Spin-off games don't get much more run-of-the mill than this. The Loud House: Outta Control is explicitly meant to please the show's audience. It features the same voices and cartoon presentation as the show, and it's filled with recognizable locations and collectibles that will have meaning for fans (and probably no one else). It plays on the show's premise -- a crowded house filled with kids constantly bumping into each other and getting into squabbles -- in a simple but satisfying way, making a game out of maintaining personal space in a crowded area. Kids unfamiliar with the show will likely lose interest quickly, but those who watch are bound to enjoy what they see, hear, and do in the game.

That said, the rough-around-the-edges action may eventually grow monotonous even for the show's biggest fans. While levels gradually grow in challenge, the objectives and mechanics remain more or less the same. Even if you enjoy drawing and redrawing routes at the start, there's a good chance you'll become a bit bored before reaching the game's end. You can tap a fast-forward button to speed up time and reduce waiting, but that also increases the risk of collision. Complicating matters, a couple of the colors assigned to specific characters are almost indistinguishable, making it easy to confuse them when things get hairy. And there's a space along the screen's edge that you can't see but that acts as an invisible barrier when drawing paths. This can prove especially frustrating when you need to quickly reroute characters on a collision course with each other. The Loud House: Outta Control isn't the sort of game that's worth an Apple Arcade subscription all on its own, but if you're already a subscriber and a fan of the show, there's little harm in taking it for a spin.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
