Amidst all the holiday sales and out-of-nowhere releases, it's important to remember that the App Store still picks one app or game out of the crowd to be featured as its App of the Week. And to get a price drop to zero dollars for the duration. This week, they've chosen Angry Birds Star Wars II.
In his review back in September, our own Blake Grundman said, "The Force is strong with this one. This IS the game we’re looking for." Seems like more than enough of a reason to check it out for free, right?
A new update has made its way to Angry Birds Star Wars II, bringing users 44 new levels in the latest chapter of Battle of Naboo. There are 20 new Pork Side levels that include an attack on Naboo's captial city where players will face Qui-Gon Jinn in a boss battle, and the 20 new Bird Side levels continue the battle on Naboo before heading into space. The other 4 levels are secrets for players to unlock.
The update also adds three new characters which are available for free. This includes Padme, Captain Panaka, and Zam Wesell.
Angry Birds Star Wars II comes flying in with a new update that adds 8 secret levels. Users must find hidden maps throughout in order to unlock the new secret levels. The levels also add 4 new characters which include Hologram Darth Sidious, Silver C3PO, Red Battle Droid, and Shadowtrooper.
Now go use the force to locate those secret levels!
Beware the pork side. Rovio's sequel to their spin-off based on one of the most popular movie franchises of all time is here!
Angry Birds Star Wars II follows (loosely) the events in the "Star Wars" prequels, and even lets players decide whether they want to be good, or play for "The Pork Side." It's more of the same great Angry BIrds physics mayhem you know and love but with two sides to play, over 30 playable characters, the ability to swap characters in the slingshot as you play (finally!), and Telepods integration.
We are just under a week to go before Angry Birds Star Wars II launches on the App Store, coming September 19th. To get everyone excited, Rovio has released a new gameplay trailer that shows all the light and dark side action that will be available in the game. Will you fight with the birds or join the pork side? Check out the trailer!
Get ready to join the pork side of the force as Angry Bird Star Wars II draws even closer by receiving an official release date of September 19th. Along with the release date comes a new trailer for the game that features the voice of Ian McDiarmid who played Emperor Palpatine in the original Star Wars films, reports Pocket Gamer.
So who's ready for "UNLIMITED POWWWWAAAHHHHHH!!" when joining the pork side of the force? Check out the trailer below!
Rovio Entertainment announced Angry Birds Star Wars II, which will follow the story of the three prequel Star Wars movies. Things are in place to take a twist towards the dark side in the upcoming game as well as players can choose to "join the pork side" and play as one of the evil piggies.
Angry Birds Star Wars II is set to get even more interesting as Hasbro is adding an interactive capability to the gameplay and content of the game by releasing Telepods. Think Skylanders; Telepods are physical toy characters that players can place on their iPhone or iPad camera and scan it into the game. There will be over 30 physical characters at launch for players to teleport into their games, Skylanders style.
Being a fan of Skylanders myself, I'm highly interested in checking out this new Angry Birds experience, which will launch on the App Store this September, 19th.
“Angry Birds Star Wars was a blockbuster hit for us and Lucasfilm with over 100 million downloads since its release. We are thrilled to be able to introduce the exciting next chapter in the Angry Birds Star Wars saga to our fans around the world,” said Jami Laes, Executive Vice President of Games at Rovio Entertainment, in a press release. “Some of the most amazing character additions are versions of young Anakin, Mace Windu and Darth Maul. Hasbro’s TELEPODS technology also provides a great way to extend the experience beyond the app and bring a whole new dimension to the gameplay.”
