The Thursday Find – Heart Star

This week’s Thursday find is all about hearts. Which is sort of fitting since it’s Valentine’s Day next week and that’s all about hearts too (well, sort of, but this isn’t really the place to discuss that. Have a Google).

It’s a platforming puzzler with some nice touches and an impressive chunk of levels. And it’s out right now. And you can grab it by clicking the emboldened name just below the next paragraph.

But what’s it called? What’s it all about? Why am I still splurging out so much preamble? Those are all good questions, so let’s go and answer some of them.

Heart Star

Heart Star is a game about getting two characters to the same spot. The controls are simple – you’ve got buttons to move left and right, a jump button, and a final poker that switches between the two main leads.

From there the game grows into something intriguing and elegant, as you fathom out how you can get to the torch that marks the end of the level without plummeting to your death.

It’s not just a case of moving both around either, you need to cooperate, using different characters as platforms and sometimes carrying each other.

That’s because certain parts of the level disappear when you switch characters. So you might need to jump to a certain place with one of them, then switch characters and use their head as a platform for the ot…

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.

Rewards

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?

Wait

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…

The Tuesday Best of – Star Wars games

Guess what’s coming out this week? Star Wars: Rogue One. So that means it’s the perfect time to have a look back at the best Star Wars games on mobile. There aren’t that many that are REAL good, so it’s quite a short list.

But that’s okay, because as we all know it’s quality not quantity that makes the wheels of the world go round. Or something like that. And these games really are of the tip toppest quality. One of them might even be my favourite game ever.

And the other two are probably the best examples of the series they’re part of. So all in all, there might not be that many ace Star Wars games on mobile, but the ace ones are super ace. Just go read the list.

Knights of the Old Republic


I can’t count the number of times I’ve written about KOTOR in glowing terms. And I expect that’s because it’s a high number, not that I can’t count very high. But it really is the finest example of the Western RPG in existence.

And this mobile version works brilliantly, letting you take control of one of the most interesting stories the Star Wars universe has ever told. And it has all the hallmarks of the Bioware games that came afterwards.

Set in the dim and distant past (a long LONG time ago) it’s a tale of Sith and Jedi that spans the galaxy. And it’s a galaxy populated with interesting character…
