Scary game for little kids

I think this game is age 8+ because there is violence and scariness in this game. GREAT MESSAGES. Also, Mario could’ve die by enemies and drown but also this is like Mario and Luigi co-op play and Luigi could’ve die too. They also and Mario save Princess Peach.

Great messages
Too much violence
age 6+


There’s not one single inappropriate thing or violent thing in the game. It’s a remake of the classic NES Game super Mario bros. It’s a game the whole family can play
