Lego Builder's Journey is the latest addition to Apple Arcade and a fantastic puzzler using LEGO bricks. The game is basically a bunch of mind bending puzzles that you have to solve by putting LEGO bricks in the right space. In the early stages you just have to put LEGO pieces in correct spots. In later stages you have to move LEGO people to certain locations.
I am getting ahead of myself. As I said above, you start by putting LEGO pieces in certain spots. There is a tutorial through the first few levels that teaches you how to play. You touch a brick to moves it, hold to set it down, and tap to rotate it. The controls are fairly simple, although I had some trouble getting the bricks to do what I wanted at times.
Here's is gameplay video through the tutorial and the first six levels until the opening title.
As the game progress you are introduced to two figures that appear to be hikers. Your goal is to get them to certain points in each puzzle by manipulating the bricks the correct way. There appears to be some sort of story, but it is not very obvious of what the narrative is. I'm not really sure it is even important, but there is a conclusion at the end.
The levels get progressively harder to figure out. The final level had me stumped for close to an hour total. I had to keep stepping away and taking a break. Eventually I figured it out and solved it. If you would like to view the gameplay/walkthrough video I made click here. I will not embed it into this video for the sake of spoilers and those who don't want to see it.
Overall this game is fantastic! It isn't perfect, but I could not put it down. The puzzles are all solvable without a walkthrough (even the last one if you put your mind to it). I highly recommend downloading this from Apple Arcade. This is the type of game that makes Apple Arcade worth the money.
