Bloons Adventure Time TD (iOS, Google Play)

Adventure Time is one of Cartoon Network’s most popular and long-running shows.  Although I think they had their final episode recently.  I have to say that in the 20 plus years I’ve been reviewing games, out of all the licensed ones out there, I think I’ve reviewed more Adventure Time titles than any other.  In fact, I don’t really watch the show, I just get all my knowledge of it from the games, really.  Speaking of things that have been around for a while, there is a game called Bloons that has frequented many web browsers and mobile devices.  It’s game where monkeys pop balloons.  Now Bloons and Adventure Time are teaming up on mobile devices with Bloons Adventure Time TD, a free-to-play tower defense game (that’s what the TD stands for) where balloons have invaded the land of Ooo, and it’s up to Finn, Jake, and the rest of the gang to pop them all!

Ozobot Evo and the Avengers!

Anyone remember those car toys where you could draw a black line on paper and the car would follow it?  I think they first came out in the 70’s but I’m not sure.  Well now those kinds of toys have reached the 21st century with Ozobot Evo.  Not only does this robot follow black lines on paper, but it can also detect other colors as well.  And when those colors are in certain patterns, they act as a code to tell Ozobot what do to, like turn directions, go backward, and much more!  But that’s not all.  Now you can get limited edition skins for Ozobot based on Marvel’s The Avengers characters, which give the little robot even more personality.  Click here to read more!

Steven Universe: Save the Light (PS4, Xbox One)

There is quite a dedicated fanbase for Cartoon Network’s Steven Universe series.  And there’s yet ANOTHER new game out based on the franchise.  Steven Universe: Save the Light is actually a sequel to a mobile game I reviewed a couple of years ago called Attack the Light, which was on mobile devices.  It’s unusual for a mobile game to get a sequel on a console, but that’s just what happened here, as Save the Light is available to download on PS4 and Xbox One (PS4 version reviewed here).

Steven Universe: Dreamland Arcade (iOS, Android)

Steven Universe is one of Cartoon Network’s most popular shows right now.  It’s about a boy named Steven who befriends some gem-based intergalactic warriors and they go on adventures together.  As popular as the show is, there aren’t too many video games based on the franchise, surprisingly.  Until now, as Dreamland Arcade is not one, but nine games in total for mobile devices (reviewed on iPad here).  In one of the episodes, Steven and his friends visit the local Funland arcade.  One of his gem warrior friends gets addicted to a game that bears a striking resemblance to Samba de Amigo.  It’s called Meat Beat Mania and in this mobile game, Steven falls asleep while she plays it.  Then he has a dream where he’s in an arcade featuring games starring him and all his friends.  You get to unlock and play these games that Steven dreamed up.

Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite: Team Capcom

In the second part of my look at the characters in Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite, we’ll go over the fighters on the Capcom side.  I’m way more into video games (obviously, since I review them) than I am comic books, so hopefully I’ll sound a bit more knowledgeable here.  So let’s dive right in.  Oh yeah, some slight Story Mode spoilers here and there may happen, so you’ve been warned.
