Finn, Jake, and BMO are are watching a movie called "Blood Drive" when Marceline comes over to play video games. An excited BMO brings out an old game called "Super Guts Punch 3", and since Marceline is there BMO decides to allow them to go into his Main Brain Game Frame.
After they enter the game they land in a throne room with the prince locked in a cage. Finn remembers an article about the game in an old magazine and figures out they have to press a secret floor tile and they are then shrunken down and swallowed by the prince. After escaping the prince's stomach acid, they find out all the game's bosses and enemies are much easier to defeat than they should be. After defeating the final boss with one hit, the game begins to dissolve and the words "CRACKED AND HACKED BY EWLBO" "GREETS 2 THE OTHER" "==SoFTWARE WiZARDZ==" appear and then our heroes are released from the game wondering who "Ewlbo" is.
Once they are back in the real world, they find that BMO's personality is far more aggressive than before. Marceline deduces that "Ewlbo" has hacked BMO and infected it with a computer virus.
