LEGO Island 2 The Brickster's Revenge
Lego Island 2 The Brickster's Revenge is an action-adventure computer game, it is the sequel to Lego Island, and was followed by Island Xtreme Stunts. It continues the adventures of pizza-delivering skateboarder Pepper Roni, who must once again save the Island and the entire Lego Universe from the Brickster.
Plot[edit | edit source]
Like Lego Island, there are 'missions' to do, but in this sequel, they must be completed in a linear fashion. The only playable character in this game is Pepper Roni, unlike the previous game, in which multiple characters were available.
After the events of the previous game and Brickster's recapture, Pepper Roni is promised a new house, on condition that he delivers pizzas around the island. Having delivered enough pizzas to earn his new house, Pepper is told to deliver a pizza to the jail. The Brickster uses his hot breath saved from previous pizza chillies to form a spicy pizza breath that melts the jail doors to escape, stealing a police helicopter and flying to the Information Center. He steals the Constructopedia, the book containing the blueprints for all buildings on the island, and then scatters its pages through space and time. All of the buildings on Lego Island are deconstructed. Having summoned the 'Brickster-Bots' of Ogel, the Brickster leaves for Ogel Island (an asteroid floating in space that is inhabitated by aliens and Brickster Bots where the Brickster then resides). Pepper then has to destroy the Brickster-Bots, using pizza, and begins to locate a few of the pages. With each page returned, a building is re-constructed.
After helping the Infomaniac on Brickster-Bots in the Information Centre, Pepper then ventures through a portal which takes him to Castle Island (it takes him back to medieval times), where the Brickster has deconstructed the bridge; while diving to connect its two halves, he finds the missing brick pieces and is given page by the citizens which the Brickster dropped. He then engages in a joust to get the Bulls' flag back which was to get a page up the Bulls' castle flag hoist, in which is used as a substitute flag. Before getting the page, he has to engage in a cannon battle against one of the Bulls; Cedric the Bull.
Pepper returns home, collects more pages, then after deputised to be authorised in using the police chopper, flies through another portal to Adventure Island, where he meets Johnny Thunder and his colleagues, Miss Pippin Read and Dr. Kilroy (Johnny Thunder is a Indiana Jones like reference character). With them he defends gems from snakes, recover a page from the Mummies' tomb before being chased by a giant boulder (a Raiders of the Lost Ark reference), race to the oasis in a speedster where he catches a giant fish that swallows a page, and fly in a bi-plane to the jungle area and rescue some dinosaurs, again getting another page, all from someone named Mr. Hate. He ventures home on a Pterodactyl arranged by Dr. Kilroy for his trip back.
Pepper again returns to Lego Island, however, Papa & Mama are taken away by the Brickster where they will apparently become his personal chefs on Ogel Island. Pepper then collects the final pages and gets a radio that destroys the new Brickster-Bots, as pizzas don't harm them. After taking out several bots, the Informaniac directs him to go to the space port. All the pages are now supposedly returned.
Pepper then makes his way to the space port, and, after both centrifuge & parachute training, takes a rocket to Ogel Island. Since the Brickster stole the landing gear on the spaceship, Pepper is forced to parachute down to the surface, the training being paid off. On the asteroid, he makes pizzas to send the citizens to sleep, while getting Mama & Papa out of their predicament. He then confronts the Brickster in his Lego palace. In the end the Brickster is left trapped in his palace cage and Lego Island is safe again.
In the final scene, Pepper, Mama and Papa fly home. When they return, Pepper gets a girlfriend (who jumps on him and madly kisses him). Soon there is a dance party where everyone is present, later which Brickster-Bots jump out of some crates holding them. However with the music they start dancing too.
Secret[edit | edit source]
The PC version of the game contains one 'easter egg': When the game is complete, if the player goes to the top of the space port mountain and jumps down the seaward side, a secret cave opens in the back of the mountain if the player types "sdreams". The cave at the back will now have a swirling portal effect: walking through this loads up the secret cave, where there are Lego minifigures of all the developers of the game, some as Lego Island characters.
Criticisms[edit | edit source]
The PC version of the game has been criticised for extremely long loading times.
Characters[edit | edit source]
The game has a variety of Lego characters. Many of the characters from the original game, characters like the Infomaniac, Laura, Nick, Papa, Mama, Nubby, and many more familiar faces. Additional characters are added, people like Darren (one of the producers of the game), soccer players, DJ, Technician Bob, etc.
There are also non-player characters in the game that are based on the Lego minifigures for popular collections of Lego in 2001: people like Johnny Thunder, Cedric the Bull, and Mr. Hates (Sam Sinister or Baron von Baron).
