Best. Game. Ever. was a Total Drama Action game, exclusively available on the Cartoon Network website. The game was first released on June 12, 2009. The game runs off the same engine used to create Cartoon Network's previous massive multiplayer online game, Big Fat Awesome House Party. The game was removed from the website in May 2012.


In the game, players portray a new intern working for Chris. Players can interact with the castmates, battle enemies, complete challenges and tasks, and buy power-ups, almost like Total Drama Island: Totally Interactive! from season one. Challenges came about weekly in accordance to the episode that was on that week.


BGE 253x189

Every Thursday, Chris gives out a few objectives for players based on that day's challenge.

After completing the challenge, Chris will give players one star. Get enough stars and players will be promoted.

After completing each objective, players talk to Chris about the next assignment for the challenge.

Studio announcements

Every time a new episode of Total Drama Action aired, the studio announcement advertisement would get a new phrase:



  • As of May 2012, the game has been removed from the Cartoon Network website for unknown reasons.
  • Despite being voted off the show, the eliminated cast members remain in the area.
  • When talking to the cast, most of them quote themselves from an episode of Total Drama Action.
  • Beth used to be standing next to the boys' trailer, but now she stands near the restroom with Lindsay.
  • The game has a feature that allows players to make and break alliances with the cast. Originally, it was supposed to be activated on week five. This was changed to week nine.
  • All cast members (excluding Gwen, DJ, Lindsay, Owen, and Justin) that made it to episode seven appeared in studio #5.
    • It is strange that neither Gwen nor Lindsay were locked in a cage or even appeared in the studio despite the fact that they participated in the challenge.
  • The items Chris had the player get during week six were old items from the first season. These included:
  • When buying clothes from Chef's power-up machine, the word "suck" is shown, which is usually censored by Cartoon Network. Also, Chris says "sucker" and Heather calls the Gaffers a "team of morons."
  • The design for the female avatar player loosely resembles Sadie's prototype design and the male is based on Trent and Tyler's design.
  • When the game was first introduced, Heather was wearing her wig. She now appears bald in it as a result of losing it in Alien Resurr-eggtion.
  • Studio #6 is the first studio to have an intersection.
  • When a player opens the Ally section on the main menu, there are fifteen spots for frenemies instead of fourteen, hinting Courtney's return.
  • According to what happened in the game, The Trunk of Mind Blowing Secrets did contain something within it, but the contents were destroyed during the testing of paint bombs. Chris then decided to just let the cast battle for the empty chest. He also tells the player not to tell the cast it's empty.
  • If players become a cast member's frenemy, the picture of them is simply the picture used to show they are their ally, the only differences are that their smile is turn upside down and the border is orange instead of green (the only exceptions are Heather, Trent, and Leshawna's photos).
  • On week twelve, when DJ is in the kitchen, Chef is in the lot instead of DJ.
  • If a cast member asks the player to defeat a certain amount of spiders in a studio, and the player falls for a trap set by a frenemy, the spiders defeated in the trap will still count toward the player's goal (unless the player is in a different studio than their ally instructed them to be in).
  • DJ's secret ingredient is revealed to be paprika. However, this was later revealed in the show during The Aftermath: II.
  • Some characters are used for messages for the game. For example, Gwen is shown on the error message and Duncan appears when a guest is being asked if they want to remain as such.
  • Studio #8 and Studio #23 are the only two studios to have designs on more than just the front. There are cracks on the roof for Studio #8, and there is a Television Antenna and a faded dot on Studio #23.
  • Studio #10 is the first studio to have prop studio buildings in it.
  • Studios #3, #4, and #5 are the only studios to have two types of opponents in them.
  • Studio #17 is the first studio to have a separate room that can be entered.

Gwen on the error screen.

  • Even though Izzy hates Justin, she never pulls pranks on him (Although, if Heather is a frenemy when the player has a task from Izzy, she picks Justin) What's stranger is if both Heather and Justin are frenemies, Izzy's next victim of choice is Beth, someone who Izzy doesn't seem to have a conflict with.
    • This also seems to be the case with the rest of the cast as well. If all cast members are the player's frenemies, they will prank the original target of the member of the player's alliance.
  • The week 16 oil for apple juice prank is similar to the prank Duncan did to Harold in Basic Straining.
  • Sometimes, if the player has just switched genders, when they are attacked, both genders have the same scream.
  • In Studio #14, one half of the super hero's posters resembles Trent's head.
    • Also in Studio #14, the other super hero poster resembles DJ's head.
  • In Studio #14, the super hero stuck in the ground resembles Spider Man.
  • The Bears, Aliens in Studio #1 and Sharks in Studio #3 are the only enemies that make a stomping noise when they move (all other enemies make a skittering noise).
  • In Studio #17, there is a poster with a gray Ezekiel on it.
Picture 34

A gray Ezekiel is on the poster.

  • In Studio #17, the interns are wearing make-up similar to the make-up worn by the American hard rock band, KISS.
  • The Marshmallow stick weapon is similar to the marshmallow boxing gloves in Million Dollar Babies, interestingly enough, the previous weapon, the badminton racket, is also used in that same episode.
  • The description for the badminton racket is a quote from Chris's movie.
  • The kung fu master in Studio #18 is Sasquatchanakwa.
  • The person on top of Studio #17 looks similar to Trent.
  • During week 22, Chris says that the path to victory is "long and twisted, like Heather's wig." This is referencing her second wig.
  • The flux capacitor needed to get in week 23 is a reference to the movie Back to the Future.
  • When the player invites Heather to the party in the finale week, she says that it's the "Best. Idea. Ever," a reference to the game's title.
  • Some of the items Chef's vending machine contains are some items Chris and the campers wore. Some of them are:
  • In the end picture, Duncan's eyes are shown to be wide open, yet in the original picture of Duncan using the same pose, his eyes are at half length. Gwen also has Izzy's large smile.
  • During the pirate challenge, through close inspection, Camp Wawanakwa can be seen in the background:
TDI in the background

Camp Wawanakwa in the background.

  • When the player receives a new weapon, the caption with it will sometimes reference a movie, corresponding to Total Drama Action's main theme:


  • The player could enter Studio #18 through a closed door. However, the glitch seems to be fixed. Adding to this, when someone exited Studio #18, they were shown standing in front of Studio #6. This glitch is now fixed as well.
  • On the advertisement for the game, DJ is seen holding bunny, however he is never seen with Bunny in Total Drama Action. However, a bunny makes an appearance in Studio #7 during week twelve.
    • In addition, Heather is seen with her real hair in the ad as well.
  • In Monster Cash, Chef says that the bear is only on contract for one more day, however in the southern woods, there are multiple bears who are still on the film set.
  • On the third task of Monster Cash challenge, Chris said "Talk to the intern in the northeastern city." However, the city is in the northwestern part of the area. He most likely meant the northeastern part of the city.
  • When the player exits Studio #3 after making the statue of Chris in the X made of shells, they both happen to disappear.
  • When the player beat the tasks Heather gives on week nine she gives the player her wig, but she lost it in Alien Resurr-eggtion.
  • Beth first mentions her 'boyfriend' in Masters of Disasters (which is playable on week 10). However on week nine, she says that she wishes her boyfriend were here so he could make things better. But the episode hasn't aired yet, so players in the United States wouldn't know what she's talking about.
  • When a player is a contestant's frenemy due to the contestant being hurt by pranks by the player, the contestant always sets a trap for the player, and always shouts "This will teach you to play pranks on me!" However, when a player ends up being a contestant's frenemy due to breaking an alliance with them, the same phrase is shouted. However, the player never pulled a prank on the contestant, rather broke an alliance with them.
  • When the player gives the joke victim the poison ivy toilet paper, the player heads to the east bathroom, but when the player reports back to the castmate, the frenemy comes from the west. The same goof occurs in previous weeks, when the player delivers things to Leshawna and Harold. They come from the west, even though they are standing in the east portion of the set.
  • In Studio #4, there is a hole shaped like Harold on the platform. This is strange because in the original challenge, Harold landed correctly on the horse. The only people who missed were Trent and Owen.
  • In the challenge for Ocean's Eight - Or Nine, there are two go-karts, one is green and one is red. However in the game, the player only collects green go-kart parts.
  • For some strange reason, Studios Studio #4, 5 and 6 appear behind Studio #1, 2 and 3. Also the player couldn't enter them despite the fact they are open already. Now the glitch is fixed.
  • In the game, Studio #6 is themed for the episode One Flu Over the Cuckoos. But in the episode, Leshawna walks out of Studio #4 instead of Studio #6.
  • In One Million Bucks, B.C., Heather got a new wig, however she is not seen with it in the area.
  • When getting apples for Chris, the intern says he/she needs to return to Chris after only collecting 3 of the 6 needed. This also happens when getting Chris the cans of soda. After collecting the first can, the player claims he must return to Chris.
  • In Week 21, Chris asks the player to hit the gong in Studio #18. However, there are multiple gongs in the studio.
  • In Crouching Courtney, Hidden Owen, Duncan stated that the episode took place at Camp Wawanakwa, it is shown as a studio on Week 22.
  • In Total Drama Action, the castmates easily travel from the Award Ceremonies to the Lame-O-Sine, but they are on the other side of the film lot in the game.
  • On Week 25, when a player talked to Chris, he said, "Week 25." Then he said that the player earned a star and are promoted to superstar (along with getting a flag for a weapon), without actually doing anything. Afterward, he says there isn't a challenge for the player that week. Adding to this, speaking to an ally will automatically add someone to the player's frenemy list. Talk to them again and the player suddenly receives the reward, followed by them not saying anything else important. Finally, after all of this, the new studio is still closed. It may be because of the designers needing more time to sort out glitches. This may even mean that the player is unable to do the challenges, and have an incomplete game. This glitch was fixed, however.
  • After winning the game, the "congratulations card" shows Heather with her normal hair, despite her being bald in Total Drama Action.
