Each of these challenges is designed to unlock the power of your imagination, leaving it up to the player to figure out a unique build that will work, created via a brick-by-brick building mechanic that replicates the real experience of building with LEGO bricks.
Whether you’re being asked to put on your designer hat and build a throne fit for a king or testing your engineering skills to build a bridge that will get heavy machinery across a river, how you construct your builds and meet the challenges you’re being offered is up to you!

I’ll have to admit, I am curious to see how the building mechanic shapes up here: as you progress through the game, you gain access to more elements to complete the building challenges, improving the parts palette available for your brick-built solutions. To get through the game play, you can build a quick and robust solution, but once a level is completed, you gain additional elements in your sandbox to enhance and expand your build.

Will this building mechanic inspire LEGO builders who are not yet in the habit of building digitally? Or will they prefer to hone their skills in Stud.io? Why not leave you thoughts below, and until next time,
