We want to thank you for being part of this game, it's meant a great deal to us. Keep on flinging!"
―Angry Birds Star Wars II[3]

Angry Birds Star Wars II is a video game in the popular Angry Birds app series that was released on iPhone, Android and Windows Phone 8 on September 18, 2013. It is a crossover between Star Wars and the Angry Birds series. The game is the seventh Angry Birds game developed by Rovio Entertainment. The game is a sequel to Angry Birds Star Wars and is based on the Star Wars prequel trilogy (as opposed to the original trilogy setting in the original game, Angry Birds Star Wars), as well as the television show Star Wars Rebels. It uses Hasbro's TELEPODS technology.[5] The game is notable in that not only does it allow one to play as the Republic, but also control the "Pork Side" (a parody of the dark side). Along with Angry Birds Star Wars, Angry Birds Star Wars II was discontinued in March 2020.[3]

Gameplay[]

Overview[]

One of the game's many levels.

Angry Birds Star Wars II is the prequel and sequel to Angry Birds Star Wars. It contains characters, planets and storylines from the prequel trilogy and the animated TV-series Star Wars Rebels's first season. Such as The Grand Inquisitor, General Grievous and Mustafar. The game consists of using a slingshot to throw "pigs" or "birds" to some structures built of various materials which protect various "enemies" or "bosses".

The game features "chapters", groups of levels grouped by storylines, such as "The Invasion of Naboo" and "The Battle of Naboo", every chapter has from 1 to 31 levels. Most of the chapters end with a boss, which can be destroying Padmé Amidala's ship and all Royal Naboo Security members on a Trade Federation ship or defeating The Grand Inquisitor on the surface of the planet Lothal.

One of the game's many cutscenes.

The story is told from the perspective of the Pork side or the Avian Republic, depending on which side you choose on the main menu, as all chapters have a "Pork Side" version and a "Avian Republic" version. Cutscenes usually follow the movie's or series' stories, however, they usually don't completely follow the plot of the movie or series, such as the first chapter, "The Invasion of Naboo", it shows Obi-Wan Kenobi and Qui-Gon and Amidala's ship fighting two battles instead of one battle on Naboo.

Chapters[]

The game is divided into chapters. From the first chapter, "The Invasion of Naboo" to the last chapter "Rebels", each chapter has between 1 to 31 levels. There are 8 total chapters, two of them aren't based on any storyline, three are based on the Phantom Menace's plot, 1 is based on Attack of the clones. The two last chapters are one based on Revenge of the sith and the final one on Star Wars Rebels's first season. When a player begins a chapter, they choose a side, to unlock the other side they must complete it or purchase the other side.

The first or second boss you can encounter, and the finale of the first or second chapter, the MTT.

The 8 chapters are, "Reward Chapter", a chapter in which you can master specific characters, "Master your Destiny", where you can develop your skills with the pork or avian sides, "Naboo Invasion", where you can recreate the events of the Naboo Invasion. "Escape to Tatooine", where you battle against Jawas and Sebulba, "Battle of Naboo", end the Trade Federation's control of Naboo. "Rise of the clones", defeat Zam Wessel and Obi-Wan Kenobi, "Revenge of the Pork", battle against the Chosen One or his master, and finally, "Rebels", revive the events of the Rebels TV-show.

Bosses[]

The game's chapters usually end with a boss. The bosses are the movie/series the chapter is based on's villain, such as Count Dooku in case you play as the Avian Republic, or in case you play as the Pork Side, Amidala's ship, Kenobi or Kanan Jarrus.

Currencies[]

The game has two currencies, credits and micro-transaction, real world money. You could buy infinite character packs or more credits through micro-transactions. Credits could buy some infinite character packs, more characters, skip levels and unlock chapters or a side of a chapter.

Shop[]

The in-game Avian Republic shop.

Angry Birds Star Wars II was released on September 18, 2013. It allows players to integrate Hasbro's Telepods into the gameplay.[1] In May 2014 Rovio Entertainment released an update with 44 levels and new game effects.[6]
