Story & Themes
The basic plot of the game is that Finn and Jake's mortal enemy, the Ice King, is constructing a Garbage Princess out of pieces of rubbish that he's collecting. The heroes must get to the bottom of the problem and stop the Ice King before it's too late.
Adventure Time is a sometimes bewildering story in its weirdness, but consistently drops jewels of wisdom for its young viewers (and older ones, to be fair). At it's core it's a story about growing up and learning about the world around you--both the bad and the good. Its strong emphasis on friendship and caring, and the stereotypes it breaks out of, make it a great choice for kids of all ages. That said, players unfamiliar with the show might be baffled by the game.
