Everything has not been awesome for The Lego Movie as of late. The most critically acclaimed animation feature of 2014 was snubbed by the Academy Awards for best picture and left with a single nomination for its hit song, which had every child and parent singing along in theaters nationwide. The bad luck seems to have run out, however, as fans of the film can now play The Lego Movie Videogame on iOS devices.
The Lego series has released an impressive list of titles on various consoles over the years, but The Lego Move Videogame is the first to be based on the original film. How awesome is the title alone? It is a toy inside a movie inside a videogame. Now if only we could get a television adaptation of the videogame. Did somebody say The Lego Movie Videogame TV Show? This could go on all day.
The game itself debuted last year alongside the release of the movie on every imaginable console with the exception of iOS devices. The new download will allow users to purchase the game for a mere $4.99, a considerable drop from the price of the other console versions. The iOS version is a port of the other mobile releases of the game that can be found on the Playstation Vita and Nintendo 3DS systems. The game has been available since Jan. 22.
In the game, players are given the option to play as Emmet (the film’s main character) as well as a variety of other characters such as Batman and Princess Unikitty. Together, it is your mission to take down Lord Business and become a Master Builder. The game brings with it 90 characters from the movie as well as 45 various missions to complete.
The official trailer for the iOS launch can be seen below!
