Return of the Jedi - Atari 2600

Return of the Jedi: Death Star Battle – Atari 2600 Commercial

A couple of weeks back at the arcade we fortunate enough to have one of our regular Players gift us a Return of the Jedi: Death Star Battle cartridge for the Atari 2600. I knew of the game back in my youth of course but hadn’t ever been able to actually play it and I wasted no time in giving it a spin…on a live feed for the arcade even!

The results of my heroic actions were legendary…
Return of the Jedi - A Wing Pilot
Star Wars Explosion
…or maybe not.

I had a lot of fun playing the game however and while looking some stuff up I stumbled upon this commercial for it. Man, I would love to have owned that Rebel flight suit.

    My desire for that game would have only been eclipsed by my desire for that kid’s bedroom.

  2. Vinvectrex, I won’t lie…until you mentioned it I totally didn’t see how:

    A) Spacious that kid’s bedroom was!
    B) Filled with lovely, lovely 80s electronic treasure. :D
