(Slightly) Old Video Game Review: Tiny Death Star (Android)

Star Wars is making a comeback!  No really, they are starting to rise past the failure of the “prequels” and are starting a new sequel trilogy soon (like any of you didn’t know about that).  How should we pass the time until then…hmmm….  How about a Star Wars game!  A new Star Wars game you ask?  Not entirely new, but a mobile game called, Tiny Death Star is available on Android and iOS phones.  Tiny Death Star is a fun little sim that is one of the cutest versions of Star Wars ever presented.  I play this game way too much.  It’s a great time waster.  The funny thing is, time is the main point of the game.  You will be waiting a lot.  It gets annoying at first, but once you start building your awesome 8-bit Death Star, there is no turning back…

The main idea of this game is to build all the levels in your Death Star.  You are provided with an elevator to help with the building process and transporting “bitizens” – the people who hire/roam/customers the death star – or VIPs to each level.  Gaining Imperial coins and Imperial Bucks (which will be a rarity) will help you build more levels and gain access to more money and “bitizens”.  Imperial coins are the main source of spending for building levels.  Imperial Bucks helps speed the process of obtaining levels and products to sell for your levels quickly, but they should be mainly spent on secret characters or gaining faster elevators that increase the speed and amount of “tip” you get from the bitizens that arrive in it.  You will need to save a lot of Imperial Bucks to obtain the fastest elevator.
