Building with blocks is in these days. Ever since the release of a certain little game, Minecraft, building structures on your computer screen has become a delightful and time-consuming pass time that, in all honesty, is addicting beyond belief.
Long before that game came into our lives, there were Legos; you remember Legos, don’t you? Today, we will review a rather obscure application known as the Lego Digital Designer. With plenty of bricks and pieces to play with, this official Lego application isn’t a game, LDD is only a create-your-own-lego-thing app. Does the app warrant a download, though?

I’ve always had a thing for Lego. When I was a kid, I lived and breathed the blocks, playing with them every day until eventually, I grew up and sold them all to buy a Game Boy. About 5 years ago, I decided to get back into them a bit as a relaxation technique, and now I find myself picking up a set every few months.
Recently, Lego reinvented themselves by adding a video game lineup to the mix. For the past few years they’ve put out games such as Lego Batman, Lego Star Wars and Lego Indiana Jones, all based on the popular properties.
Their latest one is Lego Harry Potter (Years 1-4), and it’s available on the Mac App Store right now. So how does the Mac version stack up to the console models?
