Storyline[edit | edit source]
Even with the advent of the Galactic Empire, Jabba the Hutt continued to prosper through his illegitimate operations on Tatooine. Always looking to gather more wealth, Jabba devised an even deadlier "sport" to replace the outlawed podraces.
Some chose to take part in the event of their own will, but many others were forced into participation by the crime lord. The participants and their vehicles were:
- Malakili - Rancor
- Wade Vox - X-34 landspeeder
- Tamtel Skreej - Desert Skiff
- Tia and Ghia - Snowspeeder
- Aurra Sing - Swoop
- Quagga - AAT
- Pugwis - Custom Podracer
- Wittin - STAP
- General Otto - AT-ST
- Boba Fett - Jetpack
- Darth Maul - Sith speeder
- Boushh - Speeder bike
- Lobot - Cloud Car
Each vehicle can pick up a weapon droid, either holding the following:
Each vehicle can pick up a droid as well, including:
Game modes[edit | edit source]
There are four game modes of Demolition:
In this mode you could choose up to four opponents to test your skills on and select which world in which to dispatch them.
The Tournament Mode would start off with you facing one opponent, then two, three and finally four; the opponents are chosen at random as are the locations. To acquire a new vehicle, you need to pass the tournament with at least 10,000 credits, and if you are destroyed during a match, then there is an option to replay, but at a cost of 500 credits. If you are constantly losing, the tournament will end when you run out of credits.
Hunt a droid
This is a mode which speaks for itself. Once you choose your location and vehicle and engage the droids in battle you will be scored on the number of droids dispatched within the set time.
Each player chooses a vehicle, as well as the CPU. There are odds shown by calculation on win/loss records. They keep on betting until a player wins 10,000 credits or loses everything.
Multiplayer Modes[edit | edit source]
This is a mode where you bet 1000 credits (both players), the winner getting the credits from the loser. You continue until you gain 10,000 credits or when one player loses all of his credits.
This is a mode that includes vs. and co-op. In vs. mode, the game is over when one vehicle is destroyed. In co-op, both players must survive and destroy the enemy vehicles.
Two Player Mode
In two player mode, some things change in tournament. For a start, you cannot be the same ship as your friend. Also, the tournament battle sequence goes 1 CPU, 2 CPU, 3 CPU, and then 3 CPU again. This is because every world can only hold up to five players at a time, including you and a friend.
Stages[edit | edit source]
