Brief outline of the game

Content specific issues
The graphics are pixelated and have a 16 bit feel to them. The animations are fluent and natural. The game has a fantasy feel to it which shapes the levels and enemies. The violence in the game is aimed at pixelated human-like characters and monsters. These monsters can consist of blobs, flying eye balls, skeleton warriors etc. You can defeat enemies by jumping on their heads or by shooting them with your bow and arrow. When an enemy is hit by an arrow, they get knocked back and grind to a halt or are stopped by a wall. Since the game is pixelated, there isn’t much detail in the violence.
The fantasy monster theme isn’t enough to warrant a PEGI Fear pictogram. However, the setting could be disturbing to younger children.
