Star Wars: Trench Run

Although I was never really into Star Wars (no offense geeks), I did enjoy the movies and I'm always up for a new Star Wars game. I thought this looked pretty cool.


Description:


Relive the pivotal moments of Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope on your iPhone or iPod Touch in Star Wars: Trench Run, a brand new game launching soon. Developed by Infrared5 and distributed by THQ Wireless Inc., Trench Run lets you skim the surface of the Death Star trenches as you seek to target a small thermal exhaust port less than two meters wide. Can you reenact the shot heard 'round the galaxy? Is the Force with you?
Trench Run uses simple motion controls and realistic game play to put you in the action. Tilt your iPhone or iPod touch to maneuver your X-wing. Tap one side of the screen to fire weapons, and tap the other to call on the power of the Force, which slows the action down allowing you more control. The game features two main play scenarios -- flying in the trench, and dogfighting with TIE fighters high above the Death Star surface.

Star Wars: Trench Run will be available at the iTunes store for $4.99. See below for a list of features of the iPhone / iPod Touch version:

Force Power: Slow down time and increase agility using the Force to bring TIE fighters into shooting range, and to dodge obstacles while flying down the trench.
Breathtaking 3D Experience: Incredible 3-D graphics based on the original Star Wars movie.
Amazing Special Effects: Vivid lighting, advanced shaders, explosions and incredible lifelike models.
Authentic Star Wars Music and Sound Effects: Combined with real movie footage for complete immersion into the Star Wars universe.

Optimized Gaming Experience: To work on the 3G, with special graphical features for the 3GS, iPod Touch 2nd Gen and future devices.
Leader Boards: Players compete against others across the world for the top spot. Find out who are the true Jedi.

I get the impression that it will be sooner rather than later.

Looks straight out of Rebel Assault, or various other Star Wars games... could be fun.

I like this game, but they could do much better. A good Star Wars game? How about they bring Battlefront?

First game in progress...
