Snappy app: Angry Birds Star Wars
A few years ago, I vowed I would never play an Angry Birds game, but this joining of Force(s) between Star Wars and Angry Birds has captured my attention.
Replacing Star Wars' Rebel Alliance with Rebel Birds and the Imperial forces with Imperial Pigs - as well as renaming the Empire's Death Star the Pig Star - the premis couldn't be more simple: fire birds, with a variety of powers, from a catapult to destroy structures, which in turn destroy the pigs hidden within.
I'm only a wee way through, but it's a humorous take on the Star Wars universe.
I'm playing on Android, and while the game is free for 80 levels, set on Tatooine and the Death Star, you have to pay a handful of dollars via in-app purchase for another 40 levels set on the planet Dagobah. iOS and Windows 8 players have to pay for the game.
Worth a play when you've got a few moments free. May the Pork be with you...
