What parents need to know

Ease of play

The game assumes you've played the original Zenonia and there's not much of a tutorial, though a help file can be accessed from the main menu. There are a lot of menus and stats to keep track of, and navigation can be tricky on devices with smaller screens. On the plus side, the virtual directional pad works quite well.

Violence

Players defeat fantasy monsters using melee and ranged weapons such as swords and guns, as well as magic spells. Such encounters are extremely frequent, but there is no blood or gore and enemies simply disappear when defeated.

Sex
Not applicable
Language

Infrequent use of "hell" in dialogue.

Consumerism

A banner ad across the title page advertises more games from the publisher.

Drinking, drugs, & smoking

Parts of the game take place inside pubs.

Privacy & safety

An in-game messaging system lets players send items and gold to one another and include a brief personalized message. Players must exchange ID numbers in order to do so. This is all optional, so you can avoid receiving messages from strangers.

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Zenonia 2 is the sequel to Zenonia, a popular fantasy-themed action role-playing game for mobile devices. The sequel offers similar gameplay and graphics with four different characters to choose from (Paladin, Shooter, Magician, Warrior), each with their own unique storyline to follow. There is violence throughout, but no blood.

QUALITY
 

Like its predecessor, Zenonia 2 offers an impressive amount of gameplay for a mobile role-playing game, including a huge world to explore, hundreds of different enemies and items, and the ability to further customize a character by learning certain skills. The downside is that with so much information packed onto the screen, the game can feel a little claustrophobic on phones with smaller displays, and navigating the numerous menus and sub-menus can be challenging for people with larger fingers.
