A lot or a little?

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

Educational Value

Le Vamp wasn't created with educational intent, and we don't recommend it for learning.

Ease of Play

The game progresses at a gentle pace, letting players get used to the threats before slowly ramping up the speed, making it very accessible. 

Violence

Le Vamp, a vampire prince, gains energy by eating "blood pigs," which the player tosses at him as he runs. There also are several hazards he faces as he flees an angry mob, including monsters and sunlight. Too many of either will allow the mob to catch him, but there's no obvious suffering. 

Sex
Language
Consumerism

Users can purchase in-game currency using real-world money, but this is not thrust upon the player -- and players are able to gain ample currency through playing. 

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Le Vamp is an endless-runner game with supernatural tones. Players must guide a young vampire prince away from an angry mob while ensuring he has sufficient health and avoids the many obstacles in his path. Although there is implied violence in the crowd chasing him, all that players see when the prince ultimately is caught is cartoon puffs of smoke.

Le Vamp... Seriously...

There is a dark reason behind this game

What's it about?

A young vampire prince is trying to escape an ever-chasing mob while avoiding other enemies such as garlic pigs, hostile potatoes, and pumpkins. The antihero runs on his own, but players must watch the environment to find and dispatch hazards (by swiping up or down on them), make bridges (by swiping at the bases), and keeping the prince's health up by tossing \"blood pigs\" to him to eat. Along the way, they must also collect coins, which can be used to purchase power-ups and upgrades.

Is it any good?

The endless-runner genre is getting crowded, but LE VAMP stands apart from the pack, thanks to its cute setting, fun power-ups, and unique environment. Gameplay is paced incredibly well, meaning even young players can have a decent run before things begin moving too fast -- a rare design decision in this genre. The screen actions are very basic but don't get boring. 

The game's power-ups and upgrades are especially fun, adding humor to the game and proving useful at the same time (for example, bacon cologne keeps pigs from running away from you). It's a well-balanced app that fans of the genre will love, even if they're getting tired of these sorts of games.
