Pixelkin has covered Broken Age and Chariot before—they’re both family-friendly favorites and come with high recommendations. Broken Age is a quirky adventure puzzle game about two teenagers who find themselves traversing very different worlds that are somehow linked. Chariot is a puzzle platformer that follows a young married couple in their mission to bring the dad’s casket to its final resting place. (It’s not as grim as it sounds, we promise.) Both games are kid-friendly. However, while Chariot is strongest in its co-op play, it’s definitely a higher grade of difficulty.

Meanwhile Super Meat Boy is a “brutally difficult platformer,” rated T for teen for Animated Blood, Cartoon Violence, Crude Humor, and Language. (The main bad guy is called ‘Dr. Fetus’ if that gives you a clearer picture of its content.) Unmechanical: Extended is a puzzle game that puts the player in control of a silent robot that propels itself with helicopter blades attached to its head. Kickbeat is a martial arts-themed rhythm game, and Kung Fu Rabbit is a very cute game about a rabbit who has to adventure around to save baby rabbits while performing martial arts. Unmechanical: Extended and Kung Fu Rabbit are both rated E for Everyone, while Kickbeat and Super Meat Boy are both T for Teen.
