This game was designed for at least two people to play when they're in the same room, but it's best left to older kids or adults because of the content that's included. In the Competitive or Casual mode of Shoutrageous!, two teams of one person or more pass the phone back and forth in rounds. One team or person guesses items that may be associated with a topic -- a list titled Different Kinds of Boots, for example, features options such as cowboy, ankle, and motorcycle -- while the other team or player clicks on any of the items on the screen that are named. In the Casual mode, you're aiming for the highest number of correct answers, but in Competitive, teams get five points for most responses, and 10 for a bonus response. They also play a reverse round at the end where points are subtracted from a 50-point total, based on each clue they need the other team to read before they're able to guess the topic.
There are a few ways to vary gameplay, like a Progressive Timer option that gives 15 seconds for guesses, and awards five extra seconds for each correct one. Players can also opt to skip categories -- three times in the Competitive mode, and as many times as they want in Casual. The game's overall format is similar to Family Feud -- except the potential responses didn't come from a survey, so some can seem a little random. Also, some of the topics -- like What You Won't See Someone Wearing at a Nudist Colony -- may not be appropriate for a younger audience. Since some of the categories touch on adult themes, parents might not want kids to use the app unsupervised. Even if kids steer clear of those items, the other topics they may encounter, which can involve subject matter like the symptoms associated with being in love and TV shows with an adult audience, may be outside of their general interest area. Finally, only six of the 17 Shoutrageous! game options are free. The rest require a fee to access them. This alone may make Shoutrageous! enjoyable -- if you're an older player only.
