'Adventure Time' game trailer shows influence of classics on cartoon tie-in
It's more than a little bit Zelda in its influences, but the new clip from DS game Adventure Time: Hey Ice King! Why'd You Steal Our Garbage?! is still totally adventuresome.
Ever-stretchy Jake the Dog is Finn's magic weapon, all ginormous fists and spaghetti arms when bopping the odd baddies that block the garbage recovery trail.
That's the side-scrolling action part and, combined with a top-down viewpoint for general wandering about, Adventure Time's homage to NES game Zelda II: The Adventure of Link is clear -- quite fitting, given the likeness of Jake and Finn's consle friend Beemo to a later Nintendo console, the Game Boy.
