The Bad Piggies have struck again! They can’t seem to leave your little birds alone. Only this time, you can add lightsabers, Jedi powers and Chewbacca to the mix. Quite a few things have changed in this installment of the iconic mobile game franchise.
A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away … birds and pigs had no bodies and fought a massive war against one another. The Angry Birds are back and they are more eclectic than ever before. The first installment of this gaming franchise has attracted millions of people from all over the world. Everyone wants to help the little colorful birds get their stolen eggs back from the Bad Piggies. The mobile game’s simple yet challenging gameplay spoke to players of all ages and backgrounds.
In Angry Birds, you use your feathery creatures as slingshot ammunition to destroy not only your opponents’ fortresses of steel, wood and stone, but also to defeat the piggies themselves. Use your touchscreen to find the right angle and then shoot them across the map. It is important to get a good understanding of the game’s physics engine to successfully complete all levels.
Angry Birds: Star Wars is more than just a simple rehash of the original installment, as you might’ve guessed from the title. The game is a re-interpretation of the basic gameplay within the Star Wars universe. Your birds take on the role of the rebel fighters opposing the Empire’s evil Pigtroopers. The rebels are trying everything in their power to destroy the Imperial Pigs. They managed to steal blue prints for the Empire’s ultimate weapon, the Pig Star, which is only the first step in defeating the piggies.
What seems like an absurd mix of two vastly different franchises ends up being a fun and entertaining re-interpretation of an straightforward, yet challenging casual game. In Angry Birds: Star Wars, your birds are equipped with lightsabers, blasters and Jedi powers to effectively destroy the Imperial Pigs’ fortresses. These are more sturdy than ever.
More than 250 levels are set in the popular science fiction universe, covering locations from Tatooine and outer space. Earn as many stars as possible in each of these settings to uncover secret missions. The mobile app is free-to-play on all Android devices, but comes for a small fee on iOS devices.
