Buzz Lightyear of Star Command is a video game developed by Traveller's Tales, and published by Disney Interactive and Activision in 2000. It is based on the animated series Buzz Lightyear of Star Command, a spin off of Toy Story.

Gameplay[edit]

A screenshot of the player fighting the second boss of the game, who has a colored shield which indicates which weapon will be effective against them.

The game consists of multiple planets that the player races through to beat the villain to the end of the level. Depending on how much faster the player gets to the end, the boss is easier. If the player reaches the end before the villain, Buzz's partner Mira appears and makes the fight easier. During the fight, the boss has a shield indicating which weapon to use on them.
