Another one of Cartoon Network’s most popular shows, Adventure Time, is about a boy named Finn and his talking magical dog friend Jake as they go on crazy adventures in the land of Ooo. In their newest game: Time Tangle, Finn mistakenly breaks the Time Totem and must dash through portals to repair time. This third-person, continuously running action game is available for download on iOS devices, Google Play, and Amazon (review on iPad here).
One of Cartoon Network’s most popular animated series is Regular Show, and it’s all about a rag-tag group of characters who work at a city park where crazy stuff happens on a regular basis. In one of the episodes, a rival park starts a prank war, and the whole episode parodies war movies like Rambo and Terminator. This game is based on that episode. Gene, the rival park manager, steals a time machine so he can go to the past and win the prank war for good. Now you must help Mordecai, Rigby, Skips, Muscle Man, and the rest of the gang take their park back in this very creative tower defense style game. The Great Prank War is available to download on iOS devices, Google Play, and the Amazon Appstore (reviewed on iPad here).
There are some folks out there who are really into fighting games. I mean, REALLY into fighting games. Heck, people have big publicized fighting game competitions every year, that’s how big it is.

Recently I ordered a birthday present for a close relative online, but it wasn’t enough to get free shipping. So I ordered Tekken Tag Tournament 2 for Wii U to go along with it. I’m not a big fan of Tekken games, but I’ve been known to buy a couple of them if they have a few modes and features I like, and if the price is low enough. For instance, I got Tekken 4 when it was cheap, simply because hidden in the game was an old Namco arcade 3-D space shooter called StarBlade. The Wii U edition of Tekken Tag Tournament 2 had some Nintendo-centric modes and features I was curious about trying, but not curious enough to pay full price for. But I found it cheap enough now online, and I’ve been playing it off and on. So in honor of that, here is a blog about my top ten favorite Tekken fighters!

It’s available to download on iOS devices, and reviewed on iPad here.
