Common sense media has rated this 13+ but there is no blood and is just a simple build a base and fight over people sort of game. Star wars commander is very fun and is a good addition to any star wars fan.

Standard multi-player game

There aren't a lot of reviews for this game, so if you want to know - go read the reviews of 'Clash of Clans'. It's very similar, except this time with a skin for 'Star Wars'. Big thing to watch out for - chat if your child joins a clan. The language can be pretty nasty. If you make a rule that your child can't join a clan, the game is fine.

Is It Any Good?

Although it's loaded with Star Wars references and nostalgia, you can't help but get a Clash of Clans vibe from this strategic, resource-management title. That's hardly a bad thing, since that game is one of the most successful apps around, but there don't seem to be a lot of immediately unique qualities to Commander, other than its well-known universe.

Still, that universe adds a lot. The ability to play as either the Empire or the Rebels is a fun twist -- and you'll get a thrill when familiar characters from the film briefly appear. The single-player campaign seems a bit longer, too, letting players practice and figure out tactics without suffering frustrating defeats. It's a slow, methodical game, which makes it less than ideal for younger players, but for fans of traditional strategy games, there's plenty to like here -- assuming they didn't get their fill of Clash of Clans gameplay already. It's also important to talk to your kids about online privacy and safety before they get too far into the game: Though the in-game chat is mostly play-related and is text-only, it would be easy to offer up personal information or feel pressured to do so by other players.
