Adventure Time Stakes 


I am thankful Family Friendly Gaming was provided a reviewable copy of the Adventure Time Stakes DVD. This is a mini series that contains eight episodes. The episodes are Marceline the Vampire Queen, Everything Stays, Vamps About, The Empress Eyes, May I Come In, Take Her Back, Checkmate, and The Dark Cloud. It takes eighty-eight minutes to watch Adventure Time Stakes.

The storyline revolves around Marceline deciding she no longer wants to be a vampire. She enlists the aid of Princess Bubblegum who cures her of it. Thanks to some clumsiness of Peppermint Butler the vampire essence escapes into the world and releases the five vampires that Marceline had staked through the heart so many hundreds of years ago. Marceline had swallowed their essence and gained their powers.

As the mini series progresses we find out about the past, and when Marceline defeated each of them. She then has to defeat them a second time. What is interesting is how some of the vampires want to do things differently. What is the point of endless battle? Find a new path. Ultimately what Marceline has to determine is if they can be trusted? I won't spoil that for you.

The bonus content on this disc is Animatics, Song Demos, and an Art Gallery. The issues families can have with Adventure Time Stakes are blood, death, souls being sucked, fear crippling, lies, deceit, lack of clothing (numerous characters like to be in their underwear), violence, and borderline sexual deviancy. Spoiler Alert! At the end of the show we are right back where we started. Making the whole thing feel pointless. Remove the vampire essence again and be careful disposing of it - is what I would do.

Adventure Time Stakes shines the light on the past of Marceline some more. It was interesting to see. I love how she wanted to get rid of the vampire essence and lead a normal life in the beginning of Adventure Time Stakes. I also appreciate how she allowed her friends to help her in a time of need. Adventure Time Stakes could have easily been an Adventure Time movie.
