“We’ve really pushed the capabilities of Apple’s mobile devices with Star Wars: Trench Run,” said Chris Allen, CEO of Infrared5. “The graphics are like a console game, and the controls are so responsive it really feels like you are Luke Skywalker flying an X-wing, attempting to take down the Death Star single-handedly. I can’t tell you how excited we are to see it go live, and get feedback on what other Star Wars fans think of the game.”

About the Star Wars: Trench Run Game

Mission: Use the Force to destroy the Death Star before it can fire upon the small Rebel base on Yavin’s jungle moon. As part of the Rebel Alliance’s Red Squadron, players dogfight with TIE fighters above the Death Star’s surface, dodging obstacles and laser-fire as they maneuver into position to target a small thermal exhaust port the size of a womp rat. If successful, a direct hit will cause a chain reaction that will destroy the Death Star, thus saving the Rebel base from impending doom.
