Star Wars: The Return Of The Jedi is an arcade shoot 'em up game developed from Atari and based on the third Star Wars movie. This action game features three action sequences inspired by the popular film.
STORY / GAMEPLAY The game is based on the third Star Wars blockbuster movie, the Return Of The Jedi and it splits into three different levels. On the first level, you play as Princess Leia riding her Speeder-bike through the forest of Endor until you reach to the safety of the Ewok village. Upon reaching Endor you continue in another part of the forest and this time control Chewbacca's Scout Walker. There, Han Solo is waiting to deactivate the shields that protect the Death Star. On the second and the third level you play as Chewbacca and Lando Calrissian as they pilot the Millenium Falcon and enter the Death Star flying down a dangerous corridor, towards the central reactor. You have to blast the reactor and then speed your way through to get away from the Death Star before it turns into pieces! In each level there are numerous enemies awaiting and many other hazards that you can easily crash onto. So, apart from flying at high speeds, you also need to shoot enemy forces and avoid deadly obstacles.
GRAPHICS / SOUND The graphics on the C64 are good and pretty similar to the CPC, though the differences in colors. It also has nicely drawn backgrounds. To the sound, the Commodore version features the original Star Wars theme from the movie and a few good sound effects while playing.
