Opening CrawlEdit

The galaxy is engulfed
in a devastating civil war.
But on the Outer Rim
world of Tatooine, crime lord 
Jabba the Hutt continues to
prosper amidst the chaos.

Involved in almost every
criminal venture, the Hutt
has amassed a vast fortune
through gambling, smuggling,
and other vile acts. Yet his
greed knows no bounds.

The Empire has outlawed the
dangerous Podraces, but
Jabba has devised an
even more dangerous
underground contest to
attract high-stakes gamblers
from across the galaxy
to his betting parlors on

Gameplay VariablesEdit

There are various forms of Health, Ammo and Power, which balances differently for each character:

  • Shields: They protect the hull. They recharge on their own. Look for the shield regenerator area in every arena to replenish your shield power (blue colored).

The hull cannot be repaired unless a R2-D2 droid is picked up. If your health is depleted your vehicle is destroyed and you lose the battle.

  • Weapon charge: By destroying the little white droids you can find weapons for your vehicle. Any weapon can be charged up to a fourth level. Standard attack consists of firing your weapon (uncharged). If you charge your weapon to the second level, you will fire for example, two missiles. There is a unique special attack on the fourth charge.
  • Ammo: Each weapon has limited ammo.
  • Lasers (Attack power): All vehicles are equiped with lasers. They can be charged too. There is a unique special attack on the fourth charge which varies depending on the vehicle. Look for the ammo regenerator area in every arena to replenish your attack power (red colored).
  • Speed: determines how fast you go, can be increased.



There is one of each droid in every level, you can pickup one droid at a time, and you can loose droids if certain ammounts of damage is attained in one go, however you can pick these back up. They are often hidden in difficult areas to reach.

  • R2-D2 - Powerup: Repair = Regenerates Hull
  • GNK Power Droid - Powerup: Attack power increase and quicker shield regeneration.
  • Tactical Droid - Powerup: Attack power increases and the remote will fire with a weak (no charge standard) missile on enemies.


  • Cloak = Turns player invisible for a limited time
  • Attack increase
  • Speed increase
  • Shield regeneration speed increase

Gameplay ModesEdit

Single Player Game ModesEdit

Battle modeEdit

In this mode you pick up to four computer controlled opponents (CPU vehicles) and the arena. The result affects your win/loss record.

Tournament ModeEdit

The Tournament Mode would start off with you facing one opponent, then two, three and finally four; the opponents are chosen at random as are the locations. To acquire a new vehicle, you need to pass the tournament with at least 10,000 credits, and if you are destroyed during a match, then there is an option to replay, but at a cost of 500 credits. If you are constantly losing, the tournament will end when you run out of credits. This is how you unlock locked characters and video clips.

High StakesEdit

In this mode you choose a vehicle as does the CPU. There are odds shown by calculation on win/loss records. You then bet credits until a player wins 10,000 credits or loses everything.

Hunt a droidEdit

In this mode you are given the task to hunt and destroy as many probe droids as you can within a set time limit.

Two Player Game ModesEdit

Battle ModeEdit

This mode includes vs. and co-op. In vs. mode, the game is over when one vehicle is destroyed. In co-op, both players must survive and destroy the enemy CPU vehicles.

High StakesEdit

This is a mode where you bet 1000 credits (both players) and if you win the match, you obtain double the credits betted. You continue until you gain 10,000 credits or when one player loses all of his credits.


Each arena has at least one ammo and shield regenerator, which can usally be destroyed.

Special FeaturesEdit

Tatooine - The Dune SeaEdit

The Sarlaac can be found in the Pit of Carkoon in the middle of the desert. When someone flies in or nearby the Sarlaac chews them, causing some damage, and then throws them away. Also, if you shoot the front door of the Sandcrawler it will open, revealing a droid you can take with you. Jabba's Sail Barge can also be seen flying overhead and Jabba's laugh can be heard.

Tatooine - Mos EisleyEdit

By crashing into a wall or by destroying it a secret area housing the R2-D2 droid and tactical droid is reachable. By driving onto a building and through a hole you will come flying out with the GNK Power Droid. By repeatidly crashing into the barrels you will launch homing missiles, these can attack you as well! The Ammo Regenerator is a shuttle which lands in the various 'ports' around Mos Eisley, making ammo hard to come by.


The entire army from the Battle of Hoth in the Empire Strikes Back is present. The Imperial Walkers shoot their lasers, but they can be destroyed. In the clear end of the battlefield, the Wampa appears and throws giant snowballs at anyone who passes by, causing little damage.

Death Star IIEdit

In the main trench TIE Fighters will attack you, by destroying them they will drop one of the three droids. There are also red 'teleportation' chutes in various points. The Death Star's superlaser can also stun and damage any vehicle in the 'dish' when it fires, although a warning is given in the form of hearing and seeing it charge.

Yavin IVEdit

Two temples host the ammo and shield regenerator, one of which has a floating golden boulder, which when touched turns the user into gold, making him/her temporarily invunruble, and sending the now non-golden boulder crashing down the stairs of the temple. Getting hit by it causes great ammounts of damage.
