Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga
Star Wars was one of the first Lego games ever made and is one of the most well known. I personally have completed it 100% a number of times. We chose this game as our main inspiration as it has so many different aspects that are still applied to the Lego games today.
First, we used the idea of a small character (young Anakin or the Ewoks in Star Wars) and applied that to our level. We made Pepe the Prawn a small character who can crawl into small spaces to travel around the level.
Second, we used the wall puzzle idea from the Kamino. The puzzle must be built and can then be switched between Jango Fett and Boba Fett’s helmets. We used a wall puzzle idea similar to this but made it slightly more complicated. The second puzzle in the level is a picture of Lego Kermit the Frog. This is split into circles that form layers. The image is jumbled up and the player must rotate all of the circles to form Kermit’s face.
We also used the idea of pushing boxes along a track. In the Mos Eisley mission where Luke, Ben, C3PO and R2D2 are trying to find a pilot, there is a section where the player must push a box along a track and off a ledge onto another track. We have used this idea and adapted it slightly so that when the box is pushed off the ledge, it is destroyed and its pieces can be used to build a new item.
