Knights And Bikes! Review
Posted: 18 months ago, last updated 4 weeks ago.
The chance to play in an imaginative and gleeful childhood world makes this a perfect game to share. The retro-modern Stranger Things-feel is ideal for parents and children playing together. It's a tale that keeps things light but also includes a moving backstory of the passing of one of the characters mother and the journey to come to terms with that in the family.
The two-player cooperative play suits parents and children working together. This, combined with the visual style, gives the game the feel of a Saturday-morning cartoon show. Taking charge of either Nessa or Demelza and exploring the island on their bike is an entertaining and well-observed recreation of backwater holiday destinations.
The game also has a series of books by Gabrielle Kent that expand the world and character of the island, while taking Nessa and Demelza on new adventures. In addition there is an animated cartoon in the works and you can download a recipe to make the cream tea you have in the game.
This game has been rated ESRB EVERYONE 10+.
PEGI 7 with non-realistic violence in a child-friendly setting or context, violence that lacks any apparent harm or injury to fantasy or mythical beings and creatures and pictures or sounds likely to be scary to young children. The examiners report expands this rating with the following: This game features combat between children and fantasy characters. The overall visual style is similar to graphic styles found in Saturday-morning cartoons and makes the violence found in combat over-the-top and unrealistic. Next to that, this game also features scenes in which a curse plays a major role. These scenes feature effects, sounds and characters that might scare young children.
In addition to the rating advice parents should note that at one point players throw water on live electrics to make a connection and progress the game.
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.
