The quarrel which started with a stolen egg has now reached its limits! Since the teaser was released, we have all been waiting and now, its here – the epic fusion of the classic Star Wars series and the chart topper Angry Birds game. Lets see if Angry Birds Star Wars is worth the hype.

The 28 megabyte game welcomes you to a galaxy far far away and if find the interface familiar, you are not wrong – the game retains its planet/asteroid themed menu, as in the earlier release – Angry Birds Space. The current version has two main worlds – Tatooine and Death Star. The former sports the classic gameplay while the Death Star needs you to mind the gravity as in the Space version. The Path of the Jedi (unlockable world), Hoth World (coming soon) and a Bonus world are also part of the package. The background score is of the original Star Wars and succeeds in creating the nostalgic and triumphant mood.

And about the gameplay, you know the drill! You are the Angry Bird and you have to catapult yourself into the pig castle and poof them all. Finish a level with spare birds and less ruins to get the three stars!  If you are a person who haven’t heard of Angry Birds, slap yourself and then run to this awesome review by .

Now that we are all on the same page, lets see where the Jedi vs Sith comes into play. Actually, the answer is “everywhere”. All angry ones represent one of the good boys and vice versa. The iconic red bird casts Luke Skywalker with the blonde hair and more importantly, the Lightsaber. While in the skies, tap on screen and the saber cuts through everything around it.  The yellow pyramid bird has now developed a laser which pierce through the cheap stuff but reflects at metal surfaces  Don’t forget the black Obi Wan bird using The Force to scatter objects at your finger tips. (Will keep you updated about new characters as I spend more time and unlock new worlds.)

The Darth Vader team is not weak, either. The pigs are well protected by the Stormtrooper helmets and in occasional levels, we get to meet the dark lord himself. Its a pleasure seeing red lasers and the lightsabers tear him apart! Besides, for the first time in Angry Birds, the pigs are trying some attack strategies with their rhythmic laser shooter. Sligshoot your limited Jedi Birds, sneak through the perpetual lasers and keep no pigs breathing, to complete the levels.

Angry Birds Star Wars Review

The developers deserve special appreciation on integrating considerable Star Wars elements into the game yet not oozing out even a micron of the classic Angry Bird adrenaline. Many levels require timing and strategy (unlike past version) and provides a new experience. Overall, this game flips my thumb up, with the huge number of levels and the perfect balance between the two classics. And for just 99 cents, I believe this is the best game, a dollar could ever buy.
