Angry Birds: Star Wars II is the second Angry Birds game based on the Star Wars franchise, but where the first adapted the original trilogy to the Angry Birds game format, this one tackles the prequel trilogy.
The gameplay mechanics are essentially the same as with the first game, the player must use a catapult to launch the birds, with the appearance of Star wars characters, at the bad pigs (dressed up as various enemies, depending on the level) in order to remove them from the level. Players are awarded points on how few birds they use to take them out, as well as how many obstacles destroyed as well. There are 30+ characters featured that are unlocked throughout the story mode, each with their own powers. Once players have completed the first several levels of each chapter, they also unlock the Pork Side, with tells the story from the point of view of the Sith Pigs.
Players can also use Hasbro Telepod technology with their Android/iPod/iPhone cameras to scan a QR code that allows them to teleport a bird or pig into a level, but only once per level.
