I got this game for the PS4 a few weeks ago. I constantly check the PS Store for a game that I would feel comfortable letting my 7 year old play. I have purchased DigDug, PacMan, and Galaga. This was the first current title that looked versatile enough to be played at any pace without having to fight your way through.
I was concerned about the "fantasy violence" on the ESRB rating. So far, the worst is that the child gets grabbed by a bird (this is the level I am on now). No big deal becuse you just re-appear and get to try again. Kudos to the developers on making a game that is great fun to play. Thank you.
