The official Star Wars website has announced a new mobile game “not fit for the weak-minded;” Star Wars: Heroes Path is aimed at reinventing Star Wars: A New Hope as a series of challenging strategy puzzles.
“While space battles and lightsaber duels decided the fate of the galaxy in the film, the new mobile app strategy game, Star Wars: Heroes Path, reimagines the classic movie and challenges players to rely on their cerebral abilities and connection with the Force to topple the Empire.”
Players will be able to travel from Tatooine to the Death Star as Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Princess Leia, Chewbacca, and Obi Wan Kenobi. The unique abilities of each character will aid the player in defeating enemies and overcoming traps.
Its features include:
- An exciting interactive reimagining of Star Wars: A New Hope through six challenging puzzle environments
- Dozens of themed levels with multiple obstacles to progress through
- Special abilities and powers tied to each character, including decoy holograms, lightsabers, blasters, and more!
- Fan-favorite sidekicks to help every hero complete their missions including R2-D2, Chewbacca, and more!
Take a peek at the look of the game below.
Star Wars: Heroes Path is the latest in a series of mobile games, including Topps’ Star Wars Card Trader app and Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes. It is likely just another step by Disney and Lucasfilm to expand the franchise out onto current and popular media platforms, such as mobile devices.
I think creating a strategy game after two digital trading card games is a smart move. Not everyone is interested trading cards, but a lot of people enjoy strategy games that make them think, provide a challenge. I might even download this Heroes Path, just to see what the levels of fun and difficulty are like.
You can download Star Wars: Heroes Path on the iTunes App Store today for $4.99!
