For those who have played Clash Royale or even newer games like Auto Chess and Chess Rush, you will definitely find lots of similarities with LEGO Star Wars Battles. The mechanics for the game are generally simple and easily manageable yet the players are still encouraged to establish the most effective strategy to maximize their chances in winning. Generally, here’s how LEGO Star Wars Battles works. You start the game with all the training missions to get you familiarized with the process. As soon as you start your first regular mission, the game will prompt you to the battlefield or the arena. You select which faction you want to play with, the Light Side or the Dark Side.
Once the battle commences, you can start deploying your troops or your champions. Take note that you need a certain number of energy to deploy a unit. The energy bar located on the lowermost portion of the game screen will indicate the amount of energy available. Interestingly, the energy bar will refill over time. The required number of energy will depend on the type of units you want to deploy. Champions tend to require more and they also possess special skills which also requires you to consume a certain amount of energy. Players can also build defensive towers on predefined areas to prevent enemies from breaking through. To win, you must eliminate the enemy base or if not, the players with the most number of medals within the limited time frame will win the battle.
Upgrade Champions and Units
To make your team more efficient in the battle, it is necessary to upgrade your character cards. All missions have guaranteed rewards and most of which are in the form of character cards. It is also interesting to mention that players have the option to play either of the two factions. There are missions where you play as the Light Side and there are other missions where you play with the Dark Side. You will get most of your basic cards from the Training missions. For the Light Side, you will acquire Luke Skywalker as your first legendary champion while Dark Side will give you Darth Vader as the legendary counterpart.
There are different cards in LEGO Star Wars Battles and they will vary in terms of their main function as well as their rarity. Champion Cards are your heroes that can use powerful skills while Ground Units are troops you can deploy on the ground. You can also acquire Air Units and Towers. To Upgrade the units and champions, you must collect enough character cards. For example, you have collected enough Porgs cards, you can upgrade the character to increase its basic attributes such as Damage, health, Speed, DPS, Attack Speed, and Count. Every time you perform an upgrade, you will also get additional EXP points and if you have earned enough, you will gain a new level.
Unlock More Cards
Aside from upgrading your characters, the key to winning this game is to unlock more champion and units. You can only do so by exploring other planets. The first planet you can explore is the planet Naboo but eventually, you can unlock other locations. These locations are derived from the actual fictional planets from the Star Wars franchise such as Takodana, Endor, Geonosis, Scarif, Hoth and more. Of course, Star Wars fans will find it fascinating to see their beloved Star Wars characters (in their LEGO version). Characters like Yoda, Chewbacca, R2-D2, Boba Fett, Jar Jar Binks, and more will become part of your growing team soon.
Since this is a relatively new game, some areas are still under development, you can see some pages that are tagged as “Under Construction”. However, you can still take advantage of other accessible features like Daily Challenges and daily login bonuses which grant you valuable rewards in the form of gems, money or even a new character card. The clan system is also expected to arrive in the game’s future development.
LEGO Star Wars Battles is indeed a great game with so much potential to it. It is simple yet fun and surprisingly addictive. Since you are dealing with a real-time online opponent, the result of the battle is always unpredictable which gives this game a remarkable replay value. Appearance-wise, the game comes with visually stunning graphics and is complemented with impressive music and audio effects. In fact, the music changes depending on which faction you are using but both of which are inspired by the real music score used by the Star Wars Franchise. If you are a big fan of Star Wars, this game is definitely something you can confidently download on your mobile. Currently, LEGO Star Wars Battles is only available for Android devices. Good luck and have fun!
