20 new levels added to Angry Birds Star Wars
took only 2.5 hours to hit the top of the iTunes charts when it was released earlier this month. The continuing popularity of the game fits perfectly with Rovio's goal to become the next Disney and is in sharp contrast to the falling popularity of some of Zynga's mobile games like "Draw Something".
Rovio quite possibly has discovered a method to keep this franchise alive forever. In the great Disney tradition, Rovio has splashed its characters all over the place, from towels to t-shorts to thermos kits. This way, new generations of Angry Birds fans are born, taught in the ways of the game by their older siblings or parents. Why, it almost sounds like the continuing fervor for Star Wars, which ironically, is now a Disney franchise.

Angry Birds: Star Wars is okay but Angry Birds in general is hard for me to play because i've got to get three stars before i let myself pass a level and my frequent-ish switching of phones of course means i lose my progress and that's discouraging but right now i do intend for my MAXX HD to last me a good, long while so i may just have to set down one day with Jack and Geoff from Achievement Hunter and get caught up on these. o:
