Gameplay Variables

There are various forms of Health, Ammo and power, which balances differently for each character:

  • Shields: They recharge on their own and protect the hull.
  • Hull: cannot be repaired unless R2-D2 is picked up, if depleted then you loose the battle
  • Charge: any weapon can be charged, each characters standard attack fires one missile on one charge (no charge), two missiles on two charges three on three charges and a unique special attack on the fourth charge.
  • Speed: determines how fast you go, can be increased.
  • Attack power: Determines how much damage each missile does to the target.
  • Ammo: allows you to fire charged missiles, it slowly recharges on its own.



There is one of each droid in every level, you can pickup one droid at a time, and you can loose droids if certain ammounts of damage is attained in one go, however you can pick these back up. They are often hidden in difficult areas to reach.

  • R2-D2- Powerup: Repair=Regenerates Hull
  • GNK Power Droid- Powerup: Attack power increase and quicker shield regeneration.
  • Tactical Droid- Powerup: Attack power increases and the remote will fire with a weak (no charge standard) missile on enemies.


  • Cloak=Turns you invisible for a limited time
  • Attack increase
  • Speed increase
  • Shield regeneration speed increase

Gameplay Modes

Single Player Game Modes

Battle mode

In this mode you pick up to four computer controlled opponents, and any arena and a battle takes place

Tournament Mode

The Tournament Mode would start off with you facing one opponent, then two, three and finally four; the opponents are chosen at random as are the locations. To acquire a new vehicle, you need to pass the tournament with at least 10,000 credits, and if you are destroyed during a match, then there is an option to replay, but at a cost of 500 credits. If you are constantly losing, the tournament will end when you run out of credits. This is how you unlock locked characters and video clips.

Hunt a Droid

In this mode you have to hunt and destroy as many probe droids as you can within a set time limit

High Stakes

In this mode you choose a vehicle as does the CPU. There are odds shown by calculation on win/loss records. You then bet credits until a player wins 10,000 credits or loses everything.

Two Player Game Modes

High Stakes

This is a mode where you bet 1000 credits (both players) and if you win the match, you obtain double the credits betted. You continue until you gain 10,000 credits or when one player loses all of his credits.

Battle Mode

This mode includes vs. and co-op. In vs. mode, the game is over when one vehicle is destroyed. In co-op, both players must survive and destroy the enemy CPU vehicles.


Each arena has at least one ammo and shield regenerator, which can usually be destroyed.

  • Bespin: Cloud City
  • Dagobah
  • Death Star (II)
  • Dune Sea
  • Hoth
  • Mos Eisley
  • Naboo
  • Yavin 4

Special Features

Yavin IV

Two temples host the ammo and shield regenerator, one of which has a floating golden bolder, which when touched turns the user into gold, making him/her temporarily invulnerable, and sending the now non-golden boulder crashing down the stairs of the temple. Getting hit by it causes great amounts of damage.

Mos Eisley

By crashing into a wall or by destroying it a secret area housing the R2-D2 droid and tactical droid is reachable. by driving onto a building and through a hole you will come flying out with the GNK Power Droid. By repeatedly crashing into the barrels you will launch homing missiles, these can attack you as well! The Ammo Regenerator is a shuttle which lands in the various 'ports' around Mos Eisley, making ammo hard to come by.

Death Star II

In the main trench TIE Fighters will attack you, by destroying them they will drop one of the three droids. There are also red 'teleportation' chutes in various points. The Death Stars superlaser can also stun and damage any vehicle in the 'dish' when it fires, although a warning is given in the form of hearing and seeing it charge.
