Publisher's summary[edit | edit source]

"Luke, we're gonna have company!"

Thus begins the epic chase through the heart of the vast and deadly Imperial battle station, as Luke, Han, Chewbacca and Princess Leia battle hazards, stormtroopers—and Darth Vader himself—to Escape from the Death Star.

In this innovative multi-player/solitaire game, you take the role of one of the major heroes from the Star Wars movie. You must find your way off the battle station before the Imperials close in. Only Obi-Wan Kenobi and the Droids R2-D2 and C-3PO can help you in your fight. Your survival depends upon your skill—and the Force—as you race against time to disengage the tractor beam and reach the Millennium Falcon, your only hope of escape.

Escape from the Death Star recreates the dramatic fight of the Rebel heroes from the Imperial battle station in Star Wars IV: A New Hope.
