This was a modest improvement over the mediocre one that Parker Bros. put out. The game plays better and has more of the arcade feel to it. But it's not much easier! I seem to miss the TIE fighters more than I'm hitting them, and they never seem to have any problems shooting at me. I also find hitting the exhaust port to be hit-or-miss (pun intended) like the Parker Bros. version. Dodging and firing at the fireballs is also problematic. You're almost always hit and you lose shields. The sound effects could be better, and without John Williams' inspiring music playing throughout, it's hard to get into the mood of being Luke Skywalker.

This is the best Star Wars game available on the XL/XE. Compared to the previous 1984 Parker Bros Release (16ko) which mostly used sprites due to memory limitations, this full 64ko release (1988) uses vector graphics very much like the original arcade game (the only drawback is that it is somewhat slower than the Parker release but it's quickly forgotten). A nice loading screen (disc only) and an enthusiastic soundtrack complete a very well made package. Zeppelin rules !!!
