Vintage Video Games #21- Super Star Wars
To celebrate the launch of the new Star Wars Movie, I thought I would take a look at vintage video game Super Star Wars- a 1992 video game for the Super NES . Mainly a run and gun platformer it has stages which feature other fun challenges, such as driving a landspeeder or piloting an X-wing. It also features multiple playable characters with different abilities.
Storyline – The story mainly follows the plot of Star Wars the movie, though adaptations have been made to suit the action game. Cutscenes between levels tell an abbreviated version of what’s going on. You start off as young Luke Skywalker in the desert of Tatooine. You rescue the droids C-3P0 and R2-D2 and travel to Mos Eisley to meet up with Chewbacca and Han Solo then the whole gang ultimately ends up on the Death Star, saving the princess before blowing the space station out of the sky. Simple!
Highlights – Oh it has to be battling with the lightsabers. Hack ’em and slash ’em
