What parents need to know

Ease of play

This game is fairly easy to play, with your left thumb devoted to moving the character around the world -- via a virtual analog stick -- and the left thumb reserved for various attacks (by tapping onscreen buttons). That said, there is no left-handed option.

 

Violence

Violence is the core gameplay mechanic. Players wield swords, axes and other weapons to defeat evil. Red plumes implying blood appear after creatures are defeated. Killing enemies earns you their "soul," which is then deposited into a hearth. Piles of skulls often reveal power-ups when slashed. Players can see a total of "kills" in a summary screen.

Sex

A female fighter is very well endowed and wears a low-cut top held together by stitches. The artist added a sheen to her chest, too, which looks like sweat.

Language
Not applicable
Consumerism

There are some advertisements in this game, but not during gameplay. On the map screen, for example, you might see a small banner near the bottom that advertises another game. Plus, you are encouraged to invite your Facebook friends to play (a "clan" feature that also works though Apple's Game Center service). This game also gives you the option to purchase coins with real money (e.g. 10,000 coins for $2.99) or earn gold coins by downloading and using other apps (like Netflix) or "liking" Glu on Facebook, etc.

Drinking, drugs, & smoking
Not applicable
Privacy & safety

This is a single-player game, but there's an option to sign into Facebook or Game Center to band together with friends as a "clan." Specifically, this means you can fight demons in your own respective games, but share the collective benefits, such as coins and experience.

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that ETERNITY WARRIORS is a fantasy action game with role-playing elements. Combat is the name of the game as you use melee weapons, such as various swords and axes, to slaughter many creatures in underground dungeons. Red blood is seen when the enemies are defeated. The game also has some suggestive visuals (a scantily clad female warrior), and parents should be aware you can purchase goods using real money.

QUALITY
 

While Glu's ETERNITY WARRIORS won't go down in history as one of the best games for iDevices, it's a charming and free hack-and-slash fantasy action romp with some role-playing game elements. By building up your weapons, armor, and skills, you'll slay thousands of enemies (such as skeletons, minotaurs, and other demonic creatures), absorb their souls, and spend this currency for even more goodies. The locations, which are primarily purple-tinged underground dungeons, also contain other collectibles to seek out -- therefore exploration is also encouraged.

You're in control of a beefy warrior, accompanied by a computer-controlled sidekick, and you'll move about the world using your thumbs on virtual analog sticks and buttons. While the story is lame and action repetitive, ETERNITY WARRIORS is a "freemium" game (you can use real money to buy more gold pieces) that will likely give you a few hours of fun on your favorite Apple gadget.
