Gameplay[edit | edit source]
Players choose one of six vehicles, depending on the campaign chosen, and control them using their device's touchscreen. The game scrolls from top-to-bottom, and the fire controls are tied to the vehicular movement. Players may collect studs and upgrade the Microfighters before a mission. Each planet has a separate boss battle. It only features singleplayer missions.
Development[edit | edit source]
LEGO Star Wars: Microfighters was announced on January 24, 2014, with a cinematic trailer released on the LEGO YouTube Channel. The game is meant to complement the Star Wars Microfighters LEGO Sets that are currently being sold. It is developed by Traveller's Tales and published under the LucasArts banner on January 30, 2014. It is for iOS devices, and spans the time of the Star Wars films.
Continuity[edit | edit source]
The game adapts several LEGO Star Wars sets, including the Rebel Scout Speeder. One such set the V-19 Torrent was added although for some unknown reason the lower wing is on the top while it is flying, contrary to how the V-19's flight mode functions.
Reception[edit | edit source]
A review has cited the lack of engaging content in the game as a problem, as well as finicky controls, despite the Star Wars theme. The reviewer rated it at 4 out of 10. Another review noticed the fairly large bit of content, but also had issues with the lack of ideas and "lack of heart".
