Super Star Wars: Return Of The Jedi (SNES)
Super Star Wars: Return Of The Jedi (AKA Super Star Wars: Jedi no Fukushuu in Japan) is a 1992 action platform run & gun video game developed by Sculptured Software and published by LucasArts for the Super NES console. It is the third and final game in the Super Star Wars trilogy and is based on the 1983 film Return of the Jedi.
If you’ve watched the film Return of the Jedi one too many times, you won’t get lost playing the game although there are a few tweaks.
As in the first two games in the trilogy, Super Star Wars, and Super Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, Super Star Wars: Return of the Jedi is still action-packed. The goal is for Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia and Chewbacca to rescue Han Solo from Jabba the Hut and in the end, destroy the Death Star.
You can opt to play as Luke, Han, Chewbacca or Princess Leia in each level. Another additional character is Wicket the Ewok although he only uses simple bow and arrow to fight off the enemies. You may even choose to change character in the middle of the game level since some are better at fighting specific enemies. For example, you’ll find Cheewbaca’s spins handy when killing bosses.
Every character has the ability to jump and attack using a gun or lightsaber.
Also, there are levels that would require you to control a spaceship instead of a character.
If you’re bored with Easy game level, you can opt for Brave or Jedi levels. You can also save a game using a password and start at that same level once you resume playing.

The characters are more detailed in Super Star Wars: Return of the Jedi compared to the first two game installments. Also, the main heroes have more tricks up their sleeves and costume enhancements. Leia, for example, has a detonator, a stick, and a blaster.
Luke has also improved a lot. He can already shield himself using a lightsaber. He is also self-healing and has the power to disappear. While these will lower his Force level, there are items available throughout the game to improve health or force power and even weapons.
The design for the initial stages, especially the one at the rocky mountain, could use some improvement. But overall, its look is fit for the Star Wars theme especially the maze stages.
As expected, the background music and sound effects have the Star Wars stamp on it.
The Super Star Wars: Return of the Jedi game has major improvements compared to its predecessors and is considered as the best among the three.
There are more things going on at each level which makes it more exciting. The characters are also uniquely equipped to attack the enemies as compared to the previous games. You may even be surprised to end up using Chewbacca in most stages.
Escaping the Death Star, the final stage, might be the most challenging part because of its 3D design. But overall, it’s a game worth playing on repeat.
Super Star Wars: Return Of The Jedi game has been ported to Super NES (this version), Game Boy, Game Gear and Virtual Console.
