Wars Arcade Game
About the Game:
It's probably the oldest Star Wars game ever made for the
PC. By Broderbund Software (Now Red Orb Entertainment), the game has been
made for 286 computers.
In the Star Wars Arcade
Game, also named 'Princess Leia's Rebel Force', you pilot an X-Wing and
attack Imperial targets. These battles take place in space and you find
yourself against Tie Fighters and Tie Advanceds. After such a dogfight,
you enter a Death Star trench and finally you fire your torpedo's at the
exhaust port. Then you fight another Tie Fighter battle (but harder),
you approach a Death Star etc. So the game is built very simple. Also,
the graphics exist of frames only. So no colours, except orange. The sound
is provided from the PC Speaker, and there is, of course, no music. Surprisingly
the game supports the keyboard, the mouse, and a joystick.

The Star Wars Arcade Game runs extremely fast on modern
computers; that means: everything faster than a 486. You can slow down
the program a little using 'sw' instead of 'starwars', but still the game
is unplayable fast. When the opening screen appears, touch the 'space'
button. Then, push F1 to select your controls. 1 = keyboard (q = up, a
= down, o = left, p = right, space = fire) 2 = mouse (move mouse to aim,
left mouse button = fire) 3 = joystick (move joystick to aim, first joystick
button = fire) 4 = return to game. Then, push space, click left, or push
the button to go to the next screen, where you can choose your difficulty.
After, that, the game will start.
