Cinema has always been a big part of our lives. There are some movies that come and go without anyone’s notice, and there are a few that leave an everlasting impact on our lives. Star Wars is one such franchise, originally started in 1977 by George Lucas. Today, the franchise has given us a total of eight Star Wars films and a handful of TV films, keeping the lineup alive even today, over 40+ years since the brave concept was first attempted by Lucas. Today, we are seeing several games and comics based on Star Wars, and we’re going to discuss a few such games that are available for Android right now. If you’re a Star Wars fan, it’s likely that you would have come across a few of these titles.
If you haven’t, however, make sure you have a closer look at the games we mention on this list. These games here are free, but users will be required to make in-app purchases to progress further within the game. Bear in mind that all these games are incredibly addictive, so you might find it difficult to play any other game available out there.
5 best Star Wars games for Android
This isn’t your run of the mill roleplaying game as it comes with a great set of features to keep you hooked. You get to collect and master a total of 120 heroes from across all Star Wars movies and TV films, giving you a lot to play with. You can power up your characters and take them to battle with villains and bosses. Beating them will give you significant boosts to your character while there are some other perks on board as well. You get to choose from your favorite light and dark side heroes here, so the choices are practically endless.
Once you’ve progressed far enough in the game, you will also be able to have starship battles in space, which is sure to give you a few tense moments. What makes the ship battles more satisfying is the inclusion of rewards exclusively for these battles, helping you power up your characters and do a whole lot more. Needless to say, the game remains one of the favorites among Star Wars fans. If there’s one gripe I have with this game, it’s that users have to make in-app purchases to progress more quickly. It must be noted that those who pay to play the game also have a better chance of making it till the end compared to those who use the free version. The game is compatible with devices running Android 4.1 and above. There are no ads here, which is commendable.
This is yet another popular Star Wars game, set entirely in the LEGO universe. Characters are tiny here, so you won’t get the lifelike experience with this, however, the gameplay surely does take the cake for us. You can play as characters from the film, including Rey, Finn, Poe Dameron, Han Solo, and BB-8, as well as Kylo Ren and General Hux, so there’s no dearth of exciting and new characters here. The developers mention that there are some previously unknown story lines available here, offering you a lot more content to play around with.
There are multiple fights here to choose from, with spaceship dogfights being one of my personal favorites. It’s certainly different compared to the other Star Wars games available out there, but that’s not say it’s not immensely satisfying. If you’ve been a collector of LEGO, this game will certainly have a special place in your hearts. Be sure to check out the game from the Google Play Store. It’s a free download, but there are in-app purchases on board to help you progress further in your gameplay. There are no ads here. The game is compatible with devices running Android 4.2 and up.
Who doesn’t know about Angry Birds? The popular bird slinging game from Rovio has seen a lot of upgrades over the past few years, including a dedicated Star Wars version. Well, this is the second iteration of that game and it packs a bundle of attractive new features for fans to check out. This particular series is based on the Star Wars movie prequels, which will offer a variety of characters that fans are very familiar with. Joining the pork side (like the dark side) will give you access to players like Darth Maul, Emperor Palpatine and much more.
There are more than 30 playable characters here, so there is never going to be a dull moment with this game. It also supports Telepods, which are purchasable toys that can interact with the game when you simply place it next to your smartphone or tablet during gameplay. Rovio has made sure that this game is incredibly addictive, as you will soon find. The gameplay, however, remains pretty much unchanged from other Angry Birds games. The game will work on devices with Android 4.1 and up. This version is a free download, although there are plenty of ads. In-app purchases are also available to help you get rid of the ads and unlock some exclusive features.
This takes a whole different direction compared to the games we spoke about above. It’s offers you the unique ability to play against real players across the world. This is a true multiplayer game, which means you will require a steady internet connection to play it. You can select your best squad and put them into battles to increase your effectiveness and score some valuable points in the process. You can only select up to 2 players on your team, though, which is a good thing since it doesn’t crowd your screen too much. I personally would have preferred three, however. The game is free to download and naturally comes with in-app purchases. There are no ads here.
This game is pretty similar to Clash of Clans in terms of gameplay. It doesn’t have a one on one interface, meaning that your goal here is basically to command your troops into battle and make sure you get the most out of them. It’s different from some of the other games mentioned on this list, but it’s surely very interesting. You can complete story based missions from the movies, which is sure to bring back some nostalgia. While the graphics is nothing to write home about, it’s the gameplay here that wins our hearts. You will find that this is not a game where you can casually play it once a week. It requires the user’s constant attention to defend their base against enemy attacks. Be sure to check out Star Wars Commander from the Play Store. It’s free to download, and comes with in-app purchases on board. There are some ads here, which might get a little irritating for the users. You will need to be on a device running Android 4.2 to play this game.
