We all had nightmares when Disney acquired the Star Wars IP – what sort of movies and games could we expect? However, the first game looks positively delightful. I think I may just have to get it now, partly because it’s free.
Free on iOS, Android, Windows Phone and Windows 8, Disney Mobile brings you Star Wars: Tiny Death Star. Essentially a reskinned Tiny Tower, you need to build up the Death Star, attracting different species and businesses.
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! With that hard-earned money, fund the Empire’s evil schemes to defeat the Rebels and conquer the galaxy once and for all!
You can even expect rebel break-ins from that pesky Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia. Be sure to check your garbage chutes to keep them at bay.
Seriously, I think this is far too cute. I love the idea of playing at running the Death Star – I can finally live out the Eddie Izzard fantasy and have a canteen on the Death Star. I may just need to kill you with a tray.
