Star Wars was an arcade game produced by Atari Inc. and released in 1983. The game was a first-person space combat game, simulating the attack on the Death Star from the 1977 film Star Wars. The game was composed of 3D color vector graphics.
Assuming the role of Luke Skywalker ("Red Five"), the player piloted an X-wing fighter from a first-person perspective.
The game featured several digitized samples of voices from the movie, including Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker, Alec Guinness as Obi-Wan Kenobi, James Earl Jones as Darth Vader, Harrison Ford as Han Solo, the mechanized beeps of R2-D2, and the growls of Chewbacca. The game was available as a standard upright or a sit-down cockpit version, both of which were elaborately decorated. The controls consisted of a yoke control with four buttons — two trigger style and two in position to be pressed by the thumbs — each of which fired a laser positioned on the four leading edges of the X-Wings.
Development on the game started in 1981, under the title "Warp Speed", and was initially headed up by Ed Rotberg (of Battlezone fame). Rotberg left Atari in October 1981, after which Atari signed a licensing agreement with LucasFilm and finished the game.
