|Star Wars Arcade (also known simply as Star Wars) is a video game released in 1993 to arcades. A home port served as a launch title for the Sega 32X in 1994. It is set during the original Star Wars trilogy.
So you think you've got what it takes to battle the evil forces of Darth Vader and the Galactic Empire, huh? Well, Star Wars Arcade gives you that chance you've always dreamed about. Fly an X-wing or a Y-wing through four or eight stages (depending on whether you choose Arcade Mode or 32X Mode, respectively) in an effort to destroy the Death Star. Of course, there are Super Star Destroyers, asteroids and plenty of TIE fighters that get in your way. If you need help, enlist a friend who can act as your gunner as you battle your way through the far reaches of space (and a trench or two).
The game features gameplay similar to that of Atari's Star Wars game with players piloting an X-wing or a Y-wing in first or third person perspective and battling Imperial forces.
The game has three levels which include intercepting TIE fighters in an asteroid field, destroying a Super Star Destroyer and making an assault run on a Death Star. The arcade cabinet allowed two people to play, with one serving as pilot and the other as gunner.
