When you know what you’re doing, LEGO elements create some very interesting patterns and shapes. Builder Azurekingfisher knows what they’re doing. In mobile sculpture, rings and snowflake-like shapes are created from a complex repetition of plant leaves in a variety of hues. Add Technic rods and connectors to hang them from, and you have an art installation just waiting to happen.
LEGO and Gameloft have unveiled a new mobile game, “LEGO Legacy: Heroes Unboxed” which promises to bring together minifigures from the past 40 years of LEGO sets into a team-Battle RPG. The game will challenge players to collect classic and modern LEGO minifigures and sets in digital form, then create a team and engage in battles and adventures. The development team even visited the LEGO Vault in Billund, Denmark to research classic sets, minifigures and instructions to help them faithfully recreate them within the game.
“LEGO Legacy: Heroes Unboxed” will be available this fall on Apple and Android devices, though Brickworld Chicago attendees will get an early preview next month. We’ve included the launch trailer and press release after the jump.
After the Creator Islands mobile game released back in Fall 2014, here comes a new themed app — the Creator App. This time it’s not just a game, but a number of digital activities for kids. The app features a monthly building contest (the current one is about racing accesories), a number of videos with building secrets and ideas, and a stop-motion studio, which allows the creation of simple videos up to 75 frames (~20 seconds) in length. Assuming the interface is extremely simple and freindly, the app might become the first stop-motion animation experience for many children.
The LEGO Creator App is availiable for both iOS and Android.
