Lego has launched its very first iOS game, Lego Creationary. It’s a universally compatible digital take on the company’s Pictionary-like board game that will have you racking your brain to try and figure out what is being built out of Lego bricks before time expires.
Before each round you are required to roll a single die to find out which of the four categories you will be playing: nature, vehicles, building, or things. There are two additional sides to the die, random and double-score random, which can add to the fun.
As the bricks are being assembled before your eyes, your possible score for the round is slowly being diminished, so the quicker you guess, the more points you will receive. If you don’t tap one of the four answers located in each corner of the screen before time expires, the game is over. If you tap the wrong answer, the game is over as well. The first few rounds can be ridiculously easy, but as you progress things will become difficult.
The game lacks any real form of multiplayer or online connectivity, but it does feature the ability to share scores via Facebook or email.
Lego Creationary is available free of charge without any obtrusive ads. It may not be the most feature-rich board game you will have ever played, but hey, it’s Lego-related and it’s free, so we’re not complaining.
If you decide to give it a try on your iPad, we recommend giving your device a reboot to avoid any stuttering.
