'Adventure Time' role-playing battles come to your smartphone

Jon Fingas

There are more than a few Adventure Time mobile games out there, but deep games? Not as many. However, YouGnome and Cartoon Network want to improve this state of affairs. They've just launched Champions and Challengers, a tactical game for Android and iOS that has you gathering and outfitting a team from over 70 heroes (including Finn, Jake, Fionna, Cake and Princess Bubblegum) and pitting them against rivals in Final Fantasy-style, turn-based role-playing battles. There are over 120 battles in the solo game, where you take on the Dice Lord, but you can also square off against other players online.

This is a free-to-play game, so don't be surprised there's a hard sell on in-app purchases. With that said, it looks like there's a fair amount of depth here -- you'll hopefully have a lot to do without having to fork over some cash. If nothing else, this is the kind of experience you'd expect with an Adventure Time game -- you're actually, you know, adventuring.
