The ipod and ipod versions of this game do have quite a bit of blood and gore, but there is an option to turn off blood. The blood flies every time you strike, and it pools around the fallen enemy when they are cut down. With two weapons, you can even decapitate your enemy. In other words, don't let little kids play this. Especially if there squeamish. The controls and graphics are very well polished however and it's very well made, should be ok for kids 14 and up.
