Star Wars Social Media App

Star Wars Social Media App to Indulge Diehard Star Wars Fans  

Star Wars free social media app is Disney’s way of indulging Star Wars faithfuls who have kept the “Force” alive in their hearts after more than a decade of dormancy. Now that LucasFilms has taken on Walt Disney Pictures and Bad Robot Productions as partners, a reunion of sorts will bring together the millions that make up the Star Wars fanbase.

To help Star Wars followers keep abreast with the forthcoming sequel “The Force Awakens,” and forever be refreshed about all things they love about the movie, Disney rolled out this mobile application. It aggregates all the latest news, posts, tweets, photos, videos, feeds and just about everything there is to know and love about Star Wars.

The Star Wars app is available to users of iOS-supported mobile devices running on Versions 7.1 and up, which can be downloaded FREE from Apple’s iTunes App Store.

Star Wars App Features

iOS device users signing up as member of the growing Star Wars community can get a Star Wars ID. The app has an array of avatars, which they can use in building a profile linked to the Star Wars community.

The app compiles all Star Wars exclusive information, coming from the official Star Wars website and social media pages such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Instagram, YouTube, and Tumblr.  Via customized feeds, app users can watch interviews, behind-the-scene clips, movie trailers, more Star Wars digital apps, products, and various elements they find endearing about Star Wars. Through this app, any breaking news that comes hot off the press will be relayed instantly to the user via snapshot news tickers and notifications.

The app also features a “This Day in Star Wars History” segment, a sort of fun fact timeline, plus a countdown to any big events about to come up.  Currently, the app is counting down the remaining number of days for the forthcoming “Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens,” slated for release on December 18, 2015.

A unique Augmented Reality camera allows users to unlock 3D characters straight from the upcoming “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” They can also virtually don iconic costumes and be in the midst of authentic Star Wars setting, and take a selfie that they can share with friends and family. In fact, they can even be Princess Leia or Hans Solo or whichever Star Wars character they want to be.

A real treat for SW diehards, is the Force Trainer segment that could transform their iOS-supported smartphone into a lightsaber.  SW fans can replicate authentic sound effects, and one-liners such as “May the Force be With You,” “It’s a Trap” “Jedi Scum,” and a lot more classic SW quotable quotes, including the “R2-D2 scream” and “Jabba laugh,” using the app’s quality soundboard.

App users also have an array of Star Wars Emojis to use and animated GIFs to share with fellow Star Wars fans. Even the five-day weather forecast feature can bring a Star Wars-related experience, as the segment makes use of parallaxes, which allow users to view the original universe-themed art designs in different angles. The weather segment furnishes information not only about the temperature for the day, but also indicates which SW planet has that same kind of warmth.

Angry Birds Epic: Turn-Based Game Android App, Rated 3+ Up by Google Play Store

Angry Birds Epic 1Angry Birds Epic Game App brings you and younger Android device players to Piggy Island, a flight-of-the-imagination- place where the obnoxiously greedy King Pig rules, along with his equally horrible offspring Prince Porky. The ninth of Rovio Entertainment’s Angry Birds series, players will see Red in action as the Knight Protector of the flock of birds in the island, particularly the eggs yet to hatch.

King Pig ordered his snouted minions to steal one of the eggs, for which Red the Knight sets out on a mission to retrieve it. Angry Birds Epic players engage in a turn-based role-playing game of battling against the King’s hench-hogs. The game-play, however, does not involve the original bird-flinging attack, which makes it suitable for younger players. Here, players simply drag a character’s offensive attack toward the enemy target. The level of damage inflicted will affect the health or battle life of both birds and swine, as the case may be.

Each game level is a journey forward to several game levels, initially, the King Pig’s castle. The game starts with Red as the lone traveler. As the red cardinal progresses, his best friend Chuck joins him to lend a powerful hand as The Mage. In higher game levels, Matilda will join Red and Chuck in battling King Pig, Prince Porky, their prize pig fighters, and their battle troops. More Angry Birds characters such as Bomb and the Blues Bird Brothers Jay, Jim and Jake will be joining in, once they reach other parts of the island.

Angry Birds Epic 2In order to keep themselves powerful and capable of enduring tough battles against stronger pig enemies, the Angry Birds here have the ability to use their own strength and capabilities to make themselves even tougher than they already are. Tapping once on the character itself, produces such an effect. A dragging action from Chuck to Red or vice versa can also transfer a secondary skill from one to the other. However, the action can only be carried out as part of the Angry Birds character’s turn to attack.

As a Mage, Chuck inflicts lesser damage, but the yellow bird has greater area of effect (AOE). This means that whenever Chuck inflicts damage on a single enemy, the force of his attack will affect the rest of his opponents. Matilda, on the other hand, has healing powers and she has the ability to transfer some of them to Red and Chuck. However, as the battles get tougher since King Pig also has his own set of tricks to use in vanquishing the Angry Birds trio, the right combination of skills and attack power must be carried out in order to defeat King Pig.

Angry Birds Epic App Features

The game app is still easily recognizable as a Rovio crafted game, as it still possesses the silly and wacky character presentations, as well as the inane concepts of weaponry. There is a Red Chili that gets energized during battle, which the Angry Birds can use as Rage Power to vanquish with just one sweep , seemingly undefeatable enemies.

The app furnishes ample visual instructions that would make it easy for young players to follow and understand actions they need to take. Finger pointing, dragging and thumbs up sign appears as easy to discern guides. Joysticks implanted on the maps are the game initiators; flags mark the territories covered or game stages surpassed, swords-in-skirmish denotes entering the battle arena, while the icon with tropical island elements will bring players back to Pig Island.

Angry Birds Epic is an excellent family app that everyone will enjoy; older players can help the younger ones figure out which characters to use and powers to combine in the higher game levels.

Alchemy

AlchemyAlchemy for Android is a unique puzzle game that brings together the elements of the world and progress into one game. This game invites you to use the elements of fire, water, earth and air to create something brand new. You will see how the world progressed from the past to the future, and you will unlock new levels with your wise use of these elements.

The General Premise

Alchemy starts with only earth, fire, water and air. You are left with nothing more than what the cavemen had to work with when civilization first arose on this planet. You combine these elements to make new products that will fill the board, and every new product can be combined with other products to create even more progress.

You may not have thought about how earth and fire make a skyscraper, but you will learn as you create all the components for a skyscraper in the game. This is a game that requires you to think critically about the choices you make, and you must use these choices to make advancements in your own little world.

The Game Itself

You play the game as a puzzle. You are trying to unlock the puzzles to get from one stage of civilization to another. There are 399 combinations of elements in the game, and people are finding new ones every day. You will learn how to put these combinations together to make things you could not have imagined, and you will learn even more quickly that there is no easy road to progress. You can change the world in your game, but you have to do it one element at a time.

Is It Addictive?

Google and Android users seem to think this game is addictive. They have commented many times over about how easy it is to play. You will not complete the game in a few moments, but you will complete a stage of the game in a few moments. You will have to think about to get to the next stage of the game, and you must consider how you would create the materials that are needed for the game. You may not know how raw materials are used to make the things we use every day, but you will learn quickly as you find yourself Googling how these products are made. You will complete new levels as you learn about how the world works, and you will struggle to find the elements to make something that you need to move on in the game.

Overall Impression

This game is very easy to play, and it gives off the overall impression of being simple. You do not have to commit your life to this game, and you can let it stand for a few days without any problems. Alchemy requires strategy, wisdom and time to complete each level, but you will not be doomed if you stop playing for a couple days. It is the kind of game that waits around for you to come back.

Alchemy gets a solid 4 rating. This game is beautifully put together, but it is one-dimensional in that you do not go any farther than putting together elements. If even more strategic elements of the game were introduced, it may become even more addictive to its players. All the same, this is the kind of game that people love to play because it is simple. You can put this game on your phone today, pass a few levels and feel like you have truly accomplished something. That sort of gameplay is what people look for.
