9. Angry Birds Star Wars (2012)
‘Angry Birds Star Wars’ is a hilarious game that combines the ‘Star Wars’ universe with the gameplay format of the ‘Angry Bird’ games. Tell me what you will but there is something insanely comical about launching the birds in space now that they are themed on ‘Star Wars’. Rovio has made some critical changes to the looks of the birds as well in order to portray the characters from the universe. In addition, the mighty eagle has also been replaced with the Millennium Falcon and quite frankly, it is the best part about this game.
The Gameplay is similar to other ‘Angry Birds’ games with the physics borrowed from ‘Angry Birds’ space. Other than that, everything else remains the same. You are able to play through levels that thematically represent some of the most iconic locations of the franchise. You start in Tatooine and make your way through places like the Hoth and Cloud City, eventually landing in Death Star 2. It is currently available on every modern device imaginable, so we highly recommend that you head on over to your preferred playstore and try it out for yourself.
8. Super Star Wars (1992)
