Rebels is a new Windows Phone game from Disney that is based on the Star Wars Rebels television series. As one might guess, you are tasked with several missions that pits you against the evil Empire.

There are some entertaining and challenging Star Wars games but some rather obvious omissions. Hopefully that will change.
