As a Star Wars fan and as a big, big fan of tower-defense games, I am quite glad to announce that Disney will soon roll out a Star Wars-inspired tower-defense game for iOS and Android Star Wars: Galactic Defense.

“Experience the Star Wars universe as an elite tower defense force in the free mobile game Star Wars: Galactic Defense. This game propels the traditional tower defense genre into a galaxy far, far away by seamlessly blending iconic characters, adrenaline-fueled battles, and strategic gameplay into an exciting one of a kind mobile experience,” says the official Star Wars: Galactic Defense website.

A release date for Star Wars: Galactic Defense has not been disclosed. But if you visit the official website and pre-register, you will be notified when the tower-defense game becomes available for download on Apple’s App Store and Google Play.

UPDATE October 31, 2014: the game has been rolled out to the App Store, Google Play, and Amazon.



Disney, company that acquired Lucasfilm for about $4 billion back in 2012, is trying to squeeze as much money as it can from the Star Wars franchise. So far, the company rolled out several Star Wars-inspired mobile games.

Star Wars: Tiny Death Star (for iOS and Android)

This is an 8-bit simulation game that tasks you with helping the Emperor and Darth Vader build the Death Star. You must find the money to fund the Empire’s war against the Rebels.



Star Wars: Commander (for iOS and Android)

This is an action-packed strategy game that tasks you with building a base, recruiting an army, and leading epic battles against players across the Star Wars universe. If you’re familiar with Clash of the Clans (for iOS and Android), then all I’m going to say is that Star Wars: Commander is very similar to this popular game.



Star Wars: Assault Team (for iOS and Android)

In this turn-based combat game you must assemble a team of your favorite Star Wars heroes and lead said team into battle. Defeat galactic enemies, infiltrate enemy fleets, battle it out against other players.



So to recap, Disney has an 8-bit simulation game, an action-packed strategy game, and a turn-based combat game based on Star Wars. Sometime “later this year”, Disney will also release a tower-defense game based on Star Wars.

UPDATE, October 2014: Disney pulled Tiny Death Star and Star Wars: Assault Team.
