Play OverviewPlay Overview

Trollhunters: Defenders of Arcadia (2020) is a running and jumping game in the world of Trollhunters. You play Jim Lake Jr. and work to stop Porgon the Trickster Troll and his sneaky plans. With the help of other characters and their abilities, you solve puzzles and defeat enemies to progress the story.

Either on your own or with another player, you journey through time to stop Porgon. As you go you get to upgrade your Trollhunter with new armour and abilities. You also need to pick the right characters to join you on each of the levels so you have the right complementary abilities and attacks to succeed.

Along the way you take on mini-game challenges, big boss battles and a range of platforming puzzles to keep you on your toes.

Content Rating

Rated PEGI 7 for mild violence that lacks any apparent harm or injury to human-like characters. This game features cartoon-like combat between humans and fantasy characters. The violence found in this combat is unrealistic, as are reactions to it: enemies flash on hit, disappear in puffs of smoke when defeated, only a few characters have minor hit animations, and some characters kneel down when defeated. Next to that, the games also features boss fights, some of which pit the player against a dark, menacing foe. The design of some of these monsters would likely scare young children.

Skill Level

6+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. You need some button-pressing skills to time the jumps and use your powers to progress. But this is accommodating for younger players.


Trollhunters: Defenders of Arcadia usually costs £19.99.
