Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back is the video game adaptation of the film The Empire Strikes Back for the Atari 2600 and Intellivision video game consoles, and the very first of four Star Wars video games with the same name as the film. In the game the player takes on the role of a Rebel pilot attempting to destroy AT-ATs on Hoth.

Each AT-AT takes forty-eight hits to destroy. Like many Atari games, it is near impossible to win—eventually the AT-ATs will reach their goal and the game will end. However, a long and complex cheat code will allow you to be invincible, and yet another will allow you to play as an AT-AT.
