It’s made so you can play a in short sessions, on the bus or what have you.

You’ll micro-manage the growth of the Death Star, as folks come and go from a space elevator along the side of the growing space station. You’ll be in charge of building secret levels that serve different function towards crushing the Rebellion, all the while maintaining vibrant business districts up top!
