WackyLands Boss

Monster's the antihero in this fairy tale, and he's violent.

What parents need to know

Ease of play

Controls are fairly straightforward, using taps and swipes to control the monster. Difficulty ramps up pretty early on, as enemies become quicker and more plentiful.

Violence

While there is no blood or gore, your monster punches, stomps, breathes fire, and more to defeat waves of enemies (including knights, archers, wizards, and cannons). You can equip your monster with a variety of weapons, such as a spiked club, an iron sword, or a morningstar "for the Boss that prefers its meat soft and tender." To regain health, the monster eats princesses.

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that in WackLands Boss, the protagonist doesn't save the princess -- it eats princesses for strength. This antihero is a monster who gets tired of castles blocking its view of the countryside and decides to go on a rampage to destroy them all. Players will have to defeat waves of stereotypically "good guy" opponents -- like knights -- and face off against powerful boss monsters to win. There's no blood or gore, but the monster vanquishes its enemies in violent ways.

Is it any good?

QUALITY

In WACKYLANDS BOSS, players don't control the good guys, rather, they become the rampaging villain who wipes out hordes of more traditional heroes in a variety of violent but cartoonish ways. The beat-em-up gameplay is pretty rudimentary -- essentially, levels get tougher because enemies move more quickly and more of them crowd onto the screen at once. You can customize your monster's appearance and abilities by choosing from hundreds of styles and equipment that get unlocked as you play.
