A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this game.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Stealth Inc. 2: A Game of Clones is a downloadable puzzle game where players navigate a maze of lasers, chasms, wind turbines, and other obstacles to clear each level. Although the gameplay involves animated robots in intentionally crudely drawn environments, there's some rattling visual imagery, including dark red blood splatter on the walls, as well as nondescript splashes of fluid when some characters are destroyed. Players also will need a lot of experience and skill with puzzles to succeed; otherwise frustration could easily set in.
