There are several components of the LEGO Brick Tales universe that you discover very early on but are unable to use or interact with until much later. One such component is the pile of brown bricks and coin-like blocks that you find in all of the different worlds, each covered in a blue, shimmering, shiny-like effect.

These brown piles of bricks are actually considered to be dirt in-game. They often cover animals or block pathways to explore more areas of each world. Before you’re able to clean away this dirt you need to unlock the Water power. You do this by reaching the Medieval world and following the main story there.

After you get the pile of coins for the dragon, you get to explore a cave. This is where you find the source of the poison that has tainted the town’s water supply. During this section, you will get a new power that allows Rusty to shoot water from a gun. Once you have that ability unlocked, you can use the water gun to spray the areas of shining brown dirt, clearing it out and revealing the secrets left behind.
