Adventure Time: Finn & Jake Investigations is a 2015 action adventure video game developed by Vicious Cycle Software[1] under license from Cartoon Network Interactive. It was published by Little Orbit for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Wii U, and Nintendo 3DS.[2] This is the fourth game based on the animated television series Adventure Time following The Secret of the Nameless Kingdom, and the first action adventure title in the series presented in full 3D graphics.[2] The game was first announced on April 21, 2015,[3] and released on October 20, 2015 in North America,[1][2] and was released on November 6, 2015 in Europe and Australia.

The game was removed from digital storefronts on March 31, 2018 due to the expiration of Little Orbit's Adventure Time license.[4]

Gameplay[edit]

In this game, players can check out "Land of Ooo locales, talk to characters, sharpen their creative puzzle-solving skills, defeat bad guys and just have fun." Loosely based on the TV show's sixth season, the game features "a focus on exploring, investigating, and puzzle-solving. Thanks to the discovery of an assignment printing machine called the 'tickertype,' Finn and Jake decide to become detectives like Joshua and Margaret (Finn and Jake's parents). Finn's sword will see a bit of action too, allowing [players] to fill the Tree House treasure room full of enemy drops."[2]

Reception[edit]

It has a score of 66% on Metacritic.[5] Nintendo Life awarded it a score of 7 out of 10, saying "While it might prove too basic for more advanced players, younger players and families should have a fun time questing with dog and human. Big fans of the show, of course, should not feel so afraid to give this one a try, either."[6] Nintendo World Report awarded it a score of 7 out of 10, saying "By default, I feel as if this is the best Adventure Time video game so far. It's not perfect, and it's a little on the easy side, but as an Adventure Time fan, it made me smile." [7]
