We have been playing Angry Birds Stars since its release on last Thursday and have a thought.
Angry Birds Star Wars overall game experience, while fun, unique and entertaining will extract more money from you than previous versions of Angry Birds. We paid $0.99 for which gave us access to two worlds, Tatooine and the Death Star. You have to pay anywhere from $1.99 to $19.99 to access more sections of Angry Birds Star Wars.
Rovio partnered with Lucas Films to bring this game to market. When these kind of partnerships happen money exchanges hands. Generally company A, in this case Rovio, pays company B, Lucas Films for the rights to Star Wars Franchise. Rovio may have paid Lucas Films an upfront licensing fee or they may simply share a percentage of the revenue or a combination of both. Either way Rovio operates as a for profit business so they are going to generate as must revenue and profit as possible.
Angry Birds Star Wars does offer unique game play. For you example can use Luke’s light saber to deflect the Storm Troopers laser blasts into objects to inflict damage. This can prove to be difficult when you send Luke flying through the air with the laser blasts coming at you to destroy the special golden eggs. We wonder if anyone will attempt to clone this game mechanic.
Use the force Bird. Use the force. But don’t forget your light saber.
Two mega franchises of the last forty years, Lucas Films and Rovio have joined forces to release Angry Birds Star Wars, which tells the iconic story of space rebellion using Rovio’s birds & pigs and some physics. (more…)
