Star Wars Rebels: Recon Missions Review (Disney)

Star Wars Rebels: Recon Missions
What It Is

Star Wars Rebels: Recon Missions from Disney is a mobile game based on the animated series, Star Wars Rebels. You begin the game as Ezra, but additional characters including Kanan, Sabine, and Ezra in a cadet uniform will become available. Cadet Ezra can be unlocked by collecting 30 Stormtrooper helmets, which are scattered in the game levels. The other characters can be purchased for real money.

The game has two main areas: one is the map, where you access side-scrolling platformer levels. In these levels you run, jump, and blast your way from a start point to the finish in order to rescue a citizen. The second area is a rebel base, called Haven, which you build as you play using objects found or rewarded in the levels. The rescued citizens from the levels also go to Haven, and from there you can interact with them. There are hidden areas and objects in each level that reward you with Hope points. Hope points can be used in Haven to unlock upgrades like a rapid fire feature for your blaster or a Health Upgrade.

Is It Fun?

Star Wars Rebels: Recon Missions is like two games in one. You have the platformer combat levels and the world-building, Haven area.

Who It’s For

The game is rated ages 9 and up for the cartoon violence, but we think this game is suitable for anyone that is old enough to watch the animated series. That includes adults as well.

What To Be Aware Of

This is a free-to-play game, with in-app purchases that include unlocking characters. The first four levels are free at the start, however, you will need to purchase a content pack to continue with levels five and beyond.

You do not need to be connected to internet to play, unless you want to make an in-app purchase.

Star Wars Rebels: Recon Missions is available for Android, iOS, and Windows mobile devices.
