Pokémon Playhouse (iOS, Android)

Kids love Pokémon.  And they have for more than two decades now.  But surprisingly, with all the kid-focused Pokémon games out there now, there is very little for the younger crowd.  Sure there have been a few games like Pokémon Channel on GameCube and the PokePark games on Wii.  But not really much for the preschool set.  Until now.  Introducing Pokémon Playhouse, a game designed for the smallest of Pokémon fans.  It’s available to download on iOS and Android devices (reviewed on iPad here).  Best of all, it’s a free to play game with NO in game purchases or ads!

The Amazing World of Gumball: Wrecker’s Revenge (iOS, Android)

The Amazing World of Gumball is one of Cartoon Network’s most popular shows right now.  It’s about a cat named Gumball who goes to middle school and lives with his blended family of cats and rabbits and his best friend/brother goldfish.  I’ve never been a big fan of the show, but I do like the mixed media art style.  Now you can play as Gumball in Wrecker’s Revenge, a free-to-play downloadable game on iOS and Android (reviewed on iPad here).

LEGO Dimensions Beetlejuice Fun Pack

Beetlejuice! Beetlejuice! Beetlejuice!  I remember watching this movie a couple of times when I was a kid, but I haven’t seen it since then. It was pretty popular, though.  So much so that they had a Beetlejuice Saturday morning cartoon when I was a kid as well.  It wasn’t my favorite, but I do remember it being of higher quality than most of the other Saturday morning cartons at the time.  Plus I think I read it won an Emmy.  Now the Ghost with the Most is haunting LEGO Dimensions with the Beetlejuice Fun Pack.  It’s available to play on nearly all current game consoles, but reviewed on Wii U here.

Ninjago is a popular toy line from the building block giants at LEGO.  It features a group of heroic teen ninjas as they battle all sorts of bad guys to defend Ninjago City.  Ninjago has spawned a massive toy line, a TV cartoon series, and now a full-length animated feature film now in theaters!  And now you can play as the characters and relive the action of the new movie with The LEGO Ninjago Movie Video Game.  It’s available for nearly all the current home video game consoles, but reviewed on PS4 here.

LEGO Dimensions The Powerpuff Girls Team Pack & Fun Pack

Sugar, Spice, and Everything Nice.  These were the ingredients chosen to make the perfect little girls.  But Professor Utonium accidentally added an extra ingredient…Chemical X.  Plus a few LEGOs for good measure.  Thus The Powerpuff Girls Team Pack and Fun Pack for LEGO Dimensions was born!  The Powerpuff Girls was one of Cartoon Network’s most successful and well-known shows.  So much so that it got a remake last year (although it isn’t as good as the original).  Now you can relive the adventures of Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup with add-ons for LEGO Dimensions, available for nearly all current game consoles but reviewed on Wii U here.

LEGO Dimensions Teen Titans Go! Team Pack & Fun Pack

Teen Titans Go! is one of Cartoon Network’s most popular shows right now.  It has to be because nearly every time I turn on the TV, that show is on.  I’ve never been a big fan of Teen Titans, both the original cartoon and this new one, but I’m sure the new one is popular with kids thanks to its irreverent humor.  And now you can relive the adventures of the wacky super hero teens with the Teen Titans Go! Team Pack and Fun Pack for LEGO Dimensions.  It’s available for nearly all current game consoles, but reviewed on Wii U here.

Adventure Time Run: The Ooo Expedition (iOS, Android)

Adventure Time is one of Cartoon Network’s most popular animated programs (is it even still on?), and out of all the cartoon licensed games out there, I think I’ve reviewed more Adventure Time ones than any other in the 20 plus years I’ve been doing this!  Many of these titles imitate other genres of games, like point and click adventures, card games, 2-D platformers, top-down Zelda-like quests, and more!  And some, especially on tablets, are just spinoffs of existing games, like Adventure Time Ski Safari.  And now the show is getting the Temple Run treatment.  Adventure Time Run is available to download free-to-play on iOS and Android devices (reviewed on iPad here).

WWE Tap Mania (iOS, Android)

I have some friends who are into professional wrestling, but I’ve never been able to get into it myself.  I don’t have anything against professional wrestling, and I think the physical prowess of those athletes is amazing, but it’s just not my cup of tea.  But every now and then I’ll try watching or playing something related to wrestling to see what it is my friends like about the whole thing.  Recently SEGA released a downloadable endless clicker called WWE Tap Mania, so I decided to try that.  Of course, that might’ve been a mistake as I’m not a big fan of endless clickers either, but let’s see how it goes.  The game is available on iOS and Android devices, but reviewed on iPad here.
