Pornography. The sneaky way around Parental controls.

A way around content ratings and parental controls. My underage child has been using this app to access pornography. I've deleted images every time I've checked his devices. I find new images each time, for the last several years. He's using this app and a few (seemingly harmless) apps to get around the parental controls I've had set for years. I used to allow app downloads with my approval only, but have learned I cannot trust my own research.

User's experience vary

This game is great fun but your child can easily be exposed to bullying and explicit materials. Especially now when existing players who have been playing for years get angered that new players come into the game. Some will go out of their way to bully and harass your child.

Great game horrible everything else

I love the gameplay, it’s fun and easy but everything makes it impossible and both times I when on it left me feeling terrible. 1. The camera, there’s a black ring that appear when walking that you can’t get take away 2. Microphones, if your on a public game some people mics takes over everyones making it impossible to talk to other 3. Reporting, you could be doing nothing and be bam from a game for no reason but the people who are breaking the rules walk free 4. Blocking, it’s haven’t worked for me so, I keep get on servers with people I’ve block for harassment 5. Public rooms, almost every room I get on there’s someone harassing me and blocking hasn’t work, and bullies have taken over the game to the where it’s unplayable and for people who don’t have many friends with vrs I can’t join private rooms 6. The game has in game items that you game buy with in game currency, the currency requires real money (you game earn the in game currency but it’s really slow) for the price of the items it’s way to much for a game I really want to give the game a good rating because it deserve 4 stars but there’s so much that needs fixed to make it playable again

Like the game, super fun! But one thing to point out!

I think the game is fun! Its like Roblox in game selection, but its different. Its fun! But if your kid is under 13, the junior account is basically a slap in the face. The problem is they advertise it as a social game --targeted towards kids under 13 based off of paintball and pizza-- with a mic like you are actually meeting your friends. But you cant use the social features if you use a junior account. Bait and switch for players under 13, but it is very fun and I suggest you try it. Little to no violence, swearing 1-2/10 frequency.

A lot of things you can think about

The game has labelled for 13+,, but there's no age verification and you get the young ones there. The concern is the main lobby rec center, you'll have trolls, racist, homophobic and sexual behaviors. You can report but kids shouldn't be exposed to it so they have an option to block and or report the player or players that are involved. You can make it a great community especially adults to relate on your positivity and pass it on to the kids. Socializing is great but also has a lot of games. My advice, record your session and if you get bad people, report, block them. Bad side it has a lot of bugs, the game crashes and freezes.

Difficult to supervise

It’s a fun and creative game. Unfortunately, it’s similar to Roblox in that other users can behave inappropriately and there’s little you can do about it- if you even know. This game is just too difficult to supervise and they can’t unsee things. Worth the wait in age on this one!

Its great

Its a great game, my kids love it, it takes into account their age and ages 12 and under are sort of shielded from going into custom rooms, and hearing/talking to other people. But most people on it are kids, most of them nice and happy to help as well
