First look at the new Adventure Time and Regular Show games
Adventure Time: Explore the Dungeon Because I DON’T KNOW! (3DS, Wii U, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC) looks nothing like the first 3DS game — that’s because this time it’s a Diablo-style, top-down hack’n slash with four-player support and over 100 dungeons.
Polygon previewed the game and noted that you can play as a variety of characters from the cartoon, including Jake and Finn of course:
"Cinnamon Bun is a kind of tank character who can take more damage, whereas Marceline is a wizard-like character who can absorb red projectiles from afar. Each character has innate abilities, so when we approached a boss (the Demon Cat with the power of approximate knowledge), we were able to assign Marceline to the enemy’s tail because it was shooting out red beams, while the melee characters approached it from the front and sides.
Each character also has an Imagination Meter which, when filled up, can be used for special attacks. Some characters’ special attacks wipe the screen of enemies, while others — like Cinnamon Bun — drop food items all over the screen, which could then be picked up by teammates and used to restore health.”
Regular Show: Mordecai and Rigby in 8-Bit Land, though, will be 2D, which makes sense seeing as it pays homage to the NES. But Polygon points out that it’s more than just a traditional platformer, as the twist in the 3DS game is you can switch to modes that are more like a sidescrolling shoot’em up and a top-down Fester’s Quest-esque shooter.
Both release this fall!
