A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Ease of Play
Base game very easy to learn; complex upgrade/rune/building systems take longer to absorb.
Violence & Scariness
The core of the game is combat, but violence is non-graphic and cartoony. There's no blood or indication of injury, and eliminated monsters simply vanish.

Sex, Romance & Nudity
There is no sexual imagery or suggestive language, but several of the female characters are buxom and scantily clad.

Products & Purchases
Prompts to use the in-game store appear every time you load up the game, and another prompt appears at least once per session.
Drinking, Drugs & Smoking
One monster is called the "Drunken Master." He weaves around, clearly intoxicated, and his powers involve mentions of alcohol.

Parents Need to Know
Is It Any Good?
Creature-collection games are big among school-age kids, and this strategy game leverages that popularity, but the in-app purchases, buxom female characters, and in-game chat might give parents pause. On the upside, it's vibrant and cute, with a surprising amount of narrative and side objectives to keep kids busy. The sound design is expertly done, and the energy-based system is generous and allows for long play sessions without the need to purchase anything. Though technically it's all about combat, the near-nonstop fighting is merely a means to an end. However, the ungoverned player chat -- though game-focused -- and sexualized female characters might not work for all parents. Also, players are repeatedly reminded to buy things, and the leveling system relies heavily on tedious hours of repetition, so it requires patience and the ability to resist the temptation of making in-app purchases when prompted.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
