Powerpuff-Thumb

A lot has happened since 1998, so here's a refresher: Mojo Jojo is still up to shenanigans, Townsville is still in trouble, and it's still up to the Powerpuff Girls to save the day. Rather than taking to the TV screen, this time they're kicking butt in their own 2D sidecrolling adventure.

That evil rampaging ape has shot our trio with his Disremember Ray, separating the girls and causing them to forget how to use their powers. Players will have to reunite the team and blast through everything that tries to get in their way. This may sound violent, but it's not really all that different from the show on Cartoon Network.

The Powerpuff Girls: Defenders of Townsville launched for the PC a few months ago, and now it's arriving for Android and iOS. The controls have been tweaked to suit a touchscreen, but other than that, it looks like the same game. For $3.99, you get the full experience. Enter the Play Store and take flight below.

      Why? It's PPG, come on!!

        So? Why should I be excited about a paid mobile game based on a cartoon for kids?

        • joeljfischer

          Because the game is actually pretty good. It's made by RadianGames, who has made many other solid games on Android and iOS.

            If I wanted a good 2D scrolling shooter I'd invest twice as much in Sine Mora, which is clearly a superior title

          • joeljfischer

            Well, since you haven't played this one, that's a tough call to "clearly" make. Especially since you "clearly" don't even know what genre this game is. (It's 2D metroid-like with shooter elements)

      what?

  • Michael

    Why are they using the old powerpuff girls if they are doing a reboot? wouldn't it make more sense to use the new ones?

    • Tomasz Kuczynski

      It looks like the new ones ... or rather looks different then the old ones.

      • Crispin Swickard

        The default is the new style, but you just change it to the old style in the options. At least for the version in steam. I would imagine this one would be the same.

    • joeljfischer

      You can switch between new or old, if I remember correctly.

  • PPG fan

    Is there a PPG equivalent of the brony? Because I'd like to know how to label myself.

  • iPhone fans

    hmm I think I'll give it a try

  • WhyWai

    just to make sure before I buy this. No IAP?
