Star Wars: Force Arena guide – Part four – Menu hints and tips

In this fourth part of the series about Star Wars: Force Arena we’re going to have a look at some of the menu mechanics that you’re going to need to make use of if you’re going to succeed in the game.

We’ll break things up with some images as well, so you can see what we’re talking about. We’re good like that. No, no don’t mention it. It’s fine, we’re here to help.

Anyway, tomorrow we’ll have a look at some more advanced tactics for when you’re actually on the battlefield, but right now let’s focus on the menus you’re going to spend a lot of time looking at.


This is where you’ll unlock the cards you win when you play. You’ll need to actively open them once you’ve been given them, and they’ve got a countdown on them that can last for quite a long time.

It’s worth starting an unlock when you’re coming to the end of a play session so that you’ll have the new cards ready the next time you come to play.

This screen also has a number of other reward packs you can unlock at certain times, so it’s always worth coming back and checking if there’s anything new there for you.

Star Wars: Force Arena guide – Part five – Battle hints and tips

In the last part of our series on Star Wars: Force Arena we’re going to look at some hints and tips for the meat of the game – the battles.

If you’ve not checked out the other parts of our guide, well now is as good a time as any to do it. But if you’re only interested in getting some help winning fights, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.

So with a little bit more ado, here’s how to make sure you’re always kicking ass and taking names in this excellent Star Wars-themed MOBA. Don’t all thank us at once, y’hear?


It’s tempting to splurge out a unit and charge out onto the field of battle. You might make a bit of progress, but it’s much smarter to take a few seconds to let your energy reserves build up.

That means you’re going to have more units when you stride out, making you a much more formidable challenge.

Sit and split

If you’ve got units that are in groups of more than two, there’s a sneaky way to use them to attack both sides of the map. Stand where your hero spawns and call out the units.

Half will go up one track, half will go up the other track. It’s a good way to keep your enemy guessing about where to send their own forces.

Think about your hero

Your hero is the most mobile of the units at your disposal, which means they&rs…

Star Wars: Force Arena guide – Part three – Light side or Dark side?

In this section of our Force Arena guide, we’re going to look at a question that pops up quite often – is it best to play as the Light Side or the Dark Side of the Force?

The answer is one that might just surprise you, but we’ll get to that in a minute. First make sure you’ve read the first two parts of our guide to ensure that you’re up to date with everything you need to know up to this point.

I’m gonna presume at this point that you’ve read those, and now I’m going to jump in with the shocking truth – it kinda doesn’t matter which side you choose. In fact, picking one is going to hinder you.

Which side are you on?

There are pros and cons of playing both sides in the game, but the important thing to remember is that the XP you earn from each of your decks goes to your profile, not just to your hero characters.

You earn XP by levelling up your cards, which means when you open card packs with cards for decks you’re not using, it’s worth upgrading them so that your level is constantly on the rise.

The one thing you need to do is make sure you have multiple different styles of deck on the go, regardless of the side of the Force they’re aligned to. That way if you’re taking a beating with one deck you can swap out and try another.

The units are all pretty similar on each side, but sometimes you’ll get more pow…

The Thursday Find – Star Wars: Force Arena

This week’s Thursday Find is actually a pretty big name. And when I say pretty big I mean absolutely massive. Seriously, it’s huge. It’s so big I’m not going to type it in this paragraph, I’m going to type it in the next one.

Star Wars: Force Arena has just come out. It’s a MOBA, it’s full of Star Wars characters, and we reckon that it’s definitely worth your time.

Don’t believe me? Well, I don’t really care. But I’m still going to write a bunch of words to prove to you that you’re very, very wrong. These words, in fact.

Star Wars: Force Arena

What would happen if Clash Royale walked into a fight between a Jedi and a Sith while a bunch of Stormtroopers and Rebel fighters cheered them on? Well, I reckon it’d be something like Star Wars: Force Arena.

It’s a mobile MOBA starring all of your favourite Star Wars characters. Seriously, I’ve already got Luke, Leia, Han, Grand Moff Tarkin, and the bad guy from Rogue One. Oh, and someone called the Grand Inquisitor. No idea.

They’re joined by an army of units. There are loads of different Stormtroopers, Wookiees with massive knives, tanks, and all manner of other Star Wars-y people to throw at your foe.

Battles are short and sweet, and while it doesn’t quite have the pick-up-and-playability of Clash Royale, it’s certainly more welcoming than the likes of Vainglory. You control everything with taps, whi…

Sky Force 2014 Review (5/5)

The original Sky Force came out on mobile devices in 2004. It was a great looking mobile game for its day, and fantastic shooter to boot. Now, a decade later, Sky Force 2014 is looking to do the same again with the benefit of modern tech.

Sky Force 2014 retains the tight shmup combat and  vertically scrolling levels of the original. As before, you must attack approaching targets, while trying to avoid the halestorm of bullets the game throws at you.

A responsive one-to-one control system has your craft hovering just above whichever finger you are using to steer the ship. This allows you to clearly see the action in front of your ship, giving you a better chance of spotting and avoiding oncoming fire.

Stages are punctuated by behemoth like bosses. These all look stunning in the game’s 3D engine, with the grubby combat damage really popping from the screen . From huge planes to battleships, these fights unfold in stages, requiring you to destroy every one of the titan’s multiple weapons to win.

To ensure you fully master each level there is a medal system. These medals are earned by finishing a stage while defeating a percentage of foes, taking no damage, and rescuing all of your allies from the field. The added difficulty this provides is not just for bragging rights, either, with later stages quickly becoming blocked off if you haven’t earned enough silverware to progress.

Powering-up your weapons is a…
