‘Star Wars: Trench Run’ Coming Soon To The App Store

Star Wars fans who were underwhelmed by THQ’s last Star Wars title will be happy to hear that a new game, Star Wars: Trench Run, is coming soon to the App Store. Trench Run puts you in the seat of an X-Wing fighter pilot for the epic Death Star battle in Star Wars: Episode IV. The game relies mainly on tilt controls to fly your X-Wing down the Death Star’s trench. Tapping on one side of the screen fires weapons, and tapping on the other side allows you to use the force.
