Star Wars video games have always been varied and highly successful, but there are some that were pretty weird.
Star Wars Not only is it one of the biggest franchises in movie history, it’s also in the world of entertainment in general. Since George Lucas stunned the world in 1977, the galactic saga hasn’t stopped growing. Such was the success of Star Wars that it didn’t take long for it to transcend the original medium, from comics and books, to television series or video games.
The number of video games Star Wars published has always been enormous. Unfortunately there have also been a few cancelled, such as the famous SW 1313. But possibly one of the weirdest canceled games was one where you could handle the Ewoks. Many will remember these strange creatures that appear in Star Wars: Episode VI – return of the jedi, which came to have their own animated television series and two television movies: Caravan of Courage: An Ewok Adventure y The Fight for Endor.
The video game in question was called Ewoks Adventure. The game would have allowed us to handle one of those furry creatures in its place of origin, the moon of Endor. It seems that the players would have had to pilot a kind of hang glider with the aim of shooting down the soldiers of the galactic empire and at the end destroy his shield generator. in the purest style Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi.
The game had to be published by the company Parker Brothers and was intended for Atari 2600, but it seems that the making of the video game was full of complications. It seems that the biggest problem with the game had to do with its controls. The publisher considered the eight-way layout of the controls to be too complicated for gamers of the time. Despite this, the game’s programmer Larry Gelberg continued to insist that those complex controls be retained. This insistence was what caused the project to be canceled and the game did not see the light.
Despite the fact that the game did not come to light, it seems that there is a cartridge containing the prototype of the video game found in 1997, there are even images and videos of what it could have been. We do not know how the game would have been received, since the Ewokssince their debut, they were criticized a lot because it was a little unlikely that such creatures could defeat with sticks and stones the Stormtroopers. It would have been interesting to see a game as an original approach, but it seems that due to interference from outside the creation of the product, we will never know what would have happened.
