WHETHER you’re a mad Star Wars fan who has spent the past week or so debating the merits of the franchise shifting into Disney’s hands, or simply an Angry Birds aficionado desperate for another round of physics-based, avian flinging fare, Angry Birds Star Wars is going to tick all of the boxes.
What’s not to like about pigs regaled in Stormtrooper outfits? Or airborne birds with lightsabers?
The game mechanics don’t change (and nor should they), but this shot in the arm from a creative content perspective gives Angry Birds a new lease of life on iOS.
The Star Wars theme presents the perfect opportunity to mix ground-based levels with the anti-gravity challenges seen in Angry Birds Space, while Skywalker fans will love the fact that two entertainment heavyweights have picked the right time to come together, much as Lego did some years ago.
Always accessible and increasingly imaginative, the Force is most certainly with Angry Birds Star Wars.
