Back in the old days, if you wanted to be like Luke Skywalker, you had to grow your hair long, spend hours perfecting a wide-eyed goofy grin and use a broom handle for a light sabre. Imaginative? Maybe. Cool? Absolutely not.
Just when your reputation was really at an all-time low, the conversion of Star Wars appeared. Coping with that was a sinch. Question is, can you still cope when The Empire Strikes Back?
Your main objective sounds dead simple: reach the protective safety of a huge asteroid. Trouble is, you only have five shields and you've to survive four levels of danger first. Get hold of your nearest snowspeeder because first of all you play the part of Luke. Probots are trying to transmit pictures of the Rebels' power generator to Darth Vader and you've got to try to shoot them first.
Immediately, you're face to face with small AT-ST and huge AT-AT walkers: you've got a limited number of tow cables to fire before you make it to the rebel base. Next, look cool, because Han Solo is in the hot-seat next. The Millennium Falcon is under attack from Imperial TIE fighters - if he manages to blast them out of the way all Han has to cope with is the asteroid field. Easier said than done: every collision involves the loss of one whole shield.
Hit a certain number of targets on each level and you're awarded a JEDI letter. Collect all four, and you attain true Jedi Force, a power which makes you invincible against all Dark Side enemies for a limited amount of time.
So, put that in your pipe and smoke it, Darth.
