Life in Lego Tower is pretty peculiar.
Take Trevor, for example: this tiny yellow man lives in an odd, houseboat-style apartment on the fourteenth floor with four equally peculiar roommates.
Daisy wears a ninja outfit all day. Dylan, meanwhile, is a straight-up zombie. Trevor also works in the local garage, which for some reason is based on the twentieth floor of the high-rise he lives in.
Actually, we know the reason: we put it there. In Lego Tower, you’re the chief architect of your own skyscraper. As such, you are charged with building both residential and commercial floors.
You make sure all the inhabitants have jobs and even do some chores yourself, such as helping a food delivery person find a stack of incorrectly delivered pizzas, or locating a stray shark on the tenth floor.
The real fun starts once you start collecting minifig pieces to customise your tower dwellers. With the right bits (which you can also trade with friends who are also playing Lego Tower), you can dress them up as gorillas, ninjas, magicians and, yes, zombies. (Tip: don’t put a zombie to work in the sushi bar, as that would be unsanitary, to say the least.)
If you’re ever curious what goes on in the heads of your yellow friends, simply open BrickBook, the in-game social media app where they post their hot takes on all the goings ons. (We just checked and Trevor seems to have lost his phone. Hopefully he has Find My Brick enabled.) Living in Lego Tower might be peculiar, but it’s also chock-a-block with fun – a blockbuster in every sense of the word.
