If you’re a fan of the Angry Birds, then you need to listen up. If you’re a fan of George Lucas’ Star Wars saga, then you’re definitely going to be interested in one of the latest releases from Rovio – Angry Birds Star Wars. It combines the best of both worlds, and it’s a great multi-platform game that is high on my must have list.
The story starts the same way – 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! You command the Rebel birds, striking from a hidden base. They have won their first victory against the evil Imperial Pigs. During the battle, Rebel spies managed to steal secret plans to the Empire’s ultimate weapon, the PIG STAR, and are racing to deliver the plans to the Rebel Birds.
The game plot line follows the movies with, of course, the Angry Birds bent thrown in. You can use the Force, wield your light saber, and blast Pigtroopers. You’re on an intergalactic journey from the deserts of Tatooine to the depths of the Pig Star. There, you’ll face off against the terrifying Darth Vader, Dark Lord of the Pigs. It’s time to grab your light saber and join the adventure! May the Flock be with you!
I really like the Angry Birds franchise. I usually play the games multiple times a week while commuting on the train to and from work. Angry Birds Star Wars initially struck me as a bit tacky, but the bird abilities and powers were cool and I quickly got hooked. You get to use light sabers, blasters and the Force throughout the entire game. The game has more than 80 levels in iconic locations like Tatooine and the Pig Star. It’s a must have on any platform you have available to you.
