Play OverviewPlay Overview

Lil Gator Game (2022) is an action-adventure set on an island playground where a young brother invents exciting games to try and get his older sister to play like they used to. You guide your waddling gator to explore the world as you bop cardboard baddies, climb mountain peaks, glide, fling and jump around. It's unlike other adventures because the world is hewn from child-like imagination. Rag-doll movements, cardboard enemies and homemade wooden swords are the order of the day.

You explore the world and meet inhabitants who need help with everyday tasks. From mountain tops to playgrounds and campsites, it's as much fun finding every nook and cranny of the island as it is completing the quests. What's surprising is how much depth and variety there is here, as the game gently apes different games from Zelda to Ace Attorney to Skyrim.

As you progress you collect arts and craft supplies to create all sorts of items that help the island flourish. From skimming stones to identifying food preferences, repairing broken friendships or even skateboard racing and holding court there's a lot to do.

The result is a story-time experience with a gentle adventure that's about helping others rather than yourself. Running through it are superbly written characters and well-observed tension between siblings growing up and entering different phases of life.

Content Rating

Rated PEGI 3 for occasional very mild violence in a comical or abstract context. Players must frequently defeat 'enemies' by hitting cardboard cut-outs with crayon drawings of monsters on them. There is only one instance of actual violence against a character, but this is very mild and comical, with an exaggerated reaction and no injury. There is use of the terms 'heck' and 'dang it'.

Skill Level

6+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. The simple movement and forgiving climbing make it easier for younger players to enjoy. The setting and the stories are straight from the playground, so with some help on the reading, this is perfect even for those in the early stages of school.


Lil Gator Game usually costs £16.75.
