OverviewOverview

The Adventure Pals is a running, jumping and fighting game where you play duo Sparkles the giraffe and Mr. Rock. By making jumps, exploring levels and defeating enemies you try and stop Mr.B from capturing the elderly, including your dad, and turning them into hotdogs. It’s silly fun, but really well animated and great fun for two players working together.

The humour works for kids with slapstick laughs like your giraffe pal using his tongue to fly, but it also has loads of great tongue in cheek jokes for adults too. Like Sesame Street, different ages play it for different reasons and enjoy it all the more for playing it together.

Your primary weapon is a sword that you can level up with new abilities, or swap for other weapons. Sparkles is able to use his tongue to catch onto things, fly and slow your fall, reach to platforms, swim, and help battle enemies.

The game includes five worlds all with unique quests, characters, boss fights and battle arenas. It’s novel because of the Adventure Time animation style and well realised funny characters. The partnership of characters work together in various ways that encourage players to solve challenges in imaginative ways.

Age RatingsAge Ratings

Content Rating

Rated PEGI 7 with Violence. It features non-realistic violence in a child-friendly setting or context, violence that lacks any apparent harm or injury to fantasy or mythical beings and creatures. When hit, enemies flinch. This is paired with a flashing effect. A health bar is slowly drained and once depleted, the character dissolves into small pieces.

Rated for younger players in Australia. Rated General (G) for Very Mild Themes, Very Mild Violence.

Skill Rating

7+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. Players do need good timed jumps and general platform game skill to enjoy this. However, because of the ability to float, as well as play in co-op mode this can be mitigate for some youngsters. The format and characters of the game also make it feel more forgiving than "harder" platform games like Hollow Knight or Ori and the Blind Forest.
