Reception

Critical response

Cartoon Network: Punch Time Explosion Maximum received positive reviews from critics, being considered a major improvement from Cartoon Network: Punch Time Explosion. Praises were given for better controls, the return of most of the original voices rather than using soundalikes, fun story, its humor and lack of bad shows.

Trivia

  • Unlike the original game, the only characters to be recast on it were Eddy since his voice actor has retired from acting in 2009 and Mac and Chowder since their voice actors are no longer children.
    • As a result, Eddy is now voiced by Brian Drummond, Mac by [child] and Chowder by Tex Hammond who is also Grey Griffin's son.
  • The majority of the voice cast recorded their lines in Los Angeles, California while the voice actors for Ed, Edd 'n Eddy, due to them living in Canada, recorded their lines in Vancouver, British Columbia and the voice actors for Gumball's parents, due to them living in England, recorded their lines in London.
  • Mojo Jojo and the Ice King are so far the only playble villains in the game.
  • Space Ghost is so-far the only non-Cartoon Network character to appear on it, since he's owned by Hanna-Barbera instead, although both companies are ultimately owned by Warner Bros.
  • Warner Bros. confirmed that addition of Plank as a boss was mainly for jokes.
  • Dexter, Mac and Bloo and Ben Tennyson are the only ones to keep their synergy attacks.
