What's New in Version 1.51
Bug fixes and optimizations for iOS8.
Think it's just a wallpaper...
EDIT: After a new phone, a year later, i have been able to finally play the game i bought! Yes, it opened, and yes, i played it! By that i mean ALL of it, because it has only a few levels. So i played through it on the other side. Finished it, as well. By now my coffee was brewed, and i sat wondering when the devs would update with more content. Yes, i know what you're thinking - Star Wars and Lego are hurting for funds and resources, of course, but a couple more levels after a year or so should be attainable, even for these tiny, fledgling institutions. It was fun while it lasted, but be aware that it doesn't last very long...
Because for 2 months now, after many re-installs and reboots, all the program does is show the splash screen then closes. I've yet to play ANY of it. Yes, it must just be a wallpaper instead of a game. Perhaps "optimized for iPhone 5" should really say "doesn't work with anything else". I'd suggest saving your money until the game is finished.
This game is very short and way too easy. The upgrades need to be changed so they are made permanent and not just on a per level basis. It's stupid to have to buy them with in game currency every time you want to use them. No IAPs, which is always great. Overall a great game and a steal at $0.99, but it needs a lot more levels and vehicles. A story wouldn't hurt either since the cutscenes are just filler junk that serve no purpose whatsoever. They're not even funny like the TT Lego games.
A long way to go...
Great graphics. That's about it. Huge potential but virtually impossible even on the first level. Running on a 4s and the app has crashed on start-up at least half the time. Very retro...if you like loading screens. I like that the user can choose and play both sides. Like that it's true to Lego games like gathering coins, etc. but if you buy extras and the app crashes you lose your coins, bricks, etc. w/o actually using them. Harsh. A show stopper bug in my book.
Update: now playing on a 6. Same review except for no crashes. Too hard, leaving no room to enjoy the game, theming, etc. No fun.
