Star Wars Upright

About This Project

The controller is a derivative of the legendary military Battlezone version. After fighting the TIE fighters, when you are flying towards the Death Star, the yellow lines on the Death Star spell out either “MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU” odd-numbered waves or peoples’ names even numbered waves. The text is faint, but definitely there. It is possible to see this just as the screen zooms into the Death Star at the end of the dogfight sequence. The text is clearly there if the game is paused, either via MAME, or by flipping DIP switch 8 in the options bank on the logic board. With regards to the order of their release, Star Wars was actually followed by Return Of The Jedi, a raster game that used the same flight controller, then by The Empire Strikes Back, a vector game shipped as a conversion kit for the original Star Wars.
