OverviewOverview

Pilgrims is an adventure game where you collect cards to help the characters you meet. As you progress you assist them to complete their little stories by offering the right cards to the right people. It's a little like Scribblenauts, but with less focus on the breadth of options and more on elegant solutions.

The focus is on playfulness rather than winning. You can solve the various tasks using dozens of items and unique characters but you don't have to follow a single designated path. This means that it's fun to play multiple times to see how things unfold (and to work to earn all 45 achievements).

You can play the game at your own pace, solving the various tasks using dozens of items and unique characters without being obliged to follow a single designated path. It's all handcrafted and animated with countless humorous and unexpected outcomes.

Age RatingsAge Ratings

Content Rating

Originally Rated PEGI 3, but was updated as PEGI 7, after formal review, because it features mild violence, including characters hitting each other with brooms and a character being lassoed. However, the violence is not detailed and there is no blood or injury detail.

Rated 12+ on App Store for Infrequent/Mild Profanity or Crude Humor, Mild Alcohol Use, Mild Cartoon or Fantasy Violence.

There are two usable items in the game that resemble alcoholic beverages. As for fantasy violence, in some situations, a character may attack/hit their opponent, but with no sign of blood. The game always maintains a family-friendly fairy-tale style.

Skill Rating

5+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. Very young players may need some help navigating, but can enjoy picking cards for the different characters and working out what they need.

AccessibilityAccessibility

Our Pilgrims Accessibility Report documents 22 accessibility features:
Pilgrims does not have a tutorial or provide guidance on how to proceed, much of the gameplay is focused around figuring out what you can do with the cards and characters. There is no formal hint system, but there are faint images on the achievement cards that give some clues at other things you can try.
