Introduction
So Angry Birds Star Wars is on the WP, with 20, comparatively speaking, mind numbingly easy, albeit long, achievements. The game doesn't differ much from the others, you'll see the original Star Wars characters replacing the conventional birds waging war on the Empire who look suspiciously snouty.

Step 1: Progress To Level 2-29
Make your way through the game until you reach this level. Don't worry about collecting stars, points or anything else at this point. But i will say read the achievement guide first, it will make Step 2 shorter. You may earn some achievements along the way.

The purpose of this step is to unlock all required characters and levels which make getting the other achievements much easier.

Step 2: Grinding
This, sadly, is the bulk of the achievements. The guide below will detail how and where to knock these out.To add salt to the wound there is no way to track ANY achievements.

Step 3: Idleing
Here you will be changing the settings on your phone, placing it on charge, and letting the game accumulate played hours.

Conclusion
Not a difficult achievement list, but is an easy and fun 100'ish but will require patience to gain all the achievements. It may sound as if i resented playing the game, but that's far from it. At 0.79/$0.99 and 200 it's a steal

Jedi Initiate 10
50 blocks smashed with saber

See "Jedi Master" for details

Jedi Knight 10
500 blocks smashed with saber
See "Jedi Master" for details

Jedi Master 10
2000 blocks smashed with saber

This achievement and ones that led you here are self explanatory. You gain the lightsaber in 1-9. It is given to your red bird and can be used by tapping the screen after you've catapulted the bird.

Grind Spot: Quickest way for me was Level 1-1. Throw first bird, swing saber on impact and then restart the level asap. Whole cycle nets around 5 bricks for <5 seconds.

Force Learner 10
2000 blocks threw with force

You'll unlock the Black Bird in 1-5, and he has the ability to use a force push-esque move in the direction you choose. This can only be used in flight.

Grind Spot: Level 1-5. The quickest way seems to be smash the first set of blocks with force push at it's base, and they will knock over the latter blockades. Then pause and restart the level. You can gain 10-14 blocks every 5 seconds or so.*

*When you get to 2-26 you gain a better force push, it's ideal to return to 1-5 when you have it.

Ultimate Laser Shooter 10
1000 blocks smashed with laser

This bird will unlock in 1-17, and fires 3 laser shots in the direction you choose whilst in flight.

Grind Spot: Level 1-18. Try and shoot the wooden beams instead of the metal ones as they break much quicker. Once you've used all 3 birds just pause and restart.

Skilled Pilot 10
500 blocks smashed with Pilot

This bird unlocks in 2-1, and like the other games, will multiply when you tap the screen.

Grind Spot: Level 2-1. Shoot them off on the underside of the planet then tap again to split them up and destroy the ice block fortification. Do the same with the next bird and you'll hit the 2nd ice tower this time. Pause then restart.

Magnificent Grumble 10
300 blocks smashed with Chewbacca

This bird unlocks in 2-12

Grind Spot: Level 2-11. Loads of blocks and Chewie x3. You can usually smash 95% of blocks with 2 Chewies, but use a third if necessary. Then hit pause and restart.

Prominent Jedi 10
Three lasers deflected with saber

When you first encounter the laser shooting pig troopers is the best to get this achievement. Examine the path of the bullets and fling your bird so he is just underneath them in flight. Let him go and when he is directly under the middle bullet tap the screen and you'll hit all 3 of the laser bullets. Lightsaber is unlocked in level 1-9.

Target Shooter 10
Three pigs shot with a single blaster shot

First easiest spot is 2-29. Fling the bird and on his ascent/descent he will be level with the 3 pigtroopers for about 0.5 secs. Tap the first pig and your 3 lasers should kill all 3 pigs. Just remember you need to actually hit the pigs and not the columns they are on.

Star Bird Fan 10
Angry Birds Star Wars played for 5 hours

See "Star Bird Addict" for details

True Star Bird Fan 10
Angry Birds Star Wars played for 15 hours

See "Star Bird Addict" for details

Star Bird Addict 10
Angry Birds Star Wars played for 30 hours

This achievement and the others that led you here may be the last you unlock. The time you are actually in the level is counted for this achievement, not when in menus etc.

I have a HTC 8X, so i went to settings > System Settings > Lock Screen > Screen Time-Out. Then i changed the duration to never. Load any level of AB:SW and then stick your phone on charge and let it idle away while you sleep or do anything else. When you're ready to return just finish/fail the level to bank your time.

Before i submit the guide to the main site i would like some information about other devices for this achievement. Where to go to disable screen savers and stuff, for the Surface, Nokia and other devices.

Fly Bird Fly 10 5000 birds launched

Very simple achievement, and may be your last. Just load any level and fling birds until this pops. Level 2-40 has 5 birds at the start. If you are that far into the game then go for it, but i didn't think it was time efficient to get that far just to gain an extra bird.

There's No-one Here 10
Stormtrooper shot another trooper

Grind Spot: Level 1-13. The trooper will be on a column but also on a harness. Destory his column and he'll lose accuracy and 90% of the time will shoot another trooper.

Imperial Entanglement 10
Stormtrooper popped with Tie Fighter's wing

For this you need to just knock a TIE fighter in a regular pigtrooper.

Grind Spot: Level 2-9. Shoot your first bird through the top gravitational field, just so it goes through it right near the top. Once you exit the field tap the screen and your bird will multiply. The bird on the top should hit the TIE fighter softly and then push him into a pigtrooper unlocking your achievement.

Walking Carpet 10
Same turret shot Chewbacca 6 times

You will start using Chewie on level 2-11. However i tried and tried to get this achievement but i couldn't on this level.

It unlocked on 2-12 for me. He's the first bird you use, so just fling him through the obvious gap (You'll know when you see it) and he'll land right in the path of the laser. As this laser is burst fire (x3 each shot) you'll only need to be hit twice (2 x3 shots).

I think this is better than the previous level as it's shorter and there's less chance of the turret killing itself with bullet deflections

Simple Pigs and Nonsense 10
300 stormtroopers popped

Self explanatory. Very easy achievement and will unlock before the end of Tatooine.

The Birds Will Be With You 10
10 levels completed with one bird

Pretty self explanatory. Eliminate all the pigs by just shooting one bird, on 10 different levels.

The first bunch of levels are the easiest, but working toward the other achievements will most probably unlock this one too. If not, you can search for 3-Star videos on Youtube, as gaining 3 stars on the level usually means using only 1 bird.

Lack of Faith 10
Level restarted 100 times

You shouldn't need to grind this achievement, by the end of Tatooine i had this achievement. This isn't for starting the same level 100 times, it is cumulative and at any time you press pause and then restart it will count toward this achievement.

Pork side of the Force 10
Level failed 10 times with one pig left

May or may not pop through general gameplay.
Grind Spot: Level 1-1. Shoot all birds behind you. You have to wait for the pig Vadar to appear with the "Level Failed" text.

for the "Fly Bird Fly" achievement any level better than the rest for grinding this?

Also any idea if you launch a "Pilot" and he splits into 3 birds if that counts for any more than 1 birds?

This is my last achievement that I'm grinding on my WP8 and it's takin a while...

Also on my Nokia Lumia 920 I started AB:SW and then locked the screen and set it on the charger over night for 2 nights in a row. Plus instead of backing out of the game I just hit the windows/home button to go back to the home screen which, if you hold the back button to see all active apps, allows the game to idle in the background. I got the 30hrs achievement in 2 days... just played a few games on the second morning and it popped.

can confirm the above is working on my 8x as well, just had the 15hr one pop and I've barely played it. Just menu button out of it without pausing, as long as it's in the fast switching list it'll still be counting I reckon.

nice work on the guide btw

I think when the bird splits each bird counts as one. As there's no way i launched 500 individual pilots. As for fly bird fly, any level with 4 starting birds is the best. Not much more to be done with that i'm afraid. Levrl 2-40 does have 5 starting birds, but i didn't think it was time efficient to progress that far into the game

The longest I can set the Lock Screen Screen Time-Out on my Nokia L920 is 5 minutes.

For the 5, 15, 30 hour achievements I don't think you actually have to have the display on. On my Lumia 920 I would pick the first mission and then just lock the phone and after awhile I would just check it to make sure it didn't crash. After the required time I would go back and finish the level and I got the 5 and 15 hour achievements. Just need to grind out the 30 hours now.

On my 8X when i lock the phone the game will pause. I'm not 100% as to whether it counts when it's paused, so i think leaving it on with the charger is better to be safe than sorry.

Yeah it paused for me too since I would go back and i would have to hit play but I still got the achievements. I read it worked for someone else as well so I think more people just to need confirm to truly know. Figured I would just let you guys know what worked for me.

Weird. I also have the 8X and the longest I can set the lock screen time out is 5 minutes. There is no option for "never". I can confirm that the achievements will still unlock even with the screen locked.

FWIW, I found 1-19 to be a great spot to get this achievement. I haven't gotten to 2-29 yet, and your description sounds super easy - but it only takes a few tries to get the aiming right in 1-19 (and all that counts toward other achievements as well). Doing this means you only have to go to 2-12 according to your guide.
