Pretty scary and gruesome things this game has only for tough kids

I have played a bit of this game the first thing i thought was T for teen and it only has 2 citations from esrb how bad can it be. While the game is challenging their is many deaths that are not lego type of deaths from this game like drowning, crushed, impaled, traps that kill the player in gruesome way or attacked by other ones like your main character you play. The creep factor is spiders and other things in this gameAlthough as far as i see from the game their isn't any blood in the game(maybe due to the black and white ground) this game is where it stands. If your son/daughter likes scary stuff and knows this stuff is a bit wrong with parent guidance and then i would recommend this game to children of 11 years old players 10 or below might be scared and scarred for things that go on in this game.Since their is only two buttons and directional pad i feel like this would be easy to use but not to play as this game requires some level of thinking to solve. The concept of the premise of this game will be confusing to younger children.
