We first told you about the Battle for Hoth in an early preview back in May. The long wait for Star Wars: The Battle For Hoth is over, as it is now available on the App Store for the iPhone and iPod Touch for $2.99.

“Just in time for the 30th anniversary celebration of The Empire Strikes Back, Star Wars: The Battle for Hoth offers an exciting, strategic gaming experience for fans of the original Star Wars series,” said Adam Comiskey, Vice President, THQ Wireless.

The Battle For Hoth is a Star Wars based tower defense game that puts you in defense of the Echo Base’s defenses, recreating the classic opening sequence of The Empire Strikes Back. In the game, you control the Rebel forces in a battle against the invading Imperial forces and their now iconic AT-AT walkers. With 15 levels to play and two gameplay modes, along with numerous weapons and units, such as ion cannons, snowspeeders, X-Wings, and gun towers, there should be plenty to keep anyone entertained, Star Wars fan or not.

Go on now, hurry up and save the base!
