Angry Birds Star Wars Cloud City Now Available!

As many expected, the Cloud City update to Angry Birds Star Wars (v1.2.0) has landed on the Thursday during GDC! Who knows, maybe BirdLeader can give the Mighty Eagle a wink and a nod to say “I know it!”

Anyways, back to business. We reported last week that the update was coming soon, and indeed it has! I think the Rebel Birds were looking to relax after their escape from Hoth, but obviously their plans never quite work as expected. The update has landed for iOS, PC, Mac, and Android via Google Play and the Amazon Appstore, with more platforms coming soon.

Attention PC users: There seems to be a minor bug in this update. We can’t pin down exactly what causes the issue, but there seems to be issues if you have 3-starred the vast majority of levels. Per Rovio Support: “Our wonderful QA team has now been able to find the bug in the game and we are now working on a fix to get it resolved. Hopefully we get it released soon!”

This update includes:

  • 20 levels of Cloud City, based in Bespin with 20 more coming in a future update. The levels are pretty cool and a bit challenging, but that’s fine in my book! Walkthroughs are live and can be found in the Cloud City walkthrough category.
  • 2 new Bonus levels! The 9th Star Bonus level unlocks at 555 stars, and the 8th Droid is the one you seek in Bespin! We won’t say here where to find the Droid you are looking for, but our guide may say it.
  • Boba Fett Missions! (iOS/Android only): This episode consists of 10 levels, all pretty challenging, and all containing the bounty hunter Boba Fett (obviously). To unlock the episode, you can either spring for the $0.99 USD IAP or you can find all 5 jetpacks, scattered across the galaxy. Now, please DO NOT post the locations here. We do have walkthroughs for each level and also show you how to find each jet pack.
  • New steam element, which works similar to the geysers in Red Planet of Angry Birds Space.
  • 1 new iOS achievement, related to the Boba Fett Missions.
  • 2 new Characters to be unlocked, plus one more coming soon! You can now send tweets about your “trophy” (i.e., your unlocking of a character) directly from the page by clicking on it! (Rovio, it seems, plans to add a toggle feature here, to avoid youngsters tweeting on their parents’ behalf.)

I’m again the first person who comments on a new post.
it’s a great update!
And no power-ups!
But no Rovio logo on the game icon. That’s strange.

Maybe because they want to respect LucasArts and don’t want to be greedy about this app (not sure about ABR though)
Indeed a great update. But strange that Rovio uses Chuck’s shape for Lando (he’ll join in our arsenal, that’s the best part)
Boba Fett will fly if he sustain damage.

Now could be the best time to place the Rovio logo on the icon cos Disney shut down LucasArts yesterday. When update 1.2.1 came in just now I thought they wanted to remove LucasArts’ logo from the opening cos of that (just like when Chillingo pulled out of publishing AB way back), but whaddaya know, it’s still there.

And I also anticipated the Disney logo finally appearing on ABSW. LOLz

That’s possible, but on the latest images on the net about AB Toons, the game icon was always with the Rovio logo.

I guess that Lando Bird will take Han Solos spot until Jabbas Palace and will have the same Power (gun). So thats propably why they use Chuck for both characters.

I found & retrieved one jetpack in Cloud City, but I haven’t had a chance to look for the others throughout the game. I also saw the Cloud City droid but couldn’t get him yet. I won’t say where either are, I don’t want to ruin y’alls fun, but I will say that they aren’t very hard to find & the jet pack is pretty easy to grab. I can’t wait to find them all. I’d like to attempt the challenge of finding them instead of just paying the 99c to open it up. The new levels are pretty challenging, but I’ve got thru them all, but don’t have 3 stars on any of them.

Loving the new episode. Apologies that my post in the previous Cloud City thread had to be removed.

I’ve “looked beyond the clouds” and have unlocked the Boba Fett missions. They’re good fun but I’m glad they’re not IAP exclusive, because there’s not enough there to warrant paying to unlock. I understand it with PotJ, as that’s a whole other level of flinging required :)

Leia upgrade!

wondering who’ll appear in place of Han once he’s frozen?

I have to agree, love the new levels. Played the 20 levels of CC and the BFM levels. I could not stop fling’n birds because the levels were just plain fun. Three starred most (11 more to obtain) but will also have to come back and play to obtain above average scores. Want a hoot. Something special about these levels. Leia does appear to have a little more strength.

Boba Fett is an enemy.

Despite his enemy status that Slim mentions, using Boba Fett correctly can greatly increase your score from additional damage points.

Exactly. He’s a bad guy, but you use him against himself. Or not, but he really causes damage when he gets to flying around.

I know it’s early in the release, but since several members have mentioned that the Boba Fett missions are difficult, I was wondering if there is any thought about adding another badge. I haven’t played any of them yet, but if they are like Danger Zone or Path of the Jedi, maybe there could be one? Just thinking out loud.

Profile photo of AngerManagementRank: Master Slinger with 5985 points

I’ve completed them all with 3 stars, @sparty83, except for one that just needs a little more luck. Probably the same difficulty level as PotJ or DZ!

For now, I’ll say no. I got 3-stars on all except for B-8 this morning while writing posts and trying to read Iwasawa Theory for p-adic Representations. While they ARE difficult, I think a badge may be too easily achieved.

B-8 is definitely the most difficult, just got 151k on it:) I agree with @amslimfordy, they are too easy, fun, but should be harder for a badge status.

It’s possible that the “?”-silhouetted character is Cloud City? Or Lando? I don’t have it unlocked yet. I have the other two, but the character post will be one of the last updated.

I have been playing ABSW since the 1st release, and the app has been so amazing. However, after the update of version 1.2.0, I got a bug with my ipad: when I tried to access the store (to purchase the latest episode), the loading icons on the prices are always circulating, so I could not purchase anything. After that, I tried with my Iphone 4s and it worked just fine. Anyone one has any idea if something went wrong with my ipad?
