    This is like a SimTower type game?

    Kinda sounds like the canceled Lucasarts game Death Star. I wonder if Disney resurrected it?

    From the Kotaku article.

    It's a licenced version of this, I'm guessing;

    So this is what the new Battlefront will look like.

    Respect for Bossk being there, that's reason enough for me to check it out.

    This game is the worst. Seriously tired of these timed things.

    I've been messing around with it for a bit; the only reason why I downloaded it was because it's Star Wars. It's ok for what it is, I suppose. While I'm a pretty avid gamer, I loathe cell phone games. From the short amount of time I've played it, I can tell it'll become pretty repetitive.

    The game is a pretty good indication of future Star Wars video games in the Disney era. In depth, big budgeted games will be licensed out, at the current moment, EA, and mobile gaming ("casual") will be handled mostly by Disney Interactive. The 10 person or so skeleton crew at LucasArts will deal with licensing issues, legalities, and I assume certain levels of quality control (for example, providing developers with information regarding planets, characters, etc).

    For those wondering, yes, the LucasArts logo does appear in the game and during the pre-game credit sequences.

    I've been playing for the past 30 minutes. It's pretty addicting IMO.

    A friend of mine works for Disney Mobile and worked on this game. I normally don't play games on my phone but he encouraged me so I tried it out this past weekend. I'm now hopelessly addicted. :p

    So I don't get the purpose of the Imperial levels. They aren't earning me credits and I keep sending workers down to make interrogation (rebel secrets) and blast door (security codes) items. Am I missing something?

    At level 0 there is a hologram of Vader. Tap him and you will see a list of Imperial items to build as well as what your reward for building them will be.

    I have 15 floors and 3 Imperial Levels. I have $26 bux saved up. Should I upgrade my elevator which doubles the tip for $25 bux or should I wait?

    Upgraded my elevator. Worth it!

    Anyone else loving this game as much as me? I'm up to 22 floors and 5 Imperial levels. I've upgraded to the elevator that triples the tip amount. My current goal is to give every bitizen his/her dream job and evict everyone else which I've accomplished between levels 2 through 11. When I get a level mover, I move up my apartments or my businesses down. Probably not the best strategy, but I like having all my businesses in a row so I can quickly stock them.

    EDIT: FYI, there is a mission from the Emperor to have 30 bitizen(s). You don't get the reward until you get the 31st bitizen.

    What is the purpose of the level mover? I could understand moving a popular business up to the top, but there seems to be no rhyme or reason as to which floor Bitizens want to visit.

    Yeah I don't think there is any reason other than organizational purposes. I see no incentive to have a business up high or down low for maximizing credits.

    Gah the game sunk its claws into me. I don't know why but I'm actually enjoying myself now that some of the grind for bux is alleviated.

    I've been playing pretty much every day for two weeks now. Still loving it. I have 39 levels, 55 bitizens, and upgraded my elevator to the one that gives you 4x the tip amount.

    I have a lot of places with 3 stars, a few with 2 and a couple with 1. The only two places currently that don't have any stars are Dark Side Cave and Imperial Grocer. It feels like I've evicted 10 Technicians to make room for bitizens with the dream jobs I want.

    Strategy I’m using to earn bux: I have three level 9 dream job bitizens working at Holochess Hall so that level is golden. Sometimes I’ll get a random bitizen with that as his dream job. I’ll temporarily un-employ one of the level 9ers just to give that guy his dream job, then evict him and re-employ the bitizen I temporarily unemployed.

    It is a very addictive little game. Does get a bit repetitive but I like it a lot.

    Fun for the first 4 hours, then each level starts costing a ridiculous amount of money and you have to wait literally hours.... Very boring, but fun at first.
