Official descriptionEdit

The Empire needs your help! In collaboration with LucasArts and Tiny Tower creators NimbleBit, Disney Mobile introduces Star Wars™: Tiny Death Star™, a new game for mobile devices. Live life on the dark side and join Emperor Palpatine and Darth Vader on a mission to attract Galactic bitizens, run intergalactic businesses, and build an all-new Death Star. Construct unique Star Wars themed locations to attract iconic characters and species to your space station in this 8-bit style game. Star Wars: Tiny Death Star will soon be available worldwide.

GameplayEdit

"Lord Vader, I have a plan to fund the completion of the Death Star. Through the power of commerce, the Death Star will reach its full potential!"
―Palpatine to Darth Vader[src]

The game is an adaptation of Tiny Tower, created by NimbleBit[1]

The game starts with a small tutorial where the player creates the first level. Emperor Palpatine and Darth Vader give commands to the player. Building levels attracts "bitizens" who give the player credits to spend on buildings and products inside businesses to earn more currency. The player must also act as the turbolift driver, transporting the bitizens to their desired levels. Certain scenes are unlockable, and there are certain mini-missions such as finding Rebel infiltrators.[5]

In advance of the holidays, on December 12, 2013, the app was updated to include the chance to decorate the Death Star with new decorator droids.[5]

The app was expanded with the Imperial update on February 6, 2014, adding new missions and features.[7]

DevelopmentEdit

PromotionEdit

The official Star Wars YouTube channel released a trailer on November 8, 2013.[8]
