Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga storms onto iOS

The game for Episode I is free, but those who want the true "complete saga" will need to pay for it via in-app purchase.

Warner Bros.

Lego's marriage with Star Wars for years has set the average geek's heart aflutter. And now, they have something else to get excited about.

Warner Bros. on Thursday launched, in Apple's App Store, Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga. The game, which is designed for both iPhone and iPad, combines Legos with Star Wars to create a new way for players to interact with the famed franchise's environment.

Interestingly, the "Complete Saga" moniker doesn't necessarily tell the whole story. After downloading the free game, iOS users will find that they can play Episode I: The Phantom Menace for free. The complete saga, which includes Episodes II through VI, is available via in-app purchase. The Complete Saga in-app purchase costs $14.99.

Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga requires iOS 6 or later. The game is optimized for iPhone 5, according to Warner Bros., but works across the latest iPhones, iPads, and iPod Touch.
