Recent Articles: Angry Birds Star Wars
Welcome to Warp Zoned’s second annual Golden Pixel Awards. It was definitely a good year for gaming. With the fight over Mass Effect 3‘s ending, the resurrection of Sleeping Dogs, and the launch of the Wii U, we were treated to 12 months of interesting stories.
So sit back and relax as we reward the best (and worst) games of 2012 with a series of accolades based on their rather unique accomplishments.
The Apocalypse List
The bombs have fallen, the economy has collapsed, food is scarce, the zombie hordes are scratching at your door, and you’ve boarded yourself up in a bunker that’ll stand for a hundred years. What better way to spend your time in “The Vault” than by playing Warp Zoned’s favorite games from 2012? It doesn’t matter if you call it a “Top Ten List” or “Our Favorites From 2012,” but these are the games we plan to keep playing even if there was no game industry to keep making games. (more…)
Angry Birds Star Wars comes on the heels of the less-than-stellar puzzle-solving fiasco that was Bad Piggies, and is the next game in the Angry Birds Series (which also includes Angry Birds, Angry Birds Space, Angry Birds Seasons, Angry Birds Rio, Angry Birds Magic) from Rovio Entertainment. After that Bad Piggies episode, not only do we have our slingshot back, but we have a Lightsaber, too! How is that not amazing? (more…)
Earlier today, I was alerted to the fact that Rovio has released the “Hoth” update to Angry Birds Star Wars. And of course, I immediately updated the game and started playing. I’ve had things to do today (hey, naps are important, plus if I remember correctly from Daria, TV counts as a place to be), but I’ve peppered in as much playtime as I could and I’m almost done with all the levels.
The first update for ABSW is based on Episode V, The Empire Strikes Back and takes place on the ice planet of Hoth. Rovio says “[F]ans must lead the desperate Rebel birds to safety as they’re pursued by AT-ATs and Pigtroopers. Luckily the Rebels have an ace up their sleeve.” Yup, if you’ve been playing and noticed one of the characters missing from the lineup thus far, you’ll be happy to see that Princess Leia has made her debut (as the pink bird) and has an interesting (and mostly helpful) power.
Check out the trailer to see the Hoth adventure in action and if you’ve already purchased Angry Birds Star Wars, get the free update for iOS with 20 levels, and start it. Now! It’s pretty fun.
The Hoth update is coming soon to Android, Mac, and PC.
Rovio has released two additional gameplay trailers for Angry Birds Star Wars featuring everyone’s favorite droids and everyone’s favorite smugglers.
C-3PO is able to use his power of klutziness as he shatters into several pieces after colliding with the Pig Empire. R2-D2, naturally, is on top of things and pulls out his zapper arm to explode barriers. When Chewbacca gets his turn, he just turns on his Wookiee rage and powers through everything with his immense size and strength. Let the Wookiee win indeed. Finally, Han Solo perfers to have a good blaster by his side and he puts it to good use.
Both trailers can be found after the break and Angry Birds Star Wars will be available to download on November 8. (more…)
What do you get when you stuff a bird into a slingshot and give him a Lightsaber? Video game magic, that’s what.
Check out the first gameplay trailer for Angry Birds Star Wars above and watch as Bird Luke Skywalker uses his Lightsaber to slice through a bunch of Pig Stormtroopers on Tatooine. Bird Princess Leia is also on hand to lend a Force Push to a Pig AT-AT on Hoth.
Angry Birds Star Wars will be available to download for the iOS, Android, and PC on November 8.
As expected, the Lucasfilm/Rovio alliance has produced a series of Star Wars-themed Angry Birds toys which will be available in stores soon. Over the next few weeks we can expect to see an action figure line, a series of plush toys, an AT-AT Attack Battle board game, and a Jenga Death Star board game.
Do you have a bad feeling about this? You shouldn’t, because…
In a pleasant surprise, Angry Birds Star Wars is in development for iOS and Android platforms and will be available on November 8. The game will feature birdy versions of Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Princess Leia, and Chewbacca along with piggy versions of Darth Vader and his Stormtroopers. And hopefully the slingshot Lightsaber in the teaser trailer above will make an appearance too.
