Angry Birds Star Wars is just like every other Angry Birds game on the market. You use a slingshot to fire the birds across the level with the goal of defeating the well-fortified pigs. The game does differentiate itself from the rest as the birds you control are actually modeled after Star Wars characters. You can launch Luke Skywalker across the level with his light saber in hand, or send Chewbacca flying as a battering ram, plus many more! The game's 80 levels loosely follow the plot line of Episode IV. The Star Wars theme actually meshes well with the Angry Birds franchise and this may just be the best installment yet. Currently the game is listed at $0.99 in the Windows Phone Store.

Step 1: Play through all 80 levels
Play through all 80 levels of the game. Do not worry about getting stars on the levels as there are no achievements directly related to them. Many of the miscellaneous achievements will unlock without trying. If you are having trouble with a particular level, see THIS link for some video walkthroughs of the levels (remember, ignore getting stars).

Step 2: Mop-up miscellaneous achievements
After completing all levels, mop-up any of the miscellaneous achievements you may have missed.

Step 3: Grind remaining cumulative achievements
After Steps 1 and 2, you will have a few hours of grinding to do in order to earn all of the cumulative achievements.

Step 4: Leave the game running for 30 hours total
Your final task will be running your play time up to 30 hours. After completing all other achievements, you will likely be around 10 hours played, so you will need to grind about 20 hours. 

Angry Birds Star Wars offers the easiest completion among any of the 3 currently available Angry Birds games and is arguably the best one. At just $0.99, this should be a must purchase for any Windows Phone 8 owner.

Jedi Master10
2000 blocks smashed with saber   

For these three achievements you need to smash a total of 2000 blocks with the light saber. The blocks need to be completely smashed, not just damaged. You will definitely need to grind this after completing all the levels. A quick level to grind these on is Level 1-11. You get four birds to attack the two structures on the level. The first bird should be shot at the middle of the small, closer tower, destroying as many of those blocks as possible. Then fire your next shot towards the upper part of the large tower (avoiding the lasers). Use the final two birds as you see fit to clean up the remains. Aim for smaller blocks and those made of ice and wood as they are easier to break. As soon as you are doing swinging your saber with the final bird, pause and restart the level. You can get 20-25 blocks with each playthrough of the level, earning around 60 blocks per minute. All 2000 should take around 30 minutes or less to grind.

Force Learner10
2000 blocks threw with force   

You will definitely need to grind this achievement after completing the game. To grind this fastest, first make sure you play through the game to Level 2-26 where you will earn an upgraded Force power. Then return to Level 2-24. Use your first two Obi Wan birds to force push the top two piles of blocks. ONLY blocks that become shrouded in blue count towards this achievement. On your second shot, as soon as the blocks turn a blue color, pause and restart the level. You can get between 25-35 blocks for each attempt of the level, earning around 150 blocks per minute. All 2000 should take around 15 minutes or less to grind.

Ultimate Laser Shooter10
1000 blocks smashed with laser   

This achievement will most likely need to be grinded after completing the game as well. As far as I can tell there are no "great" levels to boost this on, but there are two that are better than the others. In Level 1-18, you get three laser birds to shoot, but there are not that many blocks to destroy. Focus solely on hitting the wooden blocks, as the laser does not work well against the metal. Level 1-21, you only get two laser birds to shoot, but there are more and smaller blocks to destroy. Focus on hitting the wooden and ice blocks and avoid the metal ones. Personally, I find Level 1-21 a tad faster. Pause and restart the level as soon as all of your lasers are gone. You can destroy between 8-10 blocks per attempt of the level, earning around 40 blocks per minute. All 1000 should take around 25 minutes or less to grind.

Skilled Pilot10
500 blocks smashed with Pilot   

This achievement may or may not need to be grinded after completing the game. Destroying blocks with Pilot still intact or split in three both count towards this achievement. Pilot works best against ice blocks. Only the blocks DIRECTLY hit by Pilot count. The best level to grind this on is Level 2-1. Fire the birds below the first planet, arcing them into the ice structures. Make sure to split Pilot before making impact to increase you block count. Only two birds should be needed to destroy most of the blocks from the two ice towers. Pause and restart as soon as the you realize your second bird is not going to hit any other ice blocks. You can get between 10-15 blocks per attempt of the level, earning 50 blocks per minute. This should only take a few minutes to grind.


Magnificent Grumble10
300 blocks smashed with Chewbacca   

This achievement may or may not need to be grinded after completing the game. Only the blocks that you hit DIRECTLY with Chewbacca count towards this achievement. The best level to grind this on is Level 2-11. You get three Chewbacca birds and there is a bunch of easy-to-break ice blocks. Pause and restart the level as soon as the Chewbacca comes to a stop and isn't going to destroy any more blocks. You can get between 10-20 blocks per attempt of the level, earning around 50 blocks per minute. This grind will only take a couple of minutes at most.

Prominent Jedi10
Three lasers deflected with saber   

This achievement is referring the to lasers shot by the Stormtrooper pigs, which are shot in bursts of three. You need to swing your light saber and hit all three in the burst, causing them to change direction. A good level to get this on early in the game is Level 1-13. Launch your bird up and to the right and try and hit all three lasers. This will take a few tries to get the timing right.


Target Shooter10
Three pigs shot with a single blaster shot   

You need to hit three pigs with a single blaster shot round. Your bird shoots three rounds in a row which must hit three pigs. This is very easy to obtain on Level 2-17. Shoot your bird toward the tall pillar with a pig on top in the middle of the level. You need to line up the shot to it hits the pig on the pillar and the cluster of three in the back. This is not difficult, but may take a few tries.

Star Bird Addict10
Angry Birds Star Wars played for 30 hours   (3) 

These achievements requires that you play the game a cumulative total of 30 hours (consecutive 30 hours not required). After earning all other achievements, you will likely need to grind somewhere between 15 and 25 hours, depending on your Angry Birds skill and use of video guides. 

You can disable your screen timeout (Settings>Lockscreen>Screen Timeout>Never) and leave the game running unattended while in a level for long periods of time with the phone plugged in. Make sure when you are done to complete the level by passing or failing to save your time. NOTE: This trick is not possible on all devices (screen timeout will be limited to 5 minutes). For those of you that cannot disable your screen timeout, you will need to grind this the old-fashioned way. Load up a level and let it sit while you do something else, making sure to tap the screen periodically before your timeout limit is reached. You could also play the game legitimately, but with such a limited amount of levels, this could be quite boring. Just be sure to complete or fail the level when you are done grinding for the time being in order to save your accumulated time. The achievements will not unlock until you complete a level.

Fly Bird Fly10
5000 birds launched   (2) 

This is definitely the worst of the grinding achievements and should definitely be attempted last, as all of the other grinding will contribute to this one. You need to launch a total of 5000 birds. All levels and attempts are counted. The best level for grinding this achievement is 2-40, as this is the only level with 5 birds. First zoom all the way out so the screen panning is not an issue. Just launch all of the birds backwards (to the left), off the screen. Fire the birds as fast as you can. Restart as soon as you launch the fifth bird. You can launch around 30 birds per minute. This achievement will likely take 2 to 3 hours of solid grinding after earning all of the other achievements.

There's No-one Here10
Stormtrooper shot another trooper   (1) 

You need to cause the red 3-round laser burst of a Stormtrooper to hit another Stormtrooper. You will most likely get this without even trying, but it can easily be obtained on Level 1-13. Aim your first bird towards the TNT so it take out the blocks supporting the shooting Stormtrooper. While he is falling, he should take out one of the other seven Stormtroopers in the level.


Imperial Entanglement10
Stormtrooper popped with Tie Fighter's wing   

Tie Fighter's appear only on some of the Death Star levels. You need to defeat a Tie Fighter, which causes it to explode and its two wings to pop off. To get the achievement, you need to have one of the broken-off wings hit a Stormtrooper. This is obtainable on many levels and you will likely get it without trying. An easy level to do this on is 2-37. Shoot your first bird down the middle. Time your shot and use the lasers to blast the body of one of the circular moving Tie Fighters inside the largest gravitational field. Within a few tries, you should be able to get the one of the wings to hit one of the Stormtroopers.

Walking Carpet10
Same turret shot Chewbacca 6 times   (2) 

You need to get a single Chewbacca bird hit by 6 individual red laser shots from a turret. This is only obtainable on a few levels in the game (where there is a turret and you get to use a Chewbacca) and may only be possible in Levels 2-11 and 2-12. Both of these levels are suitable to obtain the achievement on, but it will require a little bit of luck and a few tries.

Level 2-11: Use your first Chewbacca to plow down through the area of blocks on the right down into the fire of the turret. This bird will likely disappear before you can get hit 6 times (as the debris must clear first). Fire your second bird down the same path. With a little luck, this bird can get hit 6 times if it lands in the correct orientation below. The level will end before the third bird can get hit 6 times so dont even bother.

Level 2-12: Just fire your first bird (Chewbacca) directly to the area in front of the turret. Try not to hit other blocks on the way down, but it can still be obtained if you do (sometimes it actually helps prop your bird up). With a little luck, the bird can get hit 6 times if it lands with the correct orientation.

Simple Pigs and Nonsense10
300 stormtroopers popped   

You need to destroy a total of 300 Stormtroopers. You will certainly unlock this achievement while completing the game.

The Birds Will Be With You10
10 levels completed with one bird   

This is probably the most skillful achievement in the list, and it is still not that difficult at all. You need to complete 10 different levels, only using the first bird you are given. The first levels in the game are the easiest to do this on. See THIS link for 3-star walkthroughs to finish this achievement off with as little effort as possible.

Lack of Faith10
Level restarted 100 times   

Ignore the somewhat misleading achievement description. You do not need to restart a single level 100 times, just restart 100 times total across all levels. Do not worry about this achievement. You will most likely get it before completing the game, and definitely before finishing the grinding of all other achievements.

Pork side of the Force10
Level failed 10 times with one pig left   

You simply need to fail a level with only one pig remaining. Again, this does not need to be the same level, but it can be any level. Just do this ten times. To grind this, just load up level 1-1 and fire all your birds backwards, avoiding the sole pig in the level. You must wait for the fail screen to pop-up for it to count. Click restart from the fail screen and repeat.
