Dust off your lightsabers because it's time to go flinging once more in Angry Birds Star Wars II.
Inspired by the events of Star Wars: Episodes I to III, Angry Birds Star Wars II comes complete with a few new ways to play.
Fancy donning Darth Vader's mask and doing some bad in the world? Well, now you can join the Pork Side and live out your wildest evil (bird-related) fantasies.
You can even wield Darth Maul's double-ended lightsaber here, which is always enjoyable.
Rovio has expanded its roster of playable characters since Angry Birds Star Wars, so there are over 30 playable characters in this sequel, including Yoda, Mace Windu, Jango Fett, and annoying young kid Anakin.
In addition, you're able to whack Angry Bird Telepod figures onto a compatible device's camera to warp in a character of your choosing.
In our review of the game, we stated that "Angry Birds Star Wars II represents a mash-up of all the good and bad that Rovio has done with its hugely successful series. It's fun, it's frustrating, and it's dripping with the sort of merchandising opportunities that would make even George Lucas blush."
We then awarded it a 7/10.
If you're a completist, by the way, you might want to check out our collectible item guides for the Bird Side and the Pork Side. Or if you're getting a bit stuck, we've got a complete guide to the game up on the site, too.
