The Star Wars: Heroes Path game by Disney is a fun, re-imagined way to enjoy the A New Hope journey. Recommended for kids 6-8 years old, this free app is entertaining for adults also. Heroes Path allows you to use your brain and puzzle-solving skills to go from the Tantive IV to the Death Star with many exciting stops in between. As you guide heroes such as Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Han Solo, and C-3PO throughout the Star Wars galaxy the puzzles get more difficult and the enemies more troublesome, but never so much that they take away from the fun.
Star Wars: Heroes Path is much like Angry Birds in that you must complete one level before unlocking the next and one to three stars is awarded based on how well you complete each level’s requirements. Each level presents the hero with a perilous path to negotiate while trying to avoid obstacles, such as Stormtroopers, Tusken Raiders, force fields, and trap doors. And these Stormtroopers are very precise with their blasters. The puzzles make you think in order to solve them, but just enough to make this game fun. And rarely is it more fun to be shot by an Imperial than it is in Heroes Path.
The animation in the game play is incredible, but the motion comics after every four levels is my favorite part of the game. The colors of the motion comics pop off the screen and the animation is dynamic. I was skeptical at first that I would enjoy this game as much as I did, and I now highly recommend it. The main drawback is that all levels aren’t available with the initial free download and must be paid for with those pesky in-app purchase options, but it is still worthwhile whether you buy the extra levels or not. Check out Star Wars: Heroes Path and see if you can defeat the Galactic Empire.
Star Wars: Heroes Path is available from iTunes. It is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.Powered by Sidelines
