PEGI has released a free application for iPad, iPhone and iPod in the UK.

Parents can now quickly consult the PEGI database to deem whether a game is suitable for their children to play.

PEGI is the pan-European body whose game ratings are legally enforceable in the UK. PEGI is taking over from the BBFC, although this transition hasn't happened at retail level yet.

That's why you still see BBFC and PEGI ratings on boxes. Cor get a move on etc.

You can download the PEGI app from the App Store now.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
