Age RatingsAge Ratings

Rated PEGI 7 for Mild Violence. Combat is in real-time and against various fantasy enemies, using a sword combos or magic spells to do damage. Enemies flicker when hit and when their health is depleted, they fade away. When the player’s character is defeated, he falls to the ground until the other character revives him. All violence is mild, but the action can get frenetic. There are several boss battles present, some of which are against intimidating or menacing characters.

ESRB 10+ for Fantasy Violence.

Rated 9+ on the iOS app store.
