LEGO's Build With Chrome


Mon, Feb 3rd, 2014 11:00 by capnasty NEWS

As a partnership between Google and Chrome, the Build With Chrome website is basically an excuse to promote the latest LEGO movie. And you know what? I'm okay with it, because if you're looking to have some fun building without cleaning up after, this is the perfect way to start your Monday morning.

You can jump right in, or take some lessons first. The Build Academy sets you against a series of challenges to train you to be a master builder. You're guided along by a virtual hippy-wizard Lego minifig, a character that ties in marketing-wise with the upcoming Lego movie. It starts off basic with learning how to rotate your baseplate and gets increasingly more complex as you hone your skills.

I'll admit I started cursing at the hippy-wizard partway through the second challenge when I was having trouble figuring out exactly which bricks he wanted where. It sounded almost the same as when I step on a loose Lego on the floor. It really can be a bit challenging to place the digital bricks in just the right place.
