A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Ease of Play

The Muppets Animal Drummer begins with a tutorial that explains basic game play and allows users to practice. From there, each round gets increasingly difficult. The difficulty does go up rather quickly, but as with other rhythm/music games, the expectation is that you'll keep playing until you learn each song.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that The Muppets Animal Drummer is a rhythm game that allows you to play along with everyone's favorite Muppet drummer. In Classic Mode, players repeat sequences of drum beats, trying to match both the drum head and the timing. It's similar in concept to the old-school memory game, Simon. In Freeplay, players can choose their own drums and timing as they play along with either songs from the game, or their own songs saved on their device. Users also have the option of creating an account to upload their scores to the leaderboard.

Is it any good?

THE MUPPETS ANIMAL DRUMMER brings all the craziness of Animal together with a memory/rhythm game for some musical fun. The Classic Mode has six songs. You'll need to conquer all of them on novice level to unlock the "Animal" level of play, which ups the difficulty significantly. It's fun, and strangely relaxing at times, to drum along with Animal. But as the games progress, so does the difficulty, and you'll definitely need to practice to successfully complete the higher levels. If you enjoy rhythm games and don't mind a challenge, this is a lot of fun. And, if you need a break, switch over to Freestyle mode and tap out some beats of your own.
