Remember the excitement you felt when you first saw Star Wars?
Never before had space battles been so realistic. So furiously focused. Especially that last stomach-churning attack on the Death Star.
Remember? How could you possibly forget? There's never been an adventure quite like Star Wars.
Then came a coin-op game that captured the urgency and excitement - and made you part of the action.
Now Star Wars enters a new dimension. So get a firm grip on your controls. Because when you boot up this Star Wars, you'll think you've zoomed right into the middle of the movie itself.
Suddenly, you'll be Luke Skywalker, piloting your agile X-wing fighter as you attack the Empire's Death Star. It will call for every bit of skill and courage you can muster.
And more than courage or skill...may The Force be with you!
- Now available for the first time in North America.
- Based on the immensely popular movie and coin-op game.
- Dazzling color and graphics.
- Increasing levels of difficulty.
First outfight waves of deadly TIE fighters. When you reach the Death Star, you must survive devastating laser fire. Then plunge into the trench as you battle to reach the Death Star's only weakness!

It's the challenging action of STAR WARS: THE ARCADE GAME--here in an exciting home video game featuring 3 different screens!
You're at the controls of LUKE'S X-WING FIGHTER< heading straight for the DEATH STAR. Your mission: to destroy it before the EMPIRE seeks its revenge on the REBEL base.
Lock your sights on attacking TIE FIGHTERS and blast them with your PROTON TORPEDOES. Race along the DEATH STAR's surface, firing on giant towers. Finally, dive full throttle into the DEATH STAR's equatorial trench. You'll need split-second timing to avoid all the obstacles as you streak through the trench in search of the main reactor. Hit it and you've blown the DEATH STAR out of existence! MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU™
