The sequel to Rovio's original Angry Birds Star Wars game has just hit the App Store following the public launch of iOS 7. Angry Birds Star Wars IIis based on the “Star Wars” movie prequels and allows players to join either the Pork Federation or the “Pork Side” to play as the pig Darth Maul, Emperor Palpatine, and more.

Angry Birds Star Wars II includes more than 30 playable characters along with support for Telepods, allowing users to place Angry Birds Star Wars figurines on the front-facing camera of a device to unlock new birds within the game.


Our sister site TouchArcade has published a detailed review of Angry Birds Star Wars II, describing the game mechanics, in-app purchases, and more.

It's tricky reviewing Angry Birds games now, as I'm really not sure what can be said anymore about these games that we haven't already in reviewing the half dozen or so other Angry Birds games. Everyone knows how they play, everyone knows the premise, and you'd be hard pressed to find someone who hasn't at least tried (and vaguely enjoyed) an Angry Birds game.

Like its gaming forefathers, Angry Birds Star Wars II is a great game. There's a reason why the Angry Birds global dynasty exists, and that's because Rovio knows how to make killer video games that appeal to gamers of all types and all ages. ABSII is fun as heck regardless of whether you're just breezing through levels with the included birds, or slamming your head against the three star wall. Even calling it a "refinement" of the originals seems weird, as Rovio perfected the Angry Birds formula years ago.

Angry Birds Star Wars II is a universal app that can be downloaded from the App Store for $0.99. [Direct Link]

I think I played maybe 10 levels on the original.. Kind of tired of Angry Birds at this point.
