On this May the 4th we’re going to go through the top 5 best Star Wars games available to play on your mobile phones right now. These are our top 5 favourite games to play on mobile, so if we’ve missed a Star Wars game you love, do let us know and we’ll check it out!
Without further ado, here are our favourite Star Wars games for mobile:
Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes
Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes is a turn-based fast-paced RPG for Android and iOS. It’s got a wide cast of characters with the option to be able to play as both dark and light side characters, which is a fresh change from most other Star Wars games where you’re mostly forced to play as the rebels or in some rare cases as the Empire.
The game uses a squad based system where you build a squad consisting of up to 5 members. You can have your favourite characters from the universe in your squad and level them up and upgrade them as you progress through the game. You have the option to autoplay combat or manually use abilities yourself. The game came out back in 2015 and still going pretty strong. It receives updates regularly and there are many special events that take place every now then for players to pick up exclusive stuff.
Star Wars: Puzzle Droids
Star Wars: Puzzle Droids is a match-three game. Much like the popular candy-crush. However, Puzzle Droids is not an easy game at all. In fact, if you had the misconception that match-three games were easy, you should probably give that thought up. There’s a lot of forethought involved. There are a limited number of moves available in every round, and you have to think at least two or three moves ahead.
The game revolves around the memories of our favourite droids, BB8 and R2D2. As you unlock memories you get to experience new and untold stories featuring iconic characters from the Star Wars Universe. You also get to visit iconic locations from the Star Wars Universe. The game’s campaign aligns with the movie’s cannon storyline and like Galaxy of Heroes, Puzzle Droids constantly receives new updates and has special events with limited time character unlocks.
Star Wars: Force Arena
Star Wars: Force Arena is like a combination of the popular card game Clash Royale with MOBA elements from games like Vainglory. There’s also tower defence elements in the game. While there’s a lot going on in Force Arena on the surface, deep down it’s a collecting card game. Your strength is entirely dependant on your cards and how much you’ve upgraded them. While you can earn everything necessary to upgrade yourself in the game, it can become quite the grind which is why the game can come off as pay-to-win, especially considering it’s PvP game.
There are a wide selection of iconic characters to select from, including characters from the newer movies. You can team up with friends on take on two other opponents in PvP matches. Force Awakens also receives regular updates and frequently has updates where you can grab exclusive rewards.
Star Wars: KoTOR
Knights of the Old Republic is in our opinion one of the best RPGs of all time with an amazing story to tell featuring amazing characters. The fact that you can now play it in all its glory on our mobile phones still is a bit of a surprise to us. Even though the lore is no longer considered canon, but falls under Star Wars Legends lore, the game is definitely worth playing, at least once. This is not a game you should miss out on, and be prepared for one of the best plot-twists in gaming history when you do give it a try.
Angry Birds Star Wars II
We don’t really need to tell you how Angry Birds works, but Angry Birds Star Wars II is worth a mention because it’s a very unique twist to the Angry Bird games we’re so familiar with. If the name didn’t give it away, the whole game is Star Wars themed, so expect to see jedi birds and sith pigs. The powers are also Star Wars themed and the whole approach is a bit different from the usual as the game is taking in place in space. As opposed to well, wherever Angry Birds games usually take place.
