To get started, players attach Gamer Kid to his LEGO Toy Tag and place him on the LEGO Toy Pad to bring him to life in the game, where he can help them put rogue Midway Arcade characters back where they belong. Players can activate Gamer Kid’s Stealth, Laser, Speed, Invulnerability, and Super Strength abilities to solve puzzles and battle enemies. When things get dangerous, players can boost their gameplay with the G-6155 Spy Hunter which can be rebuilt into The Interdiver and Aerial Spyhunter, or the Arcade Machine which rebuilds into the 8-Bit Shooter and The Pixilator Pod for upgraded in-game abilities. Gamer Kid also unlocks the Midway Arcade Adventure World to provide players with additional open-world gameplay.

I don’t know about you, but I can hear Peter Gunn’s theme in my head now as I try to put on my sneakers and type this at the same time in order to get to Gamestop and buy these packs. As always, the fun packs are on sale for $7.49 while the level pack is available for $19.99. Spyhunter was my all time favorite arcade game and I can’t wait to play it. What about you? Let us know
