As per the norm with Rovio the gone all puntastic with their explanation of the game, with such well thought out gems like
“JOIN THE PORK SIDE!”
But what does interest me is the range of new characters, you can play as the pigs, Darth Maul, Darth Vader, General Grievous, Yoda, pod-racing Anakin, Mace Windu, Jango Fett and many more!
What doesn’t excite me is something called “TELEPODS” which are plastic characters you place over the devices camera and somehow you can play the game differently having paid extra for these pieces. No doubt these won’t be cheap.
Here are some screenshots from the game, believe it or not I am actually going to install this because I don’t think I’ve played enough levels of Angry Birds.
Rovio have made this game trailer to show you the highlights of the game.
