Nickelodeon Releases New 'Loud House: Outta Control' Game on Apple Arcade

Apple Arcade added a new game to its catalog of over 100 games on Friday. Loud House: Outta Control features characters from Nickelodeon's hit animated series The Loud House. The single-player family-friendly strategy game, like the show, centers around the zany adventures of 11-year-old Lincoln Loud and his 10 sisters - Lori, Leni, Luna, Luan, Lynn, Lucy, Lana, Lola, Lisa and Lily - and tasks players with completing various tasks before time runs out, and is available now across the iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV. As expected, it has some great animation and designs.

Help the siblings reach their goals and unlock new levels. Don't crash into each other or cause sibling rivalry fights, though -- a task more challenging that it might seem. The timer adds an extra level of mayhem as you direct Lincoln to his comic books or Lana to her mud pies. You'll get bonus points for beating the clock. Every floor of the Loud House has new challenges waiting and special items to collect.

The game is designed to make the player become "part of the family," according to Adrian Wright, Vice President (VP) of Games at Nickelodeon.

"Nickelodeon's Loud House: Outta Control celebrates what makes The Loud House great: Having fun surviving household chaos, generating laughs through characters and their relationships, and grounding gameplay in personal stakes," Wright said in a release.

The game's description on the App Store:

Loud House Outta Control on Apple Arcade: A SuperParent First Look

Draw lines to help the Loud children reach items without bumping into one another.

Loud House: Outta Control is a mobile arcade game on Apple Arcade, which was inspired by the Nickelodeon television series The Loud House. The game asks you to help Lincoln Loud and his many siblings reach the items they love while making sure they don’t bump into one another.

In each level of Loud House: Outta Control, characters will appear from the outside of the screen, and they’ll walk forward automatically. You’re asked to tap and hold on each character, and then drag your finger across the screen to create a walking path for them to follow. The goal is to help each character reach their desired item (or the level's destination) without bumping into another character or a fight cloud. (Fight clouds will randomly appear and automatically move across the screen.)

Each character is associated with different items, and both the characters and the items are color-coded, so you’ll be able to quickly tell which character goes with which item even if you aren’t familiar with each character’s tastes and preferences from the show.

There are also levels that ask every character to reach the same destination. For instance, you may need to have all of the kids clean the dishes in the sink. In these cases, you'll need to time your actions correctly so that two kids don't end up at the destination at the same time.

If you see two characters are about to collide, or if a character is about to hit a fight cloud, you can tap and hold on them and then draw a different line for them to follow, which replaces their original path. If a character hits a fight cloud, they'll disappear from the screen and the level will continue. If two characters collide, you'll fail the level and will need to start over from the beginning.

Each time a character reaches their desired item or destination, you’ll earn points. Every level is timed, so you’re challenged to earn as many points as you can before time runs out.

Finally, you can earn trophies on each stage, depending on your performance. When you unlock a trophy, you’ll also unlock a decorative collectible that you can view in the attic of the Loud house. You can replay stages to earn any trophies you may have missed, or to simply try and increase your high score.

Loud House: Outta Control is available on iOS devices as part of Apple Arcade, Apple’s game subscription service. The game doesn’t include advertisements or in-app purchases. It’s rated 4+.

Check out six minutes of gameplay from Loud House: Outta Control to see if this is a game your family would enjoy.
