Cartoon Network Battle Crashers is a side scrolling fighting game where you can play as characters from your favorite Cartoon Network shows! You transport to different areas from shows like Adventure Time, Clarence, and Steven Universe and battle enemies by switching back and forth between characters in your party. Each character has their own unique abilities to help you navigate the map and fight enemies. As you go along, you collect fruit to heal yourself and gems to activate your special abilities. Boss fights at the end of each level also allow for you to use some strategy in taking down the enemy. 

Cartoon Network Battle Crashers can be played solo or with up to three additional players. This game is rated E 10+ and Learningworks for Kids stands by this rating. Younger players may need assistance with reading directions on screen.

Cartoon Network Battle Crashers helps kids practice and improve the following skills:

Working Memory: Recalling and retaining information in our minds while working.

Fighting games work well for practicing Working Memory skills because the player needs to keep button functions in their mind while they are fighting enemies in real time. If you are too busy thinking about what buttons you need to press, you leave yourself open to attack from the enemies around you. Players who struggle with working memory may find that they need to practice fighting during the easier levels until they have the button combinations down. Working Memory also helps when switching between characters. The player needs to keep each character’s special abilities in their mind while fighting and recognize when they need to call in a different character to help out in the fight. 

Flexibility: Adapting and adjusting to changing conditions and expectations.

Depending on where you are on the map, certain characters have special abilities that you can use to make the game easier. For example, Gumball fights with a vacuum which can be used to suck up harmful gasses while Steven Universe has the power to smash gemstones. The player needs to be flexible enough to navigate between the characters when the situation calls for it. Players who struggle with flexibility may find that they take more damage than necessary or don’t collect as many gems as they could have. The game does provide hints as to when the player can switch characters for different effects, giving players a gentle reminder about being flexible with character use.
