If you have an Android phone or tablet, the LEGO Hero Factory: Brain Attack game by Amuzo Games is now available for free on Google Play. The game is your standard wave, top-down, shoot-em up game with Hero Factory characters so if you’re into those types of games, this would be a good one for you to try. Like many other games, you can customize and upgrade your armor and weapons as the game progresses. You also get to have a sidekick to help you through the levels or team up with your friends for an all-out assault. I’ve downloaded it a few hours ago and played through the first two levels and it’s a pretty good game. The graphics are very nice but it does load a little slow. Again, the game is free and the developers are actively updating the game in 2013 with a major update at the end of January. Give it a try and let us know what you think of LEGO Hero Factory: Brain Attack. If you have an iOS device, you can download it from iTunes here.
