its fine

there is nothing really wrong with the game. bendy and the ink machine is kind of scary (for kids) so basicly if your kid can swipe, look at, and hold phone, this game is fine,

What I think

Ok so little kids may find this 1% scary for obvious reasons and kids should not be see axes and painful items being thrown at monsters so I will say 7.

Good game but major issue.

The game itself is very different to its counterpart Bendy and the Ink Machine, with the only similarities of using a few characters from the game. The style of the game is really nice and is to suit a 1920's cartoon theme. The characters look cool and there are really nice features. Unlike its predecessor this game is suitable for younger children as it does not include major violence or horror. Positives. The game has a nice style and you do not need to play the previous game to understand anything in this game as it is not story based. The bosses are cool and the game is relatively simple and addictive with fun cartoony antics. Negatives There are two main issues with this game. Number 1 is that when an ad plays, the game's music and sound effects are put on mute. The only way you can change it is if you exit and enter the game again. Ads play frequently in this game and there are no ways to disable ads so it is a bit of a minor inconvenience. However issue number two is a major inconvenience. Throughout the game, there is a certain attack made by the boss named Chester. This attack is when he shoots 3 piles of gold which you you have to swerve around to avoid. This attack would be pretty easy to dodge but each time he uses this attack the game lags badly. While still possible to avoid this attack, this gives you a high possibility of being hit. This can make the level much more difficult as of your low health and can almost make the game unplayable. * This game does contain in-game purchases (like a lot of other mobile games) so if you don't want your child to purchase anything that is something to keep in mind.

Kid-friendly Bendy and the Ink Machine contains some mild violence and consumerism.

Hello. I am DevilGamer, and I will be helping you decide on whether “Bendy in Nightmare Run” is ok for your kids/tweens. Here is a short, and brief description of the full game: Bendy™ In Nightmare Run is an action-packed 'boss runner' for your iOS device. Play as Bendy™, Boris the Wolf and Alice Angel as you swipe to jump, dash and counter-attack four of the largest, nastiest bullies ever depicted in the classic 1930's cartoons of Joey Drew Studios —Source: Google (P.S.: The game is on iOS and Android!) FACTORS: Violence: Mild violence; Bendy throws axes and anvils (as well as other household weapons), resulting in no blood or gore. Think of the game as “Temple Run” but with the Bendy artstyle. Blood: No blood or gore involved. Explicit Language: No explicit language involved. Sexual Content: No sexual content/material/themes/references involved. Suggestive Content: No suggestive content/material/themes/references involved. Satanism: Unlike Bendy and the Ink Machine, this game has absolutely no Satanism involved or anything that would offend Christian or Catholic families. The only thing is that Bendy is a cartoon devil, but he shows no evil signs in this game. For more information check out my review on (“Bendy and the Ink Machine”) Horror/Fear Content: Mild horror/fear content; basically none, however, the bosses may scare young children. Substance Use: No substance use/references involved. Consumerism: You have the options to buy from the official Bendy store. In-app purchases include bacon soup, which is considered currency that can be bought by real money. SUGGESTED AGE LEVELS: Violence : 9+ Blood : Not Present Explicit Language : Not Present Sexual Content : Not Present Suggestive Content : Not Present Substance Use : Not Present Satanism : Not Present Horror/Fear Content : 10+ The game is overall suitable for young children 7 and older, or for young horror fans. If they are familiar with “Bendy and the Ink Machine”, then this should be no problem. As mentioned from the developer, this game is considered a “kid-friendly version of Bendy”, because the actual game is a rated-T horror game. At the moment there is no official confirmed ESRB rating of this game. However, I have a suggested one. Suggested ESRB Rating: E10+ for “Mild Violence” Includes: In-App Purchases And the PEGI system didn’t make one either, but here is a suggested one. Suggested PEGI Rating: PEGI 7 for “violence” Info: Includes In-App Purchases Common Sense Media did good on this one. As for a critic’s review, I give it a 6/10. The game has been out since 2018, and ever since then the game has received no new updates. The game seems outdated. Gameplay is rather smooth and fun to play on-the-go.
