Star Wars  is a 1993 arcade game developed by Sega and based on the original Star Wars trilogy. Combining elements of A New Hope and Return of the Jedi, in the game players pilot a Rebel starship and battle against the forces of the Empire. Sega developed Star Wars for their Model 1 system, the same arcade hardware that powered Virtua Fighter and Virtua Racing. Like those two titles, the graphics in Star Wars are rendered entirely using polygons. The game was later released under the name Star Wars Arcade, as an exclusive for the Sega 32X‘s launch in 1994.
The first in a series of Sega Star Wars arcade games, Sega followed up the release of Star Wars Arcade with several other arcade games – Star Wars Trilogy Arcade and Star Wars: Racer Arcade, as well as a Star Wars pinball game.
The game has three levels which include intercepting TIE fighters in an asteroid field, destroying a Super Star Destroyer, and making an assault run on a Death Star. The arcade cabinet allows two people to play, with one serving as pilot and the other as gunner.
In Japan, Game Machine listed Star Wars Arcade in its June 15, 1994 issue as the sixth most-successful upright arcade unit of the year.
Electronic Gaming Monthly scored the 32X version at 6.25/10, describing it as a decent but disappointing launch game for the console. They praised the excellent graphics but complained about repetitive gameplay and limited movement. GamePro similarly assessed that the game is a decent demonstration of the 32X’s graphical capabilities but suffers from repetitive gameplay. They also criticized that the controls are convoluted when using a standard three-button gamepad and that in cooperative mode the second player’s cursor is difficult to see against certain backgrounds. Next Generation rated the 32X version of the game at three stars out of five, calling it “An excellent translation of a good game, and a good hint of what to expect from 32X
