Content Rating

Rated PEGI 16 because it features scenes of bloody violence in an arcade setting. Some games feature scenes in which human characters can be stabbed or cut in half, accompanied by blood effects. Violence is not presented in a realistic style, given the arcade nature of the games, and lacks strong injury detail. This game offers players the opportunity to purchase additional games by visiting the platform's store. Some parents or carers may want to be aware of this. Parents, carers or other responsible adults should check to see what is being offered before making any purchase on behalf of a child.


While the games in the packs vary in accessibility the re-release includes some enhancements to aid this aspect of play.

In terms of difficulty, you can rewind play at any time, select the difficulty of the game in general, set how many lives you have, adjust the overall speed of the game. You can also save and reload whenever you want.

You can adjust how the pixels are scaled to make them jagged or smooth. You can also stretch the image to make it larger.
