The Star Wars Cockpit Arcade Game will let you relive those glorious green wireframe battles of yesteryear. The terror, the thrills, the weird space physics, yes now you can return to those happy carefree hours trying to show the Empire who’s boss. But first, stump up the £3500.00 (coinmech £150.00 extra) to get your original 1983 cabinet restored.
There are three chapters in the story of the game. In the first, your X-Wing Fighter dogfights with Imperial TIE Fighters and Darth Vader’s ship. In the second, you maneuver past bunkers and deflector towers on the face of the Death Star, blasting them along the way. In the final scenario, you find yourself speeding through the trench of the Death Star, avoiding obstacles and blasting gun turrets then, finally, hopefully time a proton torpedo for a direct hit on the exaust port target. What follows, if you are successful, is the Death Star exploding in a multitude of different colors. Then it is on to do battle again.
Minionsoft has a “remake” of the classic Star Wars game for free at their site. There’s a bunch of other free remakes at The Freeware Database
I remember playing on these in the arcades in the 1980’s, the graphics arent good compared to todays standards but they where good fun!!!!
Nice, thanks Dan. @Mark – agreed. :-)
