“A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away… a group of desperate rebel birds faced off against a galactic menace: the Empire’s evil Pigtroopers!” Finally, after multiple teaser videos, Rovio has released Angry Birds Star Wars in the Google Play Store, taking the birds into the world (or galaxy) of Jedis and lightsabers.
The game’s levels take place in many different iconic places from the original movies, including Tatooine and the Pig Star (an Angry Birds take on the Death Star), with a total of more than 80 levels that lead up to facing off against Darth Vader, Dark Lord of the Pigs. The gameplay has learned a few new tricks as well, letting the birds use lightsabers, blasters and Jedi powers against the pigs and their contraptions. Oh, and you can also level up your birds with new skills, or call the Mighty Falcon to rain down destruction if you get stuck on a level.
Both a free version with ads and an HD version with no ads costing $2.99 are available. Just how different the game is from the earlier Angry Birds games, that remains to be seen. Hit the links below to download Angry Birds Star Wars. And I just have to say, “May the birds be with you!”
