LEGO video games have provided countless hours of light-hearted gameplay, yet we're seeing more releases come to light with different themes and genres. Now Lego Hero Factory - Brain Attack is available on both Windows 8 and Windows Phone (as well as other competitor platforms). The Windows Phone version has been on the store for a while, but it's good to see the desktop also being supported.
So what's the background behind the LEGO Hero Factory game? You (children, folks) are tasked with defending Makuhero City from the waves of brains attacking the Hero Factory. With the ability to customise your hero with numerous weapons and armour, as well as earn points to upgrade firepower and defences, the game takes on an interesting twist of action and strategy.
The latest, all-action game features attractive 3D graphics. Tackling the evil brains, you're taken into the realm with immersive music and visual effects. Developed by Amuzo Games (www.amuzo.com/games), both the Windows 8 and Windows Phone versions of Brain Attack sport the usual humour and features we've come to know and enjoy from both the developer and other LEGO titles available on multiple platforms.
The title isn't Xbox Live enabled, but there are an array of achievements to unlock as you progress through each level. Statistics are also displayed, which includes the number of medals collected, enemies defeated and more. Accompanying you on your journey is your trusty sidekick (you can choose from a selection), and when launching into a level you're greeted with a bird's eye view of the battlefield.
Controls are fairly simple and straight forward and the environment does indeed draw the player into the action. As this title is aimed at a younger audience, don't expect in-depth and challenging gameplay. Instead, think of this game as a real time killer.
Makuhero City requires a defender, will you answer the call?
You can download LEGO Hero Factory - Brain Attack from the Windows Phone ($0.99 - 111MB / Windows Phone 8 only) and Windows (free) Stores. QR code for the former can be found below.
