Perhaps the most factually accurate virtual pet game of all time, My Lil’ Bastard turns the adorable Tamagatchis of the world into a hateful and violent hermaphroditic beast. Raise it into a semi-productive adult, if you can endure countless turd clean-ups, booze-fueled rampages, and a heart to heart in which he’s likely to insult your mother. Or just kill it. Whatever.
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!
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 1000 ft 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!
HEADKICKER II: THE FINAL KICK
ADULT SWIM GAMES
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 II 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 II 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.”
ADVENTURE TIME: BMO DREAMO
Jake & Finn’s lovable computer sidekick visits a mysterious 8-bit dreamland. It’s as Beemo once famously said, “a far-too-dangerous incredible adventure for you!” Playable on all modern mobile, tablet and desktop browsers.
TRIBAL DDB / DANNON
When we were approached by Tribal 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. 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.
ROCK PAPER SCISSORS: EXTREME DEATHMATCH
ADULT SWIM GAMES
Rock. Paper. Scissors. The three have long been locked in a never-ending cycle of violence that at once represents the essence and the futility of combat. Choose from Rock, Paper, or Scissors and customize your character with weapons to destroy your opponents. Sure, Paper beats Rock, but what if Rock shoots burning lasers from his exposed core? Scissors will snap, paper will burn, and rocks will bleed in this all-out war for dominance!
POP created the Lucky Eights game to help PUMA give away a much-coveted pair of Shudoh Tangs, the limited edition sport lifestyle shoe designed in conjunction with Shanghai Tang in celebration of the Women’s World Cup. Would be Shudoh Tang winners played the Lucky Eights game on PUMA.com and were eligible to win the auspicious 88th pair of kicks upon achieving a ranking of Shudoh Master. The built-in leaderboard and intensely addictive gameplay made the competition for the prize fierce, fun, and fitting.
ADULT SWIM GAMES
Viva Caligula brings one of the more interesting characters in Roman history to life through that most exciting of mis-educational mediums: the action-adventure top-down beat-em-up. As Caligula, infamous Roman emperor and all around totally crazy guy, players make their way through the streets of ancient Rome on their way to yet another orgy with a song in their heart and a rusty cleaver in their hand as they hack, slash, and generally dismember Romans in an effort to save Rome.
Players encounter a wide selection of unique and macabre attacks (one for each letter key on the keyboard!) befitting the game’s gruesome purpose, and have the ability to enrage Caligula by yelling in the computer’s microphone.
Some summers ago we created Battle Blitz to sync with the World Premiere of Teen Titans, Cartoon Network’s anime-infused remix of the classic DC comic. The game topped CN’s play charts for many summers to follow and inspired the Season 2 episode Winner Takes All. We followed up with Tag Team Titans and Calling All Titans, introducing chibi characters and massive cuteness. All told, our Teen Titans games have been played more than a billion times.
