Parent's Guide

Manage your child's account

If your child previously created a Castle account and marked you as their parent, we can email you a link to manage their account.

What is Castle?

Castle is an app for making and playing simple games created right on your phone or tablet.

Thousands of games are made on Castle every day. You can use Castle to send a simple birthday card to a single friend, or you can post your game publicly to reach the wider Castle community.

Anyone can make games

You don’t need to know how to code in order to start creating on Castle. We provide “kits” of game parts that can simply be dragged onto the screen to create complete experiences.

Powerful and personal

For the curious, Castle’s editor is surprisingly deep. Every game element can be opened up and modified, enabling endless creative potential and unique personal expression.

Practicing together

By building on each other’s work in a social community, amateurs are supported in their discovery and practice of foundational skills in art, programming, and music.

Keeping your child safe

Castle accounts for folks under 13 are limited for their safety.

You’re in control

Children under 13 need parental approval to create accounts on Castle, and the parent has the ability to revoke their child’s account at any point in the Parent Dashboard.

Communication restrictions

In order to prevent the sharing of personal details, child accounts on Castle aren’t able to leave comments, or use text, photos, or audio recordings in the games they make.

Content filters

Games on Castle are categorized according to their contents, and we limit child accounts from viewing games that portray age-inappropriate subject matter.

Reporting & moderation

Participation on Castle must adhere to our Community Guidelines, and anyone can report problematic behavior to our moderation team.

Data privacy

Castle does not display anyone’s real names or emails, and child accounts are unable to add biographies or external links. We do not share data on child accounts with third parties. Visit our Privacy Policy for more information on our privacy practices in general and for children under 13 specifically.
