 Official App Store Links: Apple iOS | Android

The LEGO® Movie Video Game presents in landscape mode to deliver a highly evolved fantasy combat game, pitting good Legos against evil Legos, which all begs the question: is there such a thing as evil Legos?! Oh Pshaw, bite your tongue! The plot of this app loosely follows that of the film, presenting clips from the movie that introduce the games you’re playing. Basically, all the mini games involve you building with Legos, (duh!) completing specific actions, and battling any meanies that might be lurking about. The play is a little confusing at first, but once you get past the learning curve, there’s a lot of fun to be had.

The controls use an array of actions to make the magic happen, swipes, pokes, slides, which all functioned as expected. The coolest part, was just whirring your finger in a circular motion, which inspired special Lego pieces to build themselves, right before your eyes.  The graphics are colorful and vibrant, looking very much like the actual movie itself. The animation features the same cutting edge, stop motion technology that brought the film to life. The sounds feature voices from the film, mixed in with original sounds for the app to deliver a dynamic sound-scape.

The LEGO® Movie Video Game has a lot to offer Lego and gaming fans. This one is sure to entertain and keep you coming back for more. There's a lot to play here, and this one will entertain, clear through to the end.  Well worth the purchase price and a must-have for any Lego fan.
