A change in behavior

If you notice your children being meaner around the same day or so of playing this, it is not a coincidence. I do not blame video games for this and that. However I will say that everything your child, and us as adults, has influence. I have noticed my 8, 10, and 12 year old acting out more physically and doing pranks bc they thought it would be funny and it hurt the other sibling. "There is no blood" my kids said when I saw the players jumping into a grinder. Still, it was disturbing and I do not recommend it. If your child does okay it, keep an eye on their behavior and actions. If anything is *off* and the game is the new influencer, I would remove the game.

Kids say (4):

If you're looking for deep gameplay or a rich story, this silly combat app is not the game for you. Gang Beasts Simulator uses violence as humor as you attempt to fight off faceless waves of attackers without the support of a spinal column. This results in everyone flopping on the ground and bouncing off each other. While the violence is played for laughs, it's still pretty severe, as characters are tossed into fire pits and run over by trains. That alone might be enough to keep some parents from letting their kids play the game, but the real worrisome part is the lack of a privacy policy. While the game doesn't gather any personal information directly, it doesn't disclose what it might be gathering in the background.
