OverviewOverview

This is a fantasy war game, similar to Advanced Wars from the Gameboy era, where players take turns in a variety of battles. Computer-controlled and human opponents compete to achieve objectives and be the last player remaining.

Wargroove is easy to pick up and accessible but players need to learn how to use the different units in specific situations to master the game. This encourages deep thinking and strategic play.

Free additional content, Double Trouble, adds a campaign for two players to work through collaboratively. This also adds new commanders and troops.

Age RatingsAge Ratings

This game has received a PEGI 7 because it features violence that lacks any apparent harm or injury to fantasy or mythical beings and creatures and non-realistic looking violence towards characters which although human are not very detailed. It is not suitable for persons under 7 years of age. The examiners report expands this rating with the following: Players send units to engage other troops – these battles are then carried out in a split pop-up screen where the attacking side runs to the other and performs one attack on them, draining the troop’s health bar. Several of the enemy characters fall down or are pushed back and disappear. The remaining opponents then counter-attack. If a troop is wiped out from the attack, the screen turns back to the battle map and that troop is seen to disappear in a puff of smoke.
 
This game has been rated ESRB EVERYONE 10+.


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.
