Yet another LEGO app for the iPhone/iPad...
How quickly can you guess what’s being built from LEGO bricks?
Creationary is the award-winning build-and-guess LEGO game that challenges the imagination, creativity, building and guessing skills of you, your family and friends with more than 300 bricks and accessories. With LEGO Creationary, you can guess what’s being built on iPad, iPhone & iTouch in this true-to-the-original-board-game app!
“Roll” the LEGO dice to find out which of the 4 randomly selected categories you’re guessing: nature, vehicles, buildings or things. The game starts building an object from that category out of LEGO bricks, and you have to guess which of the four possible answers is correct by tapping the illustration that you think matches what is being built. The faster you guess correctly, the more points you earn. The more you play, the more difficult the game becomes. Guess incorrectly and the game ends.
You can read more and see screenshots at iTunes.
I have my daughter who's at Uni to thank for the news: she found it in the AppStore and txt'd her sister who told me :-)
I'm off to download and play it now, I'll let you know what it's like later!
Later... Well I have to say, it's fun for 5 minutes but there's not much to it! Basically you have to guess what's being built on the screen before it's completed. There's no actual building or anything else remotely interesting involved. It's not much more than an advert for LEGO games. I guess the best thing about it is that it demonstrates that LEGO is investing in developing games for mobile platforms so we can but hope that if this one is deemed a success that better games will follow.
Android users (of which I am one) we need not fret, it's not worth changing allegiance for. Besides, we have Angry Birds now...
