Angry Birds Star Wars is a video game that is part of the Angry Birds series. It serves as an adaptation of the original trilogy of the Star Wars series. It was developed by Rovio Entertainment and LucasArts, and published by the former in November 2012. A prequel, Angry Birds Star Wars II, would be released in October 2013.
Having finished the construction of the Death Star, Darth Vader kidnaps Princess Leia and forces her to tell him the location of "The Egg", an object that Vader wants to find to be promoted to Emperor. Leia simply refuses, and Vader, in response, leaves her in a room with R2-D2, unaware that the robot had The Egg in him. Leia installs the plans of the Death Star in R2-D2's memory, and the robot uses an escape pod to escape to Tatooine, with his friend C-3PO. There, the robots are found by some Jawa Birds, who put them in sale hoping to get some money.
In the meantime, Luke Skywalker goes to buy some supplies for his farm, only to come across the Jawa Birds, who offer him R2-D2 and C-3PO. Luke decides to buy them and the Jawa Birds leave satisfied. The robots tell Luke about the Death Star and Leia captive. Luke then makes his way through Tatooine, coming across some Tusken Raiders, who manage to knock him down. Fortunately however, Obi Wan Kenobi comes in and saves him. The duo then goes to a cantina, where they meet Han Solo and Chewbacca. Then, Greedork appears after being sent by Jabba the Hutt to hunt down the heroes. However, Han spots him and kills him. The group then uses the Mighty Falcon to leave Tatooine and go to space. There, they track the location of the Death Star and go to it. They would also be supported by the Blue Squadron.
After going aboard the Death Star, the group has a battle against Darth Vader, which gives the villain more power of the Force. The heroes later have another battle against Vader, with this driving his TIE fighter. Despite the odds though, the group defeats Darth Vader and manages to destroy the main reactor of the Death Star, which triggers a chain reaction that causes it to explode.
Later, the Bird Rebels go to Hoth and build a secret headquarters there, the Echo Base. Learning about the base, Darth Vader and his troops go to Hoth and start a battle against the Rebels there. With no other option but to escape, the heroes end up in one of the asteroids of the planet. Ending up in a cave full of hostile Mynhogs, the group makes their way, eventually defeating the Giant Mynhog and leaving.
Some time after these events, the Bird Rebels go to Cloud City, a floating city on planet Gaspin, to visit Han Solo's old friend, Lando Birdissian. However, the group is unaware that Darth Vader knew about this and forced Lando to give him all the details about the Rebels' hostage. Later, Darth Vader and Boba Fett manage to kidnap Solo and freeze him in carbonite. Regretting having aided Vader, Lando teams up with the Rebels to take down the villain. Eventually, Luke has a duel against Darth Vader, who admits to him that he is his father. Despite the fact that he was fighting against his own father leaves him dumbfounded, Luke still manages to defeat him. The Bird Rebels later leave.
Time later, Luke and R2-D2 use the former's X-wing Birdfighter ship to travel to Dagobah so that Yoda can train Luke. Accidentally landing on Dragonsnake Bog, which causes the ship to sink in the water, the two meet Yoda, who trains Luke to be a Jedi Master. Luke and R2-D2 would later leave Dagobah. In the meantime, on Tatooine, Leia frees Han from the carbonite he was trapped in, only for the two to be kidnapped by Jabba the Hutt. However, Luke comes in and saves his friends. The three heroes later leave after choking Jabba to death. On a moon of planet Endor, the Bird Rebels meet the Ewok Birds and destroy one of Darth Vader's bases.
Meanwhile, in space, Vader and his minions have finished the building of the Death Star 2, which is powerful enough to pulverize entire battle ships instantly. However, the Bird Rebels and Lando manage to weaken the defense systems of the ship, thus making them able to get aboard it. There, the Bird Rebels have a final showdown against Darth Vader and his master, Emperor Palpatine. However, Vader has a sudden change of heart and strikes down Palpatine, though this leaves him very injured. A grieved Luke then opens Vader's armor, allowing him to see his face for the first time. However, the heroes are later forced to leave the Death Star 2 after a chain reaction was triggered, causing it to explode. The Bird Rebels later celebrate their victory with C-3PO, R2-D2 and some Ewok Birds as Obi Wan, Vader, and Yoda, as Jedi spirits, watch them.
Angry Birds Star Wars is a puzzle video game with similar gameplay to that from previous Angry Birds games. In the game, the player takes control of a limited group of birds, who can be launched anywhere by the use of a slingshot. All levels have a series of enemies the player must take down by the use of their characters. These enemies normally appear sheltered inside of structures made of wood, glass, and/or metal, in addition of some additional objects, such as chains and TNT. If the player fails to kill all the enemies in the levels, they will get a Level Failed screen, encouraging them to try again. If they manage to do so however, they will win and pass to the next level. Upon completing each level, the player will receive one, two, or three stars depending on the score received.
