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