The major features and gameplay performance of this game:

When you launch the game, you will be shown a brief video screen wherein you will be told about what has actually happened and why you are doing what you are doing in the game. This game video is much like the opening credits to the game, and can also be skipped from the top right of the screen via the Skip button.

Once the skip button is pressed, you will be taken immediately to the gameplay screen where you will be greeted by a holographic talking image of Saponza who is your ally and detailed about your mission at hand.

Star Wars Commander building defences

Throughout the game you will get messages from various enemies and allies and you have to act accordingly. The game shop is accessible at all times at the bottom right corner. You gain credits in the game by clicking on buildings which collect taxes, and also by winning battles from an incoming enemy. Below you can see the procedure for setting up a turret on your base. Simply click on the Shop icon, select the turret option and place it on your base by dragging it on your screen, and pressing the tick button on a green zone. Red zones are areas where you can’t place your buildings because of the land not being in your base area, or because of a building already being present at the spot where you wish to place it.

You get attacked by enemies throughout the game, so always make sure that your defenses and attacks are up!
