LEGO Creator provides users with an unlimited supply of LEGO bricks with which to build with. Although there is an unlimited number of bricks, they are all of the town theme. The game does not have an objective to complete, users simply play with LEGO bricks while building their own town.
Building is done using a point-and-click interface. The mouse is used to pick up a brick and drag it around while you search for a spot to place it. Once a brick is selected it can be rotated, placed anywhere a compatible connection is located, and changed to a different color. Pre-built models are included as well so that every item does not need to be built from scratch.
Along with constructing a town, people and vehicles can also be created. Minifigures are put together in LEGO Creator the same way as the actual toys. Users select the minifigure's headgear, face, body, backpack, legs, and tools. When placing a minifigure into the town you will have to choose if that minifigure should be standing, sitting, or walking. Sounds can be added to the minifigures too. Choose a sound they should make when close to another minifigure, when they bump into something, and the sound they randomly make. Players can even add their own sounds if they would like to.
Vehicles become movable when a minifigure is added to them (pre-built vehicles automatically have a driver / pilot). When placed into the town a vehicle will need to be given a path so that it knows where to go. All paths will eventually reconnect with themselves so that the vehicle will move in a continuous loop. Aircraft paths are set in the same way but they must be given a high enough altitude so that they do not crash.
At any time users can put themselves into their town and take a look around. A town can be explored a number of different ways. One is simply to use the camera to zoom in and out. Another way is to take a third-person or first-person view from one of the vehicles or minifigures as they move around. The last way is to actually take control of a vehicle or minifigure and explore on your own.
One final feature included in LEGO Creator are Destructa Bricks. These special bricks are used to blow things up. Destructa Bricks can be detonated at any time by the user or they can be placed on either a set timer or random timer. ~ Jonathan Sutyak, All Game Guide
