Angry Birds Star Wars

The newest Angry Birds game was released today. Anyone else get it? I love it just for the visual SW aspects, but the new SW-related abilities are icing on the cake.

I just found out by accident, that you can actually deflect laser blasts with the lightsaber to hit stuff otherwise completely out of reach.

Speaking of which, I was having a hard time get the first Golden Droid. I just looked it up on Youtube, and apparently you can actually deflect lasers with Obi-Wan's force push, too. You can also make use of a pig's laser blasts if you cause him to tip over or fly through the air.

I also like how the game makes use of both the traditional environment and and the AB Space type environment.

Oh, and here's the cinematic trailer. It's rather amusing:

Update came out today, opening up the Hoth section, with 20 levels and introducing the Leia bird.

Is anyone actually reading this, BTW?

I am. I purchased it like 10 days ago and I'm this close at getting the 120 stars of Tatooine. Really addictive.

Re: Angry Birds Star Wars

I haven't tried this out yet. I've never really cared for Angry Birds but I did like the space one. Someone at work was testing out a MHL cable and played a level on one of the TVs. I thought it was just skined but when a ship flew by bombing the pigs, I thought I should try this.
