Angry Birds Star Wars
has received its first major update, which adds a new bird, 20 fresh levels, and two bonus stages.
Those new levels take place on the remote ice planet of Hoth, and pit your band of rebel birds against Pigtroopers and AT-ATs.
Luckily, you've got backup. The Pink Bird has dressed up as Princess Leia, and she can use her gravitational field disruptor to dislodge bits of the stage, and tug them to the ground.Hoth to the touch
The update also adds two new bonus levels - a new Golden Droid, and a bonus level when you earn 385 stars in the campaign.
More levels are on the way - a further 20 Hoth-based levels are marked down as "coming soon" in the stage select menu. Plus, Rovio's sure to roll out some more stages based on the first three movies... at least.
This update is currently available on iPhone and iPad. The Android and Windows versions will get the new levels in due course.Empire Strikes Back
Haven't picked up this Star Wars
-themed puzzler yet? You should probably get on that. We called it "faithful to the source material, filled with content, imaginative, and fun" in our Gold Award review.
Oh, and don't worry: we'll update our complete guide to the game very soon. In about 12 parsecs, to be precise.
