Story & Themes
Lara Croft GO finds adventurer Lara Croft in a mysterious jungle. In order to figure out what's going on in the area, she must find and retrieve three different keys with the help of a few rudimentary maps. Each key can only be collected after Lara has explored and navigated the puzzles found in each area, a task that involves strategic thinking on the player's part. Lara will also defeat the occasional enemy, and in instances when she cannot find a way to sneak around the foe, she will strategically attack it.
The game's controls are the usual tapping and swiping of a touchscreen, and altogether the difficulty level is not particularly high. While strategy is definitely involved in combating enemies and solving puzzles, a few attempts should be enough to overcome any of the challenges.
Violence Lara attacks enemies, such as giant snakes and lizards, with an assortment of weapons that includes pistols and spears. Once killed, enemies merely flicker and disappear. No blood is present.
Consumerism If players so choose, they can purchase additional outfits for Lara, or pay to gain the solutions for puzzles. This is all entirely optional, however.
