OverviewOverview

Roblox Squid Games (Fish Game) is a game that replicates the Squid Game South Korean TV horror series about a fictional game show. A group of 456 people from all different areas of life come to play a series of children's games to win millions of dollars. The twist is that although the challenges are simple, failing them will cost contestants their lives.

As is common, this has spawned lots of Roblox Squid Game experiences. These games replicate challenges in the TV Show for players to take part in - Tug of War, Simon Says (Red Light, Green light), Honeycomb Cut-Out, Marbles, Bridge Crossing, and Hopscotch. Of course, the stakes of the challenge are upped for the player so that when they fail they die in the game and are out of that round.

Roblox games evolve over time as developers adapt them to the requests of players. More recent additions to the various Squid Games include the ability to push other players when they are near you so they get shot.

Age RatingsAge Ratings

Content Rating

Rated PEGI "!", Parental Guidance Recommended.
 
Users Interact: The game enables players to interact and communicate with each other, so may expose players to language usually associated with older rated games.

Rated for younger players in Australia. Rated Parental Guidance (PG) for Mild Violence.
Roblox is rated PEGI 7 and ESRB EVERYONE 10+. However, this rating applies to the Roblox game in general rather than the content in Squid Game challenges.

The games can only depict what's going on with Roblox cartoon visuals, but this still creates the tension and killing of the show (but with child participants being shot). It's clearly a fantasy setting and not real life. But games like Red Light and Green Light depict players being shot if they move and then lying dead on the ground.

The Squid Game TV Show is rated for 15-year-olds by BBFC for “sexual violence references, injury detail, crude humour, sex, suicide, sexual images, violence”.

12+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game.
