Adventure Time: Magic Man’s Head Games is a whimsical Gear VR 3D platformer featuring all of your favorite characters from the show. Fans of Adventure Time better keep their eyes peeled in the coming months though, as the game is ‘coming soon’ to Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and PlayStation VR.
If you watch Adventure Time, you know Magic Man is a big jerk – always turning people into things and prancing around like a big magic bully. Using Finn’s sword and and Jake’s stretchy powers to battle the tattered Martian, your mission is ultimately to lift a curse that has turned you, the player, into a tiny 3rd-person balloon. Oh yeah. Your name is Tiny.
Cartoon Network and Turbo Button announced the game’s new multi-headset support via a tweet Saturday, which – much like the Gear VR version – will likely use a system-compatible gamepad for input.

Not long ago creator of the series, Pendleton Ward, started tweeting a rash of VR-themed drawings, showing just how much he actually knew about virtual reality – which turns out to be quite a bit. We’re still waiting for Ward to bankroll the VR-bubbletea-facehole-massage table.

Adventure Time: Magic Man’s Head Games is only $4.99 on the Gear VR store, a steal for such a high quality game that perfectly matched the show’s characteristic animation style with original voice acting from the Adventure Time cast.
The Gear VR version is currently only available in USA and Canada.
