Codex Gamicus

Super Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, sometimes called Super Return of the Jedi, is a platform game for the Super Nintendo or Super Famicom which follows Super Star Wars and Super Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. There is also a simplified version for the Nintendo Game Boy and Sega Game Gear portable systems. It is largely based on Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi.

Plot and Gameplay[]

Super Star Wars: Return of the Jedi follows closely the standard set by the first two Super Star Wars games, with multiple playable characters and Mode 7 quasi-3D vehicle sequences. Controls are identical to the second game, and this installment also includes its predecessor's password save option. It loosely follows the plot of Return of the Jedi, although some of the levels aren't seen in the film at all, such as Luke Skywalker having to fight through the Death Star to get to Emperor Palpatine.In addition to the standard Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and Chewbacca, new playable characters include Leia and Wicket the Ewok. Bosses include the Jabba the Hutt's Palace door droid, the Rancor beast, and Emperor Palpatine. Vehicle sequences include the Endor speeder bike chase, and a cruise in the Millennium Falcon.
