The wait is finally over. Your favorite game and your favorite movie have joined forces to become one in what looks like the most exciting addition to the series yet. I’m talking, of course, about Rovio’s Angry Birds Star Wars, which is now available to download on your Android and iOS devices.
The game employs much the same Angry Birds mechanic we’ve all grown to love: the aim is to fire birds from a catapult into the army of pigs that have stolen their eggs. Only this time around, those birds have lightsabers, blasters, and Jedi powers, and the pigs are stormtroopers.
Join an epic adventure with the Angry Birds in the legendary Star Wars universe! Use the Force, wield your lightsaber, and blast away Pigtroopers on an intergalactic journey from the deserts of Tatooine to the depths of the Pig Star — where you’ll face off against the terrifying Darth Vader, Dark Lord of the Pigs! Can you become a Jedi Master and restore freedom to the galaxy?
Angry Birds Star Wars promises “hours and hours” of engaging gameplay, with more than 80 levels in iconic locations. You can level up your birds and continue to improve their skills, and there are hidden goodies like R2-D2 and C-3PO bonus levels. And if you’re stuck on a tricky level, you can call in the Mighty Falcon to rain down the destruction.
