Advice for consumers

This game has received a PEGI 7 because it features mild violence that lacks any apparent harm or injury to human like characters, non-realistic looking violence towards characters which although human are not very detailed, violence that lacks any apparent harm or injury to fantasy or mythical beings and creatures and pictures or sounds likely to be scary to young children.

Brief outline of the game

As a demon army besieges his village, a young ninja ventures through a cursed world, to deliver a scroll paramount to his clan’s survival. What begins as a classic action platformer soon unravels into an expansive time-traveling adventure full of thrills, surprises, and humor.

Content specific issues

All enemies disintegrate in a well-known flash, typical to games like this from the 90s, and sometimes leave behind an item. The enemies range from simple skeletons and bats to strange organic beasts, infected mushrooms and other abominations. The violence towards the human can be described as ‘non-detailed’ due to the pixelated graphics, and mild. No real reaction is shown when hit. When you die, you respawn at a check point and have to pay some sort of penalty. Some of the bosses in this game are quite disturbing. There is a four headed demon, a evil moth that transforms to an evil bat, an abomination from a different dimension, etc. These boss characters are detailed and disturbing enough to trigger a PEGI fear content descriptor.
