Adult Swim is known for creating some of the most insane grown-up cartoons for late night viewing. The crazed minds at Williams Street have also made a lot of great Adult Swim games across a number of different genres but all sticking to a certain deranged style. Naturally we decided to create a list of Adult Swim games, ranked from best to worst. There's only one way to determine the best Adult Swim games ever made: with your votes.
One of the more popular Adult Swim games out there is Robot Unicorn Attack, with its "endless running" and flamboyant music and style. It dared anyone to try to put it down, and put the song "Always" by Erasure on the map. Another classic is Amateur Surgeon, where the funnily named Alan Probe finds himself performing surgery on random people in distress. Want to get into digital gardening? Hemp Tycoon is going to be the one for you!
Those are all originals, but there are also games about Adult Swim shows. Rick& Morty's Rushed Licensed Adventure, for example, captures the anarchic spirit of the acclaimed show. Whether they're originals or based on cartoons, the greatest Adult Swim games are the ones that sound silly to the point of stupidity, yet you find yourself playing them all the time.
So vote up your favorites below. Don't forget that you can downvote the games that just don't live up to the Adult Swim standard. And if anything's missing, feel free to add it to the list!

Robot Unicorn Attack
Robot Unicorn Attack is an online "endless running" video game featured on the Adult Swim and Flashline Games website. The game was produced by Spiritonin Media Games and was released in February 4, 2010. The game's soundtrack is the 1994 song "Always," by the British band Erasure, in its "2009 mix" version.
Pizza delivery boy Alan Probe’s a regular chap with a big dream: to become a surgeon. One fateful night on the way back from a delivery Alan runs over Dr. Ignacious Bleed, and is forced to perform a delicate operation with only the tools he has on-hand—a stapler, pizza cutter, salad tongs, a lighter and other household implements. From then on, Probe and Bleed begin running a back-alley surgery shop that appeals to the criminal element that can’t seek medical help any other way. Originally developed by Mediatonic.
Robot Unicorn Attack: Heavy Metal2010
I am pretty confident in the accuracy of my statement when I say that Robot Unicorn Attack Heavy Metal isn’t your average distance-based running game. I’m also pretty certain that I am also speaking accurately when saying that this is going to be the only distance-based running game where you get to commandeer a robotic unicorn and guide it through the depths of hell while metal music roars melodically in the background: of this, I am utterly convinced. The success of the original Robot Unicorn Attack is undeniable, and I enjoyed it in spite of my indifference to Erasure’s song ‘Always’, so I knew that I was already in for some quality surrealism when stepping up to the keyboard to play this title. Factor in my once- fierce love for all things metal (the music, not the categorisation of of any element, compound, or alloy adept at conducting heat and electricity), and there was no way I could turn a blind eye to this sequel.
Amateur Surgeon 2
Alan Probe comes out of retirement to perform complicated medical procedures the only way he knows how: poorly.

Mini-games, including mini-golf, a Frogger clone, and a version of Duck Hunt in which the player pelts cardboard ducks with slices of bread from a toaster, also feature prominently in the game's storyline.
Adult Swim has the technology. The Cartoon Network subsidiary has transformed its most fabulously flamboyant Facebook game into Robot Unicorn Attack Evolution. Its most popular game franchise to date with 250 million game plays online, Robot Unicorn Attack has been enhanced for social gamers with new robot animal forms, friendly leaderboards, gifting and more.In other words, it's just like the Robot Unicorn Attack on Facebook that we loved way back in 2010, but given the Six Million Dollar Man treatment (unfortunately sans the awesome sound effect). In this new version of Adult Swim's hit, the three chances at a high score remains unchanged. But what is changed is that, when the unicorn crushes enough stars, it will evolve into a new robot animal and enter a new environment.So far, we've seen robot pandas, wolves, gorillas and even dragons. Of course, Adult Swim took the opportunity with this new version to introduce virtual goods, enhancements for your robot unicorn bought with Fairy Dust (i.e. Facebook Credits). Players can choose up to three power-ups before each game from boosts like triple jumps, explosive horns, gliding and more.
