Squid Game (Roblox) Review
Posted: 2 weeks ago, last updated today.
As is common, this has spawned lots of Roblox Squid Game experiences. These games replicate challenges in the TV Show for players to take part in: Tug of War, Simon Says (Red Light, Green light), Honeycomb Cut-Out, Marbles, Bridge Crossing, Hopscotch. Of course, the stakes of the challenge are upped for the player so that when they fail they die in the game and are out of that round.
Roblox games evolve over time as developers adapt them to the requests of players. More recent additions to the various Squid Games include the ability to push other players when they are near you so they get shot.

Roblox is rated PEGI 7 and ESRB EVERYONE 10+. However, this rating applies to the Roblox game in general rather than the content in Squid Game challenges.
The games can only depict what's going on with Roblox cartoon visuals, but this still creates the tension and killing of the show (but with child participants being shot). It's clearly a fantasy setting and not real life. But games like Red Light, Green Light depict players being shot if they move and then lying dead on the ground.
The Squid Game TV Show, is rated for 15 year-olds by BBFC for “sexual violence references, injury detail, crude humour, sex, suicide, sexual images, violence”.
Skill RatingThis game is enjoyed by 12+ year-olds as it's a good match for their ability and maturity.
