Angry Birds Star Wars Review

Angry Birds Star Wars has finally been released! Following from Rovio’s huge success with the previous Angry Birds games, Angry Birds Star Wars sets a new standard for the popular smartphone game, and the new game feels like a breath of fresh air.


In Angry Birds Star Wars, the same underlying concept is still there; you fling birds at pigs with the main goal to do as much damage as possible with the least amount of birds. However, Angry Birds Star Wars flips the tables a bit by adding a little sprinkle of the Star Wars universe over the top.



Each bird has now been skinned with a Star Wars character, and on top of their new appearance, they’ve all been given new abilities that correspond to the character that they are portraying. For instance, the yellow bird has now been skinned as Han Solo, and instead of flying directly at a location when you tap the screen, the Han Solo bird will fire blaster bolts into the tapped location, whilst still keeping to its original flight path. The black bomb bird has been replaced with a force pushing Obi Wan Kenobi that can push objects out of the way, whilst still keeping a sturdy speed. These new abilities add to the experience and allow for some really interesting maps and level designs.



The levels themselves have managed to wonderfully incorporate the new bird’s abilities by creating levels that need the abilities to be completed. On one level Han Solo is needed to fire blaster bullets around corners by bouncing them off of metallic walls, and on another, Obi Wan Kenobi needs to force push meteors around objects in space.

The new Angry Birds game has magnificently captured the spirit of Star Wars and each level fits into a different scene within the Star Wars universe. Accompanied with the detailed backgrounds and the new Star Wars themed game mechanics are authentic Star Wars sounds and a bunch of suitably dressed Star Wars pigs.



There’s a huge amount of variety in the game as well; there’s a total of 30 different birds and pigs that can be found in the game and they’re all placed in their appropriate backgrounds. It’s very amusing to go into space and fight tie fighter pigs and then go back down to Tatooine where the Angry Birds crew are fighting against Tusken Raiders and Storm Troopers.



If you’re not too into Star Wars, don’t fret because the underlying Angry Birds game concept is still there, and stronger than ever. The graphics have been worked on, and a lot of effort has gone into each one of the levels to make them feel unique and challenging to all players.

Tusken Raiders and Storm Troopers? Surely they mean Pork Ruskan Raiders and Quorn Troopers?   Smiley Very Happy

Kind of cool but Not reccomened for Budget Phone users.....Uses a Lot of Memory Smiley Happy


I've had a quick go at Angry Birds Star Wars on my Samsung Galaxy Note, looks good on a big screen. But not really bothered about it as I'm not a fan of Star Wars. Tbh they are doing Angry Birds to death. I'm sure they will run out of ideas or people will get board of it.

I like this one a lot, it's much better the Angry Birds Space IMHO. My favourite of the Angry Birds games is stills Seasons, because of the variety, number of levels and regular updates. I agree a bit that Rovio are repeating themselves, but I'm still enjoying playing these games, and more so than with Amazing Alex or Bad Piggies which I've not found to be half as fun.

Angry birds is awesome and people will never get bored of it ever!!!Smiley Happy
