Inside the Apple App Store
You will see many options to guide your game choice, here is the key information to look out for:
Mobile games are designed for the purpose of entertainment. But that does not mean that all games are the same. Each game has its own style, content, and mechanics, and not every game will be for everyone.
That’s why we encourage all players, parents, carers, and guardians to seek as much information as possible before they start to play or download the game, most of which will be found in the app store.
App stores are marketplaces for ‘apps’ and are the most common place to browse and download mobile games, whether for your phone or tablet. While all app stores serve the same purpose, it is important to bear in mind that they may differ in presentation.
To help you navigate your way through, we have created this visual walk through of what to look out for when downloading a game from the Apple App Store.
