May 1, 2014 - Written By Justin Diaz

Listen up Star Wars fans, there’s no greater holiday for you than May 4th. You know what I’m talking about. If you don’t, you’re not a real Star Wars fan. I jest. May 4th for those of you that are unaware is the official holiday of Star Wars Day. We can get into the reasons why this is the day that was picked for this great holiday but we’re not going to do that, as we have more pressing matters at hand. Like letting you in on the great tribute that Google is throwing up in the Play Store for all the fans out there. Google is having a special sale to celebrate the upcoming holiday, and they have termed it appropriately calling it the “May The Fourth Be With You” sale. It’s fitting right?

There are plenty of Star Wars themed apps, games and book available so you’ll want to be sure to cruise the entire page to make sure that you don’t miss out on anything. You can use the force of your fingers and scroll through the sale items on your phone or tablet, or browse from the web store to see the stuff Google has tossed in there for the limited time sale. You’ll find Angry Birds Star Wars one and two, cause why would you not, along with other Star Wars themed games like Star Wars: Tiny Death Star, Star Wars Pinball 3, and Star Wars: Assault Team. There are more Star Wars games to be had but you’ll just have to search for yourself. Consider it part of your Jedi training.

When it comes to the other stuff that’s included you’ll find a generous assortment of Star Wars books. Books are helpful to Jedi too you know, they induce training of the mind. So put down that light saber and pick up a Star Wars novel, or two, or three. Heck… all of them if you feel a little under educated on all things Star Wars. The sale focuses mostly on the books, as most of the games were already free, but Angry Birds Star Wars 2 is on sale for $0.99, and so is Star Wars Pinball 3. There’s sure to be a gem or two in here that you’ll enjoy and the entire list is one that even The Empire would be proud of. You have just a few days to get in on it, don’t miss out. Download something you must. Those who miss out on these special deals might just feel like this afterwards.(see image below)
