Age RatingsAge Ratings

Content Rating

Rated PEGI 7 for violence against fantasy or mythical beings and creatures. Players need to navigate obstacles, solve puzzles and stay clear of environmental hazards. Environmental hazards will include anything from real-life animals to pools of acid. When Yarny is caught by one of the animals, he is trashed around rather violently and the screen will fade to black. There are slightly creepy settings in this game such as dark caves and thunderstorms. In one sequence Yarny almost gets hit by a car, this is a rather abrupt scene that can startle players.

Rated for younger players in the US. Rated ESRB EVERYONE for Mild Fantasy Violence. Players traverse platforms and avoid hazards by swinging from yarn lassos; some areas contain animals that chase/menace the player's characters. The Yarnys are defeated when they are eaten by a fish, grabbed by birds, crushed by boulders, or run over by cars.
