Taking on Lego, Skylanders and Disney Infinity, Sick Bricks is the latest toy-powered videogame, which – while sticking to the brawling, puzzles and fetch quests of the popular Lego titles – also introduces irreverent characters and peculiar vehicles by scanning the physical bricks through the camera. The app is free to play with a basic set of heroes, but retail packs then add single or multiple characters, such as phaser-touting Tiberius Warpspeed or Hiro Thunderbutt, who comes wielding (inevitably with that name) a fart attack.
Sick Bricks marks the launch of a new franchise in very fast, comprehensive order. Not only is this iOS and Android game out, but so is the cartoon and the line of toys that go with it. Sick Bricks, despite being a Lego Movie ripoff, is a high-quality, very good looking game that is much more console-like than most free-to-play mobile games.
FamilyGamerTV: "Sick Bricks is a new iOS game from Spin Master that takes more than a leaf out of the Lego and Skylanders video-game playbook. In many ways Sick Bricks does what I had expected Lego to do a long time ago — integrate their brick toys closely with a video-game in the “toys to life” genre as Activision call it."
