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.

If only on STEAM

I played this game awhile ago on my phone but now as I’ve grown up, I realize that they are missing a HUGE market if they would just open the game up on steam. Unfortunately, massive oversight is what’s keeping me away from rejoining this game and spending money. I know all my friends and family agree that Battle Cats needs and upgrade, but oh well.

It depends on your kid

The game is rated 9+ on the AppStore when it should be rated 12 or 13+. If your child is below the age of 10 this should be a no go, the game involves a lot of difficult strategy along with some adult themes hidden behind the face of a cat, ie unrealistic breast, a cat named “bondage cat” or “dom cat” or “sexy legs cat” although the actual designs are more silly and kid friendly so this will probably go over their head. If your kid is between the age of 10-12 there exists a grey area, it all depends on what you as a parent feel and how mature they are for their age. Personally I let my child play it at 11. And if they’re 13+ this game should be fine
