Super Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back follows closely the standard set by Super Star Wars, with multiple playable characters and Mode 7 quasi-3D vehicle sequences. Controls are very similar to the first game, but with an enhanced double-jump. Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and Chewbacca returned as playable characters although the option to select the character was removed. Each character had the option to use a primary and secondary weapon unlike the original game and following one of the Dagobah missions, Luke Skywalker could collect and then utilise Force Powers in later levels. Darth Vader appears as the final boss.
