Star Wars: Galactic Defense borrows heavily from other tower defence games in the genre to deliver a solid Star Wars themed strategy game. With all your favourite units and heroes it’s easy to get attached to the game as you fight over planets in tower defence style.


Available on both iOS and Android devices the game lets players side with both the light and dark side of the force that come with their own mirrored arsenals. While for the most part this is a purely cosmetic choice there are a small number of units that can dramatically influence your strategy which does give each side some limited uniqueness.

All your favourites are there with the likes of Yoda, Luke Skywalker (good and evil), Darth Vader, Princess Lei, Lando Calrissian, General Grievous, Jango Fett and countless others. Similar to Kingdom Rush these heroes will bring their presence to the field with their own strengths, weaknesses and abilities which will increase as you use them in battle. With the ability to take 3 of your favourites into battle there is a lot of strategy in your hero choice alone.

Battles take place across the galaxy and ply out in traditional tower defence style with players placing towers at key locations to stop an onslaught of enemies down a predetermined path. Each level slowly introduces new towers and upgrades along with powerful cards for you to call down support.


To extend the experience beyond solo play the game does include some Facebook connectivity options that allow you to connect with your friends and challenge them. It’s a nice little inclusion but doesn’t hold much depth without a large group of friends to compete against.

Star Wars: Galactic Defense offers a solid gameplay experience and doesn’t do anything wrong, it’s just that it doesn’t do anything great.
