Like you, we are waiting with cautious optimism about the upcoming Star Wars: Battle of Hoth tower defense game that we previewed in May.
Star Wars: The Battle for Hoth takes place on the snow covered planet of Hoth during the massive assault on the Rebel Base at the beginning of Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back. If you've seen the movie (and if you haven't you should really stop reading this and fix that) you probably can guess the objective of the game: Defending the shield generators from the Imperial forces.
THQ Wireless has announced that the game will finally launch on July 15th with an iPad version coming in August. The game will debut at $2.99.
