Games are one of the smaller, but still spectacular, parts of the fandom. Fan-made pony games range from simple platform games to more ambitious projects. Here is a list of pony games that might be of interest.
-Basic Online Games-
Your job is to place ponies at different points along the path to defend Canterlot from enemies trying to infiltrate the city. Each pony costs a specific price and has specific strengths and weaknesses. Earn bits to buy ponies by defeating enemies before they reach Canterlot. You can also upgrade the skills of said ponies.
Neutralize Changelings to protect Canterlot. This is a basic point-and-shoot game. If you’re in trouble, you can summon one of Twilight’s friends to help.

You can launch your own attack when the Solar Beam recharges. Every hit gets you a new element of harmony. When the elements are fully charged, you can fire the Harmony Cannon.
-Downloadable Fan-Made Games-
My Little Investigations
After the success of “Turnabout Storm”, the first true crossover between Phoenix Wright and My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, it was only a matter of time before a real My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic detective game hit the proverbial shelves. That game is “My Little Investigations”, one of the most impressive fan projects in the history of the fandom. The game stars Twilight Sparkle as the investigator and features most of the characters we know and love, plus many references to the show itself and well-known fan works. The game is in the style of the renowned Phoenix Wright games.
My Little Pony: Fighting is Magic
What happens when you put ponies and Street Fighter together? You get this amazing game starring our favorite candy-colored equines as the fighters. Unfortunately, Hasbro shut down official production of this game a little while ago. Luckily, there is a “Tribute Edition” you can download. This edition only stars the Mane 6, as opposed to the many other characters from the show that would have been playable in the official released version of the game.
