Kids(and adults!)should be aware that this game is slightly violent. Nothing that a parent should be afraid of . Despite being a Friday the 13th game it requires you to actually think. I convinced my kids to play this game and they LOVED this game Another thing that is good is its not addictive. My summary is play this game

This combination of a puzzle game and one of the most infamous onscreen killers shouldn't work, yet somehow, this mature game is actually a lot better than it sounds on paper. Yes, the violence in Friday the 13th: Killer Puzzle isn't appropriate for young players. (Little kids don't need to see a cleaver going through someone's chest and a beating heart sticking out of a victim's back, even if the characters do resemble Funko pop dolls.) But there's a winking humor to it all. (A coffee pot as a murder weapon? Really?) The puzzles are challenging, but the floating head of Jason's mother in the upper right corner of the screen will offer help when you ask for it (usually at the price of watching a video ad).

This is a bloody game, but it's well done, even if the violence is cartoonish. And it treats its players fairly, not penalizing them when they're stuck or forcing them to buy in-game items to win, which older players will greatly appreciate. Friday the 13th: Killer Puzzle might not be for younger players, but it could easily scare up fun if you want to pass the time away.
