In the Lego Mixels game “Mixels Mania,” players select two Mixels to combine into new creatures and then use these creatures to play a mini-game called Nixel Knockout. Each player's goal is to level up his rank by scoring the most points.
In “Mixels Mania,” players have 12 rounds to earn as many points as possible. There are two ways to earn points. The first way is to select two Mixels and spin the wheel in the middle of the game window. The points that result are completely random. The second way to earn points is to click on as many Nixels as possible during the Nixel Knockout mini-game. Players can see their overall scores in the top-left corner of the game window.
To earn the most points, players must continuously click on Nixels during the mini-game to build up the super points meter. Once they power up the meter completely, players earn five times the amount of points for successfully taking down Nixels. This allows them to quickly increase their rank.
There are nine groups of Mixels from which to choose, and players can change between groups of Mixels by clicking on the arrows underneath the Mixel selection area. Players can also mix the different groups together.
