PEGI 7+ with fear and violence. ESRB rated this EVERYONE 10+: Players use swords and magic spells to defend against fantastical enemies (e.g., giants, ghosts, stone statues); enemies generally cry out and disappear amid puffs of smoke. The game includes some thematic elements within text (e.g., a child's death, a reference to being poisoned); one cutscene depicts a woman dying. A handful of sequences depict drunk characters (e.g., birds drinking from bottles, hiccuping, stumbling); some characters also smoke tobacco pipes.
9+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. THe fairytale design and setting make this attractive to younger players. Provided they can learn the fighting mechanics and platforming accuracy there is a lot to enjoy here.
