A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this website.
Like all game sites, it's easy for kids to get sucked into to playing around.
Violence & Scariness
Despite the section of games titled Blow Things Up,the majority of the games aren't violent at all. Those that are, don't involve any gory images.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that although one of the featured categories of games on this site is called Blow Things Up, most of the most popular games aren't violent at all. The site says it won't allow users under 13, but it's easy to lie about your age to download games (users only need to enter an email address and select a year of birth). Also, one major advertiser is a company soliciting users to test products and take online surveys and also doesn't have any checks in place to confirm users' ages. However, parents can download the site's game console, which automatically gives users several hundred games -- and gives parents special access to limit which ones kids can open. The games don't work on a Mac.
Is It Any Good?
Users need one key thing to enjoy WildGames.com: a lot of time. Some games take 10 minutes or more to download. And it's good to note that Mac users are out of luck as the games are .exe files and only work on PCs. Users click "play" and must download each individual game -- slowly -- to their desktop to use them.
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.
