Star Wars: Tiny Death Star is out now for mobile


I love how Emperor Palpatine looks like a pufferfish
Nov 07
Seeing familiar Star Wars characters in this cutesy pixelated style from NimbleBit is enough to cut down any cynicism I might've had going into Star Wars: Tiny Death Star. We've enjoyed the studio's sim games for a while now... read

I sense much TILT in you...
Back in February, Zen Studios released three tables based on the Star Wars series, adding to the already vast library of tables for Pinball FX2. They were fantastic, diverse, and just as feature-rich as the other tables for the game. Many believed it would be hard for the studio to match that collection.

Deal with it. read feature
