Return of the Jedi

The Plot

The Return of the Jedi is about, well, the Return of the Jedi. You play the whole story through as the different characters. If you’ve seen the movie, you’ll know how everything goes.

Game play

Being a Gameboy game, the gameplay is pretty simple. ‘A’ is jump, ‘A’ twice is double jump, ‘B’ is attack, and double jump for players with melee weapons makes them do a spin attack, which is pretty cool. When you start out, you get to play as three different characters: Leia Organa, Luke Skywalker, or Chewbacca. They all have their special abilites. Luke wields a lightsaber, which is really easy to use, Leia is disguised as the bounty hunter Boush, so she uses a vibroblade, and Chewie uses a blaster, which is pretty hard to control (as you go on through the game, you get to play as different characters, such as Han Solo, or the ewok Wicket).

Graphics

It’s a pretty old Gameboy game, so everything’s in black and white, but you can clearly distinguish whose who. Other than that, the graphics are that of Gameboy games.

Sound

The sound, like all Gameboy games, isn’t spectacular. The John Williams soundtrack that plays at the beginning is pretty cool, but the game effects stink.

Appropriateness

There is violence in the game (if you want to call it violence). When you kill something, it simply explodes in a small ball of fire. Short, sweet, and to the point. It’s really not even that violent. But there also is killing, considering it’s a fighting game and all. Also there is the Force, you don’t use it, but obviously, Luke Skywalker is a Jedi, so it’s there. Other than that, there’s nothing.

Overall

I enjoy playing this game, it’s good to pick up and play (like most Gameboy games). It’s worth the time to check it out.
