Return of the Jedi: Death Star Battle is a shoot 'em up video game published by Parker Brothers in 1983 for the Atari 2600, Atari 5200, and Atari 8-bit family. In 1984 it was published for the Sinclair ZX Spectrum. It was the first released video game to be based on the film Return of the Jedi. The cover art was produced by artist John Berkey.
In the game, the player controls the Millennium Falcon with the aim of destroying the second Death Star. The game is split into two stages. In the first, the player must shoot enemy TIE fighters while waiting for an opportunity to pass through an energy shield.
In the second stage, the player must shoot at parts of the Death Star until there is a clear path to the reactor. Once the reactor has been destroyed, the player must survive the resultant explosion.
Once these objectives are completed, the game begins again in a new round with greater difficulty.
