GameplayEdit

For the most part, the game is a typical side-scrolling platformer. Luke uses the lightsaber as his primary attack, and he can also use the Force to execute special manoeuvres like floating, speeding and stopping time, among others. When the characters are rescued, they will help Luke by providing hints and other actions that are important to progress through the game. Between planets, the game switches to a first-person shooter perspective as the Millennium Falcon is forced to fight a wave of TIE fighters that prevent the player's entrance to the next planet. The final level involves using the X-wing against the Death Star. The X-wing travels through a long corridor; at the end, proton torpedoes will be shot automatically in order to destroy the station. If the player fails to get to the end before time runs out, the Death Star will destroy Yavin 4 and the game will be over. The game is particularly difficult, since the game gives 3 lives and two continues, and Luke dies upon any contact. The Millennium Falcon can sustain three hits before being destroyed.

Each character has different attributes. Obi-Wan Kenobi can resurrect Han Solo or Princess Leia five times. R2-D2 can display a map of Death Star hallways.
