By now, we all know and love the Angry Birds franchise. Slingshots, crashes, and those dastardly pigs. Well, last week, the latest installment of Angry Birds hit the app stores, and it won't disappoint its fans.

Angry Birds: Star Wars mixes the classic, land-bound versions of Angry Birds with the more recent Angry Birds: Space. But one thing always stays the same, you're flinging birds at those pigs again and leaving a general path of destruction, this time it's just in a galaxy far, far away. In Angry Birds: Star Wars, the birds take the form of the famous characters of the "Star Wars" movie franchise.

Swing a light saber with the Luke Skywalker bird, use the force with the Obi-Wan Kenobi bird and clear entire levels in one fell swoop of the Millennium Falcon. Angry Birds loyalists will notice that the Millennium Falcon and the level-clearing eagles of earlier games work in very similar ways. R2D2 and C3PO even showcase their talents in Angry Bird form.

This game definitely does not disappoint. It mixes the classic versions of Angry Birds, the gravity-bending physics of Angry Birds: Space and the characters and scenes of one of the most beloved science fiction film franchises of all time. Angry Birds: Star Wars is a must-play for "Star Wars" and Angry Birds fans alike. Our advice: use the force.

Angry Birds Star Wars is available for $0.99 in the iTunes App Store HERE and for free in the Google Play store HERE.
