    Despite its free-form approach to puzzle solving, the game offers very little incentive to replay it, so it’s not really a game you’ll keep installed on your phone for long. It is, however, a game that’s well worth the time it takes to play. If you’re already a subscriber to Apple Arcade, LEGO Builder’s Journey is a must-download, if only just to see how much a game can accomplish in a story while taking such a minimalist approach.

    Lego Builder's Journey is a brilliant mixture of feelings and ideas, constructing a very different Lego video game. There's something from Monument Valley, in its quiet and somehow eerie atmosphere, but at its core, the construction mechanic is a true Lego experience.

    Supported by an enchanting artistic direction and a tantalizing and very precise gameplay, Builder's Journey has only one major flaw: an almost never difficult difficulty that allows the completion of the 34 levels in a matter of hours.

    Lego Builder’s Journey doesn’t give you the total freedom to build what you want, but it taps into strong feelings – problem solving and the satisfaction that comes with it. The game is a good start to what I hope is an evolving franchise.

    An astonishingly polished debut from Lego's new studio, and further proof that there's much, much more still to be made from the humble brick. [Issue#342, p.118]
