Entertainment applications based on Star Wars
Star Wars: Card Trader
The well-known Star Wars franchise does not think to give up positions. Not so long ago, there was a mobile application Star Wars: Card Trader, which brings users to the process of collecting Star Wars cards.
Star Wars Card Trader is a new application for iOS and Android OS, allowing you to exchange, buy, and simply store collectible cards based on the famous universe of George Lucas. The cards in the application are digital copies of collectible souvenirs, issued since 1977, when the fourth episode of the movie Star Wars appeared. Cards issued for the seventh episode are also available in the appendix. To buy items of exchange, you will need to spend special “loans.”
At the start, you get 25 000 credits, which is enough to purchase several sets of cards.
You can earn additional credits by looking through advertising, although developers will gladly accept real cash from you in exchange for virtual money and not less virtual cards. As you can see, attempts to make money on a popular franchise do not stop, and for this all means are good.
In total this application offers you about 1000 cards devoted to Star Wars characters of different series and time periods. The cards will be marked with certain colors depending on the degree of their rarity, and the so-called legendary cards are placed in a separate category.
Sets of cards with the largest content of rare maps, of course, will be the most expensive.
Non-subscribers can register in a trial mode for one month of a Star Wars Galaxies subscription. This allows you to access all the game modes and allows you to trade with other players. After the subscription expires, you lose the opportunity to receive monthly free cards but full access to the game content remains.

Star Wars Scene Maker
A new simulator shooting of “Star Wars” was created and called Star Wars Scene Maker.
Studio Disney has developed a new application that permits you to feel like a director, shooting scenes from the original trilogy of “Star Wars”. This application is affordable for free to iPad owners.
The program contains three-dimensional models of heroes, techniques, and environments from the films “New Hope”, “The Empire Strikes Back”, and “Return of the Jedi.” Free from Star Wars Scene Maker is the Battle for Endor from the sixth episode. Fighting of fighters in the trenches of the Death Star and a duel in the Cloud City from the fourth and fifth episodes are bought for some peer Dialogues are a little while but the music is from all six films.
Any user can feel like a young George Lucas, placing mobile virtual cameras in 3D environments. It is possible to shoot what is happening from a place, with movement, and in pursuit. In the free kit, you can work with Khan Solo, C3P0, extras-stormtroopers, stepping combat imperial car, and extras from the crowd.
Solo reads his dialogue from the film himself: but you may also record improvised replicas for stormtroopers! Star Wars Scene Maker will automatically filter them and make them authentically indecipherable. Then we shout “action!” And let the walking robot go. The battle is removed from different angles: there are large, general, and medium plans.
Having successfully shot a double, you can add to it the yellow titles of your own composition creeping into the icy infinity of the cosmos. After post-production, the material is immediately posted on YouTube and Facebook.
Star Wars by Disney
After the fans of Star Wars celebrated the premiere of the new part, Disney did not forget about the users of smartphones. An interactive application that was prepared with the idea of the Android system and iOS and this provision is mandatory for everyone who loves Star Wars!
A small bonus, which pleases the eyes immediately from the main interface of the program – at the top of the screen, there is a weather widget showing the temperature.
The application automatically adapts to it a planet from the world of Star Wars, which resembles the climate that currently accompanies us outside the window. When you click on the widget, we can find out the weather for the next few days. All this is accompanied by light and the landscape of the planet, which moves along with the movement of our hand, in which we hold the smartphone.
Another small gadget is a countdown timer for the selected event. Clicking it, we can determine the event that should take place.
Over the counter, we find the dates of events related to Star Wars. A little bit later, we find also links to stellar news and a review of the latest clips related to the saga.
Topical stickers and voiceovers
The first tab, which we will find under the links to news and video is “gifs + emojis”. Here we find, by the way, emoticons. They are the same as on Facebook, stickers are with war heroes. They were prepared specifically on the occasion of the premiere of the new part of the film. In this part of the application, we can send a gif to friends.
This is not the end of entertainment. The app offers a soundbar with sounds and lyrics that we know from previous parts of Star Wars. The board with sound buttons is divided into three categories. The first two are quotes and effects. In the last section, we can compose our own track, mixing any sounds from previous departments.
Next, find the photo editor for a selfie. On recent photos, you will see your face registered in the world of Star Wars. We may be accompanied by our favorite heroes, the characteristics of the background and clothing. Of course, not without lightsabers.
Of course, it’s also worth mentioning a mini-game called Force Trainer, which is an integral part of this application. When moving the phone, we can protect ourselves from missiles that fly in our direction. The game uses a camera built into our smartphone. This is a good training for agility and it just cheers up.
However, this is not the end of entertainment related to the expanded reality. If we see somewhere posters Star Wars, it’s worth taking them to the camera in the smartphone. This will open three-dimensional models of characters that will appear on the screen, creating the illusion of their presence in the real world.
Disney was, as always, on top. An application supporting the promotion of a new part of the film is a find for every fan, who in recent years has been eagerly awaiting the Awakening of the Force. If you like Star Wars, be sure to download this app for free.

LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga
The company Warner Brothers continues to release iOS and Android games from the LEGO series. Now the line has reached the universe of Star Wars, fans of which will definitely be pleased with the full port of the famous product of the recent past. All six episodes are in one shell – this is an endless struggle between Good and Evil, hours of gameplay, and tons of cubes.
The game provides an opportunity to participate in the events of every movie of the Star Saga, and the story line is as close to the original as possible. The animated mini-figures of the characters run on dozens of locations from the cubes of LEGO, from the Geonosian Coliseum (where the epic battle took place at the end of the “Attack of the Clones”) to the palace of Jabba the Hutt. Fights on light swords and shooting from blasters are combined with the decision of quests, many of which will cause difficulties even for the savviest gamers. After some time, however, you begin to get used to the local thinking: to break the automatic door, you need to move something, put it, then climb into the droid and go there…
Among other things, you will be given to drive on all kinds of vehicles. This greatly dilutes the usual gameplay: especially pleased the beginning of the fifth episode, where you need to fly on the snowspeeder’e and roll up the rope of the giant walkers feet. But the “Revenge of the Sith” begins with an epic space battle, full of special effects and drive.
LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga is free, the first episode is available initially. The rest are opened through In-App Purchase, and the full set of levels will cost $ 11. Agree, not the biggest price for a few hours of fascinating gameplay. Add here a few mini-games and get entertainment, which for a long time will not want to come off. All the objects and figures that you met during your adventure, you can see in the gallery – an interesting bonus for these fans.
Graphics and sound do not differ from the version of the product for older platforms. Nevertheless, the optimization under the displays Retina performed mediocrely, well markedly low-resolution textures. Perhaps the developers wanted to achieve better performance on relatively old devices. The soundtrack of movies, cut scenes, and special effects by mobile standards deserve a higher score – there’s nothing to complain about.
We highly recommend LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga to all lovers of the intergalactic epic, who are not afraid of difficulties in the passage of quests. Here it is necessary not only to shoot and wave a laser stick but also to think with your head. For casual gamers, this situation may not be liked, although you can try the demo version.

Throughout the game, the character will in some way help in the game, he will shoot back from the stormtroopers.
It is worth noting that all the characters from the movie in the game are animated and made using 3D graphics. This feature makes the game more fun. In addition, there are gaming tables of such characters as Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker, and others.

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic
The game Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic by BioWare was rightfully considered one of the best titles dedicated to the world of “Star Wars” by George Lucas and his famous movie.
This game is distinguished not only by a large number of action and adventures, similar to the original films but also by a larger epic view of the entire universe, so thoroughly described in the Star Wars franchise.
The game takes you 4,000 years before Obi-Wan Kenobi first took the lightsaber. You find yourself on a board of a Republican spacecraft called Endar Spire and immediately get the task to save the troubled Jedi Knight Bastille. This task will be the first among the many adventure missions waiting for you in this game. You will have to master the art of the Jedi and visit the many planets that were only indirectly mentioned in the tapes of Lucas.
If you have already played the original version of Knights of the Old Republic, then the remake will not baffle you – menu screens, battle control, prompts, and dialog boxes look exactly the same as in the previous version. The same beginners who did not encounter this game but are familiar with Mass Effect will experience a light deja vu, as some moments of commonality are traced.
The greatest changes in the gameplay in the updated game occurred in the management of movements. To control your hero in various locations, which he gets during the game, you will use gestures. Swapping up and down you can move the character forward and backward, and horizontal movement will help him to turn from side to side, changing the angle of view.
This method of control is a kind of compromise between control with the mouse and keyboard, and also with the help of the traditional touchpad. We would like to note that the authors managed to implement such a method of management quite well, and after certain training, you will easily move along the corridors and escape from the patrols of the Sith.
As for the plot itself, it is close in idea and style to most modern RPGs. The game has a lot of completely voiced dialogues (including alien dialects) that animates the gameplay and gives realism to the game world. Battles are a mix of real-time strategy with turn-based. They, of course, use light swords, which produces an excellent visual impression. The graphics, of course, look a bit rustic, as in the current standards, but the gameplay tightens, and, at some point, you stop noticing the small angularity of the lines.
As conclusion: this game is definitely worth to be downloaded and tested, despite the fact that it may seem a little expensive. If you are a fan of the classic RPG and the Star Wars saga, you definitely will not regret your choice.iOS version Android version
