A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this app.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Pocket Legends is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORG) game that is played on iDevices for free. Players get two areas which equates to several hours of game play for dowloading this free app. Once they are done with the free areas, kids will have to pay for new adventure areas which fortunately are not expensive at about $2.00 each. Parents also need to know that since this is an MMORPG, that kids will play online with others and have the ability to openly chat with strangers. Kids can also play against each other by selecting the PvP (player against player) games.

Is it any good?
In POCKET LEGENDS, kids play as a bear (warrior), an eagle (archer), or an elf (enchantress) and explore dungeons and forests. They take on quests from towns folks to find lost items, and to help protect the town and forests from brigands, zombies, trolls, and other assorted monsters. Designed to be played in short sessions, Pocket Legends is very easy to pick-up and learn. The characters and animations are cute and engaging in a cartoon style. The beauty of Pocket Legends comes in the game choices. Kids can play solo by creating a new game and locking it with a password and then only allow their friends into the game if they have the password. The game requires an account and password, so parents can choose to set the game up in this manner before letting their kids have their iPhones/IPads. The same goes for the Player vs. Player (PvP) games, in that kids don't have to play against strangers, plus they can skip this option completely..
