Here's a press release about a new game for iOS and Android:
The most awesome LEGO idle simulation mobile game LEGO Tower is on its way!
LEGO has joined forces with NimbleBit, creators of the classic mobile game Tiny Tower to craft a brand new mobile experience. NimbleBit has a long track record of building lovable mobile worlds for their players, and both companies are excited to be taking the Tiny Tower formula to new heights inside the world of LEGO.
“Having the opportunity to build upon one of our signature games inside the world LEGO is a dream come true for us.” says David Marsh, co-founder of NimbleBit. “The building blocks of LEGO are a complete creative match for our style of games. It’s sparked a lot of the feelings of creativity and joy we’ve experienced ourselves while playing with LEGO since we were young.”
LEGO Tower gives players the ability to build and operate their own LEGO Tower. Construct a wide range of apartments and businesses for your Minifigure residents to live, work and play in. Visit your friends’ towers and trade items to help them build. Collect hundreds of unique Minifigure pieces and discover hidden characters. Build your dream LEGO Tower to new heights, the sky's the limit!
Speaking of building, visit LEGO Ideas on the March 26th to participate in the LEGO Tower building challenge. Among the other prizes, winners will get their creation featured in the game!
It will be available 'Summer 2019'. We do not have any information on or pricing, but it's likely to have in-app purchases like the original version.
I am not familiar with the original game to know if this is a big deal or not. If you are, let us know what you think of this announcement in the comments.
