Star Wars: Trench Run Coming to an iPhone Near You

With Star Wars: Trench WarsTHQ Wireless is finally giving all of the Star Wars fans what seems to be a quality game based off of the classic films. To us it looks like a nice remake of the classic Star Wars arcade game.

Use the Force to overthrow the evil Galactic Empire as they attempt to destroy the small Rebel base on Yavins jungle moon. As part of the Rebel Alliances Red Squadron you dogfight with TIE Fighters above the Death Stars surface before heading into a trench where you are inundated by cannon fire. Dodge obstacles, and stay out of Darth Vaders sights as he tries to gun you down before you have the chance to fire your proton torpedoes into a thermal exhaust port the size of a womp rat. If successful, a direct hit will cause a chain reaction that destroys the Death Star, thus saving the Rebel base from impending doom.

While no price or exact release date has been given, the game is showing promise. I've grown up a fan of the Star Wars films and yes, the last three films were unfortunate but hopefully games like this will make us all feel a little bit better. Maybe?

All I'm going to say is there better be some of the great dialogue between pilots. "Stay on target . . . stay on target . . ."

Im SW fan of the first order and I did like 1,2 and 3. Of course they weren't as magical as 4,5 and 6 but then I wasn't as young as I was the first time.

I happen to really like the recent movies. Episode I wasn't great, but I thought it set the stage well. I really liked Episodes II and III. And I remember seeing both 'Empire Strikes Back' and 'Return of the Jedi' in the theater when they came out. (I also had the Burger King collector glasses.)

My opinion of Ep. 1 is that if they would have dialed back Jar Jar and Anakin's acting, the movie and other performances are decent. Oh who am I kidding--inside I long to tweak the prequels to make them less WTF-ey.

I'm following the death star on Twitter, this is what he had to say about this: death_star: I don't approve of these violent video games.They're nothing more than murder simulators! Think of the children!

Ron Jeremy says all you star war nerds are really never going to come outta the basement now. More women for Ron Jeremy to diddle. Thankyou iPhone.
