The idea was to release 4 casual mobile games before the launch of the LEGO MOVIE. The games were to be embedded into the McDonald’s Happy Meal app.
The LEGO Movie ™ Wyldstyle is an endless runner game. It is cross-platform and runs on iOS and Android devices. It is styled as a racing game. The player controls a motorcycle that accelerates forward.
The player is supposed to be collecting fuel along the way to extend the game time and bonuses that bring him points. The player runs into obstacles and after colliding the motorcycle slows down, which makes it harder to reach the goal.
There are 3 lanes in the game.
It took a total of 45 days to develop.
Over this time we • Connected particles. • Made the game cross-platform. • Rendered bright and colorful animation. • Adapted it to be embedded into other software. • Introduced right and left slice control to be able to switch between lanes. • Introduced vertical jumps for overcoming obstacles or collecting bonuses in the air. • Implemented a puzzle featuring a motorcycle, which the player puts together before starting the race. • Developed bonuses: on the ground (McDonald’s logo, hamburger), in the air (French fries, a glass of cola, Happy Meal box), and fuel.
• Bonuses on the ground. They appear every 30 seconds, each bonus carries from 5 to 25 points. • Bonuses in the air. They appear 10 seconds after the start. • Fuel. It adds from 2 to 7 seconds to the total game time.
Obstacles can be jumped over or bypassed in another lane.
The player assembles the «motorcycle» puzzle before the game.
• The game was adapted to be embedded into other software. • The game was successfully developed before the release of the LEGO MOVIE™.
