Looking for something to do over the weekend? Well, if you’ve been living under a rock, or, if you’re like me, have a computer barely capable of playing Youtube videos without skipping or decides to go into sleep mode randomly on its own, you may be interested in a browser-based LEGO Star Wars web game, The Quest For R2-D2. I myself have yet to play it but by all accounts, it’s a hit. Gameplay is very similar to the LEGO Star Wars games on the consoles and PC, so it will feel familiar all over again.
As a bonus, once you play through the game, you’ll be able to unlock instructions for the Malevolence. However, if you need a set listing that comprises the model you can take a look at this forum thread: Malevolence Model – What Kits Are Needed?.
The game requires the Unity plugin to play. So after a short download and install, you’ll be hacking and slashing your way through the game in no time. It’s pretty amazing what the plugin is able to deliver considering you’re playing the game on a web browser. The last time I was this impressed with a web game was for Quake Live. For more information on the game’s development, you may be interseted in reading this article on Unity.
