There’s a guilty pleasure surrounding the crew at here at Windows Phone Central. We’re addicted to Star Wars: Tiny Death Star for Windows Phone and Windows 8. The game combines Star Wars with time management gameplay. That’s the perfect recipe for addictive gameplay. Both the Windows Phone and Windows 8 version of Tiny Death Star also just picked up an update that throws in some holiday fun. Let’s check it out.
Head to the Windows Phone Store and you’ll see Tiny Death Star sitting pretty at version 220.127.116.11. While Windows 8 is hanging out at version 18.104.22.168. Update either on Windows Phone or Windows 8 and you’ll get the two following changes for the holidays:
- NEW, LIMITED-TIME VIP! Keep a lookout for the festive Imperial Decorator Droid, who will spread holiday cheer throughout the floors of your Death Star. Decorate enough levels to earn exclusive, limited-edition rewards!
- SPECIAL CHARACTER SURPRISES! Now you can deliver special characters with a question mark to any level you desire! Discover which levels will trigger special story moments for each character, and encounter other surprises along the way!
- Various bug fixes including an update to the BUX issue.(Windows Phone)
It also adds some other nice touches. For example, check out your Live tile on Windows Phone after updating to the holiday version and you’ll see some snow hanging out.
Want to get either game? They’re both free and include optional in-app purchases for you as you take over the Galaxy. Grab it in the Windows Phone Store or Windows Store. QR code below is for Windows Phone. Enjoy and happy holidays!
