One of my earliest memories is when my father took me to see The Empire Strikes Back. It was at this huge movie theatre located right off of Route 9 in Framingham, Massachusetts, and we waited outside for what seemed like forever just to see the film. By the time I left a few hours later, I was converted. I was a Star Wars fan.

As a result, I love all things Star Wars. When Zen Pinball first introduced Star Wars pinball as an in-app purchase in their game, I bought it and enjoyed banging on my screen. Now, Star Wars Pinball is its own app, complete with three different tables. Well, kinda. Let’s take on the Kessel Run after the jump. (more…)

First the original, then Seasons, then Rio, then Space, then Piggies and now Star Wars? At first I thought Rovio were running out of ideas; a collaboration between the somewhat serious Star Wars venture and a bunch of oversized quick-tempered birds seemed off the table. Despite my initial doubts, however, Rovio’s newest release is as addictive as ever.

Angry Birds Star Wars is that classic gameplay we all know and love put into a context that we are equally affectionate towards — that of the Star Wars franchise. This unlikely combination actually suprised me with its comical charm, something i wasn’t sure that would be retained. Will the birds still stay strong in this sequel? Let’s find out. (more…)

I love science fiction, whether it’s movies or books, and I’ve always found it fun to transplant myself into the mythical environment of the film you’re watching or the book you’re reading. That far off place with all the cool gizmos and wild surroundings and interesting creatures. Star Wars has that appeal for me and a lot of other people, and LucasArts has done some great things with the franchise to keep its fans interested all these years.

One such thing has been video game development. There are a lot of really great Star Wars games out there for various platforms, and one of the most recent releases is Star Wars Pit Droids for the iPhone. The game was released as a bit of a promotion for the re-release of Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace in 3D. Let’s check it out. (more…)

The original Star Wars film may have been released over 30 years ago, but the Star Wars universe is still going strong. A good example of this is the wide variety of Star Wars-themed games available in the App Store today.

One of the latest releases is Star Wars Arcade: Falcon Gunner, and it takes all of the fun of the movies and puts you right in the middle of it all. But is it worth the money? Hit the jump to find out.


Star Wars video games have a rich history dating all the way back to the original title on the NES (amazing game, impossible to beat) and even a few Atari and arcade games before that. This legacy is now carried on in a place we could’ve never imagined back in the NES days: on our phones.

Below we’ll take a look at the four primary Star Wars titles available for iOS. Whether you’re a tower defense fan, an RPG addict or just itching to pilot the Millennium Falcon, there’s something here for you.
