Top tips, hints, and cheats you need to know

spaceLego

In The Lego Movie Video Game, you star as Emmet, an ordinary guy who desperately wants to fit in and have some friends. However, after stumbling upon the Piece of Resistance, Emmet’s life gets a lot more interesting. Throughout the game you’ll also play as Wild Style and many other characters from the movie as you work your way through over 40 levels. Along the way you’ll have to be creative and watch for clues in order to unlock the next stage. So here are our top tips, hints, and cheats to help.

Blocked Areas and Impossible Tasks

GUM The Lego Movie

As you begin to play through the story mode you are going to find that there are areas in the game you cannot get to no matter how hard you try or creative you get. You will find that there are objects you cannot open, interact with, or destroy no matter what you do. This is normal.

The reason for it is because the game was created that way. In simple terms you are NOT meant to have full access during the story mode. There is a certain logic to this – after all if you did well then the game play would be a lot shorter. But more than that, it is the reason that matters, and that reason is simply that you do not have the characters (often character type) and thus abilities that are required to access the other parts of the zone or items.

Those Little LEGO Studs are Meant to be Collected

GUM The Lego Movie

You will notice that scattered around the world there are different colored LEGO studs — Silver, Gold, Purple, and some of special colors that do specific things. These studs are the money of the LEGO world and they are meant to be collected by you – so be sure you do!

Perhaps the most important reason for collecting them is the fact that you need to collect a targeted number per zone as you play in order to unlock the Golden Brick that is associated with that task, but even more important is that later you will need to use your banked studs to purchase new objects, characters, and the like. So collect them studs!

The Games Use Checkpoint Saving

GUM The Lego Movie

You do NOT actually actively need to (nor can you) save your game — it does this automagically for you at key points. When you stop playing for the session and return later you will resume that game wherever the last save point was, so no worries there.

If you stopped playing in the midst of a chapter when you return the game will lay a trail of Green Studs for you to follow that will lead you back on the story track — simply follow them to resume the adventure.

Creating Custom Characters

GUM The Lego Movie

This is a mainstay feature for every game in the series that at some point in game play you will reach a place (usually via the Freeplay Mode) where you can create your own custom characters. This was an especially fun aspect of the Star Wars and Harry Potter games in the series, but all feature it.

In the case of LEGO Movie the location for creating custom characters is found in the Cloud Cuckoo Land hub, in the puppy-faced building off of the plaza. So once you reach that point in play you will be able to make use of that feature!

Unlocking Characters

GUM The Lego Movie

Finally the last important point you need to know before you play is that the different characters can be the key to success for specific zones and tasks. Because of that you want to make the effort to unlock as many characters as you possible can.

There are over 90 regular characters plus others that are added via DLC — but you do not need the DLC characters to complete the main game. Just saying. Get busy, unlock characters, have fun!

Use Your Abilities

There are some situations where certain characters are better suited than others. For example, Wild Style has special moves that make her better at combat than Emmet. Whenever a bunch of enemies are descending upon you at once, try switching to Wild Style instead and letting her take care of the situation.

Don’t Buy To Beat

That being said, you don’t actually have to spend any real money in order to beat The Lego Movie Video Game. Instead, just work your way through the story lines and you’ll unlock new characters and end up unlocking achievements faster than you’d think. Game play itself isn’t actually hard or difficult, so sit back and enjoy the story line and complete as many mini-games as you can!

Packages Deals Are Better

If you insist on buying your favorite characters by purchasing yellow bricks, be sure to check out the bundles that are offered. They are almost always a better deal than buying individual characters.

Change Controller Types

When you pause the game, you can switch to a classic controller type if you choose. Anyone who is used to a D-pad or just prefers physical controls can give this a try. You can even hook up an accessory controller if you have one.
