Content Descriptors: Cartoon Violence, Language, Suggestive Themes

Rating Summary: This is an action platformer in which players control tiny gummy characters on a quest to find “candy heaven.” As players run, jump, and swing through each side-scrolling level, they collect floating candy pieces and avoid “cartoony” hazards (e.g., chewing-gum blobs, spilled soda, spinning saw blades); gummy characters squeal and disappear when hit. Boss battles occur infrequently, with players jumping on enemies' heads or completing specific button combinations. During the course of the game, a narrator sometimes makes suggestive comments (e.g., “So a few weeks back this pre-pubescent teen got distracted by some jiggly parts . . .”). An unlockable music video also depicts a man making an exaggerated gesture with his hands (i.e., lyrics mention a “penis pump”). The words “sh*t” and “b*tch” can be heard in the dialogue.
