The Force Is Strong With This Game
Remember the <a href='http://videogames.lego.com/en-us/star-wars-saga/about/screenshots/xbox-360'>LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga video game</a> that was first released in 2007 for consoles? After being released on Windows in 2009 and on Mac in 2010, it now gets a new release as an iOS app. The app takes up 793 MB, requires iOS 6.0 or higher and runs on iPhones, iPads and iPod touch. <a href='https://itunes.apple.com/de/app/lego-star-wars-complete-saga/id727420266?mt=8'>It's free</a>, so the Dark Side of the Force must be truly strong in you if you don't give it a try.

It's great to be playing this again! I have an iPhone 4 that I use as an iPod Touch, and it's fairly playable, despite being older hardware. It will drastically slow down at times, but it's nothing absolutely major. Hopefully they can optimize it a bit better for newer devices, since it appears to be the wii version, complete with its low resolution.

Wow, free??

 

I own both I and II on GameCube, and the Complete Saga on Wii, but I might as well get this then.

Free? Seems almost too good to believe. I would get it on my ipod, but 800mb is too much.

I'm going to download this right away.

 

Unbelieveable that it's free, though.

 

EDIT:

Ah, now I know the catch. Only Episode I is free. You have to buy the others through in-app purchase.

And for some reason you need a device with a gyroscope (?).

I was going to say, it's an obvious con!

A gyroscope is a sensor for the phone's orientation. I'm not familiar with the game controls, but it seems logical they'd use that.

Yeah, I know what I gyroscope is. I'm just puzzled why they need that for the game.

Why can't they put all episodes in and charge it for just a few dollars? Just doesn't seem right to me... I know it's just a ploy to get more money, but this is a little cruel.

Nothing could prepare Sybre for the final battle.

 

Head down to Snax in the comic forum to see the battle that will determine the fate of Sybre.

You can get the entire game for $15 in one in-app purchase. Plus it is linked to your iTunes account, so no chance of losing it in case of an accident. In case anyone is wondering, it is the same version as the console one, not the DS one.

Although I already played the game in Wii, but I did download the app version of it because I would like to experience playing this version. I liked the Wii version of the game, so I will try liking the app version of it. And I think buying the app for free is good.:) It's unlike the Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes and Lego The Lord Of The Rings apps, which cost $5.00 each.:(

I think the concept of offering the app for free and charging for the later episodes is a sound one, and one I've taken advantage of for other games. It basically allows users to take the game for a test drive before spending money on it, which is a valuable asset for console ports since not all games make the touchscreen-only transition well.

The main reason I haven't gotten it is that I've already played through it for Gamecube/Wii (I forget which), and I have plenty of games on my iPhone that I have yet to play (Ghost Trick and Shantae: Risky's Revenge, among others).

$15 for all the episodes seems like a bit much though. All the other ones have been $5 for the whole thing.

And I would prefer to buy something in the App Store itself than through an in-app purchase.

So, basically, this download is a demo for the relatively inexpensively priced full game, which contains none of the "pay 99 cents for invincibility" garbage that has invaded so much of the mobile sector. Color me relieved.

I got really excited, downloaded it, and then realized that to do anything other than play Episode 1 you had to buy "bundles".

 

I dunno, maybe I'd be less disappointed if the developer had at least called it a demo or made the whole thing cost money up front or something instead of leading everyone to believe it was a free game.
