Apps & Games content ratings on Softonic

Content ratings help you understand the type of content you might find in an app or game, so you can decide if they are suitable for you and your family.

What do the ratings actually tell me?

Content ratings describe the minimum age we feel the content is suitable for. It does not indicate that the app was specifically designed for that particular age, or if a certain level of skill is required to play the game or use the app.

Where can I find the content ratings?

You will find the content ratings on every app or game page.

Why are some apps or games unrated?

If an app or game does not have a rating, it means that it has not yet been rated, or it’s been rated and we’re working to update the page.

Rating Systems

Softonic uses the rating systems by PEGI and ESRB. The ratings you see may vary by country or region.

BOOM is an arcade game in the grand tradition, bringing the playability and feel of the glorious 8-bit consoles on the Macintosh. It can be described as "Bomberman meets Doom". As a space trooper your mission is to penetrate 8 alien infested areas, each one divided in 10 sub-zones, eliminate all enemies using your bombs and finally kick the Big Alien Boss back to where he came from.

BOOM's main features are:

  • Smooth sprite based animations in 256 colors
  • 8 soundtracks and multi-channel sound effects
  • Simultaneous two players action
  • 80 different levels
  • 10 different enemy characters varying in intelligence and weaponry
  • Mid-game monsters and a final Super Boss
  • Online high scores

"A misspent youth"

This game hails from the dark days when almost no one had even heard of Macs, and almost no decent games were out for it. Boom was a haven for those of us kids who had parents who bought the first macs when they came out and have only allowed macs in their house since. It's upbeat music and excellent color scheme combined with simple graphics makes boom a pleasure for the players and anyone who wants to sit and watch. The gameplay is simple but engaging, requiring fast-thinking and fast hands, rather than years of experience using a keyboard. This game is just simple fun, with no mind bending puzzles or frustrating individual challenges. In fact there is only one challenge, see how far you can get. Almost 2 decades after I first played Boom I'm still enjoying it as much as any game out there for any system. Not many games can say that.
