Star Wars was released only in Japan on the Famicom, and it's completely different from the American NES game that would come later. It's notable for having been released on a silver cartridge, though it's moreso brought up nowadays for the fact that Darth Vader turns into a scorpion in the beginning of the game.

It also, surprisingly, shares quite a few gameplay elements with Alex Kidd in Miracle World (more details here)

Unused Graphics


An 'exit' icon that was intended for the subscreen, most likely scrapped since exiting the screen is as simple as pressing start.


Holding Up and pressing A 8 times on the game over screen allows you to continue at the cost of 30 Force points.

Level Select

The Force is strong with this one.

For this code to work, you need to have a joystick connected to the Famicom's Expansion port. At the title screen, hold Up on the Joystick, Down on controller 1 and press Start.
