Star Wars is definitely one of the pillars of science-fiction. The original trilogy revolutionized how the general public perceive the genre and has left it’s trail in almost all areas of life – be it toys, CCGs, books or videogames. Even on the iDevice the franchise has left quite an impression, with Star Wars The Force Unleashed and the recent Star Wars: Trench Run being the most noteworthy titles. And now they have been joined by arguably the best Star Wars game on the iDevice to date in the form of a Tower Defence – Star Wars: Battle for Hoth.
Ok folks, I know you are probably sick and tired of hearing this from me, but the Tower Defence genre has been a bit stale lately. And even the appearances of recent titles like TriDefense and geoDefense Swarm have done little to change that, with things being more of a quantitive than a qualitative difference from the older representatives of the genre. Well, this may finally have changed. Rockiphone, the developers of Battlefield, an open-field TD with a rather interesting and different upgrade path, have gone out and put together another TD game called Dragon Slaughter Episode 1.
