THQ Wireless announced Star Wars: The Battle for Hoth for iPhone and iPod Touch is now available for download on iTunes for $2.99. In the game, players assume the role of the commander of the Rebel forces as they defend the shield generators from the Imperial ground troops. With 15 levels, two game modes and two difficulty settings, plus a help and unit guide, the strategy game challenges players to properly place defensive units in order to stop waves of enemy units from destroying the generators. Star Wars: The Battle for Hoth was developed by Fluffy Logic.
“Just in time for the 30th anniversary celebration of The Empire Strikes Back, Star Wars: The Battle for Hoth offers an exciting, strategic gaming experience for fans of the original Star Wars series,” said Adam Comiskey, Vice President, THQ Wireless.
In this epic strategy game, players can relive the intense battle action of The Empire Strikes Back as they take control of the Rebel troops that are trying to protect the base from wave after wave of Imperial forces. In Star Wars: Battle for Hoth, players must also strategically position soldiers, ion cannons and other defending units to maneuver the Imperial forces into kill-zones. As the game progresses, additional unit types become available, such as snowspeeders, X-wings and more.
