After more than a month of teasing, Rovio has finally unleashed their latest Angry Birds game to the App Store, and this time around, it comes with a taste of The Force! Angry Birds Star Wars is an official tie-in to the movies, features exciting new gameplay elements, including lightsabers, blasters, and The Force, and mashups between Star Wars characters and your favorite angry Avian friends.
From the App Store description:
Join an epic adventure with the Angry Birds in the legendary Star Wars™ universe! Use the Force, wield your lightsaber, and blast away Pigtroopers on an intergalactic journey from the deserts of Tatooine to the depths of the Pig Star — where you’ll face off against the terrifying Darth Vader, Dark Lord of the Pigs! Can you become a Jedi Master and restore freedom to the galaxy?
The game is great – I’ve been playing it a bit this morning, and it really does feel like a new game rather than just another Angry Birds extension. Check out the official trailer to see what you’re in store for!
