What do you get when you combine two of the most successful and recognizable franchises in the world? Angry Birds Star Wars. That’s right, just as expected, Rovio has released the highly anticipated Star Wars version of its popular Angry Birds game this evening. And it’s now available in the App Store…

As much as Rovio’s been promoting the game, you probably know everything you need to know about it. But just in case you need a refresher, here’s the official trailer:

And the synopsis from the App Store:

“Join an epic adventure with the Angry Birds in the legendary Star Wars™ universe! Use the Force, wield your lightsaber, and blast away Pigtroopers on an intergalactic journey from the deserts of Tatooine to the depths of the Pig Star — where you’ll face off against the terrifying Darth Vader, Dark Lord of the Pigs! Can you become a Jedi Master and restore freedom to the galaxy?”

Angry Birds Star Wars doesn’t stray too far away from the gameplay elements that have made the franchise what it is today. After purchase, users will get free updates, and there are various unlockable characters and levels. The game does, however, take advantage of  new gameplay mechanics (think light sabers).

If you’re a fan of either franchise, and especially if you’re a fan of both, you’ll want to check out Angry Birds Star Wars. The iPhone and iPod touch version will run you $0.99, the iPad version is a little more expensive at $2.99, and the Mac version is $4.99.

Have you tried Angry Birds Star Wars yet? Thoughts?

  • iPad version cost $2.99 same as other Angry Birds games
    $0.99 is iPhone and iPod Touch

      Fixed! Thanks!

  • I don’t understand why the iPad version should cost more, just because its bigger? Why don’t they just make a nice universal app instead of making people have to buy two separate apps for their devices and have one cost more than the other when they are exactly the same game.

    • because they’re doing business…not charity

      • They could be making a lot more money by selling one universal app for $4.99.

      • That $1 more than buying both separately. And syncing still wouldn’t be there since its server side.

      • Thats business for you. Seems to work out fine for other companies, just look at Gameloft. They make universal apps and they sync just fine. I started a game of Asphalt 7 on my iPhone, finished on my iPad. That extra dollar would help fund Rovio for servers to save our data and accounts which we would need to save and load our games onto different devices.

    • Just bought the iPhone version while also downloading it for free on Android. I love the way they do business 🙂

    Enough with the angry birds, already! they’re doing that franchise to death!

    • As long as they keep updating their apps, and making new games, people with kids especially will buy them.

      Im downloading it now. Its just to play every once in awhile like at a dr office.

    They would be free on androids. But still expensive on ipads, I think buying ABs on iphone is ultimately waste of money as well as on ipads.

  • disqus_0GF4SgIiRj

    I love it

  • It’s crashing for me when I pause the game and/or try to reset the game…
    galaxy s3…

  • Quit bitching about the price. You bought a $600+ iPad but can’t spare $2.99 for a game. WTF!?
