Short takes

This is a runner style game which is very similar to Mario World where the player navigates a character (Leprechaun) through different environments. Not recommended for children under 9 years due to advertising, in-app purchasing and social media connectivity and parental guidance recommended for children under 13 years of age.

App description

Lep’s Worlds 2 is a runner style game very similar to Mario world.  The player must move the character (a Leprechaun) through a variety of environments encountering different challenges. The Leprechaun can run, jump and shoot pine cones, and collect coins and other treasures on the way to complete each level.

Reviewers comments

The game is visually appealing and easy to use, it may be helpful for building fine motor skills and coordination but mainly it’s just an entertainment type app.

Within this game the player has the opportunity to connect to social and to make in-app purchases with real money (with no password protection). 

Therefore this app is not recommended for children under 13 years of age.   

In App purchasing

It is easy to click and purchase ‘lives’ and other items relevant to game play.

About games and gambling

Most games contain elements of risk, chance and knowledge, that is why they are fun to play. There is growing concern about the impacts of simulated gambling games on the health and wellbeing of children. That's why we are identifying games that contain gambling elements on our site.

The State Government of South Australia's web site http://nogame.com.au/ contains information about these concerns.
