Looking for that perfect video game for your tween this holiday season? Check out these three new release sure to satisfy any little gamer – and the big ones too!
Adventure Time: Hey, Ice King! Why’d You Steal our Garbage?!!
The first game is based of Cartoon Networks Emmy-award nominated series, Adventure Time: Hey, Ice King! Why’d You Steal our Garbage?!! Follows our favorites Finn and Jake, as the wake up one morning to find their trash stolen by the Ice King!
Now this one is really for not just the tween in your life, but any fan of Adventure Time – How can you not love this cartoon? I don’t do cartoons often, but this one I love. I was excited to see a game finally made from one of my favorites and had great expectations. I was also instantly drawn to this title developed by WayForward, after hearing its design was to be modeled after a classic Zelda game – you know I love Zelda.
In this totally magical, fun filled story written by the creator himself, Pendleton Ward, the Ice King has stolen Finn and Jakes Trash and constructs a Garbage Princess – this all might seem crazy if you’re not a fan of the show. In the action adventure game we find our “hero’s” on a mission to teach that Ice King a lesson and rescue the princess while travelling to a few different places on the map of Ooo and meeting up with many different familiar faces.
I guess you can say it takes its Zelda cues from side missions, dungeon, towns and more, that you will embark upon – sometimes time and time again, as you move across the land/map.

My son was a huge fan of the Ben 10 series when he was younger and still never misses the opportunity to try any Ben 10 titles. His take was the game played smooth, a lot like the protector of Earth title only with fresh characters and base line.
