Well known children’s toy company LEGO is bringing its toys into the digital age with the upcoming release of “Life of George”. The game consists of three main parts, a pile of LEGO blocks, a play mat and most importantly an iPhone app.

The idea of the game is to build the models shown on the iPhone with the actual Lego blocks. When a player thinks they have completed the model they need to take a picture with the iPhone or iPod touch. The app will then calculate a score based on the speed and accuracy of the finished model.

The game has twelve levels all based around a character called George, a software engineer. Each of the twelve levels has ten models to build; so plenty to keep your little ones entertained. There is also a “My Life” mode which allows players to create their own designs.

The game will be available in October, exclusively in the U.S for around $23.
