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.
