Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back is the sequel to the famous arcade developed by Atari in 1983. The cabinet of The Empire Strikes Back was released in 1985 as an upgrade to the first one.
The porting to home computers happened 3 years later, in 1988, more or less in parallel with the other 2 games based on the original trilogy: Star Wars and Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. But if the third game follows a completely different path, The Empire Strikes Back instead uses the same engine as the first game. This means it's a first person 3D shooter with wireframe vector graphics. Of course, with different content and some new features.
This time you are on the planet Hoth, and you have to destroy probe droids and Imperial walkers, just like the movie. Later you will pilot the Millennium Falcon against TIE Fighters.
Unlike the arcade, the home computer version of The Empire Strikes Back was a hit, and it collected very positive reviews from various magazines.
In this Amiga version, you will control the game with the mouse.
