I’m a Star Wars addict. I’m also an iPhone app addict. Imagine, then, what my dream app could possibly be. That’s right… a Star Wars app. The makers of Star Wars: Trench Run have made me a very happy boy, indeed. This game is phenomenal! I literally stayed up nearly all night playing it. I’m old, you know, so staying up all night isn’t a very good idea. In any case, the tiredness I felt the next day was absolutely worth it.
The game gives you the chance to relive key scenes from the original movie surrounding the destruction of the Death Star by rebel forces. You will use the Force to overthrow the evil Galactic Empire. As part of the Rebel Alliance’s Red Squadron, you will fight TIE fighters above the Death Star’s surface. Then, you’ll head into a trench to be inundated by cannon fire. Stay out of Darth Vader’s sight as he tries to gun you down before you can fire proton torpedoes into the thermal exhaust port. If you are successful, a direct hit will cause a chain reaction – destroying the Death Star and making you a hero.
I’ve seen a few negative reviews about this game, but I have to respectfully disagree with them. I happen to love it, and will be playing it over and over – and over and over and over!
