Just so people know, there was a cancelled Super Star Wars PC port. I would wager that it likely served as a based rather than the SNES version, but who knows what still exists code-wise. A leak of the game exists.

Also I saved the game on PS4, then started a new game on Vita. I paused, hit Load Game, and it loaded my PS4 save!

Buy this game.
Well if he used a blaster there would have been Tauntaun bits everywhere.

Wasn't sure on the Cross Save because it give you no message but that is awesome. Explains why the Vita tried to get on the network.

Does this game have cheat codes? I'll buy it if I can turn on infinite lives or something.
Nothing for code input.

when does EU get it?
Who knows. There was a blog post about it over the weekend indicating that it was due out this week but its been all quiet ever since... Kinda annoyed as I was looking forward to getting the EU version on my Vita. I'm hoping it'll turn up this week maybe in time for Battlefront but that's just wishful thinking on my part.

The first time I played Super Star Wars my uncle who bought it and the SNES for me said "I bet you can't beat the first level", and I did on my first try.

I then got stuck on on the sand crawler level for 3 months until a classmate told me to jump on the tracks:lol

Amazing game.

Okay I hate this.

I died inside the sandcrawler. The lack of original slowdown breaks the game.

It took me 20 tires to slide through one of the force fields and at the part with the squisher things your slide takes you too far and you stop sliding under the next one and take damage. GAH!

Let me try again.

God those dive bombing birds in the second pit jumping section respawn instantly. I don't know how I didn't die.

There are also several places I'm almost dying where I shouldn't even be low on health.

Yeah the lack of original slowdown breaks the game.

Edit: okay I'm getting 400 points for killing every regular womprat while fighting the giant mutant womprat and my 8x bonus I had earlier in the level is long ended. I've noticed a few tiny things along these lines already.

There were a couple of hatch things on the sand crawler I couldn't destroy too.

in case you havent made it past there yet

if you fire while sliding it cancels the slide and stops immediately, time the shot so you stop midway between the crushers

GAH this pisses me off so much.

Compiled list of broken aspects I've seen so far:

The main problem seems to be the original slowdown has been removed which unfortunately has wide ranging consequences

-projectile attacks are too fast to dodge
-enemies respawn too quickly(no reprieve from those dive bombing jerks while jumping across the pit before Obi Wan)
-inside the sandcrawler near the end where those things that squash you are, you slide too far and take damage from the next one no matter what
-I took a header into one of the force fields way too many times before it would let me through
-I landed in the spikes in Mos Eisley due to jumping down from the platform above somehow(not on purpose) and had my health drained in a nano second(was playing on Brave)

There are other problems I've noticed too:

-I fell in the lava while fighting the lava pit monster and didn't die(Although I do recall that did happen on occasion in the original)

-You seem to keep your point bonus multiplier for the rest of a level. I got an 8x point bonus a couple times and it continued the rest of the level
-Thermal detonators didn't blow up the brown block things in Mos Eisley.
-This:


That's all I can think of right now. Mos Eisley is as far as I've been able to get without rage quitting.

Excuse my shitty gifs.

Edit: for reference, I did this earlier this year:

What difficulty are you having all this trouble on?

also has bounty hunter been released yet?

Maybe on the same day that Battlefront comes out in EU? It came out in the US the same day as Battlefront's US date.
