Adventure Time: HIKWYSOG!?'s Secret Self Portrait Screen

Review: Adventure Time: Hey Ice King! Why'd You Steal...
by Jonathan Holmes

Adventure Time is currently my favorite show on television. It offers the same kind of nonchalant surrealism, iconic but expressive characters, and the simple delivery of complex themes that got me interested in videogames in the first place. The potential for Adventure Time to make the jump from animated series to engrossing videogame is staggering. Sadly, that potential has been largely squandered up until this point.

When series creator Pendelton Ward announced that he was working with WayForward, one of the most talented and resourceful small developers in the industry, on creating an Adventure Time game for the DS and 3DS, my expectations immediately shot sky high. Unbelievably, those expectations were largely met. At times, they were even exceeded. Too bad it's all over so soon.
