Details for Adventure Time: The Secret of the Nameless Kingdom have come in, courtesy of a new preview on Joystiq. Here’s what we know about the game:

– Inspired by Zelda: A Link to the Past
– This was due partly to player feedback that criticized Explore the Dungeon’s gameplay for being repetitive
– Also due to feedback from series creator Pendleton Ward
– Ward had “hinted” to Little Orbit that he wanted the next game to be more Zelda-like
– Bigger overworld, dungeon puzzles, light RPG elements
– Can buy health upgrades, damage upgrades or new items
– These can grant hero Finn additional abilities
– Dungeons and temples are constructed around a central theme
– One of these areas is a castle of music
– Here Finn could discover images of various instruments with numbers next to them – clues to a puzzle deeper in the dungeon
– Another puzzle: Finn needs to hit colored switches, which raises/lowers gates in his way
– Puzzles will be designed with trial and error in mind
– This is to appeal to the game’s main demographic, 8 to 12-year-old children
– Art style blends smoothly-drawn backgrounds and environments with pixelated characters and animation
– Designed to appeal to the secondary audience of 18 to 24-year olds
