Two different video games were created in support of the Rock Raiders theme.

PC Game

LEGO Rock Raiders

  • Developer: Data Design Interactive
  • Publisher: Lego Media
  • Platform: Microsoft Windows
  • Released: 1999
  • Mode: Single Player
  • Media: CD-ROM
  • Input method: Mouse

The PC game is a RTS similar to Dune II, and was the first video game for the theme. The game opens with optional training missions and one actual mission unlocked. Most missions require the player to collect a certain amount of Energy Crystals, the required amount starts low but gradually gets higher in later missions. Some missions require the player to locate Rock Raiders that have been trapped in landslides, or to find certain pieces of equipment and bring it back to their base. One of the game's features is the Priority Menu. With this menu, you can set what order Rock Raiders carry out their tasks. For example, you can set whether Rock Raiders should collect Energy Crystals or LEGO Ore first.

At the end of each mission Chief would evaluate your work, examining various aspects of your mission. With all these taken into consideration, Chief would give a mission rating percentage.

There are twenty-five missions total, each of them is in either a rock, lava/volcanic or ice cavern environment. It is not necessary to complete every mission with 100%, or even complete all the missions, to complete the campaign.

PlayStation Game

LEGO Rock Raiders

  • Developer: Data Design Interactive
  • Publisher: LEGO Media International
  • Platform: PlayStation
  • Released: August 17th, 2000
  • Modes: Single Player/Multi Player

Unlike the PC game, the PlayStation game is an Action/Strategy game, in which the player actually takes control of a character, instead of just commanding a squad of them. Also unlike the PC game, which was centered around constructing a base and mining, the Playstation game centers around exploring.

Most missions require the player to collect a certain amount of Energy Crystals, while some missions require the player to rescue Rock Raiders that have been trapped by landslides.

There are eighteen campaign missions, and six multiplayer missions. The PAL version includes three bonus missions that are accessible after the campaign is completely finished.

Rather than a percentage, at the end of each mission you receive either a bronze medal (Minimum required objectives complete), a silver medal (Most objectives complete), or a gold medal (All objectives complete in the required time).
