Rovio has been releasing new versions of Angry Birds every few months and once again, they have a new hit on their hands. After releasing Angry Birds in Space, topping an astronaut on the Internation Space Station performing an angry birds experiment was going to be hard to top. What better way to top it than licensing the name Star Wars. Angry Birds Star Wars is a wonderful mix of the previous Angry Birds games and thos items we have come to expect to be associated with Star Wars such as Chewbacca, Light Sabers, and R2D2 and 3CpO.
With two levels built into the Star Wars version of Angry Birds, this game makes for hours more of entertainment, frustration and elation upon completion. Aptly labeled Tatooine and DeathStar, the first two levels will give the average user two to 4 hours of game play. But there is a hidden secret within this version of the game. An in app purchase allows the user to buy the Path of the Jedi section of the game adding another whole section giving many more hours of game play.
We played the game on the iPad and found that the results were not unlike those we experienced in previous renditions. Rovio has made the game available on all of the major computing and smart phone / tablet platforms. The initial levels of the game for the iPad costs $2.99 USD with the Path of the Jedi section costing an addition $1.99 USD. If you are a fan of Angry Birds or of Star Wars, then this is the must have app of 2012.
