LEGO Star Wars travels to an iOS device not so far, far away

If you've yet to experience the adorableness that is LEGO Star Wars, or if you have but wanted to take the experience on the go without needing a dedicated handheld gaming device, good news: LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga is now available for iOS devices. Better news: it's free - kind of.

The game features 120 characters and 36 levels, though only the story mode of Episode 1: The Phantom Menace is free to play. Other levels and features must be purchased in-game, either individually or in bundles. The Complete Saga is $14.99, while the Prequel Trilogy Bundle and Original Trilogy Bundles are $4.99 each. Whatever you buy, just be wary of anyone trying to sell you Death Sticks.
