Way back in 2011 Tiny Tower was all the rage on the Apple and Android phones of the day. Now, nearly eight years later, LEGO and NimbleBit are announcing a spinoff to that title in the form of LEGO Tower, allowing players to build a giant, self-contained LEGO environment and fill it with minifigures. To see the announcement trailer, screenshots, and more details for what may or may not be a huge hit this summer, read on!
LEGO Tower - mobile game
The most awesome LEGO idle simulation mobile game LEGO Tower is on its way!
LEGO has joined forces with NimbleBit, creators of the classic mobile game Tiny Tower to craft a brand new mobile experience. NimbleBit has a long track record of building lovable mobile worlds for their players, and both companies are excited to be taking the Tiny Tower formula to new heights inside the world of LEGO.
"Having the opportunity to build upon one of our signature games inside the world LEGO is a dream come true for us." says David Marsh, co-founder of NimbleBit. "The building blocks of LEGO are a complete creative match for our style of games. It's sparked a lot of the feelings of creativity and joy we've experienced ourselves while playing with LEGO since we were young."
LEGO Tower gives players the ability to build and operate their own LEGO Tower. Construct a wide range of apartments and businesses for your Minifigure residents to live, work and play in. Visit your friends' towers and trade items to help them build. Collect hundreds of unique Minifigure pieces and discover hidden characters. Build your dream LEGO Tower to new heights, the sky's the limit!
Speaking of building, visit LEGO Ideas on the March 26th to participate in the LEGO Tower building challenge. Among the other prizes, winners will get their creation featured in the game!
Available directly from App Store & Google Play from Summer 2019
I might be a little confused as to why this game is coming out in 2019, which seems about six years too late, but honestly I'm pretty excited. I played Tiny Death Star until it was shut down and look forward to the planning and spreadsheets I'll inevitable create to help track all of my rooms and minifigs. How about you - will you be playing this game later in the year when it releases? Let us know in the Talkback!
