This game was rated PEGI 7 because it features violence that lacks any apparent harm or injury to fantasy or mythical beings and creatures as well as non-realistic violence in a child-friendly setting or context. The examiners report expands this rating with the following: The graphics are pixelated and have a 16 bit feel to them. The animations are fluent and natural. The game has a fantasy feel to it which shapes the levels and enemies. The violence in the game is aimed at pixelated human-like characters and monsters. These monsters can consist of blobs, flying eye balls, skeleton warriors etc. You can defeat enemies by jumping on their heads or by shooting them with your bow and arrow. When an enemy is hit by an arrow, they get knocked back and grind to a halt or are stopped by a wall. Since the game is pixelated, there isn’t much detail in the violence.
This game has been rated ESRB EVERYONE 10+.
Skill Rating: This game is enjoyed by 8-14 year-olds as it's a good match for their ability and maturity. School-aged children love the retro graphics and the idea of a limited number of arrows. Competing with six friends has been a popular activity for Birthday parties. As they get older, the extra skill of dodging and different modes keep this popular.
