Lego Hidden Side Review
Posted: 8 weeks ago.
There are a wide range of sets for different prices, as well as individual figures to collect. Each one opens and unlocks new content on the Lego Hidden Side app. This offers not only an initial novelty but new content, challenges and adventures through the year.
You interact with the sets by moving and manipulating colour-coded sections of the models. As you do you rouse angry poltergeists or get the unwanted attention of large monsters hiding inside each set. If you manage to solve these mysteries and defeat enemies, you unlock news challenges.
The kits themselves are well design Lego creations that reminded us of Stranger Things, with a combination of hipster and light horror. The addition of the smartphone play does mean that even the smaller kits that are built quite quickly still have considerable interaction value, beyond the usual imaginative play.
Players: You can play with 4 players in the same room, but you can’t play it online. Multiplayer mode was added in an update and has one player as the ghost hunter while up to three friends play as ghosts. The ghost players can move their characters around hiding in different locations that the ghost hunter can see on their screen.
