Seemingly for kids; purchases, privacy issues age it up.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Inappropriate Content Marketed Toward Kids

Very inappropriate for kids. My 11 year old loved this game and, sadly, I found the chat feature too late. She had already been exposed to sexual comments, requests to play “Truth or Dare,” and strangers asking for private information. There is no way to hide or turn off the chat feature. Please don’t let your children play this game.

A very technical game

I think there is a little missunderstanding about this game for parents, yes I know that everything costs gems but Ive been playing this game for over 5 years and Ive only spent $60. Which isnt too much compared to what other things I could spend money on. I understand that it looks like you have to spend gems but honestly you dont, if you look at any other game they always get like this. Look at Clash of Clans, where it costs $10,000 to max everything, but Dragon City lets you max everything with $100 or so. Everygame has longer wait times. And kids get used to it as some couldnt spend even if you wanted too. You can get by and get strong without spending a dollar. Just remember to tell your kids every game gets longer, its just how they work.
