In Lego Hero Factory, brain sucking creatures have taken over several places, and it's your job to eliminate them with Lego style created robots. You have five areas to play: city streets, shopping mall, stadium, spaceport, and scrapyard. You have seven robots to choose from: Proto-type B-16, Furno, Breez, Bulk, Rocka, Maku Sentry, and Captain Max Shoota. You also have four sidekicks to choose from: Rocka, Bulk, Breez, and Furno. When you start the game, only the Proto-type B-16 robot is available; the rest have to be unlocked with points you obtain from playing through the levels. All the sidekicks are available at the beginning of the game. Every level offers his own variety of game play; for instance, in the shopping mall levels, enemies can hit you from the top floor when you are on the bottom floor. In the scrapyard levels, you have to be careful of the crusher and the floor that opens up and reveals a fiery pit. In the stadium levels, there are electricity lines at both ends of the ice rink, and if you get too close to them, you die and fail the level. There are alot of armor and weapon upgrades that can be purchased with points, and they each help you differently in the levels. You could also find alot of powerups in each level, like speed bursts, sentry guns, and other great powerups. The level of difficulty is good too; each level does get progressively harder. This game is very fun and addicting to play, and the robots look really good on the screen. I like the Maku Sentry the best; he causes lots of damage and uses the weapons really good.
