The Binding of Isaac Rebirth

ESRB - Last week's updates

Goosebumps: The Game

Platform: Nintendo 3DS

Rating Category: Everyone 10+ Rating Symbol

Content Descriptors: Fantasy Violence

Rating Summary: This is a puzzle game in which players help a teenager solve a mystery. From a first-person perspective, players explore different environments, interact with characters, and solve a series of puzzles to progress the storyline. A handful of sequences depict a creature lunging towards the player's screen; dialogue and text reference violence in detail, adding to the dark tone (e.g., “Your vision blurs as the plant creature's vines tighten around your neck'; “A shudder wracks through your body and you start to feel heavy'; '[H]e recoils violently as it hits his face. Smoke rises from the wounds...').

Other:
Includes online features that may expose players to unrated user-generated content (Nintendo 3DS)

Rating Summary: This is a side-scrolling adventure game in which players explore various terrain while crafting objects and battling foes. As players search and mine for materials they encounter “cartoony” animals and fantasy creatures (e.g., zombies, bats, slimes, flying eyeballs). Players use swords, axes, and bows to kill enemies that sometimes burst into small pieces/fragments. Text sometimes describes the manner in which characters die: “[Player] was brutally dissected by explosives”; “...entrails were ripped out…”; “...eviscerated…” During the course of the game, players can craft power-up/enhancement items that include kegs and ale; as players consume ale their status sometimes reads “tipsy.”

Rating Summary: This is a platformer game in which players help a tiny robot stop invading aliens. As players traverse side-scrolling levels, they use a power cord to solve puzzles, collect coins, and defeat enemy robots. Enemies generally break apart amid colorful flashes of light when defeated. Boss battles against giant robots and enemy ships depict more protracted combat with brief explosions.
