One puck, and only two competitors. One is the computer, and the other is, of course, you. You get a chance to match your skills at this Air Hockey style game, over 'Cantina Band' inspired music. Deflect the puck around the walled area using your bat, trying to knock it into your opponent's goal.

There are several competitors, from which some of them definitely cheat, so be prepared to be laughed at. However, you can cheat as well, as you can resize your stick to fill the whole table width, or add one in the middle, and see who breaks glass first. There are single plays or the tournament where you play opponents in order of difficulty. The winner is the one who reaches 15 glassbreaks first.

Apple IIGS version

Around 1990, this game was ported to Apple IIGS computer, but it remained 'unreleased' reportedly due to a beta copy being leaked. It would have been the only color version of the game for any Apple computer, as the original Macintosh release was only in black and white graphics.


Rather than a manual, the original boxed game came with a "doublesided poster" featuring front and back box cover art on one side; and game overview, character profiles and aspects of gameplay on the other. "Startup Special" sheet contained computer-related loading instructions.
