Rovio Entertainment has released the first update to its Angry Birds Star Wars spinoff delivering additional levels, Princess Leia as the Pink Bird, and more.
According to the plot, the Rebellion is going through some rough times as a group of freedom fighters – evading the dreaded Imperial Starfleet – has set camp on Hoth, a the remote ice world.
“Unfortunately the evil Darth Vader discovers their hideout, and the desperate Rebel birds must escape the AT-ATs and Pigtroopers hot on their trail. But the Rebels have an ace up their sleeve with the debut of PRINCESS LEIA!” says Rovio.
Players thus have a new mission scattered across 20 brand new levels on the ice world of Hoth. The Pink Bird is Princess Leia who has an “attractive” power, says Rovio. Hmm, I wonder what they mean by that.
To succeed in this mission, gamers must aim for the weak spot to destroy AT-ATs. New bonus levels are also included. As usual, Rovio encourages fans to stay tuned as more levels are on their way.
Angry Birds Star Wars is compatible with all iDevice models that support iOS 4.3. It’s also iPhone 5-optimized.
