Author's comments and explanations:
Hi, i'm sending you this movie of a japanese Star Wars game that wasn't released out of japan, it is finished as fast as possible (or as fast i could figure it out), the game is a weird platform game with some crosshair-shooting levels, i think this game is a complete "Alex Kidd in Miracle World" rip off cause the way it manages physics and inertia is exactly the same with pretty strange jumps, collision detection bugs, even the vehicles move at the same speed and the death animation looks suspiciosly the same. Hope you like it.
Bisqwit: I'm rejecting this movie because it does not look impressive.
The only entertainment I found in it was the exoticness value.
Crosshair shootings looked like they could have been much more impressive. I don't know if the controls were just bad.
I also noticed a mistimed ladder grab near the beginning and later on some disturbing delays. The delays could have been unavoidable - I don't know - but they didn't certainly improve the impression of the movie.
