Adult Swim has a catalog of strange and weird mobile games. One of the most distinctive of these games is Peter Panic. This game’s core gameplay is inspired by Nintendo’s WarioWare series. However, this game sets itself apart with its features. Peter Panic is basically a musical. The characters sing exposition, tutorial phrases, and even information about in-app purchases.
In this game, you play as Peter, who is an aspiring young director that wants to bring theater back to his quaint hometown. What you need to do is to convince the locals to join the cause and attend your theater. In order for this to happen, you need to pass a series of challenging mini games. While on your quest to get help and get recruits for your theater, you will shop at various places in the town, where you will have to play a bunch of quick-hit games.
The most distinctive characteristic of Peter Panic is the music. Whenever Peter gets to a new location, he sings out a conversation with anyone he’s trying to recruit. The songs are well written and entertainingly performed. Thus, you will enjoy playing the game, if only for the great music. It goes without saying that you will have to play the game with the sound on, or with headphones.
Another thing that is worth loving about the game is the fact that it is completely free. Peter panic does not feature any pop-up, video or banner ads. However, there is an in-app purchase available, but it only comes in if you plan to save your progress. If you want to play the game through in one sitting, then you have nothing to fear. However, if you want to save your progress for later, you will have to pay $3 for the save function. Otherwise you would have to start afresh.
