How kid appropriate is this game? Are the pictures too bloody or scary looking?

I have not played this or Last Night on Earth? Which game would be better for 10 year olds?

Thanks!

Remembering that none of them are either scary or gory to me, I'd say this is more kid-friendly than LNoE. Barring a fair bit of cleavage, there's little to worry about here, whereas LNoE does include the odd disembowelment and some severed limbs... gulp Of course, it's not exactly adults-only stuff, but a friend of mine with kids (6 & 10, I think) did agree.

Depends on the kid.

Zombies have a way higher "cool!" factor, IMHO. But LNoE is probably a little bit more graphic.

I think LNoE is a better game, and would probably be more fun for kids.

If they were both movies, LNoE would probably get a PG-13, while AToE would likely get a PG.

Firstly, the images in the galleries for both AToE and LNoE are very representative. You should browse through if you have any doubts.

In my house, Bela Lugosi's 1931 Dracula has been very popular with all my girls for a couple of years, the youngest just turned 6, the eldest will soon turn 12. AToE was our first Flying Frog game, due to theme and as the artwork is less bloody and scary looking than LNoE. That said, we've since gone ahead and picked up LNoE because, for all that, what they get out of it is the occasional "ewww" with LNoE, but the 6 yr old still loves having her zombies chase after people.

We give the nod to AToE because of the villain variety which we've enjoyed.

What about the level of sexualization? AToE seems to sport a lot of cleavage, based on the image on the front of the box. Is this overdone/tasteless? Does it continue throughout the game in general?

What is the comparison with LNoE?

Darn spelling edits . . . I can't type.

There's about as much cleavage in AToE as you'd see in a BBC period costume drama. AToE has less cleavage, but more ripped clothing. Neither have much of what I'd consider 'sexual content'.

Pity, in some cases...

I don't consider the cleavage quotient in AToE inappropriate. Considering the timeframe in which it was set, it is not overdone. I can't draw a comparison with LNoE as I don't own the main game yet.

I think that AToE is one of the most kid appropriate games that I know. Very little sexual content in AToE and in LNoE, although I think that the gore level can be high in LNoE.

Cheerio,
A
