6 LEGO Ninjago Games That are the Coolest

LEGO Ninjago continues to be a hit TV cartoon series for Cartoon Network. Originally the four ninjas -- Kai, Cole, Jay and Zane (joined by Nya and Sensei Wu) -- were searching for the legendary Green Ninja, and then the Golden Ninja. Then the series was rebooted into the future, which put our heroes up against villains with mech and tech. After the huge success of The LEGO Movie, Warner Bros. announced that a LEGO Ninjago movie is in production, set to be released in theaters in 2016.

LEGO Ninjago has inspired several games since it premiered in 2011. Here's a rundown of the most popular games and apps you can find.
