Angry Birds Star Wars HD 1.0.0
No, no, and no
I hate to buy a game and then have continual pop ups asking for more money to continue!
"Bait & Switch"
I don`t pay for alot of apps, so imagine my surprise when the game I paid for asks for more $$$$. I love the game, but how about being straight with customers? It would be great if the vendor did not try to "nickel and dime" the customer.
YES!!! New Hoth Update!!!!
It`s essentially a Best Of compilation of Angry Birds so far, but with the Star Wars universe wrapped around it, starting with the TIE Fighters on the intro screen. Yes, with the proper sound. The initial Angry Birds Star Wars download includes 80 levels split equally between two worlds: Tatooine and the Death Star. A further 40 levels are available in a third world, Dagobah, if you choose to buy it for an in-app purchase, but the game also teases an upcoming free update with a fourth world, Hoth. There is also a set of bonus levels starring C-3PO and R2-D2 birds to unlock.
The gameplay is familiar Angry Birds - catapult birds to destroy all the pigs on a level, earning one, two or three stars depending how well you do it.
Within the worlds, you segue smoothly between levels offering the two flavours of Angry Birds (Space and non-Space). For example, the Death Star world starts you in Space, then moves inside, then back out again for a final Death Star trench run. There are a number of other Star Wars additions. For example, a few levels into Tatooine, the red bird gets a light sabre, which you swing to destructive effect at any point during his flight by tapping the screen. He even has Luke Skywalker hair.
Meanwhile, the yellow bird now shoots lasers - complete with authentic Star Wars sound effects - the black bird can use The Force to send objects shooting off with a tap, and there`s a heavy Chewbacca bird to barrel through obstacles. The pigs? They dress as stormtroopers, Darth Vader and even get to hop in Tie-Fighters and fire lasers of their own.
All this is more than just for show: it moves the Angry Birds gameplay on a notch, particularly when lasers are involved. Think thwacking laser beams with the light sabre in mid-air to hit hard-to-reach pigs, or dislodging laser-firing enemies so they end up shooting their own side. Rovio has also reworked its Mighty Eagle power-up: it`s now the Mighty Falcon. When triggered, a Millennium Falcon flies onto the screen and lets loose with its lasers to (hopefully) reduce to dust a level that you`ve been struggling with.
The pigs get to dress up as stormtroopers and Darth Vader
There`s a good 5-6 hours gameplay to be had working your way through the Tatooine, Death Star and Dagobah worlds by completing the levels with one, two or three stars. Then there are a fair few more hours in store if you go back to nail three stars on every level, as a lot of Angry Birds fans like to do. The iOS version builds in Apple`s Game Center to compare friends` scores and in-game achievements.
