In this first-person shooter set in the Star Wars universe, you play Commander Kyle Katarn during Operation Skyhook. Mon Mothma has ordered you to a secret Imperial base on Danuta to steal the plans for the Death Star, which were ultimately delivered to Princess Leia Organa before her capture in Star Wars: A New Hope. Levels are fully three-dimensional, and Kyle can jump and duck. The game is full of familiar enemies, voices and sound effects, and includes some of the score from the Star Wars movies. A transparent map can be superimposed onto the screen to help you navigate. The demo is impressive, but short. LucasArts created separate archives for the opening and closing cutscenes, which are optional. Only one level is playable in the shareware demo.
