Star Wars: Rebel Assault
A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away....Everyone is familiar with these historic words. Now Sega CD players can leap into the Star Wars universe in Rebel Assault from J.V.C. Musical Industries. A translation from the massive PC CD hit of the same name, this game gives you the chance to battle in X-wing lighters against TIE fighters, fight hand t6 hand against Imperial Stormtroopers, and even take on the Emperor's newest secret weapon — the Death Star.
Rebel Assaull contains the original Star Wars s movie soundtrack played by the London Symphony Orchestra. Sound quality is top-notch. The sound effects and character voices arc direct ports from the PC version. The game makes good use of footage from the original Star Wars film and does fantastic 3-D renderings of everything from donut-shaped asteroids to the trenches on the Death Star.
Rebel With A Cause
At the start of the game you find yourself in a period of civil war. Rebel spaceships have just won their first victory against the evil Galactic Empire commanded by Darth Vader. But the Empire isn't beaten yet. The Rebel Alliance is looking for hot pilots to help lake out Darth and his boys. That's the job, folks. Wanna be an X-wing jockey? Apply here. Take your training and help kick Vader's dark side. Can you hack it, Rookie?
Rebel Assault has 15 Chapters. The first few train you to fly and light with A-wings, negotiate an asteroid field, and dodge through harrowing granite towers of the planet Kolaador. Then you graduate to an X-wing fighter. Exchange fire with TIE fighters and ground forces 0n the planet Tattooine, blaze away all Imperial Walkers, light Stormtroopers, and eventually lake on the dreaded Death Star.
Rebel Assault has three difficulty sellings and a password save. You receive passcodes every three or four Chapters so that you can restart from where you left off. You can even Y-flip your controls (pressing Up takes the ship down) if you find it strange flying your various craft under normal controls.
For those who can't seem to get out of Training, the passcode for Chapter 3 in Easy mode is FALCON.
Bring down the Walker's strength by shooting its armor panels (along the body). The first hit lightens the panel and the second hit turns it gray. Then finish them off.
Fire at the targets while avoiding the rock below.
In the Asteroid Field, shoot the ice and dodge the rocks.
Prepare to learn how to shoot at ground targets.
Exit the cavern bay and begin your A-wing training.
Prep For The Death Star
Yavin Training preps you for the coming attack on the Death Star.
Avoiding all these granite pillars takes serious skill.
In Yavin Training you ride these trenches just as you would on Vader's Death Star.
Take out three TIE fighters while running the gauntlet on Tattooing.
Use all you're flying and targeting skill to swap these Probe Droids.
Against The Storm Troopers
Rookie one crash-lands on the planet.
Guess you'll have to go it on foot.
Here you choose between branching tunnels. Good luck.
Point your blaster and shoot. The difficult part is shooting at the correct height. Move your D-Button up and down after you have the target on the Storm trooper.
The guys dressed in what appears to be white plastic are Stormtroopers. Nail 'em.
Keep your eyes open — Stormtroopers peek out from behind things periodically.
