It’s May 4th, and you know what that means — it’s Star Wars day! With the most recent Star Wars convention long packed up and a film on the way later this year, there hasn’t been a better time to be a Star Wars fan this generation.
But if trailers and panels and all sorts of promotional happenings isn’t whetting your appetite as we await the first film in a new trilogy, perhaps some games will. We’ve put together a quick list of the 5 best Star Wars games for Android to play as you celebrate your fandom on this glorious day. Check them out and go have some fun!
5. Angry Birds: Star Wars
It’s Angry Birds as you know and love, except the birds and pigs are all Star Wars characters and they continue their battle in galactic space. Awesome Force powers can be dished out to help you achieve your goal of knocking down the pigs’ defenses, too.
4. Star Wars Force Collection
This collectible card game allows you to stack up on companions to help take out the evil Empire. Use support cards to upgrade characters such as Yoda, R2D2 and Chewbacca. Some cards are more rare than others, and you can trade them with your friends to help complete your collection. You can also fight against your friends to see whose team and strategy is the most sound.
3. Star Wars Rebels: Missions
You’re a rebel looking to do your part to dismantle the Empire. You play the role of Ezra Bridger as he goes from camp to camp trying to destroy as much of their operations as possible. You’ll be able to build a base that gives you boosts and bonuses, and you’ll also have the chance to drive an AT-MP (yes, the awesome giant robots the Empire uses to bring about destruction) to take out a mass legion of Stormtroopers in one go.
2. All the LEGO Star Wars games
Because LEGO + Star Wars = awesome. There are two mobile-specific games to sink your teeth into, both of which follow the chronicles of Yoda. The original lets you quest with either Yoda or Count Dooku, while the sequel features Yoda and the master manipulator known as Darth Vader.
The other collection of LEGO Star Wars games — the ones that originally launched on console — was recently reworked for a mobile launch. It’s available for $6.99 and lets you take on dozens of characters (and features over 100 in total) as you battle through the events of all 6 Star Wars films. Not a bad deal at all.
1. Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic
This is probably the best Star Wars experience you’re going to get on mobile. It’s a classic RPG that got its start on PC and Console, and the full game is available to play anywhere you can haul a smartphone or tablet. You play as a Jedi who is stuck in a conflict between the Republic and the dark side of the Sith lord.
The irony? The actual conflict is internal: will you stick to your guns in protecting the Republic and living up to the honorable Jedi code, or will you fall victim to the benefits of being part of the world’s problem? That’s something only you can decide after hours of gameplay for just $2.99.
There are a good deal more Star Wars related or themed games that are worth your time that you should definitely check out.
- Tiny Death Star — A Star Wars-themed Tiny Towers game
- Star Wars Pinball 3 — Pinball, with Star Wars backdrops and sound effects
- Star Wars: Commander — Clash of Clans meets awesome LucasArts goodness
- Star Wars: Galactic Defense — A Star Wars tower defense game
Other stuff to get into
Don’t forget that Google Play also now has all 6 Star Wars films available for digital viewing. At $20 each — or $90 for the lot — it’s not a cheap route for filling your hunger for Star Wars, but if you don’t already have a physical collection and don’t fancy Blu-Ray and DVD discs then it’s not a bad route to go at all. Let us know what you’ll be doing to celebrate Star Wars day!
