iPhone + iPad

Overall Score: 66/100

version reviewed: 1.03

reviewed:


Best for: Brain teasers, Attention & concentration, Thinking & problem solving

What it is/what you do with it: a puzzle game featuring a Lego Mindstorms robot.

Program the robot (by dragging and dropping the commands onto the timeline), so he can navigate the factory and find lost battery packs.

24 levels in this game with increasing difficulty.

What we liked: the concept. LEGO-themed 3D-like graphics. Variety of challenges (least number of attempts, least number of moves, least number of errors or the shortest time). Easy controls. Good educational value. Overall quality of the app.

What we didn't like: the hints feature is a bit limited. We missed some sort of introduction/tutorial.

Android

Overall Score: 65/100

version reviewed: 2.0.0

reviewed:


Best for: Games, Attention & concentration, Creativity, Eye-hand coordination, Interaction, Thinking & problem solving, Understanding of the world

What it is/what you do with it: a simple arcade game with vehicles built from virtual LEGO bricks.

Build a vehicle from pre-set parts (4 parts for each vehicle), then drive it and collect small LEGO pieces along the way (good score unlocks additional vehicle parts).

What we liked: easy operation, the 'fun factor', precise control and response of the vehicles. A nice app for the younger LEGO fans.

What we didn't like: limited number of vehicle parts, the game is not too challenging for more 'game-savvy' players. The puzzle minigames are very simple. The colors are somehow dull. Limited educational value.

LEGO® DUPLO® JAMS for Android

Android

Overall Score: 51/100

version reviewed: 1.0

reviewed:


Best for: Music & rhythm, Attention & concentration, Eye-hand coordination, Interaction, Memory, Music & art, Thinking & problem solving

What it is: 5 songs with the LEGO DUPLO theme and a simple memory game.

What you do with it: listen to the songs and watch simple animations (e.g. the LEGO train running through the forest). Touch the objects in the scene for extra sounds and interaction (like change the colors of the rainbow). Record up to 3 own sounds for each scene. Play a very simple version of the memory game with 3 pairs of pictures.

What we liked: not much...

What we didn't like: limited interaction with not much purpose (mostly touching the objects to make them jump or speed up or slow down), many objects will be too difficult to control for smaller kids (they will be difficult to grab or they just move too fast). The memory game has 3 pairs of the same pictures every time you play the game. Very limited educational value.
