  • The Adventure Time theme brings a lot of charm to the proceedings.
  • The core Ski Safari experience is as enjoyable as ever.


  • Essentially a reskin of Ski Safari, and doesn't add much to the established formula.

Back in May of 2012, Defiant released Ski Safari, an endless-runner focused around riding animals. It was a surprisingly focused offering which stood out from its peers, so it's not so surprising that a hot property like Adventure Time would want to bend the game's addictive core to its own purposes.

Ski Safari: Adventure Time is exactly what you might expect a combination of Ski Safari and Adventure Time to be. The core gameplay remains the same: escape the avalanche by riding animals, collecting coins, performing backflips, upgrading your skills, and completing missions. Instead of hitching a ride on the back of yetis and penguins, however, you'll find yourself riding Jake the Dog, Banana Guards, and tugging on the Ice King's beard as he flaps around in the air.

The visuals contain the same detail and character you'd expect from the cartoon, and most of your journey is punctuated by the exclamations of Finn and the gang as they hurl themselves down the endless mountain of torment.

If you enjoyed Ski Safari, and enjoy Adventure Time, this one's really a no-brainer. It would have been nice to see more of an evolution of the gameplay instead of what amounts to a reskin, but there's enough charm in these characters to cause you to return to the slopes over and over again.
