Top 8 Star Wars Games iPhone

The world is still gripped by Star Wars fever, with The Force Awakens set to hit theaters around the globe over the festive period. As a result, interest in apps and games for the iPhone is bound to be higher than it was a couple of years ago. But what are the best Star Wars games currently available for the iPhone? Fortunately, there are quite a few to choose from on the App Store at present, including those that are quite simple and also those that are quite complicated such as LEGO Star Wars and BioWare’s legendary Knights of the Old Republic RPG. Historically, Star Wars games on consoles in the past haven’t been the best, and I’d say that there are currently only a couple of games that really do the franchise justice in video game format. Check out some of our favorite iOS Star Wars games below, and then feel free to tell us some of your favorites in the comments section below!

8. Star Wars: Galactic Defense (Free)

I feel the need to at least drop in a passing mention of Star Wars: Galactic Defense, since I did put a few hours into it and think it works well as a typical tower defence game. In fact, if there’s anything that does let this game down it’s that developer DeNA really didn’t do a whole lot to turn this into a SW game rather than take an existing game engine and add a SW theme on top. Still, it’s fun to play and more importantly free to play! – Download from iTunes

7. Star Wars Rebels: Recon Missions (Free)

If you’ve not seen the Star Wars Rebels TV show yet, I’d recommend checking it out at the earliest possible moment! It’s a fun enough adventure game, but limited in many ways. It’s almost as though they took an existing game engine and applied certain things to it in order to rush out a game to represent the Rebels TV series. It’s a lot like Temple Run in a way, which kind of fits the TV show down to the ground and was probably the best game format they could have chosen. You learn how to shoot and most importantly how to run and avoid the bad guys, so it has a fairly easy learning curve and even younger players shouldn’t have any trouble picking this one up. The first four levels of the game are free to play, but then you will have to pay in order to continue your campaign.  – Download from iTunes

6. LEGO Star Wars: Microfighters ($0.99)

As you might expect, Star Wars games on the iOS platform have taken many different shapes and sizes, including RTS games and RPG games. We shouldn’t be at all surprised then to see something like Microfighters, which is yet another game in the LEGO Star Wars franchise but is only loosely connected. This one is a classic top down shooter in the old school vein, so will appeal to retro gamers as well as SW completionists who want to play every game out there! – Download from iTunes

5. Star Wars Pinball 3 ($1.99)

Star Wars Pinball is just as fun as it sounds; developers Zen Studios should be given credit for taking what is really an obsolete game and breathing new life into it through their creative range of different Star Wars titles. This third one is the most fun of all, with a unique and fresh design that promises you’ll never get bored. And new tables are constantly being added in updates so there will always be something to keep you on your toes and continue playing. – Download from iTunes

4. LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga (Free)

We here at Top 8 are huge fans of the LEGO games franchise, including the Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Marvel and of course LEGO Star Wars games. This culminated recently with The LEGO Movie, which was produced by different people but really maintains the same high level of writing and humor. There is a LEGO Star Wars game to represent all the movies that have been released, but you can download them all in The Complete Saga. The game is free to download to your iPhone, but you have to buy each chapter to start playing which is perhaps to be expected. You can progress through the story mode and tick off each chapter as you go, or simply switch to the Free Play mode and get as many coins as you can before kicking things off. – Download from iTunes

3. Angry Birds Star Wars II (Free)

Not at all unexpectedly, the original Angry Birds Star Wars game was a massive hit around the world, and represents one of the more downloaded titles in Rovio’s runaway franchise. The sequel game to this only improves on the original, in this case focusing on the three prequel movies. You can therefore play as Anakin, Yoda, Mace Windu and many more different characters, each of which has a different set of skills and attributes as a result. And if you’re really a glutton for punishment, then why not pick the Jar Jar Binks bird and try to go through the game like that? Everyone loves Jar Jar Binks, right? – Download from iTunes

2. Star Wars: Commander (Free)

The world has been crying out for a good Star Wars strategy game for some time, and Star Wars: Commander goes a good way towards achieving this. You build a base as you do on most RTS games and can then protect your assets within the base while at the same time growing your army. The game starts off on Tatooine, which is perhaps the perfect setting for it but also reminds me of the earlier sci fi landscapes seen in RTS games like Command & Conquer. You can then complete missions for both the dark side and the light side, then decide which you want to pick between the Empire and the Rebels in order to progress through the game. It’s fun and somewhat limited, but as an RTS game it represents one of the best we’ve seen in a SW uniform. – Download from iTunes

1. Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic ($9.99)

Put simply, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is the greatest SW game ever created and rans among the very best RPG games on any platform, too. Having played this game on the Xbox initially (the platform it was first released on) I did go into this on the iPhone full of skepticism, feeling that there was no way the platform could do this game justice – but in actual fact, they have done a great job with this particular port. The best thing about Knights of the Old Republic has to be its depth; you can play it through once and then go back through again, and still discover things that you missed the first time around. And the whole light side/dark side thing is also great, since you gain points for each depending on your actions and your created character evolves accordingly. Are you going to cut corners and head down the dark side, or do you plan to represent the light side of the force? – Download from iTunes
