  • Summary: Amidst a civil war in a galaxy far, far away, the Emperor is building a Death Star level by level, and he needs your help. Intergalactic war is expensive, and space stations are, too. Do you have any idea how much it costs to build one the size of a moon?

    Tiny Death Star is a refreshing new take on the Star Wars universe, with a wonderful pixelated visual style and endless references for fans of the original trilogy.

    There's enough that's new about Tiny Death Star to make it worthy of note for even the most burned-out Tiny Tower fan, while at the same time remaining faithful to everything that made the original so horribly, horribly addictive. An accomplished remix by anyone's standards.

    Tiny Death Star is Tiny Tower but all decked out with Star Wars. The Star Wars parts are great, but those who got their fill of Tiny Tower already might not find much else new here to get hooked to again.

    As a Star Wars fan it’s no question for me that Tiny Death Star is worth playing despite the added heartache. However, I fully understand that for others, it may be closer to a toss-up as to whether it’s worth the time investment.

    Tiny Death Star doesn’t radically shake up the excellent formula of Tiny Tower. If you’re not a Star Wars buff, the shallow management experience won’t keep you interested for long. But for Star Wars aficionados, the wonderful fan service makes it a no brainer. [Issue 1, February 2014]

    Star Wars: Tiny Death Star may be a retread of NimbleBit's past success, but the Star Wars theme is actually done justice here, making it a hard game to pass up.

    On the surface It may look as cute as an ewok but the money-grabbing machine beneath is twisted and evil – not to mention incredibly boring.

    As a huge Star Wars fan I found a lot to enjoy here. Tons of humor and references will bring plenty of laughs and smiles to any Star Wars fan.As a huge Star Wars fan I found a lot to enjoy here. Tons of humor and references will bring plenty of laughs and smiles to any Star Wars fan. The game is absolutely charming with it's adorable 8-bit graphics, and hearing the classic Star Wars theme presented in elevator music form is surprisingly great. Where the game suffers is in it's gameplay. Yet another management game that forces you to either play around timers or pay real life money to play as long as you want. This style of gameplay as well as the technical issues bring down the experience. Still it's worth a download for Star Wars fans, or just people who like this type of management style of gaming.
