Angry Birds Star Wars Reaches Top Spot in App Stores, Gets Very Good Reviews
Angry Birds Star Wars is proving to be quite the hit, reaching the top spots of all app stores and getting some very good reviews. In just 2.5 hours after its launch it reached number one in the US iOS App Store, blowing away all previous records. The Guardian praises this release as the best Angry Birds and also the best Star Wars related game in a long time.
Lots of Star Wars references are what make this game truly unique and fun to play, in order to discover even more hidden stuff to laugh at or simply appreciate. Rovio really let their creative juices flow this time and they really surprised everyone on a bunch of occasions. For example the bonus levels with R2D2 are a nice touch and so are the battles with Darth Vader and Tie Fighters. They manage to keep things funny without being ironic when it comes to Star Wars and its story.
The addition of Chewbacca as a huge furry bird is very cute and funny, while the pistol packing Han Solo is very game changing, since his lasers will ricochet on the backgrounds and kill quite a few Snouttroopers. I can only say that we’re looking forward to the icy Hoth planet update.
