Star Wars: Return of the Jedi is a 1984 Atari arcade game, and the follow-up to the first Star Wars arcade game. The game utilizes raster graphics, rather than vector graphics, which were used for the first and third Atari arcade games based on the Star Wars franchise.

The game was also released for various home computers in the late 80's by Software company Domark Ltd. Ports of the game included the Amstrad CPC, ZX Spectrum, Atari St & Commodore 64 and Amiga.

Gameplay[edit]

The player takes control of three different vehicles in stages based upon the original film. Gameplay is from a 3/4 isometrically projected perspective, as pioneered in Sega's earlier Zaxxon. Play is broken into several stages. In the first stage, the player pilots a speeder bike to the Ewok village. The next stage involves piloting the Millennium Falcon to destroy a reactor. Another speeder bike stage follows. The final stage involves piloting both an AT-ST and the Millennium Falcon in rapid succession in a fight against a star destroyer.[2]
