Star Wars: Tiny Death Star

By LucasArts

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


From Disney Mobile, in partnership with LucasArts and NimbleBit, the makers of Tiny Tower, comes an all-new mobile game about everyone’s favorite space station, STAR WARS™: TINY DEATH STAR™!

Amidst a civil war in a galaxy far, far away, the Emperor is building a Death Star level by level, and he needs your help. Intergalactic war is expensive, and space stations are, too. Do you have any idea how much it costs to build one the size of a moon?

Live life on the dark side, and join Emperor Palpatine and Darth Vader on a mission to attract Galactic bitizens, run intergalactic businesses, and build an all-new Death Star! With that hard-earned money, fund the Empire’s evil schemes to defeat the Rebels and conquer the galaxy once and for all!

With the power of the Dark Side, you’ll be able to…
BUILD THE LARGEST DEATH STAR AROUND: Earn credits to expand your Death Star, and build over 80 types of Star Wars themed residential and commercial floors like Rebo’s Karaoke and Cloud City Spa!

HIRE STAR WARS GALACTIC BITIZENS: Attract over 30 unique species including Wookiees and Ewoks, and fulfill their dream jobs! Not everyone on the Death Star wants to be the Empire’s minion; some might just want to work at the local ice cream shop…

FUEL THE EMPIRE’S EVIL SCHEMES UNDERGROUND: Below the hustle and bustle of the businesses above, build secretive, underground imperial levels to craft special supplies that will aide your Imperial troops in the fight against the Rebels.

CAPTURE REBEL SPIES: As stealthy as your Death Star development may be, expect break-ins from Rebel spies such as Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, and more! Capture them before they escape!

UNLOCK ENTERTAINING STORY MOMENTS: While running your Death Star, keep your eyes peeled for new scenes featuring many of your favorite characters like Han Solo, Chewie, Jabba the Hutt, and more.

Hurry and get on your way to building the largest, most destructive space station in the galaxy!

Customer Reviews

Tiny Death Star is awesome !

great game I've been a Star Wars fan all my life and this game is great and just keeps getting better thanks.

Just to address some negative reviews, first Facebook it took a couple of times entering my Facebook info I'm not sure if it was that or just some inherent lag in the system with connecting the game and Facebook servers either way just keep trying. After that ( the Facebook part is important to my next part I think) Any other issues I have had that didn't auto correct themselves went away with a reinstall however the Facebook part helps you get your full tower back faster (again might take more then one try) but just keep scanning rebel bases and you should be fine...I hope! Enjoy this game everyone!

Falls apart

The game starts out promising but the more you play TDS the less engaging it becomes. The money earned with progress doesn't match the increasing price of levels so there is a growing time disparity that drags the game out pointlessly. Imperial missions are also ruined by pointlessly long build times with worthless monetary pay offs. It took me three days of solid play to pass one mission for 100,000 points. My levels make more than that in 30mins. What's the point? I was really hoping this game would get better over time but it didn't.

What this game desperately needs is a ticking clock. There should be, at the very least, a penalty for not finding the rebels, like destroyed levels, or I don't know... The Death Star blowing up! It should get faster and more challenging over time not just longer and dragged out. I wouldn't recommend this game until some of these issues are addressed.

Addictive and Fun

I love Tiny Death Star! I haven't spent this much time on an iPhone game since I first got into Angry Birds. It has that "one more turn" quality akin to a Strategy game. A friendly suggestion to the Dev, the Emperor Chair spin when you enter the game is fun the first 100 times, but that should be just a little dismissible popup window within the game, not a mandatory gatekeeper slowing you from getting in. When I window out to a text message for 4 seconds I shouldn't have to watch the Emperor screen AGAIN to learn I made 10 credits while I was away lol. It's a small thing, but it's a big waste of time. Overall though, great game and I'd recommend it to any Star Wars fan.
