When they combined Star Wars and Angry Birds, my son was in heaven! He loves playing the Angry Birds Star Wars App game on our phone and tablet so imagine his excitement when we got the Hasbro Angry Birds Star Wars Telepods game in the mail!
But this isn't just any regular game! Star Wars Telepods brings the Angry Birds Star Wars App to life with the ability to set up your own game--launching and destroying towers in your own home! Hasbro has a full line of Angry Birds Star Wars toys. We received the Angry Birds Star Wars Telepods Endor Chase set. This set contains stack-able plastic blocks, a speeder bike launcher with wheels, a launch ramp, 3 speeder bikes without wheels, an evil Biker Scout Pig, and a Luke Skywalker Bird. The game allows you to set up your own scenario, launch your Luke Skywalker on his Speeder Bike, and try and take down the evil Pig atop his perch. Honestly the directions and pictures for the physical game were a bit confusing at first. We had no problem setting things up, but when it came to launching the Speeder Bike we couldn't get it to make it up the launch ramp. Finally we ended up figuring out that you actually need to have a flat surface before the ramp which you pull the Speeder Bike on and release so that it can get momentum and then make it up the ramp. (I wish the directions and pictures were a little bit clearer about this) But once we got things figured out, we were all set for fun. My son, of course wanted to play over and over and over again which was cute. However, I had one more surprise to show him about the game...
Not only can you have lots of fun with the Angry Birds Star Wars Telepods game in a physical sense, you can also use the set for your App as well! Using the provided Telepod and the Angry Birds Star Wars characters, you can "teleport" your Pigs and Birds right into the Angry Birds Star Wars II App! That's right, you can actually interact with the App using your Hasbro Angry Birds Star Wars toys! It's lot of fun and my son was so impressed by the cool new feature!
