The player takes control of three different vehicles in stages based upon the Return of the Jedi film. Gameplay is from a 3/4 isometrically projected perspective and 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.
