In the “Star Wars” universe, Cloud City refers to the floating city of the planet Bespin, first featured in “Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back.”
As I noted in my teaser post, “Cloud City is where Han Solo and Princess Leia winds up at following their escape from Hoth. It makes sense then for Rovio to release the Cloud City episode in Angry Birds Star Wars following the Hoth episode, which was added to the game late last January.”

And now, you can experience the Cloud City episode thanks to the game’s latest update:
Welcome to Bespin! After narrowly escaping the Hog Empire at the Battle of Hoth, the Rebel Birds are happy to lay low for a while. But Cloud City might not be as welcoming as it appears…
The new Cloud City episode introduces 20 new Bespin levels. It also introduces a new steam gameplay mechanic, presumably in reference to the carbonite freezing that befell Han Solo, who was then taken away by Boba Fett.
Speaking of Boba Fett, the new Angry Birds Star Wars update also introduces the famous bounty hunter. You can unlock the new Boba Fett missions in the game by collecting all five hidden rocket packs, by entering a promo code, or by purchasing them in-app.
An AppAdvice Game of the Week awardee, Angry Birds Star Wars is available for both iPhone and iPad. Angry Birds Star Wars for iPhone and Angry Birds Star Wars HD for iPad are priced at $0.99 and $2.99, respectively.
The latest update to the game also includes a new Twitter integration that makes bragging about your trophies easier.
