Empire Strikes Back - C64 fan version

-"A long time ago, in a galaxy far away..." Or should we say: -"40 years ago, in an Atari game dev studio..."

Back in 1982, The Parker Brothers released their first game, The Empire Strikes Back.
The game was available on two popular gaming consoles at this time, the Atari 2600 and the Intellivison.
The gameplay was pretty much the same on both machines, you flew the snowspeeder around on the planet of Hoth and fought huge AT-ATs.
The Parker Brothers did create a game for the C-64 in 1983, but it was more similar to the vector game you could play on the arcades, and it did not have the name "Empire Strikes Back" in the title.
In 1988 the C64 game distributor Domark did release a game called "Empire Strikes Back", programmed by the developers in Vektor Grafix.
This version was also based on the Arcade version.

40 years later...
40 years after the Atari and Intellivision games were released, Megastyle is now proud to present to you:
The Commodore 64 fan version of the original Parker Brothers game "Empire Strikes Back".
We have tried to remake the Atari 2600 version into a Commodore 64 version, but also added our own touch to the game.
In this version you have to protect the rebels power generators from the walkers - just like in the original Parker Brothers game.
But on the Commodore 64 you will have to survive 8 levels and face new enemies not seen in the Atari version.
We have added cut scenes between each level, and if you are good enough you will reach the end sequence!

A digital Cassette version of the game (TAP format)
A digital Disk version of the game (D64 format)
An executable program file of the game (PRG format)
Digital instructions on disk (D64) or as a separate executable file (PRG).
