After a mobile game becomes ridiculously popular, the next step is to produce a Star Wars version. That’s what Angry Birds did, after all — and that’s what Tiny Tower is doing now.
The official press release from Disney Interactive describes the new game Tiny Death Star, like this:
The Empire needs your help! In collaboration with LucasArts and Tiny Tower creators NimbleBit, Disney Mobile introduces Star Wars™: Tiny Death Star™, a new game for mobile devices. Live life on the dark side and join Emperor Palpatine and Darth Vader on a mission to attract Galactic bitizens, run intergalactic businesses, and build an all-new Death Star. Construct unique Star Wars themed locations to attract iconic characters and species to your space station in this 8-bit style game. Star Wars: Tiny Death Star will soon be available worldwide.
As much as the idea of Star Wars Angry Birds infuriates some of us beyond all compare, Tiny Death Star sounds like it’s got a lot of potential. For one thing, little 8-bit Star Wars characters are way cuter than those stupid triangle shaped birds. Secondly, there’s a lot more room for great in-references with each floor you manage. Hey, maybe one of them will be a cantina! We would like that a whole bunch.
- We’re also getting more Shakespeare’s Star Wars
- But seriously though… we’re so sick of Angry Birds
- Anyway, here’s Darth Vader playing bagpipes on a unicycle
