Star Wars: Assault Team is a new game launched in the Windows Store by LucasArts and it’s the second game released by the company after the recently updated Star Wars Tiny Death Star. If you are passionate about the StarWars cultural phenomenon, you can also have a look at the Star Wars Almanac app for Windows 8 users, as well. As for this new Windows 8 Star Wars game, it is available as a free download (link at the end) and has a size of less than 40 megabytes. It’s filed as a RPG title, since the moves are per turn.
I have been playing the game for a few good minutes on my Windows 8.1 tablets, and can say that it’s a pretty cool title for the lovers of the Star Wars series where Indian Jones plays the smuggler Han Solo. You start with him as the central hero, but as you progress throughout the game, you will be able to play with Luke Skywalker, Boba Fett, Tusken Raiders and others. Each one of them has its unique skill and as you acquire more points, in the true style of a RPG, you get to upgrade your character to a new level.
