Story & Themes
The player has a spellbook with a list of spells, which are all made of strings of Java code. The player completes quests by using the spells (and learning the Java language in the process).
The player can stay at any time.
The game is relatively complex. This is no Pokemon game. However, if a child likes quest games, games that require thinking, and they are proficient readers, then they'll do fine. It takes time to get really into this game but it's easy once you figure it out.
Violence There is no violent content but the other characters in the game can get hurt and you can see blood on them.
Scary Imagery There are monsters in the game that may be scary for younger children and the characters themselves look unusual, but the game is not overly scary.
Sex & Nudity There is no sexual content in the game.
Strong Language There is no foul language in the game.
Substance Use There is no substance use in the game.
Consumerism There is no consumerism in the game.
Discrimination There is a complete lack of sexuality, gender, and ethnicity in the game, making it fun for everyone but definitely missing the chance for representation.
