Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II now available for Mac

Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic II

Ten years after its original release on the Xbox, Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords is now available for Mac OS X. You're welcome, Apple fans. The sequel to the hit game from Obsidian Entertainment is considered one of the best Star War titles ever released. Star Wars Knights was ported to the Mac as part of the Restored Content Mod project, which means that the this version comes with a bunch of new features:

Star Wars: Galactic Defense Now Available for the iPad

DeNA's free-to-play Star Wars game is now available for iOS devices. Star Wars: Galactic Defense is a tower defense title where players can choose to play as either the light or dark side. The game features pretty standard tower defense game play, where players have three towers and one champion to defend their base. Players can also connect with Facebook to exchange resources with their friends.

Star Wars: Galactic Defense

The game includes all the standard Star Wars characters such as Han Solo and Yoda. You begin the game with Luke Skywalker as your champion and can unlock others as you advance through the game. There are a total of 18 Rebel and 18 Galactic Empire champions to unlock.

Star Wars: Commander Now Available for Free on the Apple App Store

Disney has finally released Star Wars: Commander to the U.S. App Store. The new Star Wars title was originally soft launched in Australia a few months ago. Unfortunately the game is a free-to-play, base building title much like Clash of Clans. This means it is full of timers and in-app purchases instead of anything fun.

Star Wars: Commander

The game includes the usual features found in most timer-based strategy titles. The only twist on the genre is that players can choose to join either the Empire or the Rebellion. Players can then train troops, build defenses and team up with other players to attack other bases. Here's the official description:

"During a time of Galactic Civil War, competing forces need allies for their cause. The Rebellion rallies for justice and freedom, while the Empire seeks control of the galaxy. Where does your allegiance lie? Will you side with the Empire’s strength and relentlessness, or the Rebellion’s heroism and resourcefulness? The choice is yours!"

Control the Star Wars Universe On Your iPad

There is no shortage of Star Wars games for iOS devices, but that hasn't stopped Disney from releasing Star Wars Scene Maker to the App Store. The app allows users to create their own Star Wars scenes by choosing from a variety of 3D environments, characters and ships inspired by the hit franchise.

Users can even record their own voices with Darth Vader, Rebel Pilot, or Storm Trooper filters or use dialogue straight from the films. Other features include the ability to switch between three cameras for multiple scene angles, the option to use original musical from the films, and the ability to write your own title crawl and closing credits.

Konami Unleashes the Force on the iPad

Konami has released the first Star Wars collectible card game for iOS devices. The Star Wars Force Collection features 230 characters and vehicles from Star Wars Episodes I-VI. Players must collect and upgrade individual cards to build a competitive deck in order to defeat other players in online strategic battles.

Players can earn more cards by recruiting allies, completing quests and defeating bosses. They can then use these cards to battle other players on "exotic planets" featured from the Star Wars universe.
