    The sequel to Rovio's original Angry Birds Star Wars game has just hit the App Store following the public launch of iOS 7. Angry Birds Star Wars IIis based on the "Star Wars" movie prequels and allows players to join either the Pork Federation or the "Pork Side" to play as the pig Darth Maul, Emperor Palpatine, and more.

    Angry Birds Star Wars II includes more than 30 playable characters along with support for Telepods, allowing users to place Angry Birds Star Wars figurines on the front-facing camera of a device to unlock new birds within the game.

    Our sister site TouchArcade has published a detailed review of Angry Birds Star Wars II, describing the game mechanics, in-app purchases, and more.
    Angry Birds Star Wars II is a universal app that can be downloaded from the App Store for $0.99. [Direct Link]

    I think I played maybe 10 levels on the original.. Kind of tired of Angry Birds at this point.

    There is money to be made, that's for sure.

    That horse is alive and well. Might even have some sort of Wolverine-type healing mechanism. I think all the Angry Birds games are in the top 30.

    If it's so hard to write about Angry Birds, why not spare us all and cover literally any other app? Hey, how about an app that keeps track of the battery on your wireless keyboards, mice, and trackpads? It's a lot easier to talk about, a lot more people are interested in and want it, it won Apple's student design contest, MacWorld deemed it one of the best apps on the App Store, it's not a duplicate of another app, and you've never covered it before?

    Probably too risky a move to actually put a Mac news item in the Mac blog - it's much better sticking stock news, news of Apple executives, and Apple store openings in the Mac blog.

    Can't wait for the sequel next year. And the LEGO Star Wars Angry Birds that will follow shortly afterwards.

    This whole "buy toys to unlock new stuff" thing has to stop.

    It's horrific marketing which puts pressure on parents to buy **** for their kids just because Johnny next door has a figure that their kid doesn't.

    It's very clever, but it's sick.

    I would agree, but I'm anxiously waiting the next series of Disney Infinity characters and world sets.

    oh, and all of my dusty skylanders figures are awaiting a new game to play as well.

    I downloaded it last week and I really like it. Will it ever be released on Mac?
