Lego Star Wars Battle Orders is now available for FREE in iTunes. This iOS app is very simplistic and fun. After choosing to fight on the light-side or dark-side you’ll use your finger to swipe what planet your ships should build a base on. Stand ready because opposing forces will be ready to fight for the right to build that base.
The trademark Lego looks are there along with the wonderful Star Wars look and feel, not to mention the sound effects and John Williams music. What was lacking was in the initial directions. It will take some time to get used to how it all works and what the different icons represent. As the levels grow in difficulty you will be able to earn some pretty cool power-ups so be ready to experiment when new symbols appear.
Overall this is a really entertaining app for the casual gamer on-the-go. Download it today. It’s free so what have you got to loose?
