'Angry Birds Star Wars' breaks record for downloads

Rovio has announced this week that the new 'Angry Birds Star Wars' soared to the top of the iOS App Store in just 2.5 hours, breaking Rovio's own previous records.
The game launched on the 8th after a brief teaser period in which the company showed off gameplay demos.

Making it more impressive is the fact that the game is not free for iOS, like it is for Android. For iPhone it costs 99 cents and for iPad it costs $2.99 for the HD version, which is perfectly scaled for whatever sized iPad you own.

Rovio has kept the same foundation that has made Angry Birds a hit but added Luke and Leia in action, special attacks like lightsabers and laser shots and given the enemies some extra powers, (the pigs have weapons), with their areas being able to shoot projectiles. Of course, besides the characters, there are popular Star Wars locations, including Hoth and Tatooine.
