However, it doesn’t take long to discover that in order to progress very far in the game, you do need to upgrade your battle gear. The only way to do that introduces the scavenger portion of the game. You must find the items you need to continue on your quest by scanning the barcode of the Lego Ninjago merchandise that includes the items you seek to improve your luck in the battle arena. For example, the game may suggest you need a black sword to better your chances. In order to add a black sword, you must find a Lego Ninjago box set that contains such a sword and then scan the barcode. The game even tells you the Lego Set # to look for at the store.
Lego Ninjago-Spinjitzu Scavenger Hunt—–An exciting new app for the iPhone or iPad
Although you don’t have to necessarily buy the Lego set in order to get the barcode, that would be the safest and easiest thing to do. Certainly that is the intention of the marketing team at Lego who released this app. I noticed that many of the barcodes are available on various Lego Ninjago internet forums, and the barcode numbers can be entered manually using your keyboard.
Overall, this was a simple, fun app that promotes the Lego Ninjago product line, which includes not only Ninjago building sets, but Battle Cards and Spinners which allow you to do battle for real in your own home arena.– Lance Manion
