OverviewOverview

PJ Masks: Heroes of the Night is a running and jumping game where young children play as the heroes from the TV show. Its simple controls and straightforward levels, which have lots of collectables to find, provide a simple yet enjoyable interactive extension to the programme.

Play as all three of the masked heroes; Catboy, Owlette and Gekko, each with their own unique abilities, as they save the world from villains including the likes of Romeo, Luna Girl and Night Ninja, as they steal your homework build robot servants, and more.

You run, jump, drive, fly and dive through the 8 unique levels, each based on different locations from the show as you track down the baddies. In each level, there are 200 orbs and 3 amulets, which give you trophies when collected. You switch between the three different heroes and use each of their unique abilities; invisibility, super speed, strength, flight and more, to clear obstacles and bring your opponents to justice.

It's a simple, lighthearted game for young children, that enhances the experience of the show, while still offering meaningful gameplay and rewarding curiosity.

Rated PEGI 3 for Very Mild Violence. The main characters have special powers, which they can use to avoid obstacles. When the characters encounter villains, they can perform moves or use their special powers to defeat them. For example, they can throw enemies or knock them over by running through them. However, nobody is ever seen to be injured and the context is child-like.

Skill Rating

4-7 year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game.

AccessibilityAccessibility

While there are no difficulty settings, the game is intentionally easy; there is no time pressure on any actions and each level is unfailable.

While the text used throughout is large, some of it isn't high contrast, as some of it is coloured light blue on a darker blue background, making it somewhat difficult to read.

Most of the text throughout the game is subtitled, including all tutorial segments, which are repeated each time you replay a level.

There are signs pointing you in the correct direction with large arrows, and the orbs often make a clear path to the end of the level.

On PC you can use either the mouse and keys, using the keyboard in levels and navigating menus with the mouse, or a controller. On the console versions, you can only use a controller.
