The Good Angry Birds Star Wars does just enough with new worlds and new "Star Wars"-themed birds to add variation to an already great game mechanic.

The Bad The app is not universal to both phones and tablets so you'll need to purchase it twice if you want to use the game on both.

The Bottom Line With new birds, new powers, and a ton of new levels to explore in the "Star Wars" universe, Angry Birds Star Wars is a worthy purchase, even if you've played all the previous games.

Angry Birds Star Wars (iOS - regular |HD or Android - regular |HD) is finally here, and it's got all the slingshot bird destruction you already love, paired with the "Star Wars" characters and weapons you remember from the movies.

While in gameplay it's similar to earlier Angry Birds games, new weapons and Jedi-like abilities add enough new elements to the action to make the new game well worth your money.

Just as in earlier Angry Birds games, you're presented with a series of levels where you need to destroy all the pigs. But these Imperial Pigtroopers have new tricks up their sleeves, including blasters you'll need to avoid.
