Top 5 best Star Wars games for iPhone, iPad or Android (2019)
With Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, the concluding chapter of the 42-year Skywalker Saga, now out in cinemas and being dissected by fans and critics alike, it's a great time to have a good think about the very best Star Wars games for mobile.
As controversial a subject as Star Wars can be for some people, the games usually aren't all that polarising, with some of the most critically acclaimed titles of all time being set in the galaxy far, far away. For many, the games are actually more important than the films to how they enjoy these iconic characters and stories.
Star Wars games have always spanned multiple genres. Over the years, we've seen RPGs, tactical card battlers, strategy games, and even Pinball adaptations in the mix.
Sadly, we've lost many good ones over time, with Star Wars Uprising, Rivals, and Force Arena all now dead and buried. As you'll see from this here list, though, there's still no shortage of stellar Star Wars games to play.
And so, without further ado, here are the top 5 best Star Wars games for mobile.
Not only is KOTOR considered the crème of the crop when it comes to Star Wars games, it's also often held up as one of the flat-out greatest RPGs of all time.
Bioware's epic Star Wars adventure is packed full of quality characters and unforgettable moments – fit with one of the biggest story twists in video game history.
It's also aged surprisingly well for a game released all the way back in 2003, and the mobile port is a totally solid way to play. There's no excuse not to give this one a go, especially if you're a fan of the developer's more recent games, like Mass Effect and Dragon Age.
Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga
The best thing Star Wars ever gave us may well be the Lego Star Wars games, and The Complete Saga is a great way to experience them.
Traveller's Tales' titles are a terrific and fresh way to experience the classic Star Wars stories, and they're funny, accessible, and a genuine joy to play from start to finish.
Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes
Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes is one of the highest-grossing Star Wars games of them all, and for good reason. This turn-based RPG serves up plenty of quality adventuring and an all-star cast of Star Wars heroes and villains.
There's an absolute ton of content to sink your teeth into here, and the experience just keeps on growing with the release of every new film in the franchise.
Star Wars Commander
Star Wars Commander might not be the flashiest game on this here list, but it's almost certainly one of the most layered and rewarding.
Now over 5 years old, it's seen tons of gameplay tweaks and improvements over time, making it a quality Star Wars strategy game that no fan should pass up.
Angry Birds Star Wars II
Angry Birds Star Wars II is so good that you could even say it's the best Angry Birds game on mobile. Sure, it doesn't exactly reinvent the formula, but it expands on it in a number of neat ways while adding an extra level of polish to the already excellent gameplay and presentation.
At last count, there are over 50 characters to play as, making it one of the most content-packed entries in the series, and the silly Star Wars theme kicks it all up to the next level.
