App description

LEGO Juniors allows players to construct their chosen vehicle and character to drive through a short driving course. Players are first to construct their character by choosing from body parts; hair, head, body and legs. You are then taken to a garage where players must choose a vehicle body (either a car chassis or helicopter body). From there, players are guided to complete the construction of the vehicle by swiping parts onto it. Your chosen character then gets into the vehicle to commence the journey. Direction of the vehicle is automatic, players only need to press and hold the drive button in the lower right-hand corner. Gold coins are collected through the course and automatically unlock further features such as; new character body parts, vehicles and interactive landmarks.

Reviewers comments

At the time of review, there were no concerns with this app. There are no ads, in-app purchasing, social media connectivity or concerning game playing behaviour. The game is very intuitive and easy to navigate. Having a limited number of base configurations to build from may (to some extent) affect creativity. However, the point is to build a driveable vehicle, and there are a several different combinations to experiment with when choosing character body parts. If children are enthusiastic about Lego in general, and there’s some available, it would be good for learning to encourage building their own creations rather than always replying on being led to construct set designs.

About games and gambling

Most games contain elements of risk, chance and knowledge, that is why they are fun to play. There is growing concern about the impacts of simulated gambling games on the health and wellbeing of children. That's why we are identifying games that contain gambling elements on our site.

The State Government of South Australia's web site http://nogame.com.au/ contains information about these concerns.
