Attack on the Death Star is a Star Wars video game that was released in Japan that recreates the final battle from the Battle of Yavin, putting the player at the controls of an X-Wing starfighter. The music from the film was arranged by Yuzo Koshiro, who also did the music for the Streets of Rage Trilogy and ActRaiser.
The gameplay is similar to the popular 1983 arcade game: the first stage is a dogfight with TIE Fighters as you approach the station, second one makes you skim Death Star's surface while dodging turbolaser towers, the last one is the torpedo run down the trench.
The game features digitized voices (straight from the film) and 3D wireframe vector graphics - this makes the Death Star analysis sequence during the intro look nearly identical to original animation (created with analog computers) used in the movie (shown in the Rebel base briefing room).
