Angry Birds Star Wars is an action video game, a crossover between the Star Wars franchise and the Angry Birds series of video games, launched on November 8, 2012, first for Windows, iOS and Android devices, later also to Mac and BlackBerry. The game is the fifth Angry Birds game in the series and was first revealed on the Angry Birds Facebook page. The characters are copyrighted from George Lucas's double-trilogy. On July 15, 2013, Rovio announced another Angry Birds Star Wars game based on the Star Wars prequel trilogy via their Facebook page. On July 18, 2013, Rovio announced that Angry Birds Star Wars will be heading for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, Xbox 360, Wii, Wii U and the Nintendo 3DS on October 29, 2013 in conjunction with Activision.
The game combines elements of both Angry Birds and Angry Birds Space, featuring levels that take place on both standard terrain and in outer space. The game begins on Tatooine, Luke Skywalker's home planet, moves to the Death Star, travels to Hoth, and with an in-app purchase (or earning 3-stars on Tatooine/Death Star) goes to Dagobah, and ends up in Cloud City. With the exclusion of Blue Bird, all the Birds are given new powers not yet seen before in a canon Angry Birds title, some of these that are upgraded as the game progresses further. You can play previously completed levels with the upgraded abilities.
Differences from other games is that Birds may still perform their chosen abilities moments after colliding with an object. The Millennium Falcon is used instead of the "Mighty/Space Eagle" found in previous games. When a certain number of stars are earned, the player gets a reward. It can be either 5 Millennium Falcons (a consumable item that may be used during normal levels at the cost of one bird each) or access to a Golden Droid level. There are multiple Golden Droid levels that are unlocked as you collect more stars and additional bonus levels if you manage to hit certain droids hidden in selected levels. On June 13, 2013 power-ups were added.
Angry Birds Star Wars currently has 7 worlds on most platforms. They are Tatooine, the Death Star, Hoth, Cloud City, Boba Fett Missions, Moon of Endor, Path of the Jedi, and the Golden Droid bonus levels, with the Death Star II coming soon. To unlock Path of the Jedi, the player must get 3 stars on all the Tatooine and Death Star levels or purchase access. To unlock Boba Fett Missions, the player must collect all 5 jetpacks scattered throughout the game or purchase access.
The game has received favorable reviews with a Metacritic score of 88/100 based on 22 reviews. Mark Brown of Pocket Gamer gave the title a Gold Award, praising the game for being "faithful to the source material" and "filled with content". Justin Davis of IGN says it is a great game with Star Wars references and Force powers, and has a huge variety of perfectly-tuned stages.
