Game Description:

This is not the same game as LucasArts’ version, which was released in the US. Unlike that one, which mixed sidescrolling parts with overhead pod trips, this one is more of a platformer where you control Luke Skywalker as he goes and plays parts of the movie by using your Lightsaber to mow your way through the enemies.

And the first boss? Well, it’s your own pop, Darth Vader. Except he’s not Vader. Which is strange because he turns into this scorpion thing when you hit him once. And when you beat the first stage, you get on the Millenium Falcon to rescue Obi-Wan Kenobi.

So wow, you get your first Lightsaber before meeting old Ben!

The game is pretty good, with its graphics suffering because of the huge detail that the characters are supposed to have… whereas that simply cannot be recreated on an NES. That doesn’t mean it’s not fun. Just get used to the fact that Luke dies with a single hit, that there are no continues, and that the control’s a little shoddy, and you’ll be fine.

Translation Description:

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.
