Today, the LEGO Lord of the Rings video game has been released on Apple iOS. The game is similar to the console version with the trilogy storyline and you can download the game right now on iTunes for $4.99. If you don’t feel like paying $20 for the console version, why not pay $5 and take it along with you on your mobile devices. The game requires 1.37 GB and iOS 6.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.
Follow the epic storylines of the original The Lord of the Rings trilogy reimagined with the humor and endless variety of LEGO gameplay. Relive the legend of The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, and The Return of the King through LEGO minifigures, as they explore wonders and solve timeless riddles. Orcs and fouler things await on this perilous path to Mount Doom but a Fellowship will be formed — Aragorn the Ranger, Gandalf the Wizard, Legolas the Elf, Gimli the Dwarf, Boromir Man of Gondor, and Frodo’s Hobbit friends Sam, Merry and Pippin all join in to help along the quest to destroy the Ring and return peace to the land.
This game includes many hours of content and cinematics that take up a lot of space! You will need 3 GB of available space on your device if you install over wifi, but only 1.5 GB of space if you download on your computer and then sync.
As with many large app installations, we advise that you restart your device after installing as this will resolve some stability issues. Also make sure you have installed the most recent firmware.
