Star Wars: Tiny Death Star lets you run your own 8-bit world-destroyer
Have you ever wanted to run the Death Star? Let's rephrase that: have you ever wanted to be the business manager of the Death Star and make sure that there were enough workers, people were happy, spending money, and earning money for the Empire? Well, Disney is giving you the option to do just that with Star Wars: Tiny Death Star.

Tiny Death Star puts you in control of an 8-bit version of the world-destroyer. You are given the responsibility of attracting "bitizens" to live and work on the Death Star. Once you attract the individuals (from 30 different species including Ewoks and Wookies), you make sure they have jobs and are generating revenue. That money is put to use building the Death Star where you can build over 80 different kinds of residential and commercial levels. 

Beyond that core money-making scheme, this is still the Death Star, so you have to work on building supplies for the Empire's schemes, and you have to catch Rebel spies. All the while, you'll be getting story cut scenes starring well-known characters from the series. You use earn credits by selling products and services, and spend them to build more levels. 

Tiny Death Star is free-to-play, but you can purchase bux which can be used to speed up processes like building and selling. Possibly the best part of the game is that it has launched on the top 3 mobile platforms simultaneously, so you can get it if you are on Android, iOS, or Windows Phone

This game is a fun little time sink. It has a lot of grinding like more similar F2P games like this, but its worth it for the cutesy graphics and music as well as the fact that you can earn the Bux through means other than just paying, so if you dont mind putting in the time, you can get the bux without paying. Wise move, too many F2P games lock away certain items behind paywalls. Yea, the grinds can be annoying, but at least giving me the option to earn stuff without paying will make me more likely to continue playing and maybe even paying. Locking stuff away means adios, game!

Dead Trigger 2 is using the same model. Pay money for instant gratification, or just wait to get what you need. While this is marginally better then pay to play, I would rather pay a flat fee for a premium game.
