NewImageAfter weeks of teasers and hints, Rovio has finally released Angry Birds Star Wars. Don't expect anything revolutionary, however. The game is exactly what one would expect: Angry Birds, but with a Star Wars theme.

Our sister-site TouchArcade has a walkthrough video of some gameplay and some background about how the game actually works.

In fact it's drenched with Star Wars stuff. Every level, bird, and most of the game's mechanics, both old or new, are covered in a thick layer of Star Wars.

Red bird, for example, resembles Luke and has a secondary lightsaber attack that shears through hard surfaces and pigs. The blue bird is now a rebel pilot, able to fire spread shots from its pistol. Levels are set in classic Star Wars backdrops and every time the game introduces a "new" bird, you'll see a classic Star Wars scene starring the birds.


Angry Birds Star Wars is available on iPhone ($0.99), iPad ($2.99), and the Mac ($4.99).

I've kind of lost my faith in Star Wars after Lucas ruined the prequels and then sold everything to Disney...but I haven't lost my faith in Angry Birds! Keep on milking those birds Rovio, I'll keep buying!


Can't wait for the flood of comments about "should be a universal app!!" I'm sure every single person who is paying $0.99 because all they want is the iPod/Phone version would disagree with the notion of a more expensive universal app ;)

I just want iCloud save game. I dont mind paying for both versions but its frustrating playing the same levels over again.

The Force is strong with this one.

If you like Star Wars, and you like Angry Birds, you will like this game. If you don't, why are you even reading this?

C-3PO: "But Sir! The odds of successfully writing dialogue worse than George Lucas is one thousand, seven hundred and twenty to one!

Disney: "Never tell me the odds . . . "

Yes, a lot of us lost faith when the prequels were made, however based on how Disney handled the Avengers, I see a bright future for the Star Wars brand...
