Star Wars Rebels: Recon Missions - App Review

Star Wars Rebels: Recon Missions app for Apple iOS and Android is an outstandingly fun and addictive, side scrolling action shooter. Engage the evil Empire in wildly entertaining laser shootouts, complete missions, then blast off into hyperspace in your millennium Falcon style spaceship. Did I mention this one is supercalafragalistically cool and expialadoshusly fun? Well, it is. And you should probably be downloading it already. (continued)

Star Wars Rebels: Recon Missions app presents in landscape mode to deliver some scrumdiddlyumptious good fun. As the story goes, you are the rookie federation commander charged with saving the day, because there’s no better person to entrust the safety and wellbeing of the whole universe to, than a wet nosed, jittery rookie. Your objective, is to complete missions, interact with friendly allies and make short work out of Empire forces. Yup, you get to blast the crap outta some Stormtroopers in this one, and blow stuff up that’s just beggin’ to be blown up. There’s medallions to collect, hovering enemy laser droids, stuff to leap and bound with the greatest of ease, and perhaps a few Jedi mind tricks to try out, like a street performing magician from a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away.

My heart just about dropped when I saw what looked to be one of Jar Jar Binks’ long lost relative, but thankfully, they’ve disposed with the racially insensitive Rastafarian lingo and improved upon this past epic fail to deliver a tolerable character that helps you complete missions along the way. The play is rich with Star Wars mythology, both new and old. The play is energetic, lively and certainly addictive. This one is ideal for adventure gamers of all ages and skill levels, regardless of if you’re a Star Wars fan or not.

The controls use an array of functionality to deliver the goods, and all was copacetic. There’s directional arrows for lateral movement on the lower left, and a d-pad on the right that offers directional aim for your trusty blaster. And there’s alone jump button on the lower right for good measure.   The graphics are fully realized, with high quality imagery that’s rich with detail and dripping with saturation and vibrancy. This is the stuff Saturday morning cartoons are made of, and I expect no less from Disney. The animation has a lot of flash and pop to render, with hugely satisfying explosions, laser gunfire, and twinkly effects that glisten off your Retina display. Yup, all the delicious eye candy does tax your system resources, but it’s oh so worth it. The sounds feature those familiar, booming symphonic melodies synonymous to this mythology, and a rich soundscape that certainly adds urgency and imperative to the play.

Star Wars Rebels: Recon Missions app for Apple iOS and Android is some of the best fun you’ll have outside the Milky Way. This one is hugely entertaining, and visually outstanding. Aside from the occasional animation lag, there’s virtually nothing they could have done better. They even managed to improve upon that moronic Jar Jar Binks character, which is a feat unto itself. Download, play, then repeat.  Have fun!
