Legoland is a Legoland-themed simulation strategy computer game that simulates theme park management. It shares many aspects with the Rollercoaster Tycoon tycoon series (a similar series of games with an identical premise) but with a more simplistic and child-friendly gameplay style.
Gameplay[edit | edit source]
Introduction[edit | edit source]
The opening scene begins with a message on the player's answering machine telling him that he has been chosen to be the "Trainee Park Manager". The scene transfers to the Legoland Park, where Jonathan Ablebody, a member of staff at the Park, is sitting in the control room, announcing that Professor Voltage has built a new invention, simultaneously introducing the main characters. After the player arrives at the Park, he is shown through to a hall, crowded with staff and visitors. A stage curtain is pulled back, and Professor Voltage introduces his new time machine. This gets stuck halfway through the trap door in the stage, and after the Professor gives it a good kick, it comes through. Jonathan remarks that the machine will never work, so the Professor challenges him. After replacing a freshly blown bulb with a new one, he fires the time machine up, smoke billows from the building, the machine disappears, and we are shown that Bob Longtree, the gardener, and JP, the mechanic, are covered in soot. The time machine reappears and stops spinning abruptly. The whole park collapses under the enormous strain by the time machine. The Professor trips over in surprise and is hit on the head by his Duplicator Ray. After this, he comes to a conclusion that the park can be fixed using his raygun and his time machine. Jonathan then hopes that it will work out and welcomes us once again into Legoland.
Menu[edit | edit source]
After selecting the player profile, the player can select either Story Mode, Free Play Mode, Movie Mode, Options, Profiles, Saved Games or Quit.
Story Mode[edit | edit source]
In Story Mode the player must complete five tutorial levels to learn how to play, then must complete ten Miniland levels to rebuild the Park. When the game is completed, the player is rewarded with a certificate that they can print out.
Free Play Mode[edit | edit source]
In Free Play Mode, the player can simply create their own Legoland park without any objectives or limitations, but can only use sets he or she has unlocked up to that point. Therefore, completing the game gives the player access to all unlockables in Free Play Mode.
