Story Mode Guide

Batman and Robin head to an old frosty factory to find The Riddler and Mr. Freeze.

From the start, defeat the goons and then head towards the upper-left corner of the area (to the left of the central fenced area) and destroy the glowing objects to reveal some LEGO pieces. Build them into a Robin Suit Swapper, where you can obtain the Magnet Suit. (This suit allows you to walk on magnetic surfaces.) After getting the suit, head to the center of the area and use the Batarang to hit the four flashing gate hinges, which will cause the gate to fall over. Head into the fenced area, then walk up the magnetic wall on the left and activate the switch until the upper large ice cream is red. Then, activate the switch below until the lower large ice cream is blue. Once all the ice cream colors are correct, the door to the factory will open up. Head inside to reach the next room.

Upon entering the next room, destroy all the objects on the floor to reveal several LEGO pieces, which are used to build both a push-handle switch and a Batman Suit Swapper. Use the switch to lower the ice jet blocking the next platform. Use the Batman Suit Swapper to obtain the Glide Suit. (This suit allows you to glide through the air by holding the "Jump" button.) Use the Glide Suit to glide across the gap (after you lower the ice jet) to the distant platform, where you can build a bridge to allow Robin to get across. Afterwards, head right and use the Batarang to hit the suspended ice blocks, which can be re-built into stairs to reach two buttons, which will turn off the ice jet to the right. Continue to the right and use the Magnet Suit to traverse up the magnetic wall, then build the grapple point to allow Batman to head over the wall with you. Continue to the right to find a magnetic pipe. Use the Magnet Suit to climb up the winding metal pipe and then push the block down to the lower platform. Build the pieces into a platform that you can use to reach the locked door to the next room. To open the door, use the Magnet Suit to climb up the metal wall on the side of the door and then activate the switch on top of the door. Head inside to reach the next room.

In the third room, use the Glide Suit to glide across the gap and then use the push-handle switch to move the nearby grapple point to the other platform, where the CPU-Robin will use his Grapple Hook to attach himself to the grapple point. Then, use the push-handle to move the grapple point back to Batman, allowing the two characters to reunite. Afterwards, use one character to stand on the button at the bottom of the stairs to the right (allowing the stairs to function as stairs), which will cause the CPU character to activate the button at the top of the stairs, allowing you to head up with him. Continue to the right and enter the ice cannon ahead to freeze the pools of ice cream and use them as platforms to reach the platform with a grapple point and a magnetic wall. Use the Magnet Suit to climb the wall and activate the switch, which will raise the grapple point to the top of the ledge, where the boss room door can be found. Push the block to the left of the door to the end of its path, and activate the two buttons on the right to open the door, allowing access to the final room.

BOSS: Mr. Freeze (6 Hearts)

Upon entering the boss room, defeat Mr. Freeze's goons and then wait for Mr. Freeze to get tired from using his Freeze Gun on you. This will open a chance for you to hit him. Repeat this step again until he loses two hearts. He will then retreat to the upper ledge and turn on the fan, which can be destroyed by building the cannon from the pieces that appear at the southern point of the room. Build the cannon, then jump on the button three times to shoot a cannonball at the fan, causing Mr. Freeze to drop down and attack you once more. Again, wait for him to get tired from using the Freeze Gun, then hit him until he loses two more hearts. He will again retreat to the upper ledge. This time, you need to climb the magnetic walls on either side of the room and activate the switch at the top of both walls to spawn two sets of LEGO pieces. Build each one into a pushable block. Push them both to the end of the path to drop a large ice block onto Mr. Freeze, causing him to come back and attack you one last time. Yet again, you must wait for him to get tired from using his Freeze Gun and then hit him until he loses his final two hearts, which will end the level.

Collectibles Guide

To obtain all the collectibles, you need a double-jump character, a double-jump toxic-resistant character, a mind-control character, a female character, a toxic-resistant character, the Demolition Suit, and the Glide Suit.

Minikits

1. From the start of the level, head to the north-western corner of the first room and use a mind-control character to activate the mind-control panel, which will open the nearby door to the back alley. Head to the back of the alley, then use a double-jump toxic-resistant character to jump from the toxic waste pool up to the platform, then up the ledges to reach the Minikit.

2. From the start of the level, head to the south-western corner of the first room and destroy the small table to reveal some LEGO pieces, which can be used to build the engine of the nearby ice cream truck. After building it, enter it and drive it onto the large green circle in the center of the room. Jump out of the vehicle, then use the Demolition Suit to destroy the silver ice cream stand nearby to reveal some more LEGO pieces, which build a switch. Activate it to cause the ice cream truck to transform into a large ice cream, which can be destroyed to reveal a Minikit.

3. From the start of the level, head to the south-western corner of the first room and destroy the small table to reveal some LEGO pieces, which can be used to build the engine of the nearby ice cream truck. After building it, enter it and drive it away from the wall to find a hidden super-strength handle behind it. Use a super-strength character to remove the wall panel and reveal a Minikit behind it.

4. From the start of the level, head to the right side of the first room and destroy the trash bins along the building wall to reveal some LEGO pieces. Build them into a ledge, which can be reached with a double-jump character. Continue climbing the building ledges to reach a Minikit at the top.

5. From the start of the level, head to the right side of the first room and destroy the trash bins along the building wall to reveal some LEGO pieces. Build them into a ledge, which can be reached with a double-jump character. Continue climbing the building ledges to find a window blocked by two wooden planks. Use the Batarang to destroy the planks, which will open the window and reveal the Minikit behind it.

6. From the start of the level, enter the fenced area to the north and use a double-jump character to reach the ledge to the right of the factory door. On top of the ledge, use the Demolition Suit to destroy the silver canisters and reveal the Minikit.

7. Climb the first magnetic wall in the second room, then jump from the top of that platform to a secret platform to the left, where a male-panel can be found. Use a female character to activate the panel, which will open the nearby door leading to a secret room. In the secret room, head to the north-western corner and use the Demolition Suit to destroy the silver canisters, opening a route to the Minikit in the back corridor.

8. At the start of the third room, use a toxic-resistant character to pass through the toxic gas to the north. Then, use the Demolition Suit to destroy the silver canister behind the gas, which will reveal a Minikit in the toxic gas, which can be reached with a toxic-resistant character.

9. From the platform with the boss door in the third area (before entering the boss room), head south-west to find a hidden platform. Use the Glide Suit to cross the large gap to the platform on the left, then continue left to find a silver door. Use the Demolition Suit to destroy the door, then ride the fan behind the door up to the Minikit. (To disable the fan, activate the nearby switch.)

10. From the platform with the boss door in the third area (before entering the boss room), head south-west to find a hidden platform. Use the Glide Suit to cross the large gap to the platform on the left, then continue to the far-left to find a ?-character. Use a mind-control character to control the character and activate the switch, which will open the door to the Minikit.

Red Brick

  • Fast Batarangs:' Climb the first magnetic wall in the second wall, then use the Glide Suit (or a double-jump character) to glide (or jump) from the top of the wall to the platform to the north-east, where an orange-handled block can be found. Use a super-strength character to remove the block and then enter the hole that is created. Use one character to stand on the button nearby, which will allow you to obtain the Red Brick using the other character.

Hostage

  • From the start of the level, head to the north-western corner of the first room and use a mind-control character to activate the mind-control panel, which will open the nearby door to the back alley. Head to the back of the alley to find this Hostage being held by a goon. Defeat the goon to rescue this hostage.
