OverviewOverview

Star Trek Prodigy: Supernova is an action adventure where you run around exploring different worlds, battling enemies and solving simple puzzles. You play on your own or with someone else as Dal and Gwyn, who each have different abilities needed to progress different parts of the levels. It's a mix of Uncharted style adventuring, but with approachability and playfulness focusing on a younger audience.

When the Protostar’s malfunctioning transporter scatters the crew across three alien planets, Dal and Gwyn must use their wits and skills to overcome ingenious puzzles, endure hostile environments and battle deadly robot armies to rescue Jankom Pog, Rok-Tahk, Zero and Murf.

You take command to explore a range of different alien worlds (Orisi, Mirios and Taresse) each offering specific hostile environments, puzzles, challenges and mysteries. As you search for your friends you must also keep an eye out for a range of enemies.

The result is a game not only noteworthy for the Star Trek theme. It offers some really novel environmental puzzles as things progress, many of which require some fun co-op play. From the shooting to the scanning and other interactions, things are kept simple and fun and approachable for players of any ages.

Content Rating

Rated PEGI 7 because it features non-realistic violence in a child-friendly setting or context, as well as pictures or sounds likely to be scary to young children. It features non-realistic violence in which players use fantastical weapons, such as laser guns and lightsabers, to defeat non-human enemies. Enemies flash when hit and are knocked backwards slightly. When their health bar is depleted, they fall to the ground and disappear. The protagonists also flash when hit and grunt and flinch. When defeated, they fall to one knee and slowly recover, with the other player character able to speed up their recovery. When both player characters are defeated, the game fades to black and the characters respawn at a checkpoint. There are no visible injuries. Boss fights feature larger, darker and more threatening enemies with glowing eyes.

Skill Rating

5+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. Younger players need to be able to help with solving the block-pushing puzzles and can benefit from some parental help. It's a great game to play together parent and child.
