OverviewOverview

Wavetale is a surfing and jumping adventure in a world of sunken cities and fog. It wasn't always like this, and you help restore the decaying archipelago as Sigrid, a young girl who befriends a mysterious shadow that provides her with the power to walk on water.

It's an unusual world populated with interesting characters fed-up fishermen, secretive hermits and more than a couple of pirates. But the real excitement is jumping, gliding and surfing your way around this imaginative space.

As you progress you push out beyond the borders of the safe city and find yourself taking on enemies to free the world from the fog. You traverse calm waters and surging waves, swing from housetops with your net, and defeat enemies to save the citizens of the islands.

It's available first on Stadia and after that will be on PC.

Content Rating

Rated PEGI 7 for mild violence that lacks any apparent harm or injury to human-like and fantasy characters, as well as pictures or sounds likely to be scary to young children. Players travel through a water-based world and occasionally engage in battles with fantasy enemies. When enemies are hit, stars appear above their heads. They disappear in a cloud when defeated. There is also a boss battle with a large sea serpent. The player's character reacts to violence in a similar manner. Some cutscenes revolve around distressed characters and an ominous tidal wave. These scenes may be disturbing to younger players.

Skill Rating

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

There is no difficulty setting but you can opt for Infinite Lives. Also you can make aiming easier by opting to Freeze Time when aiming.

You can select toggles rather than holds for Boost, Aim and Glide.

You can adjust the size of the font but there is not always a box behind the text so this can make it harder to read (even though it is outlined in black). Subtitles do appear in speech bubbles which makes the text stand out better.

There's a map you can view at any time. There's also a compass at the top of the screen that indicates item direction and how far away they are.
