Flash Game of the Week: Rick and Morty’s Rushed Licensed Adventure

If you are a fan of the Adult Swim animated show Rick and Morty please stop reading this and go play Rick and Morty’s Rushed Licensed Adventure RIGHT NOW! You can also check out our playthrough of the first chapter below.

For those that haven’t heard of the show created by Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland please continue reading. Rick and Morty’s Rushed Licensed Adventure is one of the funniest and most faithful adaptations I have ever seen of a TV show. The game has the same sense of humor as the show, and you will spend most of your time just laughing at each new joke or reference.

There are currently three chapters available with a fourth one coming soon. Each chapter will take you between 10-15 minutes on your first play through. There are also hidden achievements you earn as an incentive to play again.

Each chapter has its own story: the first chapter has Morty help Rick gather supplies to suck up portals with the second chapter having Morty get shrunk and stuck in the fridge to the third chapter having you fix Summer.

The humor here is spot on and will make you laugh just as much as you would if you were watching the show. Rick makes jokes about Morty’s uselessness and frequently breaks the fourth wall. There are also a bunch of random objects in the game that when clicked will yield a funny quip by either Rick or Morty. For example, in the first chapter you have Morty complain about how he can’t wash a sock. You will need at least two playthroughs to get all of the jokes that are thrown at you.

Rick and Morty’s Rushed Licensed Adventure plays out like a standard point-n-click adventure and the gameplay works well with the story and humor. The gameplay is comparable to classic adventure game like Full Throttle or Day of the Tentacle as you have to use items in order to solve puzzles. As the game is mostly about exploration, you get to find new jokes or gags as you progress through each chapter.

What makes this game awesome is how much the level looks like their TV counterparts but in a 16-bit style. As the mainstays of the Smith house are shown in 2D glory such as Rick’s garage workshop to the living room. The game looks and feels like an episode of the show and that adds to the fun value of the experience.

Rick and Morty’s Rushed Licensed Adventure is a fun game that is just as funny as any episode of the show. Fans will have plenty to laugh at and newcomers will have a great introduction to the series. This is a quick and hilarious game that everybody should at least take a look at.
