The gameplay of LEGO Universe is similar to its single-player predecessors, LEGO Star Wars, LEGO Indiana Jones and the like. There’s quite a bit of platform play involved and you smash things, pick up hearts (health), shields (armor) and coins. In LEGO Universe there’s also Imagination that needs to be collected as these power Quick Builds. As befits a kids’ game, controls are simple. WASD to move, mouse clicks for combat, intuitive icons to open up interfaces and a single key, the Shift key to interact with objects. Combat is manual and is simply spam clicking thanks to the auto-target feature, just like the single-player game. Get near enough to an enemy, and click repeatedly.
