[New Game] Star Wars: Tiny Death Star Hits The Play Store, But Only In Australia For Now

If you love Star Wars, pixelated graphics, and frantic management gaming, then today is your day. Well, it is if you live in Australia (where technically tomorrow is your day). Disney, LucasArts, and NimbleBit have teamed up to deliver Tiny Death Star to the Play Store, but at the moment it looks like it's only available down under. The game is a free download for Aussies.

[New Game] Angry Birds Star Wars II Hits The Play Store With Prequel-Based Characters And Telepod Toy Integration

Yes, Angry Birds is back again. This time the sequel to the surprisingly fun Angry Birds Star Wars has dropped out of Hyperspace right in the middle of the Play Store. Angry Birds Star Wars II is based on the prequel films – you know, the ones that your inner child refuses to acknowledge.

There are over 30 playable characters in Angry Birds Star Wars II. Everyone from Mace Windu to Queen Amidala (for some reason) is included in the game this time.

[New Game] Star Wars Force Collection Available Now, Because There Aren't Enough Card Games In The Play Store Already

Hey kids, do you remember the awesome Star Wars collectible trading cards from Topps? Of course you don't, and neither do I, because the shameless whoring of the brand has burned away whatever good memories of Star Wars I ever possessed. Here's Konami's attempt to wring a few more bucks out of science fiction's most used-up intellectual property with an almost certainly crappy free-to-play battle card game.

If you haven't seen this particular style of game before, it goes something like this: you collect a bunch of cards which have RPG-style defense and attack attributes.

Rovio Releases Series Of Trailers Revealing 4 New Characters From The Upcoming Angry Birds Star Wars II

In a way, Angry Birds and Star Wars are a match made in heaven. Both properties are immensely popular, and neither is a stranger to merchandising. You're as likely to stumble across either of them on a lunch box or in a bin of stuffed animals as you are to see them in their native formats. That's why the concept of Angry Birds Star Wars is neither surprising nor difficult to grasp.

[New Game] LEGO Star Wars: The Yoda Chronicles Touches Down On The Play Store, Compatible With Almost Nothing

Surprisingly, the licensed LEGO Star Wars PC and console games (and most of the subsequent Indiana Jones/Batman/Harry Potter/et cetera games) turned out to be pretty good. They're tight, enjoyable adventure games with interesting construction mechanics, and humor suitable to both kids and adults. Though The LEGO Group has released more than a dozen Android titles already, their first tie-in game is LEGO Star Wars: The Yoda Chronicles, available now as a free download.

Battle Orb Is A Great-Looking Game With A Neat Concept And An Infuriating Control Scheme

There are a few things that will make me love a game. Good graphics, robots, explosions and an easy-to-use interface. Battle Orb delivers on at least three of these fronts with one of the coolest ideas for a game I've seen. Remember the droidekas from the Star Wars prequels? What's that? You've blocked them from your memory? Well, they were robots that could fold up into balls and roll around a ship's hallways.

Google Adds Over 400 Dark Horse Comics To Play Books, Including Star Wars, Serenity, And Buffy

Android devices are already pretty awesome comic readers. There's very little I love in the world more than watching Deadpool hack and slash everything in the universe up on the ultra-high resolution display of my Nexus 10. Though, if anything is gonna give the merc with a mouth a run for his ill-gotten money, it may just be the collective comic anthologies of properties like Star Wars, Hellboy, Serenity, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and more.

If you're the kind of fan that absolutely must have a Star Wars version of everything in your life, then grab your officially licensed Ahsoka Tano phone case and head for the Play Store. Zen Studios, makers of the well-received Zen Pinball HD, have released their Star Wars-themed pinball app, creatively titled Star Wars Pinball. It's a reasonable $1.99, but unfortunately restricted to Android 4.0 devices and above, and thus tragically off-limits to the Special Edition R2-DROID2.
