Star Wars

You take control of Luke Skywalker in his X-Fighter ship and must destroy one attack wave after another of deadly enemy fighters. Wave one has Luke flying out in deep space with a number of the Empire's Tie Fighters to be shot. He then dives down to the Death Star to fly through deadly laser town which grow up from the ground: a 50,000 bonus is given if all towers are destroyed. In the final scene Luke dives into a trench and must hit the exhaust port to cause the Death Star to explode.

The wire frame graphic style is incredibly similar to the arcade machine and all the gameplay has been converted intact. After a little practice all the attack waves can be mastered - which kills the long-term appeal of the game. However, you can get plenty of enjoyment from Star Wars.
