground floor to alert people about the coolest, hippest shows about to premiere. I have, for example, only recently discovered the joy and wonder that is Cartoon Network’s “Adventure Time.” I’d browsed the occasional episode since its debut in 2010 and found it interesting enough—but I recently hit some sort of critical mass and am now a rabid, proselytizing fan.
