KRE-O Cityville Invasion Haunted Hideaway Review (Hasbro)

What It Is

The Haunted Hideaway is part of the KRE-O Cityville Invasion line from Hasbro. This 317-piece construction set brings the app game Cityville Alien Invasion to life. Follow the instructions to build the haunted mansion with working drawbridge and the alien car. The set also includes five KREON figures: Baron Batcakes, Skeletron, Ian A. Allen, Agent Holster, and an additional mystery figure.

The set also features Hasbro's Sonic Motion technology, which helps bring the completed playset to life using an electronic unit. When activated this technology will make the entire playset vibrate. Place your KREON figures on the special platforms and place them on the playset. The figures will then move around the playset.

Is It Fun?

This set can provide the basis for a lot of open-ended, narrative-based play for Cityville invasion fans. We think younger kids will especially enjoy the moving electronics that bring the ghostly characters to life.

Who It’s For

The KRE-O Cityville Invasion Haunted Hideaway set is for ages 7–14.

What To Be Aware Of

We wish the vibrating feature worked a little better to move the characters around the set. You may need to give the figures a push forward as they move around the playset and play with the vibration levels, because sometimes the figures do get stuck in place because of the pegs on the base plate.

The app game associated with this set is for ages 9 and up.
