Star Wars: Tiny Death Star

If you're a Star Wars fan who wonders what's actually inside that giant Death Star, now you can find out.

In "Star Wars: Tiny Death Star," gamers start off with the Emperor talking to Darth Vader about wanting to build the ultimate weapon, but Vader is concerned they just don't have the finances for it. So the Emperor offers up a solution: Rather than make it a tool entirely geared toward evil, take advantage of the prime commercial real estate they'll be creating.

Your job is to build the Death Star, floor by floor, starting with an apartment complex, followed up by a cafe. As you build more floors for entertainment and shopping, eventually you'll build some for defeating the good guys. You'll lure bitizens, or beings of the universe, to move into your Death Star, shop and work there in order to help generate revenue to build more levels.

As you complete the emperor's tasks you'll also unlock certain treats like little Star Wars animations. "Star Wars: Tiny Death Star" is a free app for iOS, Android and Windows devices. There are also in-app purchases you can make though to help speed your way through the game.
