Irreverent Facebook title pokes fun at other social games.
A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this game.
Rabbids Invasion wasn't created with educational intent, and we don't recommend it for learning.
Rabbids Invasion consistently pokes fun at other social games, but in a way that's slyly subversive rather than smug. The game offers some questionable commentary during its quests, like "Remember kids, spying is only bad if you get caught."
Positive Role Models
The rabbids are portrayed as fun-loving, mischievous, and naughty, but not "bad." They aren't great role models, but you can't help but be amused by their ultimately harmless antics.
Ease of Play
The game is easy to learn and play, and players receive guidance about what to do next in the form of tutorials and quests.
Violence & Scariness
There is some cartoon violence. Rabbids can get shocked by lightning bolts, and players can click on their neighbors' rabbids to set them on fire. The effect is intended to be cartoony and humorous, and there's no gore.

Products & Purchases
Players can buy a premium currency called Toilet Rolls, or earn it by completing partner offers, and spend it to speed up the game, bypass quests, or purchase exclusive items. Players are also encouraged to recruit friends in the game through invites and wall posts.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Rabbids Invasion is an irreverent social game with occasional examples of mischief and comic violence, including references to vomit and flatulence, and the ability to set other Rabbids on fire. Players can decorate their avatar to look like the rabbid is dipping its hand into a pile of poo on the ground. The game is free to play but players can spend real world money to speed up quests and unlock exclusive items.

What’s It About?
The Raving Rabbids are back, and this time they've invaded Facebook itself in the franchise's first foray into social gaming. RABBIDS INVASION is a spoof on popular social games like FarmVille and CityVille, the premise being that instead of building a homestead or city from the ground up, Rabbids "invade" other players' farms and towns by taking over buildings and decorations one by one, thereby transforming the landscape into a garish caricature that reflect the Rabbids' warped sense of style. Players gradually unlock more and more territory, and can expand to new terrains.
Is It Any Good?
Its cheeky premise aside, Rabbids Invasion basically follows the same conventions as the social games it's meant to be lampooning. Instead of growing conventional crops, players plant things like roast chickens in the ground and wait for them to "mature." Quirky quests ask players to do things like scare cute animals out of town rather than rescue them, "bug friends" (ask for items on friends' walls), or toggle the sound on and off five times. The animations are wonderful, and players will be treated to scenes of Rabbids playing bumper cars, diving off conveyor belts into giant vats of mud, attending a giant marshmallow roast, and more. Like most Facebook games, Rabbids Invasion is still carefully engineered to entice players into spending real-world cash and spam their friends, but the Rabbids bring their own unique sense of fun and mischief to the genre.
