Star Wars Uprising, the new Diablo clone sitting atop the iTunes charts, could more appropriately be titled Star Wars: Uninspiring. The game is competent. That’s about it.

Check out the video to see it in action.

As with many so-called free mobile games, you get what you pay for. In this case, you get a decent-looking but bland riff on Diablo, a loot-collecting, equipment-upgrading brawler with Star Wars blaster sounds, hyperdrive star streaks and occasional references to Hutts. And as with many so-called free mobile games, you can play it slowly or pay to get better loot and proceed more quickly. It’s… not great.

But!

Star Wars + Diablo could be good, and even a bland version of it could be for you. Take a look and decide for yourself. Or try it out via the iTunes store or Google Play.

One thing you won’t see in the video that you should know: it does support real-time co-op.
