Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back
(Parker Bros.)

Grade: C- (73.24)

Commonly referred to as "ESB" this was the best selling of Parker Brother's Star Wars series. Though it belongs in the Defender genre, it is plenty original. Your goal is to defeat the onslaught of Imperial Walkers with your Snowspeeder before they destroy the rebel base on Hoth. Each walker can sustain a 48 hits, unless you find the "sweet spot" (the flashing box that sometimes appears). Your speeder can only take five. Every two minutes, you are empowered with the force and are invincible for a few seconds. If a walker manages to travel all the way across your radar screen, the base is destroyed and the game ends.
