The sun is shining down on glorious Etria, but behind the beauty lies trouble – the Millennial Horses have vanished, and the Ancients have called upon you to find them and bring them back! It is up to you and your own trusty horses to scour the majestic lands, meeting characters and creatures big and small to help aid you on your quest.

Control your horse by tapping the lower-right plus icon to speed up and the minus icon to slow down.

You can also tap and drag to pan the camera and view your surroundings!

▲ Tap the jump icon at the precise time to get a bigger experience boost.

▲ Quest information is shown on the top left. Complete each task to earn the reward!

▲ Tap the map icon for a broader view of your surroundings, with your current location marked with an arrow.

As you travel across the beaches, valleys, and deserts of Etria you will have to take on quests to continue the story, such as finding hidden items or delivering packages to particular characters. Completing quests also earns you rewards that you can use to purchase from hundreds of items to customize your character and horse with.

Don’t forget to care for your horse! Groom them and train them to upgrade their abilities, from their speed to their jumping skills, and practice riding them in the ‘Paddock.’ Connect with friends to visit their own paddocks, and even try your hand at competing against each other in races and horse jumping events. The great world of Etria is waiting – throw on a saddle and trot towards destiny!

Good news everyone, Professor Fransworth has shattered space and time, bringing Fox's hit animated series to the same universe! While the Professor might suggest, "No need for propane, we can fix it with dark matter!" Hank Hill might say, "BWAAAA!" Then you know it is time to break out the cards and see which show stands on top in Fox's battle of the animated series.

Players can assemble their deck, detailed with comedic graphics from Family Guy, American Dad, Bob's Burgers, and more! Start with a hand of 5 cards. The goal is to get your opponent's heart points to zero by attacking them.

Deal out "Teddy," and combine him with the power-up card "Music" to create a stronger version, "Dancing Teddy." Can you recognize the episode each graphic is from?

▲ This is another fine mess Professor Farnsworth has gotten us into! Or is it a blessing?

▲ Reminisce on the episodes of each show, and defeat your pistol toting, CIA serving opponent.

▲ What ridiculous card will come from a "Gene" and "Kuchi Kopi" fusion?! Hopefully a strong one.

Battle with the other fans online, proving once and for all that your show is the funniest! But, before heading to the "Arena," power up and fuse your cards to guarantee a fierce and banter-filled battle.

With all the excitement in this joint universe card game, you may start to think it is better if these hilarious shows stay together! Instead of destroying Lois, try using Stewie to blast Bender instead.
