Lucasfilm and DeNA have announced an all new game for iPhone and Android, Star Wars Galactic Defense.  This is a tower defense game which is characterized by the positioning of static units by the player to defend against mobile enemy units who are trying to get from a start point to an end point. There is a set number of enemy units (or ‘damage’ the player can take from units reaching the end point) who can reach the end point before the level is lost. Some games use a static route that the enemy units follow around which the player places their towers, while others favor a free-form environment that allows the user to define the path the enemy units take. Some games use a mixture of both. Most games allow the upgrading of the player’s towers.

Of course this Tower Defense game is unique in that it is based in the Star Wars Universe.  Check out a description and a short development video for the game below!
