The Best Star Wars Video Game – Ever!

When Star Wars: Trench Run was released in the App Store, I had to buy it right away. I love games on my iPhone, and I am a Star Wars fanatic. I was shocked to discover how awesome this game really is. It’s definitely worth the money, by far. Playing the game is actually quite intuitive.

Use the Force to overthrow the evil Galactic Empire as they attempt to destroy the small Rebel base on the jungle moon of Yavin 4. As part of the Rebel Alliance’s Red Squadron, you dogfight with TIE fighters above the Death Star’s surface before heading into a trench where you are inundated by cannon fire. Dodge obstacles and stay out of Darth Vader’s sights as he tries to gun you down before you have the chance to fire your proton torpedoes into the thermal exhaust port the size of a womp rat. If successful, a direct hit will cause a chain reaction that destroys the Death Star, thus saving the Rebel base from impending doom.

I also had Trench Run running on my computer. As I exited out of the iPhone app, you can see that one of the features is being able to buy a .99 in-game upgrade. I can now use my iPhone as a wireless controller connected to any computer!

Additionally, you can play Trench Run for free – right in your browser.

If you want to demonstrate the capabilities of what the iPhone can really DO – this is an amazing way to accomplish that. Five bucks is not too much for this game, I promise you that. It’s well worth it. Fantastic.

The Best iPhone App Ever – Star Wars: Trench Run

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!
