The videogame about the movie that is based on toys, yes that’s the simplest way to put it. Everyone knows and love Lego from their childhood. Many of us probably spent hours stacking the multicoloured blocks as high as they could go before they ran out of pieces and smashed it down like Godzilla. Well Lego has come alongway from being a simple toy chain and is now a massive brand with videogame, televison specials and movie adaptations; the latest being The Lego Movie.
For those unaware, here is the official description of the game based off the simply titled film.
