The Lego Movie Video Game, as the game is simply called, is the long-awaited iOS edition of The Lego Movie Videogame, which was released by Warner Bros. on PC and console alongside the film in February and on Mac in October last year.
The game follows the plot of the animated film, which is centered on the “from zero to hero” adventures of a builder named Emmet:
Step into the world of Emmet, an ordinary, rules-following, perfectly average citizen who is mistakenly identified as the most extraordinary person and the key to saving the world. Players guide him as he is drafted into a fellowship of strangers on an epic quest to stop an evil tyrant, a journey for which Emmet is hopelessly and hilariously underprepared.
The Lego Movie Video Game lets you play through 45 levels with more than 90 characters (including Batman, Superman, Gandalf, and Benny) across different locations (including Flatbush Gulch and Cloud Cuckoo Land), all from the so-called brick flick.
It challenges you to come up with new creations made of Lego bricks and collect Lego instruction pages for building new Master Builder masterpieces.
The Lego Movie Video Game also notably features the same impressive visual style of the film, which replicates the look and feel of stop-motion even as it’s computer-animated.
Note that on account of its huge amount of graphics and other content, the game requires as much as 2.2GB of available space to be downloaded to your iOS device.
