Prepare to take a trip to a dimpled, plastic galaxy far, far away. Warner Bros. has just released LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga to the iOS App Store. And even better, they finally figured out something to do with the Phantom Menace!
First released back in 2007, LEGO Star Wars is the game that pretty much kicked off the entire LEGO games fad by recreating the plots of Phantom Menace, Attack Of The Clones and Revenge Of The Sith in the world of LEGO and allowing characters to play minifigs modeled after Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, Yoda, and more.
A couple years later, Warner Bros. followed-up their breakthrough hit with LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy, which was basically the game fans wanted the first time, focusing on the adventures of Luke Skywalker and Han Solo.
Now on the App Store, LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga mashes up both of those games as one app. Even better, it’s free… well, kind of. In a stroke I think is sort of genius, Warner Bros. is just giving away the episode of the game based on the crappiest Star Wars movie — I refer, of course, to The Phantom Menace — and letting players unlock the others as in-app purchases.
If you’re a LEGO fan or a Star Wars fan — and let’s face it, you’ve got to be at least one of those — you’ll want to give this a download.
