Tiny Death Star

The week before my exam, I made a HUGE mistake.  I downloaded Tiny Death Star.  In my defence, it was free and I couldn’t help it:

Based on something called Tiny Tower, Tiny Death Star is full of glorious 8-bit Star Wars action.  Engadget describes it much better than I could hope to:

Tiny Death Star puts you to work for the Empire as you buy, build and oversee the development of its moon-sized space station. It's the result of a partnership between Disney, LucasArts and NimbleBit, bringing together all of your favorite Star Wars characters in the familiar Tiny 8-bit style. You'll also employ 30 unique galactic "bitizens," including Wookiees and Ewoks, as you build as many as 80 residential and commercial Death Star floors. Like other freemium titles, Star Wars: Tiny Death Star uses its own in-game currency, called "Imperial Bux," which boost construction and lift time restrictions, meaning you probably won't go it Solo in your fight against the Rebels.

I can’t even explain to you how many hours I have lost to this game already.  I currently have 40 bitizens in my death star and 31 levels:

My favourite aspect of the game is Holonet, the Tiny Death Stars facebook equivalent.  The things the bitizens come up with are hilarious!!  Its also a great test of my patience because new levels take longer and longer to build.

Now excuse me while I go and restock my levels….
