Angry Birds Star Wars

Rovio is finally updating Angry Birds Star Wars to include its final 30 levels and a finale to the saga in the game. There are 15 levels on an Imperial Star Destroyer and 15 levels on the Death Star, all of which build up to boss fights against Lard Vader and the Emperor. We’ll also finally see Lard Vader unmasked at the conclusion.

Unfortunately, Rovio’s first Star Wars crossover had to come to an end sometime, but it looks like they’re going to make this ending almost as epic as the original Star Wars trilogy. The update (and original game) is free to download below.

‘Tiny Death Star’ 8-bit Star Wars game released to Google Play

Star Wars Game

If you’re into Nimblebit’s “Tiny Towers” game, then you’ll certainly love it with a taste of everyone’s favorite sci-fi franchise.

The “Tiny Death Star” game, made by the folks over at Nimblebit in the same vein as their hit, “Tiny Towers,” challenges players to build a Death Star (which surprisingly has convenience stores and restaurants built in) in order to raise enough revenue to complete the Death Star and take over the galaxy. It’s a bit of a stretch, but it’s a comical spin-off of the Star Wars series, and promises to be highly addictive. NPCs will come in and out of the Death Star even while you’re not playing (real time component built in) and purchase merchandise from your virtual shops, and buy apartments, etc.

The game also builds in random mini-games in which you’ll have to search for spies or tend to bounty hunters, adding to the Star Wars theme of the game. Hit the break for a video, screens, and a link to the app in the Play Store.

You may have thought it was only natural that one would play an Angry Birds Star Wars character on the light side of the Force. Rovio shows us in their latest title that it was not always that way though, as Angry Birds Star Wars II follows along with the events from the prequel movies and gives players the opportunity to feel the power of the Pork Side. That’s right, players can now select characters like Darth Maul, Darth Vader, General Grievous, or Emperor Palpatine as they battle to become a Sith Master. » Read the rest

Rovio Tweets A Sneak Peek At Coming Angry Birds Star Wars Content

by Rudy Rivapalacio on
tagged , ,

Using the hash tags #ComingSoon and #EscapeFromHoth, Rovio tweeted an image (above) of a sling-shot equipped millennium falcon. Putting two and two together, it looks like Rovio is planning an update to Angry Birds Star Wars. No details as of yet, but at the very least Android gamers can expect more time-wasting pig-slaughtering levels. Perhaps, as the image suggests, the rebellion will shift to an underground environment, but that’s just speculation. All we know for sure is Rovio is planning something.

New Angry Birds Star Wars trailer offers deeper look at game play

by Rudy Rivapalacio on
tagged , , ,

The November 8th release date for Angry Birds Star Wars is fast approaching and Rovio has teased us with another trailer. This one gives us a much better look at what the game play will be like (SPOILER: you fling birds at pigs) and shows us a few more characters than last week’s teaser. The biggest crossover in casual gaming history looks like it will have everything we’d hoped for: light sabers? check! chewbacca with a beak? check! borderline incestuous birds? check! OK, we still don’t know about that one but there IS a Luke and Leia.
