PEGI rated 7 for Fear and Violence.

ESRB EVERYONE 10 for Comic Mischief, Suggestive Themes and Mild Cartoon Violence. As players run, jump, and fly through each level, they must avoid hazards (e.g., fireballs, lightning bolts, lava pits) and defeat a variety of creatures (e.g., birds, shrimp, fish, robots, dragons). Most enemies disappear into puffs of smoke when hit. During the course of the game, players must rescue female nymphs that wear revealing outfits (e.g., moderate amounts of cleavage). The dialogue occasionally contains comical remarks and/or references to bathroom humour.
