Parents need to know that GROWTOPIA is an online building game for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Windows PCs. Players inhabit two-dimensional worlds, harvesting resources to craft new things from hills and houses to complete worlds in which they can create games and stories. Depending on the worlds they create and visit and items they purchase, players may encounter some violence. Guns can be used to attack enemies such as zombies, but graphics are very rudimentary and there's no blood or gore. Online play encourages kids to interact and cooperate with one another, learning from and being inspired by each other. Parents should be aware, though, that players are also encouraged to spend money-and potentially a lot of it-in game's store, where they can buy everything from unique items and rare building materials to VIP passes and backpack upgrades. Note, too, that there's steep learning curve at the start thanks to confusing button mapping and some difficult-to-follow tutorials and objectives. GROWTOPIA is a multiplatform crafting game in which players build and share two-dimensional worlds with a community. It begins with players plopping into share space with a handful of initial tutorial objectives. These include punching stuff to break it into usable resources, planting seeds in the ground to grow harvestable blocks and items, and buying and using locks to keep other players from messing around with your world if you don't want them to. Then players are free to do whatever they like, using their imaginations to build everything from castles and lakes to interactive challenges involving running, jumping, mazes, and combat. Players can work together while building, using text chat window to communicate and collaborate with others. While it's relatively easy to collect many of the resources needed to create basic structures and worlds, other resources-including rare seeds, blocks, weapons, clothing and other items-may need to be purchased from in-game stores using gems bought with real-world money. Players must also spend gems to increase their backpack storage and purchase theme item packs necessary to build certain types of worlds. Hurdles must be overcome in order to have fun with this game, and some come with a price tag, with the first hurdle being the first hour of play. GROWTOPIA begins by unceremoniously plopping players into the world with little in the way of easily accessible guidance and strangely confusing control scheme that assign unexpected functions to action buttons, triggers, and control sticks. But stick with it long enough and you'll overcome these quirks, at which point you may discover that it's actually pretty easy to harvest resources, build things, make doors, edit signs, and do all sorts of other fun creative stuff. Like other crafting and building games, only limit to what you can create in this 2D sandbox is your imagination. And few such games make it easier to join up with and collaborate with friends-even those playing on different platforms.
