Cool idea based on TV show ruined by consumerism.

Barely even a “game”...

I love The Loud House and I love the idea for this “game”, you’re essentially building a gargantuan treehouse (every kid’s dream!) but despite the seemingly cool idea, there’s really not much to it. You just get the characters to do “quests” by tapping a character and selecting a “quests” and then waiting hours for them to complete it, you can also rearrange the rooms and furniture, but that’s basically it. It’s not really a “game” since you’re not really doing anything. It would be much more fun if the “quest” involved mini games or something interactive related to said “quest”, but nope! Overall, fans of the show will probably get bored of this “game” quickly since there’s almost nothing that would keep you coming back (there are some short “stories” that correspond with the “quests” but they’re not particularly intriguing) and non-fans will probably be confused and have no idea what’s going on nor see the appeal. There’s not a whole lot of instructions in this game, but that’s no problem since it’s really easy to figure out on your own. The gameplay is super easy, you just tap the screen to do things. There’s a lot of ads, but not so many that it’s distracting. There’s a lot of in app purchases too, but they’re not needed to progress in the game. Other than that it’s fine for kids, no violence, profanity etc. I’m rating it 6+ since there is some reading involved and kids younger than 6 are probably more prone to accidentally clicking on ads and in app purchases.

Is It Any Good?

Kids say (4 ):

This is one of those cool, every-kid-dreams-of-this ideas, but between ads and purchases without a parent gate, it's just not kid-friendly. Who wouldn't want to build their dream tree house? In Loud House: Ultimate Treehouse, kids have the chance to practice their design skills, but there's not a lot of room for creativity. It's a matter of waiting until characters ask for something and then providing it. There is some control over where things are placed, but that's about it. In the meantime, kids will do a lot of grinding to earn the coins to pay for whatever demands their characters issue next. The other thing that's missing is the flavor of the TV show. The characters are there, but they are too busy plotting their next purchase to do anything meaningful. Some kids will enjoy playing with characters from a favorite TV show, but there simply isn't a lot to grab onto here, and plenty of opportunities to spend.
