The player, that appears as Han Solo, is found in the front of the game. A desert is shown on the level background.
The player is crouching behind 1 of 2 crates. Stormtroopers come from the desert from 3 different distances, and each one of them shoot at the player every second. The player needs to shoot back and kill (or severely harm, it isn't really evident what actually happens) the stormtroopers. The player can also shoot the stormtrooper while it is in the air for more points.
The troopers cause damage to the crates by their fire. Once in a while, R2-D2 shows up and repairs the crates with a laser beam. If both your crates get destroyed, or you are hit by a bomb, you lose the game and surrender.
In the end of every level, a boss carrying a heavy rifle shows up. The boss, that has a large amount of lives, will pop up for a few seconds from random places. The game ends when the boss is defeated.
Starting at level 3, ordinary enemies also appear after the boss has arrived.
