Why do people collect hot bikes

Berlin (dpa / tmn) - If you can handle Lego bricks well in real life, you shouldn't have any problems with them on the console. "Lego Worlds" by Warner Brothers brings the blocks from Denmark onto the television screen. The game is designed as an action adventure in an open world.

As a player, you explore the world here, collect items and complete numerous tasks. The goal: to become a master builder. The individual tasks are varied and easy to cope with even by young players. For example, a caveman needs a new home. Another time you have to find a sword for a king. The game is approved for ages 6 and up and is available for Playstation 4 and Xbox One for around 30 euros each.

"Snipperclips" from Nintendo is an innovative puzzle game that will be released at the launch of the new Switch console. The two protagonists are called Snip and Clip. The sometimes really challenging puzzles can only be solved through cooperation between the two of them. In "Snipperclips", Nintendo positions the Switch as a gaming device that relies heavily on cooperation and communication between the players. The tasks are designed in such a way that snip and clip have to cut each other to meet certain requirements when assembled as a new figure.

The standard game variant is for two players. Each player uses one of the removable controllers. But a solo mode or multiplayer rounds with four participants are also possible. "Snipperclips" is a very successful puzzle game that is available for download exclusively for Nintendo Switch for around 20 euros. There is no age limit.

Otto is the name of the protagonist in the action adventure "Troll and I" by Maximum Games. Otto lives in a village in the far north. His peaceful life is disrupted by the attack of a horde of barbarians. In search of a feared creature, they maraud through the area regardless of loss. Otto flees and accidentally comes across the troll he is looking for. Both figures couldn't be more different - but together they are strong.

The plot promises suspense - and "Troll and I" can largely fulfill this promise. The game relies on a mixture of sneaking, fighting and tactics. Both main characters have to use their skills as best as possible. The troll is more responsible for the coarse deposits, while Otto is more responsible for the filigree actions. This becomes particularly clear in the two-player mode, in which the players have to manage the campaign on the split screen. "Troll and I" (from 16 years) will be available for around 50 euros on Playstation 4 and Xbox One. A switch version is to follow in the summer.

"Flatout 4: Total Insanity" is the name of an action-fun racer that already bears its motto in the title. It is really insane in this racing game. Insane racing action paired with a great destructiveness. Interacting with the virtual world means here: flattening whatever gets in your way. A total of ten game modes are available to lead-foot fans, as well as 27 vehicles. This includes buggies, monster trucks, but also such bizarre vehicles as moving ice cream stalls. Real fans of such games will especially enjoy arena competitions.

For racing game purists, "Flatout 4" is hardly anything, as the action factor clearly predominates. The scope of the game may be a little too small for a full-price game. But fans of this genre are sure to enjoy it. The game costs around 65 euros for Playstation 4 and Xbox One and is approved for ages 12 and up.

Androids against machines - a seemingly endless fight in a dystopian world: That sounds like an oppressive atmosphere with epic features. That's what "NieR: Automata" is all about. The successor to "NieR" from 2010 is based on a mixture of action and role-playing games.

The plot: Aliens attack the earth with powerful machines. The only thing left for the people is to retreat to the moon, from which the counter-attack is planned. The main characters are the androids 2B, 9S and A2, whose skills players can develop. The right mix of close-range and long-range attacks plays an important role in the combat system. Of course, there is a large arsenal of swords and other weapons, some of which are absurdly large. "NieR: Automata" is released from the age of 16 and costs around 65 euros.
