[Game of The Week] Week #14 – Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back

Hi folks!

Here we are again with another entry, the twelft, of the [Game of the Week] column and this time the game featured is Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back for Atari 2600!

Developer: Parker Brothers

Publisher: Parker Brothers

Platforms: Atari 2600 (pictured), Intellivision

Genre: Action

Release Date: 1982

As I told you last week in general I’m not a huge fan of movie tie-ins. Even this game received mixed reviews, as frequently happens with movie-based games, especially when the movie is a success. However, considering the horse power of the humble Atari 2600 and its limitation, Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back is a rather decent game. Maybe dull, maybe repetitive, but hey, that’s Atari, a game that last more than 5 minutes is a rarity!

Do you own this game? Have you ever played it? Tell me more in the comments section, let’s discuss!
