The arcade game from Atari based on the third Star Wars movie and features three action sequences inspired by the film.
The game consists of three levels: In the first level you control Princess Leia on her Speederbike through the forest of Endor, to the safety of the Ewok village. You leave Leia there and go to another part of the forest to control Chewbacca's Scout Walker. There, Han Solo is waiting to deactivate the shields protecting the Death Star. On the second and third levels you control Chewbacca and Lando Calrissian as he flies the Millenium Falcon and enters the Death Star and travels down a dangerous corridor towards the central reactor. Blast the reactor and then turn around to get away from the Death Star as it blows up!
The graphics are nice on the CPC, with vivid colors and nicely drawn backgrounds. THe sound features the theme from the movie at the intro, and good sound effects while playing.

CPU: ZiLOG Z80 4MHZ MEMORY: 64 KB or 128 KB of RAM depending on the model (capable of being expanded to 512k using memory extension boards) GRAPHICS: Motorola 6845 address generator, Mode 0: 160x200 / 16 colors, Mode 1: 320x200 / 4 colors, Mode 2: 640x200 / 2 colors, A colour palette of 27 colors was supported SOUND: The CPC used the General Instrument AY-3-8912 sound chip, providing 3 channels Mono Sound (via internal speaker) but capable to offer Stereo Sound provided through a 3.5 mm headphones jack (with pretty impressive outcome!). Also, it is possible to play back digital sound samples at a resolution of approximately 5bit. This technique is very processor-intensive though.
