Phineas and Ferb: Quest for Cool Stuff is a video game based on Phineas and Ferb, released for multiple platforms August 12, 2013. The game follows Phineas and Ferb as they collect artifacts for their Museum of Cool, while Perry attempts to stop Dr. Doofenshmirtz from taking over the Tri-State Area.
Playable Characters and Abilities
The player can control Phineas, Ferb, and Perry in this game's two modes. In "Exploration Mode", the player controls Phineas and Ferb as they explore different areas, from their backyard to the moon, for cool artifacts. In "Action Mode", the player controls Perry as he infiltrates Doofenshmirtz's lab in order to stop the doctor from activating his latest schemes.
As Phineas and Ferb, the player can build and upgrade an A.T.T. (All-Terrain Transformatron Vehicle).
- This is the second time the boys have built an all-terrain vehicle. ("The Secret of Success")
- This is the only game to be released on Xbox 360 since Across the 2nd Dimension was never released due to Disney wanting the game to capitalize on the motion control capabilities of the Wii Remote, which the Kinect was unable to perform because of its full body tracking functionality.

Phineas and Ferb: Quest for Cool Stuff received positive reviews. Kidzworld gave it "4/5 stars" being a solid game. The game is fairly easy for the most part, making it perfect for younger Phineas and Ferb fans. There is not too much difference between the Wii and Wii U aside from being able to use the Wii U's gamepad for the game's menu and seeing extra information while playing through the levels. In the end, Phineas and Ferb: Quest for Cool Stuff is a decent game with which to spend the last weeks of summer. Susan's Disney Family stated the game and the challenges are good; "If you like P & F don’t hesitate to pick this game up; it was based on the movie that came out last month and is a pretty good depiction of the movie it has some slight tweaks but is pretty much spot on and is available on all gaming consoles. So if you are looking for a fun kids game this is it, and with P&F being so hot right now, this is a game the kids will be sure to love". NY Daily News gave it "3/5 stars" that the game was good for youngsters who are familiar with the hit Disney cartoon that captures feel of the series, polished visuals, solid story but lacks limited innovation. FutureShop gave it a "3/5" that the game in which the handling is easy and friendly, perfect for a young audience. In addition to finding a little too easy, it is surprising that the game is available in English, especially as it necessarily address the same audience as that of the animated series. Nintendolife gave it a" 5/10 stars" that is a great way to introduce young gamers to the decidedly difficult Metroidvania sub-genre of platformers, but anyone looking for a challenging or fulfilling experience will be sorely disappointed. Game Plan states is a dead-simple platformer that requires the usual wall jumping and coin collecting (in this case, sprocket collecting). The fun is in the game’s playful sense of humor and kid-friendly storyline.
