Star Wars Commander is a free battle strategy game in the app store. It is the first app for the franchise since Disney took ownership. I downloaded it; and i’ve been playing it for a few weeks now:
More established players with bigger bases have been kicking my butt – i will get revenge soon (when i’m big and strong; and no longer a bottom feeder). You start the game on the desert planet of Tatooine:
At the beginning of the game you are a neutral mercenary; and after a few quick jobs you are required to choose between the Rebels and the Empire. I went against everyone’s desires and chose to side with the Rebellion (because i’m one of the good guys):
Star Wars Commander is great for a number of reasons:
1. Travelling to a rival base to do battle does not happen in real time – its instantaneous.
2. If you are attacked by a rival; your destroyed buildings are restored to full HP as soon as the battle elapses – all you lose are the resources looted by the rival.
3. Once you are attacked by a rival; you are given a 10 – 15 hour window of immunity/protection from further attacks.
Another great aspect of the game is that you can play the campaigns/chapters on your own which has a great story line; and then you have the option to join a team and attack other players. Since i am with the Rebellion; i can only be in a team with Rebel players; and i can only attack players who have allegiance with the Empire:
There are only two units of resources; Republic Credits (currency), and Alloy (raw building material). Your point score is based on building upgrades; whereas your medal score is based on how well you do in battle (you lose medals when you cannot proficiently defend attacks, or if your attacks fail):
My strongest ground unit at the moment are my Wookiees. I have upgraded their HP and attack damage to level 3. They just absorb/bounce off attacks – like these rockets:
My Wookiees are invincible because of their thick lavish fur. Like me; they use John Frieda Full Repair shampoo and conditioner:
Download Star Wars Commander; and should you choose to join the Rebellion; we can establish a team to crush the Empire. Let me know 🙂 and have fun!
