Apple is celebrating the fifth anniversary of the App store this week and to celebrate the momentous occasion some of the most popular apps on the App Store have gone free for a week. Amongst the large library of apps, Rovio’s popular Angry Birds Star Wars is also available for free for the iPad and the iPhone.
The game is available for Rs 55 on the iPhone and Rs 170 on the iPad. It’s main USP is that it blends traditional Angry Birds gameplay mechanics in an environment that has the backdrop of the original Star Wars trilogy and even the birds take form of famous characters like Luke Skywalker and Chewbacca in the game.
All characters in the game have their unique skill set on the basis of the original Star Wars character. For instance, Han Solo uses a blaster pistol, while Luke Skywalker wields a blue lightsabre.
