Brak is an oddly lovable character who first emerged on the scene as the hapless sidekick in Cartoon Network’s hit postmodern cartoon “Space Ghost Coast to Coast”. Brak proved to be so popular that he soon had his own show and now, thanks to THIS IS POP, his own videogame.
Headkicker 2 is a tongue-in-cheek side-scrolling beat-em-up featuring Brak and his surly alien buddy Zorak, who must fight their way through 6 levels of relentless enemies in order to rescue Brak’s mom from slimy arch villain Mobab. With it’s terribly perfect pixelated graphics, over the top hand to hand combat, and hilarious non-sequiturs, Headkicker 2 has the same relationship to classic videogames as the Brak Show has to classic sitcoms. As Brak himself might say: “Thank you, magic toenail! I salute you.”
RED BULL FOCUS
Red Bull Focus is a quick-fire HTML5 experience that’s as easy to play as it is difficult to master. Simply wait a few tense milliseconds until the image discs line up then tap to set them in place. Players are scored on how closely aligned the discs are with the background, with the best possible score being absolute zero. As if nailing perfect lineups wasn’t tricky enough on its own, Focus pits players against a timer with a tight fuse and nothing to lose, slowly setting the fate of those not up to the challenge. The intensity never skips a beat and short play sessions make replay and beating previous scores a must.
Activated in Brazil, Canada and now the Netherlands with a reboot that captures the high-speed intensity and extreme competition of the world’s most recognized driving challenge – Formula 1!

JWT / DANNON
When we were approached to create a game that would help Dannon launch their new smoothie drink, Frusion, we leapt at the chance to create a game where you beat breakfast foods senseless. Who wouldn’t, really? The result, Breakfast Brawl, a wildly popular advergame. And keep in mind this sage bit of wisdom one fan has when dealing with your opponents: “I punched him a lot and didn’t let him punch me.” Very wise advice, iKickBagels, very wise indeed.
ADULT SWIM GAMES
Adult Swim gamers are a hardcore, savvy bunch. You probably won’t find them playing Farmville, even if Mom is on their friends list. But we know that every one of them still craves a hit of that sweet, sweet dopamine dripping down like harvest honey. They may live for carnage and mayhem, but deep down inside they have that urge – to buy seeds and harvest plants.
So we created Hemp Tycoon, where players produce a crop as stimulating to the senses as it is nourishing to the body. Truly, hemp is a miracle plant. As initiates know, with the right arcane skills you can turn it into anything.
We turned it into the most popular game on AdultSwim.com.
INTERGALACTIC SNEAKER RESCUE OMEGA
It is the year 8100. Omega Striper, the secret weapon of the Foot Locker Planet, has turned the tide of the Intergalactic Footwear Conflict single-handedly. However, the enemy has retaliated and shattered the Foot Locker Planet’s precious Power Crystals with a Discombobulation Ray! Players choose one of several battle-ready Foot Locker sneakers and blast through several levels of intense shoot-em-up action as they attempt to recover the lost Power Crystals from the fathest corners of the universe. The future of the Foot Locker Planet hangs in the balance!
GUMBALL SPLASH MASTER
When Cartoon Network came to us with the mission of creating an online game that’d help launch The Amazing World of Gumball we jumped at the chance. Jumped from the top of a 1000ft diving board that is!
The result? A cannonballing competition of epic proportions, approaching a half a billion plays. Easy to learn. Replayable. Humorous. Exciting. Strip down to your tighty whities and get wet here!
