May the Fourth has already come and gone, but if you're a fellow Star Wars fan, is there ever really a bad time to indulge in games paying homage to that galaxy far, far away? That's right: the correct answer is no! The good news is there are offerings aplenty to satiate your Star Wars game cravings right at your fingertips. Whether you're into pinball and pew-pew or epic quests and resource management, we promise you'll find something to suit your needs in this rundown of the best Star Wars games the App Store has to offer.
What's the fastest way to get the space bucks needed to get your giant galactic battlestation fully operational so you can terrorize the galaxy? Opening up a snack shop and peddling womp rat stew, apparently. Tiny Death Star leans heavily on its adorable pixel art presentation and silly personality to suck you in, as the cutesy Star Wars-skinned take on Tiny Tower reimagines the Death Star as a strip mall of sorts. And keeping it running smoothly is fun — assuming you don't expect any action, explosions, or space battles.
Each week, we highlight a selection of the most interesting, exciting, and unique new iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch titles released on the App Store. Several long-awaited, high-profile games top the rundown this week, notably Star Wars: Tiny Death Star and the excellent Rayman Fiesta Run, as well as Sid Meier’s Ace Patrol: Pacific Skies and LEGO The Lord of the Rings. But as usual, we’ve got a few intriguing lesser-known games to potentially pique your interest.
