The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Ease of Play

Players given choice to position their troops themselves, have game's AI control them, making it accessible to players of all skill sets. 


Point of game is having troops battle each other, but there's no blood, gore. 


Usual free-to-play mechanics very apparent. After a certain point, you either have to pay to continue or be extremely patient. 

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Dawn of Titans is an action-strategy game that balances the two genres. Players will have to determine which are the best troops to use and where to deploy them, but there's a satisfying action component as well. But there's not any excessive blood or gore or even sound effects that are especially violent, other than troops yelling as they run into and engage in battle. Nor is there any sexual content or drug or alcohol use to be concerned about. But players can interact with others in a live, unmoderated chat, where language can be inappropriate.

What's it about?

In DAWN OF TITANS, players protect their kingdom and fight enemy rulers, sorcerers and ne'er-do-wells. It features not only thousands of tiny soldiers to command but larger "boss" units (the namesake Titans) while blending magic spells. You'll march to or defend objective points, taking out enemies along the way, using simple finger-drag controls to guide your troops. Not sure about how to get started? The game will get your troops moving in the right direction for you, if you'd like. Victories earn gold and food, which can be used to expand your reign. Between the short battles, you'll construct buildings and manage resources in your kingdom.

Is it any good?

This free-to-play action-strategy game gets a whole lot right. Dawn of Titans is, without question, a good-looking game. And the decision to make the battles bite-sized -- letting you get in, fight, and then get out -- gives the game a longevity that many of its peers lack. (You never feel it's a burden.) It's welcoming to new players and requires some real strategy as you get further into the game. And the player-vs.-player components are well done (though parents should beware the unmoderated-chat functionality).

Because it excels in so many areas, though, the game's minor annoyances are magnified. Building the kingdom can feel a bit tedious, and the pressure to spend real-world cash as you get deeper into the game is distracting, especially when you have to wait more than 30 minutes to fight another battle. Overlooking those issues, though, is pretty easy once you hop back into the game and lose yourself in the strategy and fight.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about the strategy involved in winning a match and the chess-like aspects of the game. Can you use the strategy in this title in other games or in real life?

  • Families can also talk about allocating resources and how to make the best decisions when doing so. How do you know what the best use of your materials happens to be? Can you improve how your units use their resources?
