A lot or a little?

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

Educational Value

Doodle Devil wasn't created with educational intent, and we don’t recommend it for learning.

Ease of Play

Simply pick two categories, and then tap an element from each category to combine them. If it works, new elements appear; if not, nothing happens. Very simple and straightforward. There are also hints, but after each use you have to wait a while before another hint can be requested. 

Violence

Combining certain elements implies violence. For example, Fire + Human = Corpse and Suffering; there are also ways to create Murder and Blood. However, the app does not animate anything; it is simply represented by a small icon.

Sex

The Man and Woman icons are shown naked from the waist up, and there is also Sex and Lust, which depict a man and woman in missionary position and a naked woman, respectively. All of the icons are very small and don't have much detail.

Language

Each time an element is created, a famous quote is displayed, and at least one uses the word "hell." Many of the quotes reference heaven, hell, God, and the devil.

Consumerism

There is a link for "More Games" on the main menu, and also a link to purchase Doodle God, a similar app where you play as God instead of the Devil.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

You can create Tobacco as one of the elements, but tobacco use is not shown.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Doodle Devil is a sequel to Doodle God, and challenges players to create devilish things starting with a limited number of "elements." Players take the role of the Devil, creating the Seven Deadly Sins and technology like televisions and cell phones. Obviously, there is humor involved that is not appropriate for young children, and the game includes mature topics such as sex, war, and religion. There is also a category for monsters that can be created.

What's it about?

You play as the Devil, combining elements starting with a very basic set and creating the 7 Deadly Sins, various physical elements and technologies, and some concepts such as religion and suffering. The game has content and imagery that's not appropriate for younger children; even when the \"Kids safe mode\" is turned on, there are still things such as murder and a depiction of a nude woman.

Is it any good?

DOODLE DEVIL is a follow-up to Doodle God and uses the same basic format: starting with a handful of elements, create a world, starting with Human + Apple = Knowledge. With 190 elements to create in 19 different categories, Doodle Devil will keep you busy trying to figure out what combinations will work. There is a sly sort of humor in some of the combinations, as well as the quotations displayed when new elements are created.

The graphics are excellent, with small iconic representations of the elements and resulting creations. While Doodle Devil is not appropriate for younger children because of some depictions of nudity and violence, teens and adults may get a kick out of mixing up elements.
