It's still Angry Birds

Even with the "Star Wars" theme, you'll still have to fling birds at the structures, and try to come up with a way that uses the least amount of birds possible.

Buy characters

You can earn them on your own, but you also have the option to buy stacks of single characters you can swap in to help you pass more difficult levels.
