Adventure Time: Pirates of the Enchiridion is a cross between an adventure game and an action RPG released on July 17, 2018. The game is being developed by Climax Studios, also known for their Assassin’s Creed Chronicles games for those familiar. And like how the Assassin’s Creed Chronicles takes its inspiration from the original series, Assassin’s Creed, Adventure Time: Pirates of the Enchiridion takes our heroes from Adventure Time, Finn and Jake, on a spin-off adventure.

Players will be taking the characters on a journey to find out why the land of Ooo has been submerged underwater as nobody seems to know why. During the adventure, players can find themselves traveling the seas in search of clues and friends. Looking at gameplay pictures, the community and I have found that the game looks very similar to The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker.
As the title would suggest, a lot of the story and traveling seems that it will take place on the sea and visiting islands/areas to meet new friends and enemies will be the core gameplay of the game. Players will be able to recruit canon characters from the series such as BMO and Marceline, able to aid in combat with their own unique perks and skill sets. The game description says that heroes can be upgraded with ultimate hero abilities unlocked and to be used in battle. A plethora of items, spells, potions, etc. can be used and found as well during the journey as well.
The Game Mechanics
The combat is turn-based as players can have up to a party of four when fighting enemies. Each character has their own specialty as some play as supports, others as the DPS, and etc. New abilities, which I briefly touched on before, can be found by doing side-quests for specific NPCs depending on the character.
Admittedly, there is nothing new about the combat from the standard turn-based RPG but to be fair, it’s not bad either. The traveling is also more tedious than expected as there is no value to traveling the high seas when that’s what you’re literally doing the whole time, just traveling. There are zones in the game where some feel very interactive while other completely barren.
Thus, the game can feel like a chore at times but the graphics are at least appreciable as it stays close to the cartoon. However, of the gameplay interactions, I found that interrogating characters throughout the world to be most enjoyable. Finn and Jake team up as “good cop & bad cop” to interrogate characters which had me going with a couple chuckles.
The game at its core is really easy whether it be the puzzles or mini-games the game has you play and not being the biggest fan of the cartoon sure made me feel bored at certain parts of the game. However, it was a solid RPG for any fan to pick up and was just another mediocre showing in my opinion.
