Angry Birds Star Wars
Luke appears as the main protagonist in Angry Birds Star Wars. While buying supplies for his farm on Tatooine, Luke bought R2-D2 and C-3PO from some Jawa Birds. The robots told him that his sister, Princess Leia, was kidnapped by Darth Vader, and held captive aboard the Death Star. Luke then made his way through Tatooine, defeating the hordes of Tusken Raiders attacking him. However, he was later knocked down by some Tusken Raiders. Fortunately, Obi Wan Kenobi came in and saved him. The duo then went to a cantina, where they met Han Solo and Chewbacca. The group then used the Mighty Millenium Falcon to go to outer space. There, they tracked the location of the Death Star and headed straight to it. The heroes were also aided by the Blue Squadron. Aboard the space station, the heroic group saved Leia and then destroyed the Death Star's main reactor, causing a chain reaction that destroyed the whole station.
Some time later, Luke and his allies would aid in the battle against Darth Vader on Hoth. They would later go to the asteroid field of the planet, having a battle against some Mynhogs and later escaping. The group later went to Cloud City to visit Han's friend, Lando Birdissian, only to discover that Darth Vader and his minions were after them. After a battle against Vader, Han was frozen in carbonite. Luke later had a battle against Darth Vader, who confessed him that he was his father, leaving Luke dumbfounded. Luke would still win the battle however, and would later go to Dagobah to get some training from Yoda. After this, Luke became a Jedi, and was granted the green lightsaber.
A short time later, Luke would go back to Tatooine to save Leia and Han from Jabba the Hutt. On the Moon of Endor, he and his allies also destroyed one of Darth Vader's bases, and managed to track the location of the new Death Star 2. The group managed to weaken the defenses of the station, allowing them to get aboard of it. There, Luke had a battle against Darth Vader and Emperor Palpatine. In the battle, Vader suddenly had a change of heart and defeated Palpatine for good, though this left him severaly injured. Luke then took Vader's armor out, allowing him to see his face for the first time. However, he and his allies escaped the Death Star 2 after a chain reaction that had occured started to destroy it. Luke and his friends then celebrated the Pork Side's permanent defeat.
In gameplay, Luke is first playable in level 1-1 of Tatooine. While initially not having any abilities, when the player gets to 1-8, Luke will be able to use his lightsaber to damage enemies. When the player launches Luke and taps anywhere onto the screen, he will swing his lightsaber 180 grades once, destroying objects and killing the enemies it touches. Luke will also be able to use this ability when he is hit, though the player will only have one second to use it. When completing all levels of Path of the Jedi, Luke will receive another ability upgrade, this time replacing his lightsaber with a green, longer one. Not only will Luke's lightsaber be much stronger, but it will also have a larger attack radius.
