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:

Well everything text wise is done. That means that the ability menu and dialogue screens are fully translated from the original, which used katakana to display everything. Not a bad job, just don’t mind the overusing of ellipses everywhere.
