University Games to Make LEGO Games & Colorforms

University Games, an international toy and game company, has aligned with the LEGO Group to create LEGO branded games and Colorforms products.

Available now, LEGO BIONICLE: The Quest Game includes six exclusive Toa Inika game piece figures and a Protodermis ball launcher that players use to take on the evil Piraka. Each player needs to find the Mask of Life and save the BIONICLE universe.

The BIONICLE product line is supported through a series of comicbooks and on an online forum ( where fans can play games and read the latest in the BIONICLE story.

Other LEGO games also available now, such as LEGO Dominos, where players match and stack their dominos by matching the color of the LEGO bricks. In LEGO DUPLO Checkers, players add easy stacking action to the traditional gameplay.
