A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this game.
Good can overcome evil. Anyone can make a difference, no matter how young they are -- or how bleak the situation appears.
Positive Role Models
Four main characters protect multiple dimensions from destruction by working together, never arguing or worrying about personal agendas, and always being friendly and optimistic.
Ease of Play
Controls are straightforward, with simple button presses for attacks.
Violence & Scariness
Combat is between large mechanized robots, so players never see characters in pain. Defeated enemies vanish. Colorful weapons detach the impact of violence.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Tenkai Knights: Brave Battle is a robot-fighting game based on the anime TV series Tenkai Knights. Players customize their combatants with armor, colors, weapons, etc. and then fight a series of enemy robots using fantasy weapons. Opponents simply disappear when defeated, and there's no depiction of injury. Mild language includes "hell" in dialogue.
Is It Any Good?
Tenkai Knights: Brave Battle has some charm, with its simple presentation, controls, and graphics. It's easy to pick up and play, with only three types of attack: weak, strong, and special. Players don't need to worry about crazy combination attacks, defense strategies, counterattacks, or any advanced elements. And you can customize your robots with armor and weapons, using pieces you collect, which provides some incentive to keep playing through the onslaught of enemies.
But you'll find that the game quickly becomes monotonous. Environments may have different colors and other flourishes, but they feel like copies of one another, with very little variety in terms of layout and structure. Also, there's not much that separates the enemies, making each battle feel like the same thing. The result is a game novices can enjoy but likely will become bored with.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
