The transition of LEGO from a conventional kids toy manufacturer, or do you prefer versatile interlocking brick system, into a top media and pop culture powerhouse is an impressive feat. One among the several LEGO games released on Android, LEGO Creator Islands, port of an existing browser game, was developed using the ubiquitous Unity engine. A hit with children between 6 to 9 years, your kid can play this game by logging in to their LEGO ID on your home Tablet. This may traditionally be a kids game, however it is not uncommon for young teenagers to get hooked on to it.
This Sim City style island management game lets you construct houses, vehicles, creatures, and independent islands close to your mainland. Be careful since while building and exploring neighbouring islands, your mainland may be facing some kind of adversity, which can be threatening to the Minifig (the little yellow guys with the round heads) inhabitants, and may require rebuilding. The objective is to make sure that your island is protected by ever expanding your realm.
What makes LEGO Creator Islands a Hit with Kids?

Complete with colourful graphics, cute characters and an absorbing game play this tablet app has more than 5 lakh downloads at the Play Store, accounting for its credibility.
Where the Android App Can Improve?
Despite offering additional features like rotate and zoom, touch screen controls, and using the assistance of the map to move between islands, there is no tutorial, no communication with the AI and lack of streamlined instructions. Moreover since the game requires a device with at least 7 inches of screen space Smartphones and Phablets are instantly ruled out. Moreover while playing on your Tablet, there may be times when the game may consume excess battery.
