Rated PEGI 7 with 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. Players engage in turn-based battles in which characters stand on opposite sides of the screen. All characters have health bars and react mildly and unrealistically when hit. There is never any blood or injury present. When defeated, enemies usually fall to the ground and vanish into thin air. There are a couple of scary bosses with menacing designs that can be frightening to younger children.

This game has been rated ESRB EVERYONE 10+.
