Star Wars: Tiny Death Star Updated, Brings Imperial Assignments System and More

I really wish Ron was around to write this piece, since apparently he plays this game like a madman. Regardless, an update is now live on Google Play for Star Wars: Tiny Death Star, a game that reminds me a bit of SimTower, only because I was raised playing computer games on Windows 95.

In the update, players now have access to over 100 new missions thanks to the addition of the Imperial Assignments System. With this, the Emperor wants more work to be completed on the galaxy’s most superior weapon, so you best get to it! 

Players will also see new weekly special events, exclusive rewards such as VIPs and new levels, plus a Cargo Bay Floor. To see the full changelog, check it below.

What’s New

  • New Imperial Assignments System: The Emperor is demanding for more work to be completed, so do the Emperor’s bidding by visiting the new,Imperial Assignments center. Complete over 100 new missions and be handsomely rewarded.
  • Weekly Special Events: Participate in special, limited-time events to protect your battle station.
  • Exclusive Rewards: Earn completely brand-new rewards such as VIPs,Imperial Bux, Costumes, Levels, and Characters by completing assignments and special events.
  • Cargo Bay Floor: It’s your one stop shop to collect special rewards and packages as appreciation for service to the Empire.

    how to get the ??? levels

  • emreb

    don’t upgrade
    hurrying up a level being built, the price in bux doubled in the new upgrade. plus there is new way of receiving VIPs. You have to complete assignments. I have been playing for 5 days now with the new version and I am yet to receive a Worker VIP.
    I wish I can roll back to the previous version.

    Sim Tower… the most unforgiving Sim game in my Sim gaming history.

  • DemiGosh

    Anyone else have a problem with the reward amounts for the new Imperial missions? The cost per completing them seems to far outweigh the reward. Example: Mission X, 30 of item 1 @1000, 30 of item 2 @ 1400, 15 of item 3 @ 2400 = 54,000 reward…. why would i want to spend 126k to make 54k!? I think they really screwed up the mission system.

    • Dat Nguyen

      Unless I did the math wrong, I saw the same thing. Ridiculous.

      • David Molina

        But when you build each one you get 3 to 5 of them depending on what it is. Not build 1 and get 1. So yeah, your math is wrong

        • Dat Nguyen

          Makes more sense. Thanks!

        • Arthur Renzarelli

          Apparently you don’t. You only get one. The number you saw are the medals you get for each item completed, I was confused about that too then I just went and verified in the inventory. By the way, do you remember if the indicator for the days left does actually include the last day or not? Will there be a “0 days left” or will the event end after “1 day left”?

    • Lanky

      The ammounts for the imeprial items are now drastically reduced for me – costing 300 coins instead of the usual 1000. Check the math again – from my 3 assignments, each one earns me a profit.

      • DemiGosh

        Just checked again, and checked for an update (up to date), all my cost are outrageous but i’ll give a more specific example: Assignment 1 “Systems Upgrade”; Power Coupling 31 @ 1000, Security Systems 30 @ 435, Imperial Scout 15 @ 2470, Reward: 54,648. That’s a total cost of 81,100 for a 54,648 reward… It doesn’t make any sense to participate in these missions.

    • crimson

      Exactly. I think they rely on people who will not calculate it and spend money and time for missions. Sadly you could also not get many VIP so the game will halt with this update. Terrible job by developers.

  • gunslinger

    am i the only one who thought “merchandise merchandise merchandise” when they were explaining the retail?

  • chris kilps

    I really wish this game would get cloud backup already. Got really far in the game then one day the rom for my device crash I had to reload it, and in do so I lost my tower. Has not been able to go back to the game since then .

    • Dat Nguyen

      This update does exactly that. Synchs all your games across iOS and Android.

  • Higher_Ground

    You’ve got me wondering if I can find the CDROM for Sim Copter, Sim Safari, and any other random Sim game I had back in the day. Sim city and Sim tower were fun, but flying around in your chopper and following heards of elephants was where it was really at.

  • compwagon

    I loved SimTower so much. Does anyone know if anyone has made a (serious) modern game like it?

  • Jeremy Sheehan

    I’m ready to do your bidding, my master!

    Just in time! Last week I finished building all the levels, all the darth vader manufacturing missions and had every single store filled with a starred worker. I’ve been amassing space bucks so I can build a few new levels at once! Yes, I am completely addicted to this game.

    • Adam

      In the exact same boat as you. In fact I just decided to put the game away until it was updated with more levels as I have built everything and am just amassing money for no reason now. I was kinda hoping they wouldn’t update so I wouldn’t get sucked back in…

      • Jeremy Sheehan

        lol – not once did I hope they didn’t update. lolol

        My wife was in the room when I read this article and she asked me why I was so excited. When I told her it was an update to TDS, she just shook her head and groaned.

        • Adam

          Just looked at the change log and no reports of new levels. If there isn’t any more to build I’m going to be a little disappointment. Time to head home and fire it up I guess.

          • vwbeetlvr

            No new levels. In the same boat as all of you. Goes to show this game is a cash grab. I’ve spent $35 in free Google Play credit on this and this is how they treat me?

          • jarmouche

            Then you will hate the new updatd. The imperial assignment missions have me building 30+ items @ 4 hours per build time. Those numbers are just begging you to use bux to make it go quicker. Highly doubt I’ll continue on with this game.

          • Elizabeth Aunt Betty Patterson

            Me & my son play together. After the new update we completed the 3 missions given & it wont give us the rewards. One was for 90,000 credits, one was for 20 bux, and the other was 15, 000 credits. My Son & I both tried to collect them but nothing & it is not giving us new assignments because it is stuck. My Son said System Fail. Has anyone else had this problem?

          • apete

            Yep, I still have this problem. I’ve gotten all 3 complete and when I click finish on any of them, it takes me through the tutorial.

          • thraka

            Same problem. I’m still building resources to have spares, but can’t complete my mission. Just tutorial over and over.

    • TC Infantino

      Me as well. I finished building all the available levels almost 3 weeks ago. I actually didn’t learn about the missions given by the level under 1 until after Christmas, so I am still working on completing those. I am hoping that this update brings me more things to accomplish, plus more levels. Basically I have been in an amassing money status, over 14 million and no new levels to spend them on.

      • Jeremy Sheehan

        14 million? Niiiice! I’ve got a little over $5 mil.

    Random thought : whatever happened to Spaceballs 2 : The Search For More Money.

      He milked the first one so much he didn’t need to look for more.

    • gunslinger

      just a joke, i believe

    • GlitchNDaSystem

      I heard that sometime after the first came out Rick Moranis pitched an idea for Spaceballs 3: The Search for Spaceballs 2, but it didn’t go anywhere.

  • one of those “time sink” games – tried it and stopped after a week. clash of clans has been a much better version of one of those games for me so far, and haven’t paid a dime.

    • Foo

      There are a few improvements that the game could use before it stops being quite as annoying. Among them, making the game auto-manage people and orders when you are not actively playing. It’s a little silly that every little thing has to be done manually.
      Granted, the game would become even more hollow if things could be automated since the manual process of dragging things around is basically the gist of the game.

      • Jeremy Sheehan

        It’s all about earning imperial space bucks. I evicted 6 people from the death start just to earn more bucks for buying VIP’s. if you do it right, you can earn a lot really fast.

        • michael arazan

          I must of done it wrog, I bought all the levels, stocked all the levels had rooms filled jobs filled, stocked everything, did the side jobs for imperial missions, and only was making 25% of the money I spent back, leaving me no money to restock shelves and sell stuff, so them what? What’s the point of doing everything to make 25% back, oh that’s right buy iap’s
