A lot or a little?

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

Ease of Play

Simple touchscreen controls, though buttons are quite small and it's easy to tap the wrong one.

Violence

Players hurl insults at each other to cause them physical pain, but the comments are silly.

Sex

One insult involves a "steamy romp."

Language

The game has you insulting other people, both real and virtual. While there are no obscenities, you do use such ribald words as "fart."

Consumerism
Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Oh...Sir! The Insult Simulator is like a fighting game, but instead of trading punches, you trade silly barbs. The game is playable against the computer, a friend, or a stranger; you pick words and phrases from a list to construct insults that smack of Monty Python. But because there are no curse words, and you have to pick from random words and phrases, the insults end up being more odd than offensive or actually insulting: "Your wife is very naughty and looks like your math teacher!" That said, there is some language, such as the word "fart," and insults can be levied against loved ones such as a character's mother. You also have to use correct grammar. Note: There was no privacy policy available in the game or on the developer's website at the time of review to indicate how information about players may be collected and shared.

Great for the modern day middle schooler

The insults in the game (instead of being mean spirited) are light hearted and funny. If you look at middle schoolers today you will see that this is nothing co... Continue reading

What's it about?

In essence, OH...SIR! THE INSULT SIMULATOR is a fighting game. But instead of punching and kicking your opponents, you have to insult them by assembling a biting barb from a random selection of words and phrases. If you run out of good words or phrases, you can get more by sipping your tea. You also have to use proper grammar and do all this before time runs out. While playing against the computer, friends, or strangers, you string together words and phrases that involve the smell/fashion sense/questionable actions of the other character's mother, sister, math teacher, country, and more. To earn the maximum points, determine your opponent's weakness, such as death, sense of style, and so on.

Is it any good?

By replacing fists and feet with phrases and words, this fighting game is a silly romp that may get stale fast. In Oh...Sir! The Insult Simulator, most of the insults are tame, sometimes even weird: "Your mother acts like you're a frightened schoolboy!" This actually makes the game more comedic than anything else. But while this can be amusing for a while, eventually it gets a a little old. It's also not something most parents would want little kids to play since it involves meanness, even though it's meant in fun. It definitely takes a certain sense of humor to want to play it on a regular basis, and it will take frequent updates of both characters and insults to keep players coming back. Still, it's a unique, fresh, nonviolent game that encourages a twisted sort of creativity and strategy -- so long as players don't take the insults offline.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about the insults in Oh...Sir! The Insult Simulator and in real life. Why is it not appropriate to talk to other people in real life the way you do in this game? Would these insults really hurt a person's feelings? Would some more than others? Why?

  • Talk about grammar. Why is it important to know the rules, even if you don't always follow them when talking to friends and family?
