Introduction:

This fully 3D Adventure Time game gives you the chance to completely explore the land of Ooo with Finn and Jake. After discovering a ticker-tape machine that prints out mysteries, Finn and Jake go into the investigation business. In a series of connected adventures, they explore iconic AT locations like the Candy Kingdom and Wizard City to solve the mysterious cases. Along the way, they'll interact with all of the best-loved characters from the show. This is the first Adventure Time game that features the entire voice case from the cartoon. The focus is on exploration and puzzle-solving, but there are plenty of chances for Finn to bust out his sword and go nuts too. Between cases, you can even kick back in the treehouse, hang out with BMO, and pile up tons of treasure.

Abbreviated Walkthrough:
Adventure Time: Finn and Jake Investigations has an autosave feature. Meaning there is not chapter select or any save slots. So if any collectables are missed or forget to complete something. You will be forced to start a new game.

Now the main focus here is to complete all 5 cases, Sweet Sweet Magic, Lumpy Ice Princess, Sour Notes, Everything Must Go, and Album (Re)cover. As you complete these cases you will unlock majority of the achievements as they are story related. Also advise to listen to The Grayable's tutorial as he will teach you how to interact with certain objects and how to combine objects with one another. It's recommended to follow the step by step walkthrough above to help you solve these cases, find collectibles and help complete the game without missing any achievements.

There are also a total of 8 missable achievements, "I See You", "Snail's Pace", "Wrong Number", "Radio Starchie", "Stretch Goals", "Combo Time", "New to Ooo", "Flimpin' The Diode", so following a walkthrough will definitely help you not miss any of these and avoiding a second playthrough.

A complete step by step walkthrough can be found HERE by PT user themindisacity.

Conclusion:

Adventure Time: Finn and Jake Investigation is a very easy 1000 that can be completed in an afternoon following a step by step walkthrough. If you are a fan of the Adventure Time show then this is must play for you.

    • Snail 12: At the very end of this investigation you will burn a bill of sale. BEFORE YOU DO THIS, go to the yard sale table farthest from Marceline. The snail will be sitting on top of the table.

    Fifth investigation:

    • Snail 13: When you go back to the Wizard City, the Snail will be sitting on the stairs of the shop between Ron James' shop and the vending machine.
    • Snail 14: This snail is in the Palace of the Ice King. The snail is located in the bottom of the Ninja Armory Room, the same location where you used underwear to fire old pizza at the rebelling penguin.

    There will be another point in another investigation where you will return to the phone booth and order a pizza. The option to call random numbers will not be available. So make sure to do this during the very first investigation.

    It can be highly unlikely that you will complete the game without performing a 15-hit combo, but can happen.
