LEGO Bricktales is now available on select platforms, and we’ve got a few tips to help you on your quest to build the best models possible.
Thunderful Games LEGO Bricktales is finally available on PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S, PlayStation 4 and 5 as well as Nintendo Switch for £24.99 / $24.99 / €24.99. It’s similar to LEGO Builder’s Journey in that you’ll have plenty of models to make from scratch, but a few differences between them may make the new title daunting in some aspects.
To make sure you’re prepared for the game and its quest to rebuild a theme park in your image, here are four tips for playing through LEGO Bricktales.
4 – Feel free to undo
Building is all too important to LEGO Bricktales’ gameplay though later tasks can be challenging as physics become a more crucial element. It can be frustrating to see a creation not solve a puzzle again and again, but rather than dragging the bricks to the side to start over, use the undo button on the bottom left or press control and Z provided you’re on keyboard to quickly undo your last step.
3 – Save your currency for sandbox mode
You’ll see several shops throughout LEGO Bricktales operated by a friendly ghost though, by the time you find them, you may not have enough money for the themed brick packs, instead opting for new minifigure parts. However, you can revisit any completed model in the game to redesign it to resemble various themes. Keep that in mind before you spend your currency.
2 – Simulate as much as you can
A couple of the physics-based puzzles in LEGO Bricktales can be particularly frustrating, such as the owl perch that must be balanced when hanging to proceed. The above design worked well for us but feel free to pursue your own creation. We only recommend that you simulate as much as possible to find out exactly what bricks need to be amended.
1 – Take a breather and explore
There’s more spaces to explore in LEGO Bricktales than you might think but working out how to get where you want isn’t impossible. You just need to pause the game, there you’ll see the entirety of the level, which can be rotated and zoomed into to see the pathways. You can also see the finer details of these brick-built worlds at the same time.
