A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this game.
As you play, you go on quests, which are about protecting the villages and cities. However, some quests require you to kill monsters. Players are encouraged to help each other through the Mentor system which provides rewards to both players. There are also many in-game events run by GMs (Game Masters - employees of Outspark).
Violence & Scariness
Like most MMOGs, you are required to kill monsters to advance in this game, however, monsters just fall over and disappear. There is no gore or blood.

Products & Purchases
Free to play, but with micro-transactions -- small monetary purchases of cosmetic (such as clothing) and consumable items (such as health potions), which is how this game makes it's money.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORG) that is targeted toward the young teen market, especially those who have not played MMORPGs before. It is one of the easier games to learn to play. Kids will find the quick reward system to be very compelling, as is the challenge of playing against other players, so parents may want to monitor the amount of time spent in the game. Wind Slayer is free to download and play, but the game can get expensive if players frequently use real money to buy items in the online item mall or cash shop. Open chat even with a curse word filter have their own inherent dangers, so parents may want to take care that their children are aware of internet etiquette and do not give out personal information. Common Sense Media does not recommend that children under age 12 play online games unsupervised.
Is It Any Good?
Wind Slayer's cute and attractive graphics and engaging gameplay make this a fun MMORG for kids to explore. This is a MMORG that is easy to play.The game is almost "MMO Light" as it features simplified versions of almost all major components in found in subscription-based games, such as combat, PvP, questing and exploration, gathering and mining as well as three crafting skills and keeping pets.
Younger kids will find Wind Slayer approachable due to the graphics and simple game play while older children will find the PvP challenging and the in-game events and socialization via the community boards fun. As long as kids don't get pulled into buying things via the item mall, or spend hours upon hours online, this could be a fun game that, best of all, is free.
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.
