Angry Birds Star Wars Concludes Cloud City, Adds Power Ups and Lando Calrissian

Yes folks, as we suspected, Angry Birds Star Wars v1.3.0 has been released and there are lots of great galaxy-saving adventures in your future! The update has landed for iOS, PC, Mac, and Android via Google Play and the Amazon Appstore, with more platforms coming in the near future.

Attention Amazon users: Be sure to download v1.3.1, which resolves the crashing issue from the initial release.

Attention PC users: v1.2.0 has landed for PC today, which includes the first 20 levels of Cloud City and Boba Fett’s Missions. All inquires should be directed to the v1.2.0 release post, which includes plenty more information.
Update for PC users: v1.3.0 landed on 14 August. We created a separate post to announce the release, but this post likely contains far more information in terms of general advice.

This update includes:

  • 20 levels in the epic finale of Cloud City! Walkthroughs are ready and can be access through the Cloud City page.
  • 2 Bonus levels: The 10th star level unlocks at 640 stars, and it is the ninth droid that you are looking for. Our Droid and Bonus Levels Guide is there if you need help.
  • Lando Calrissian appears with the unique ability to fire not one, not two, but three laser blasters at once!
  • Power Ups with in-game score distinction! We have more about this below, but in-game score distinction is certainly great! Reminder: No Power Up scores on our AB:SW leaderboard, please!
  • 4 new achievements for iOS. We’ve updated that page, so who’s your daddy now? ;)
  • 5 SW characters to unlock! As an added bonus, you now need to grant AB:SW permission to use Twitter from the Characters page.
  • Toons fan? Check out “Boba’s Delivery”, now available in AB:Toons!

Power Ups

Power Ups have made their move from the Facebook version of Star Wars to the mobile app, but they came with a new in-game score distinction. In other apps with this distinction (e.g., Space and Seasons), you can only view your best PU score by using a PU again. With Star Wars, however, both scores are displayed simultaneously! This is a very cool system.

The Power Ups added to AB:SW are the same as appear in the Facebook version:

  • Clone Bird: Add one more bird to any level! The cloned bird matches the bird already loaded in the slingshot, I believe.
  • Thermal Detonator: Melt the Empire’s defenses with the Thermal Detonator, a small explosive that will stick to the first structure your bird touches.
  • Blaster Droid: Attach a blaster bolt shooting droid to your bird’s head!
  • Lightsaber Sling: Energize the slingshot to increase birds’ speed.

Now for prices:

  • Clone Bird
  • 10 individual: $1.99
  • 20 (+10) individual: $4.99
  • 50 (+20) individual: $9.99
  • 100 (+50) individual: $19.99
  • Individual TD, BD, or LS
  • 30 individual: $1.99
  • 70 (+10) individual: $4.99
  • 150 (+20) individual: $9.99
  • 300 (+100) individual: $19.99
  • Bundle of TD/BD/LS
  • 10 each: $1.99
  • 30 each:$4.99
  • 65 each: $9.99
  • 140 each: $19.99

Ok,PU’s had to happen but kudos to Rovio for having two scores on the board….very cool :) This will make life easier proving questionable high scoring. Would have liked to have had the option to turn them off but heyho,I’m happy!…….WOW! “Happy & PU” in the same sentence…..who would have thought?;)

This is a really righteous and very cool update. Rovio isn’t trying to do any in-app sales of additional levels that I’ve found & it makes for an almost nostalgic experience in regards to the Angry Birds culture! Great Job!

I like this kind of PU distinction. Should be incorporated into all the games. I don’t even see the distinction (in-game) for Seasons.

If you activate a power up (in Seasons or Space), the Highscore will switch to your PU score.

Thanks for the quick reply. I was referring to how on the chapter selection screen for Space, it shows PU and normal scores (at least for Android) but not on Seasons.

@AMSlimfordy — other admins. Kudos on the fast walktrhoughs. They usually aren’t up when I finish my first run-through (at ~9am PDT).
Some of these levels are really hard; seems like they all require a 1-birder. The boss fight is next to impossible. (Yes, I know some people have 3*).

It updated on my Kindle also without “permission”. It also kicks me out and back to my main screen. Tried rebooting but that didn’t work. Will take @amslimfordy advice and notify Rovio. Hopefully it will have a bug fix soon.

If the ad server is to blame for Cloud City crashing the game for Android users, then perhaps trying to run the game in Airplane mode would be a temporary solution until Rovio puts out a fix.

Played a few levels and the 3 lasers of Lando Bird are great. What was really enjoyable about this update, so far, was the use of the exhaust fans for LB/lasers with the combination of the ricochet effects for the lasers, debris and fans. This was fun and do need more hours in the day to progress.

CC update for android, actualised by Play Shop, also makes some crashes by stoping a game and a phone (sony experia arc s). It’s happened from time to time during more complicated levels. I could report precisly – on demand next time.

Once I can’t answer a phone. I hear a ring but no move was possible. Fon unlock screen was unobtainable, missed call – not shown at list. Only reset a phone helps.

CC new episodes are superb. I finished all off them with fast manner at 12 hours (all 3* of course) with 2 bonus to. Now I’m replaying it.

I expected the last 20 episodes of Cloud City would be more like the return to Tatooine… Meh.

Rank: Master Slinger with 7205 points
By TruckDriver (@truckdriver)

I fully expect that, (the return to Tatooine), to be a whole different chapter. After all, in the final movie chronology, there’s the return to Tatooine, followed by a few scenes on Dagobah, (more PoTJ levels, anyone?), ending with Endor and the Second Death Star.

So, potentially, that’s three more chapters, plus the possibility of additional levels in PoTJ. We’ll just have to see.

Rank: Explosive with 2415 points
By Legosponge2015 (@legosponge2015)

I Don’t know if the Return to Tatooine would have enough levels to be a whole new chapter. Maybe Tatooine and either the second half of Dagobah, or Endor would be tied in somehow? Not sure…
