Star Wars (Namco) is an action platformer game for the Nintendo Entertainment System. This version of the game was released only in Japan in 1987.
The game is a 2D sidescrolling action game and several other missions, such as flying your X-Wing out in space, shooting at Tie Fighters, and the last mission, flying your X-Wing to take out the Death Star. I estimate that you’ll get about 45 minutes of enjoyment out of this game, should you play all the way to the end and beat the game. Probably, the most difficult area to pass in the game would be the first visit to the Death Star.
I’m almost certain that everything has been translated in this game. Honookatana translated the scripts, so thanks to him.
Version 1.10 has been released. A few emulation incompatibilities have been solved. Also, the force menu has been redone to use one tile per letter instead of squishy fonts. Also, the dialog has been adjusted a bit to have more of a Star Wars feel to it. A big thanks to Cahos Rahne Veloza in testing and making suggestions to improve the patch, along with discovering the old patch did not work right with Nestopia 1.37.
