The lights are on
Today Lego announced a new, free mobile and browser-based Star Wars game. Lego Star Wars: The Yoda Chronicles allows players affiliate with the light and dark side by choosing to play as either Yoda or Count Dooku.
According to Lego's press release, the game takes place on Coruscant, desert planets, and industrial factories. There will be 15 levels along with 5 bonus missions. The first half of the levels will be available for iOS and web browsers May 4, with the rest arriving this summer. Lego says you'll also be able to unlock new content by transferring your Lego ID between the browser and iOS versions of the game. The free game will arrive on Android devices alongside the second half of the levels this summer.

Hahahah nice, nice.
Cool, too bad I have to wait for the Android version in the summer. Oh well, there's always the browser based version to try first.
What happened with Obi-wan's face?! Looks like he glued cardboard onto his face for a beard or something.
I would play this if I still had a phone of my own. The easter eggs alone are the main reasons I still enjoy the Lego games, although the slow platforming gameplay is slightly less entertaining with each release.
That's actually a pretty sweet little idea.
Awesome. :] They got to show off the new sets and the show for Cartoon Network. Not really a big fan of LEGO games on a portable device. But we shall see how it turns out. :]
That's cool. I'll make sure to check it out on iOS on May 4th and will be hoping that it isn't one of those games that is filled with in-app purchases.
Why do developers ALWAYS make the apps for iOS and later for Android?
