Today, Warner Bros. Entertainment has released a new shooting game on iTunes called LEGO Star Wars: Microfighters. You take control of the new Microfighters ships, which will be released here in the US very soon, and blast your way through 18 levels spread out on four planets: Endor, Yavin, Hoth, and Geonosis. You can choose between the six different types of ships including the TIE fighter, X-wing, Star Destroyer, Droid ATT, Millennium Falcon, and Clone Tank. It has a similar vertical scrolling look like older games such as the Raiden series. You can collect studs to spend on upgrades for your Microfighter. The app only costs $1.29 and is available for devices with iOS 6.0 or later such as iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. Like many other LEGO related games, Android devices will have to wait a little longer for its release. Check out the official press release below as well as more screenshots of the game.
